Where is the best place for afternoon tea?

Afternoon tea is a luxuriously elegant affair and a real treat to indulge in. Leicester’s finest hotels and cafes offer some of the finest afternoon tea settings in the country, so treat yourself and some friends to one (or more) of the following.

  • Cafe Rouge serves a low key, relaxed afternoon tea - perfect for catching up.

Where serves afternoon tea with a twist?

If you’re looking for afternoon tea with a twist, Leicester has some quirky cafes to surprise and delight you and your teatime companions.

At the aptly named Kitty Cafe treat yourself to the company of some feline friends as you tuck into a teatime taster. The café is also an animal rescue centre, and a terrific way to spend time if you’re a cat lover. Just try not to take them all home when it’s time to leave!

For a more exotic twist, Charnwood Forest offers the chance to take a walk with one of its star residents – the alpacas. Take them for a stroll around scenic surroundings and unwind with a delicious afternoon tea – a fantastically unique way to spend an afternoon.

Where are the best cafes in Leicester?

There’s a cosy, colourful cafe in the city to suit every mood. Refuelling after retail therapy? Catching up over a cuppa? Meeting up for a bite before a great night out? Check out our favourite settings.

  • Cafe Rouge is located in the city centre, close to the King Richard III Visitor Centre. Influenced by its French heritage, Cafe Rouge offers a casual dining experience to suit all tastes.
  • Mrs Bridges Tea Rooms lies in Leicester’s unique historical lanes, a short walk from the Cathedral. The ideal location for a quick bite after a day’s shopping.
  • Paul’s Kitchen serves food all day in a relaxed and cosy setting south of the city centre. Only the freshest, locally sourced ingredients are used to create a mouth-wateringly luxurious range of lunches and snacks.

Where are the best bakeries in Leicester?

Whether you’re picking up your freshly-baked bread for breakfast, or stopping in for a sweet treat, Leicester’s bakeries are a vital part of the local community. Here are our top picks:

  • Gelato Village, located in St Martins Square, serves homemade gelato using locally sourced ingredients.
  • Giardino is a little further afield, but don’t let that put you off the chance to sample superb pastries, homemade cakes and cannolis.

If you like to indulge in a savoury treat, a trip to famous Melton Mowbray is in order. The home of the king of pork pies, Brocklebys Farm Shop is the final word.
