5 places in Leeds to get your dessert fix
Winter has arrived! The time of year to wear oversized jumpers, snuggle up and most importantly – eat whatever the hell you want. This rule especially applies to desserts, with no bikini’s in sight, it is definitely acceptable to stuff your face with the good stuff without judgement – so we have picked five places in Leeds for you to get some feel good pud.
And remember: dessert goes to the heart, not the stomach.
House of Koko
Located in Chapel Allerton (and also currently residing at The Hepworth Cafe in Wakefield), if you’re not aware – House of Koko is an independent tea and coffee house, but also serves some superior desserts. They have a “cake bar” showcasing lots of different flavours and cater for vegans and those who are gluten-free too. So have your cake and eat it! (again and again and again)
Although Almost Famous specialises in providing taste sensations with their wacky burger combinations, there is an amazing creation residing in their dessert menu. This the Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich (also known as heaven on earth), which beware: is piled as high the sky, but go big or go home right? They also do ‘boozy shakes’ that are amaaazing.
Is it socially acceptable to go to a restaurant just for dessert? Who knows, but you should. The desserts from Kendell’s are DEFINITELY worth the trip. The French bistro serves up an amazing array of traditional desserts such as Creme Brûlée and Tarte’s, as well as plenty of other puds for the perfect comfort food this winter.
Blinok Pancake House
Pancakes don’t have to only be eaten on Pancake Day, and Blinok Pancake House in Guiseley shows you exactly why. They offer a huge of toppings, flavours and combinations for you to choose from – so you can eat pancakes to your hearts content!
Nation of Shopkeepers
Nation of Shopkeepers not only has amazing food and pub quiz, but also has amazing shakes and sundaes that are the absolute dream. There are lots of great flavours, including traditional strawberry and vanilla – but up there with the best has to be their peanut butter sundae… heavenly.
