Breakfast, brunch and proper coffee by day. Wines, cocktails and small plates by night.

Formally known as 'The Vanguard', Iroko (named after the type of wood that lines the walls) is a modern all-day cafe and bar in the heart of Leeds.

Food & Drink Menu

Some recent kinds words in the Telegraph from "Where to eat and drink in Leeds, recommended by local chef Liz Cottam" (of the superb 'Home', thanks Liz!)

“My favourite place at the moment. By day it’s a coffee bar with a load of wooden shelves with coffee and plants and things like that. But at 4.30pm, they push a button and the back-bar disappears and a new one appears with all wines and spirits on it. The wine is fantastic there. There’s not many places you’d go specifically to drink the wine, but whoever finds their wine is a genius.”
