‘The North Star Coffee Shop & General Store is an exciting addition to Leeds, one that’s going to set the bar for speciality coffee establishments – so go on, jump on the water taxi and check it out next time you need a seriously good caffeine injection.’ Ali Turner, Leeds List
Come and see what we are all about, just a short 15 minute walk from Leeds City Centre and with a multi-storey car park on site we are waiting to welcome you with the best brews in Leeds, fresh bakes from Nova Bakehouse and a seasonally updated food menu offering breakfast and brunch.
We offer two contrasting espresso options that are carefully prepared by our experienced team alongside a range of seasonal filter coffees prepared on our Marco SP9 filter brewers. Occasionally you will come across extra special micro lots that you won’t find anywhere else and have the opportunity to taste different processed coffees side by side to learn more about how this affects the resulting flavour. All of our coffees are prepared in a way to best showcase the attentive work of the farmer, if you have any requests or would like your coffee served hotter then please don’t hesitate to make our team aware of this upon ordering.
‘Watch the daily grind through giant glass doors and inhale the aromas while sampling a flat white and cake (baked fresh on-site each day), or indulge in brunch – the slow-cooked scrambled eggs on a buttery four-cheese rye scone is small yet deliciously decadent.’ Lonely Planet
‘Shining the light when it comes to great coffee in Leeds. Throw in some of the best baked goods you’ll ever taste and some great breakfast items and it’s the sort of place you’ll never want to leave.’ The Big Seven Travel
Our General Store stocks a vast array of items from inspiring manufacturers across the world. We have store cupboard essentials along with soaps and hand creams from The Soap Co and ceramic homeware from Grey Suit Clay in Sheffield sitting alongside the full range of North Star retail coffee freshly roasted each week (we can grind this on site for you to suit your preferred brew method), Storm Organic loose leaf teas and Kokoa Collection single origin hot chocolate. Absolutely every item has been carefully sourced from companies that meet our own approach with regards to quality and ethics and it is a fantastic showcase of other independent businesses.
