Cafes

96 degrees

So, we were thinking last night, where would famous footballers hang out in Leicester? This somehow led to the idea that Richie De Laet would go to 96 degrees. Not on account of their excellent cakes...


Chaiiwala

This ain't no place for slimming conscious yuppies who want a skinny, sugar free, specially decaffeinated, latte, mocha something whatevs. Chaiiwala sell Indian tea - full of full fat milk and sugar!...


Zhong Hua Snacks

Market Street and Pocklington's Walk is an interesting part of Leicester. Over the past year or so, many people have said that the area has become a bit deserted and run down, thanks to the...


Crustys

Ever woken up on a Sunday and thought to yourself "Where can I get a decent fry up in the city centre?" Yes? No? Well, last weekend, that's exactly what I thought. But then I remembered: Crustys....


Cafe La Blanche

So after a sort of hiatus for several months where barely anything has been written, we crawl out of the festival season with fresh vigour to head into the colder of the temperate seasons. New places,...


St. Martin's Tea & Coffee Bar

So, the vintage, twee and hipster style coffee house thing is done a lot. And some places have done it really horribly badly, specifically The Parcel Yard next to the train station; the insides of...


Sugarloaf Restaurant

This place describes itself on its website as Leicester's most happening restaurant. I disagree, since as I went it was empty but for my table. HOWEVER, it should definitely be more happening than it...


Tilt Coffee House

I used to really like playing pinball on my old windows 98 PC as a younger person. It had wicked graphics and you could make all the lights go cool colours if you aimed the ball right. As an old PC...


Yesim Patisserie

Going to places so it feels like you're on holiday is a bit of a theme here at Leicesteritsnotshit 'towers' (not that we have an actual physical office, we're too street and down to earth for that)....


Jones'

I said I was going to review my (as it's bloody freezing, two pairs of) socks off last night but instead I ended up going out to eat. All in the name of research, of course. And, as always, ok, as...


James' Cafe Bistro

Despite being right next to the Highcross, this place is pretty hidden in many respects but it's brilliant! I only discovered it recently when I went along with my ma and pa and was thoroughly...


Caff on the Saff

I think I like the name more than anything! What can I say, I'm a sucker for puns. Punning aside, the bacon cobs are spot on and the menu is your traditional 'caff' food of a very high quality, Ian...


Mrs Bridges'

This place is cute. It has really nice breakfasts. I really love Eggs Benedict and Eggs Florentine (not both at the same time, that would be far too EGGStravagant) and they're both really good here....


Roma Cafe

Roma is the place I can't stop myself from going to if I want a coffee in Leicester. The food is good and cheap for lunching and they've started a later service too for dinner. Personally I frequent...
