Last Saturday morning, I excitedly donned my newest outfit and made my way to The Cut and Craft Leeds, my go-to spot, for the launch of their much-anticipated weekend brunch menu. This upscale gem has always held a special place in my heart, seamlessly blending history, elegance, and mouthwatering cuisine all in one breathtaking venue.

Stepping foot into The Cut and Craft Leeds feels like entering a time capsule. The building itself exudes a captivating historical significance that cannot be ignored. Designed by the same visionary architect responsible for the iconic dome on the Titanic, this place oozes grandeur and sophistication. Fun fact: the very band that played their last gig on the Titanic also graced this extraordinary venue. The weight of history adds an undeniable charm to an already enchanting dining experience.

As I took my seat, my eyes danced across the pages of the new brunch menu. It was a tantalising array of dishes, offering delightful twists on classic breakfast favourites. The choices were abundant, but two items immediately caught my attention. I couldn’t resist indulging in the irresistible combination of steak and eggs, while my companion, Gina, opted for the timeless pleasure of a full English breakfast.

Our anticipation grew as our orders were swiftly taken to the kitchen, and soon enough, our plates arrived before us. My steak and eggs were cooked to perfection, with the juicy steak flawlessly complementing the sunny side up eggs. Each bite was a delightful harmony of flavours that left me tempted to order a third dish of French toast. However, as we made our way through our generous portions, our eyes proved to be bigger than our bellies, and we found ourselves comfortably satisfied, unable to indulge in another dish.

As we savoured each mouthful, we couldn’t help but immerse ourselves in the restaurant’s ambiance. The interior was tastefully decorated, paying homage to the building’s rich historical past, and radiating an undeniable aura of elegance which is the exact reason why I return here time and time again. The soft lighting and carefully curated decor created an atmosphere that effortlessly blended sophistication with a welcoming warmth and the perfect lighting to nail the best shots for your Insta’ feed!

Dining at The Cut and Craft Leeds has always been an opportunity for me to embrace my love for all things glamorous. It’s a chance to adorn myself in the latest fashion and indulge in life’s finer pleasures, while revelling in a dining experience that surpasses the ordinary. The combination of the restaurant’s storied history and the impeccable service provided by their attentive staff creates an atmosphere that is truly magical.

And here’s something personal: it was here, at The Cut and Craft Leeds, that I had my last sip of alcohol eight months ago, and I haven’t touched a drop since. So, instead of joining the early morning champagne brigade, I opted for a cheeky ginger ale in my glass to stay on track. It’s a testament to the inclusive nature of this restaurant that caters to all tastes and preferences.

As our plates were gently whisked away, a feeling of utmost satisfaction and contentment washed over me. The new weekend brunch menu at The Cut and Craft Leeds exceeded all expectations, and believe me, my expectations are always sky-high when it comes to one of my favourite hangouts in the city. It’s a culinary journey that pays homage to the remarkable history of the building while celebrating the art of dining.

If you’re searching for a brunch experience that effortlessly blends elegance, history, and exceptional cuisine, I wholeheartedly recommend immersing yourself in the delights offered at The Cut and Craft Leeds. Here, you can relish the flavours of a sumptuous meal while basking in the captivating allure of a bygone era. Trust me, it’s an experience that will leave you with unforgettable memories and a longing to return time and time again.
