Unit 2, Bond Court, Leeds, LS1 2JZ
Moose Coffee was “founded in 2006. The concept grew from a love for the great American breakfast culture and nowhere does it better than the diners & delis of New York City. Our aim is to provide an American Canadian influenced breakfast and brunch experience with an authentic short order menu. From the classic Comfort Diner on 45th St to the cosmopolitan Pershing Deli at the south end of Grand Central Station, we wanted to capture the American & Canadian attitude to the best meal of the day and sought to create an eclectic mix of comfort food inspired by our culinary experiences.” Moose has a fabulous looking all day breakfast menu serving all sorts of amazing fare from the Might Moose (delicious homemade fresh potato hash fried on the griddle with garlic, onion and Dijon mustard. Topped with two Moose style fried eggs and three rashers of back bacon. Served with white or granary toast) to the Coney Island (Like native New Yorkers, a trip to Coney Island is a weekend treat. This is our classic Moose style boardwalk Hot Dog. A large 100% beef dog in a fresh roll on melted cheddar covered in our home cooked smoked BBQ pulled pork, slow cooked for 12 hours to a special Moose recipe. Drizzled with Cajun ketchup and topped with pico de gallo. Served with our delicious homemade fresh potato hash fried on the griddle with garlic, onion and Dijon mustard, griddled tomato and dill pickle) as well as eggs benedict, American pancakes and waffles (and lots more besides!). So many great restaurants in Leeds.

Sizzling Pubs do a excellent value breakfast with unlimited help-yourself tea or coffee up to 12 noon. You can go for the Sizzling Breakfast (Two juicy pork sausages, two rashers of grilled back bacon, two fried free-range eggs, grilled tomato, grilled flat mushroom, potato and onion hash, Heinz® baked beans and your choice of unlimited white or wholemeal toast with butter. Served sizzling on a skillet, or on a plate if you prefer), or just porridge or white or brown toast. You can also go for a bacon or sausage bap (vegetarian versions available). Or why not go for The Works – a toasted brioche bun with grilled pork sausages and grilled back bacon and a fried free range egg. Personally I recommend the sizzling breakfast!
Frankie and Benny’s
Unit A12 The Light, Leeds LS1 8TL (and four others in Leeds)
Frankie and Benny’s do a bottomless breakfast from Friday to Sunday. “Enjoy free refills on your favourite breakfast dish when you visit us before noon. So will it be the warm and fluffy pancakes, mouth-watering eggs benedict or the classic British fry up? You might have to put it to a vote!” There are some conditions on this offer though – while there is no limit on reorders, you do have to reorder the same dish each time, you can’t share and you have to finish before ordering more (fair enough!). The offer is not valid at airport locations or Edinburgh Royal Mile High Street. Make sure you get the offer from the website here. You don’t need to order the unlimited breakfast though, you can order regular breakfast too like waffles, pancakes or smoked salmon.
