About Arts Cafe
Art’s Cafe is Leeds’ original cafe bar.
One of the city’s favourite eateries, we have built a reputation of offering a high quality and interesting menu complimented by a carefully crafted wine list, beer selection and cocktail menu.
Located on the bustling Call Lane, our relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff have made it popular destination for both lunch and dinner. This atmosphere is complemented by regular 6-weekly exhibitions of artwork by up and coming local artists.
Our chefs work closely with local suppliers to source only the finest produce.
Flavours are bold, ingredients are fresh.
Our menu is seasonal and regularly updated; however, we make sure our signature dishes are permanent fixtures; including the popular Fish Plate on the lunch menu, our polenta chips and our legendary sticky toffee pudding.
In particular, we are renowned for our impressive vegetarian options that are both creative and flavoursome in equal measure.
Our Fixed Price Menu offers fantastic value and diners can enjoy two courses for just £16.00 and three for £20.00 all day Monday -
Thursday, and until 7pm on Fridays & Sundays.
The waiting staff were great. Really friendly and responsive. Very accommodating of our needs. Some of the food portions were quite small, especially the tomato and mozzarella starter. This particular dish didn't feel good value for money due to the tiny portion. Just a few more pieces of mozzarella and slices of tomato would have made all the difference. Or maybe a bit of bread or green salad with it. The fish main was beautiful. There was a 50th birthday on the table next to us who were singing and very loud. It would have been good if someone had asked them to keep it down a bit as this made it a bit rowdy and affected the atmosphere, made it difficult to talk. I really like Arts though and have had many lovely meals here and will come again.
Great food and a good choice of veggie options too
I have been coming to Art's since 1996. its a great place and never disappoints.
Lovely restaurant with wonderful food
Welcoming and friendly. A very positive experience.
Amazing food, service and atmosphere. Will definitely be back!
Great that there are many vegan options :)
So glad we chose to eat here after reading previous positive reviews. Food is excellent and extremely good value for money for the quality, interesting menu choices and portion sizes. The staff were friendly, attentive and welcoming and the restaurant had a very positive atmosphere. We eat out a lot and this rated amongst the best. The risotto is definitely worth trying - gorgeous! Many thanks for a lovely night, we’ll definitely be back next time we’re in Leeds.
Have eaten at Arts Cafe 4 times and cannot recommend highly enough. The food is delicious and the service is second to none. Thank you for accommodating a table of 9 on Sunday afternoon it absolutely made celebrating my daughters birthday with family a fantastic afternoon. Thank you
Been many times but Sunday lunch was very average. Beef had little flavour. Roasts had an odd taste and not fully cooked. Rest was good as was pudding. I'd go again but not for Sunday lunch
Beautiful food and excellent cocktails, really friendly staff and great value for money
I'm always impressed by the menu but a daily non-fish special would be good too. Otherwise the menu is exactly the same each time if you visit more often than the changes.
Food was really good, thoroughly enjoyed everything we ordered. Good value for money, we will definitely go back. Great selection of vegetarian options too!
Fantastic as always - delicious food, great service, and the restaurant is looking great with a brighter colour scheme.
Tasty food and good service lots of choice
We had a wonderful meal accompanied by lovely wine. The staff are friendly and helpful. The Steak with marmite butter is inspired. We both said it was the nicest steak we have eaten in a long time. I can’t wait to go back.
Great place today and socialize with friend's
The Arts Cafe in now under new management and as such now caters more for vegetarian and vegans customers, the food is very good however very little choice for meat eaters !
Great meal and good value on the early bird. Just didn’t think the fish and chips were as good as other dishes we have had here.
Gorgeous food! Lots of GF options which was fab!! So reasonable in price, friendly staff!! Will be back!
Good service and an lovely meal. I would be happy to back, when next in Leeds.
I have been coming to Arts since it opened when my husband was involved via his job with bass brewers, you have kept up the same standard which is why my family & friends keep coming back!
Catered for my awkward dietary requirements without any issues, thanks :)
Fantastic. Need mussels back on the menu!!
Service and quality of cooking was, as usual, first class. Always a pleasure to treat ourselves to a meal out here, will continue to recommend Arts Cafe without hesitation.
