Friendly service here at Anands. A great variety of indian sweets, however, i favour the savoury snacks. The samosas when just prepared are magnificent. There are also pakoras to pick up, and a few other things, including a 'pie like' delicacy. Very very nice with the mint sauce.
They also have curries on the menu, but i am yet to try these.

There are a great variety of sweet treats available here. My favourite is the mint chocolate brownie warmed up with ice cream. The cakes vary a lot so there always seems to be something a little bit different.
18 Swan St, Leeds, England
An excellent addition to Leeds.
There are many different vegan options available at this relatively new cafe in Leeds. I particularly like the vegan cheese on toast and the excellent cakes with a coffee.
There are lighter dishes available as well as more substantial mains. The raw desserts are well worth a try.

I've been going to Hansa's on and off over the past five years, and have found it to be a decent restaurant serving traditional vegetarian dishes.
There's a thali that can be made vegan for £9.99 and is tasty and very filling. The spice bomb is definitely worth a try, and the other dishes on the menu provide a wide variety. If you're after a considerately prepared Indian meal this is the place to go in Leeds.
The Sunday buffet is also pretty good, it's alright for vegans, and they'll make some puris for you if you ask. Can be a bit samey though.

Good food, decent atmosphere and friendly service.
Visited The Thirsty Scholar after a delayed trip over from Leeds, so by the time we arrived we were very hungry. After looking at the menu, which had a good variety of dishes and snacks, it was immediately clear i needed the double breakfast. The guy who was preparing the food was very helpful, most of the dishes are vegan or could be made vegan easily. The double breakfast consisted of hash browns, toast, beans, mushrooms, two rashers, four (!) sausages, tomatoes and chips as well. Very filling and very good value at £6 something. I also had a coffee with the brekky too. Sarah went for the Jalfrezi with rice and naan. This was a good dish, which was, as it said HOT! She washed this down with a pint of Heineken, which was one amongst a good variety of beers available.
There were also a few very nice cupcakes for afters, which could just about be managed. After this we departed for the excellent Marble Arch pub, where we indulged in the excellent vegetarian/organic beers they sell.
There is going to be a new standard menu from September available from the Thirsty Scholar, and events with food are also in the pipeline. The friendly and helpful people will tell you more.
79 Great George Street, Leeds, England
An enjoyable encounter.
A delightful little shop, currently serving light lunches and cakes from Chestnut Tree and elsewhere. There are a few tables and chairs at the front, and it is easy to while away a little time in the friendly atmosphere.
Alongside the deli counter, there are a range of the usual wholefoods available too.
10 Grand Arcade, Leeds, England
Eating at Roots and Fruits.
This place gets pretty busy at week-ends and is pretty popular. There is an all day breakfast that is alright, sometimes a bit hit and miss (sometimes the beans are only warm/the mushrooms a little overcooked), for the vegan option you can ask for an extra sausage or hash brown instead of the egg.
Worth a trip if you're hungry, and it's the only vegetarian cafe in Leeds!

Enjoyable trip to the Brasserie
I was pleased at the variety on the menu when i dropped in on a lunchtime. Having an all day vegan breakfast option is always a good start for any cafe i think.
The smoked tempeh, 'black pudding', oyster mushrooms and vine cherry tomatoes added a little something extra to a breakfast i might usually cook at home.
In a few weeks i'll be making a trip to try an evening meal, check out their menu online.
PS Try the Hot Chocolate! Best i've had in years.
