Being a blogger with a passion for food means I eat in some pretty amazing places. Living in Leeds I am very lucky and spoilt for choice of venues. Every now and again somewhere I find somewhere that I just know is “me”. Sometimes it’s the food, sometimes it’s the venue and sometimes it’s just the feel of it. Having brunch at Hyde Park Book Club Leeds is one of those places for me.
Brunch at Hyde Park Book Club Leeds – The food
All items on the food menu, including brunch at Hyde Park Book Club Leeds are vegetarian with a really good selection of it being vegan too.
I have the vegan chocolate waffles, chocolate waffles with syrup, blueberries and grapes. The waffles are thick, spongy and very chocolatey. Blueberries, grapes and syrup are the perfect topping and a dusting of icing sugar finishes it all off nicely. As a non vegan I can’t tell the difference between these waffles and regular ones.
Jennie and Lizi both have the breakfast bagel. This is a bagel with vegetarian sausage, spinach, avocado and egg. It looks and smells amazing and the egg is perfectly oozy too. I did almost regret my waffle order seeing these until they came out.
Charlotte has the book club brunch, toast with avocado, spinach, tomato, lemon, pumpkin seeds, olive oil and a sausage. Again this looks and smells so delicious and I will have to try this next time.
Brunch at Hyde Park Book Club Leeds – the venue
From the outside Hyde Park Book Club looks like a regular coffee shop. Once inside you realise it is so much more and lots bigger than you expect.
There are three rooms to Hyde Park Book Club. The first is a traditional looking coffee shop, with a counter for ordering food and coffee at. The next is a dining room with large benches to sit at, I always love this style layout as it really encourages communal eating and talking. The third is a bar area with the same large benches for socialising at. There is also a large basement with a stage and sound system. It even has a glitter ball!
My absolute favourite part of Hyde Park Book Club is all the books. There are shelves full of them along with cosy corners to tuck up in to reading. The books are all for sale and there is a huge range there, including children books.
As well as calling in for a coffee, main meal or brunch at Hyde Park Book Club Leeds it has a range of events there. You can see what is coming up over the next months here. There are singers, bands, jazz nights, poetry readings, exhibitions and talks.
Brunch at Hyde Park Book Club Leeds – final thoughts
Brunch at Hyde Park Book Club Leeds is a great experience. The venue is really homely, welcoming and unique. The food is delicious. Even though I am not vegan or vegetarian, I didn’t miss having any meat or animal products at all. Being an exclusively vegetarian venue is so different, I can’t think of any others in the area, and it really works.
I can see myself calling in for food, stopping off for a coffee and even sitting and reading or working in there too.
I will definitely be back to Hyde Park Book Club to try more of the menu soon. There are a few events coming up that I have my eye on too.
