Temple Coffee is a hidden gem on the outskirts of Leeds that’s definitely worth searching for – especially for vegan with a sweet tooth!
Opened last year by the guys from Red Temple Prayer (a Leeds-based company selling cool merch) Temple is a one stop shop for quirky coffees, fresh donuts and cool gifts.
Situated in an off-the-beaten-track industrial unit in Kirkstall, the chilled vibe, unique goods and on trend décor means it’s a must visit destination.
The donuts served here aren’t just normal donuts, in fact they are like no donuts we’ve ever seen before. They are GIANT vegan delights in a range of unique original flavours. We’re talking Caramel Latte, Pear Drop, Cherry Cola and Galaxy Glaze. The wide range of sweet, fruity and salty “savoury” options (like Salted Caramel Pretzel) means there is something to appeal to everyone and, better yet, you can go time and time again and try something new each visit.
Even the drinks menu here is something special. Their pink drink (the Pink Floyd) and rainbow latte art (the Zeppelin) were made to be your next Instagram pic. In fact the whole place, decorated with cacti and neon lights is an Instagrammer’s heaven.
Each delicious donut is handmade and glazed every day, so they’re super tasty and fresh! Temple prides itself on having limited waste by expertly guessing the quantity to prepare each day. This approach can mean they occasionally sell out, but the team favour this as opposed to throwing away perfectly good donuts in the evening. If you are looking to visit Temple we’d recommend going early and checking their Instagram page for updates on how many they have left.
Since opening last year Temple has proved wildly successful and the popularity has even prompted them to widen their range to pre-orders, deliveries and late night opening on a Friday.
When you visit use Google Maps and Temple’s address (Unit 3, Burley Court, Burley Place, Kirkstall, Leeds) to make sure you can find them. Find all their info on Instagram.
