Leeds café-bar lays bold claim to city’s best quality £5 breakfast

Innovative Leeds-based café-bar, Iroko, is laying claim to the city’s best quality and best priced weekday breakfast. The top-quality breakfast uses locally-sourced dry-cured Yorkshire bacon, Clarence Court heritage breed Burford Brown eggs, homemade vegan baked beans, roasted portobello mushrooms and Yorkshire sourdough.

Guests can enjoy anything on the breakfast menu which includes Burford Brown Eggs (scrambled, fried or poached), Yorkshire bacon brioche roll, Smashed Pea and Avocado and Homemade Baked Beans served on gluten-free sourdough toast. The £5 deal is available Monday to Friday 9am to 12pm served with a North Star filter coffee or freshly squeezed orange juice.

Based on Duncan Street, Leeds, Iroko was formerly named The Vanguard and opened in January 2019. The cool, laid-back venue acts as a relaxed cafe by day and a chilled cocktail bar by night.

Alexander Neil, co-director at Iroko, commented: “Our brand-new breakfast menu is certain to revolutionise the way people eat breakfast in Leeds. We pride ourselves on sourcing the very best ingredients to ensure the menu delivers a quality experience, and at only £5 with a drink it is incredibly affordable. We’re convinced no other venue in Leeds can offer such high quality at such a low price. We make the best bacon sarnie in Leeds city centre and we challenge other Leeds eateries to create something as delicious at the same price.

“Our unique, design-led venue is the perfect place to for delicious breakfast meetings, freelancers who want to kick off the day in style or meet-ups with friends. Come and take our Iroko breakfast challenge!”

Iroko has become renowned for its unique interior design and its day-to-night moving back-bar, which transforms the location from a daytime coffee shop to a lively bar at night. Customers can also benefit from the only La Marozocco Modbar espresso machine outside London, which serves Leeds’ North Star coffee.

Iroko chef, Rob Higgins has more than 20 years’ experience, having worked at other popular Leeds venues including Malmaison and The Mustard Pot.

A family-owned business, Iroko is headed-up by brothers, Alexander and Jonathan Neil and their cousin, Matthew Sanderson, who opened the city centre venue with a vision to create a laid-back bar with experimental spirit. The family also run other popular Leeds-based bars, including Roland’s on Call Lane and live jazz club, The Domino in the Grand Arcade.
