It has been many years since I imagined that I’d one day like to open an independent coffee shop. A coffee shop that provides not only great coffee but a warm and welcoming environment, in which to enjoy it.

Not only great locally sourced food but a community, with whom to appreciate it. So it is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Woodlawn Coffee.

Our coffee is supplied by North Star Coffee Roasters based in Leeds a specialty roaster who are heavily reliant on their importers to ensure that they are working ethically when purchasing the coffee.. Our food We offer a simple menu that changes regularly, including fresh sandwiches a small breakfast/brunch menu and delicious homemade cakes. All of our produce is fresh and sourced locally and we cater for vegan and gluten and dairy intolerances.

Having grown up in North Leeds and lived in Horsforth for ten years, I’ve long enjoyed our town street but couldn’t help but miss somewhere I could pick up a great coffee on my way to work or lose an hour or two on a Sunday morning. And so the dreaming began... Now, ten years on I am delighted to be able to provide to others the coffee shop I would like myself to visit. To bring my two year old to enjoy. To share with friends, family and colleagues. I look forward to seeing you all soon.
