Headingley is not without its fair share of restaurants, bars and cafes, but Love Rouge Bakery deserves an honourable mention. With its lavish pastel colours and vintage boutique décor, it serves up a range of hot drinks and sweet treats, not least of which are their cupcakes.
Baking up batches of every imaginable variety, there’s everything from your standard chocolate and Oreo crumble to the more exotic flavours for daring taste buds. Whether meeting friends for afternoon tea or looking for a gentle breakfast arrangement after a night out, Love Rouge provides cosy surrounds straight out of a Wes Anderson movie.
Based on the main road into Headingley, the quaint café has a unique identity in the city, and runs its own weekly film nights. This coupled with its vegan friendly baked goods makes it a great choice for those looking for a meet with less of a focus on drinking. [Edy Hurst]
