We're a cafe and sandwich shop serving good quality food to eat in or takeaway in the heart of Holbeck's Urban Village. Taste was born out of a desire to make eating well quick, easy and convenient for those who live, work and visit the local area.

Good, honest food should be a consistent part of your working week – without compromising on time or quality. So, we take the very best local ingredients and make fresh, exciting food for you to eat in or takeaway, every day.

Busy lives mean our time is precious. That's why we champion a warm welcome, speedy service and quality in absolutely everything we do.

things we do...

good stuff

So often now, eating fast is associated with poor quality and exploitative practices. And this is exactly what we’ve set out to challenge. Our food is made fresh from locally sourced ingredients and suppliers, and we pay a lovely team well above the living wage to bring it to you.

Wherever possible, we use responsible packaging and ethical products, and we waste as little as possible. As a team of individuals who live and work in Leeds and Holbeck, giving back to our local community is incredibly important.

Our sponsored charity is Leeds Children’s Charity

Leeds Children’s Charity have been providing respite holidays and excursions for disadvantaged and socially excluded local children for over 100 years.

Holbeck is an exciting place to be at the moment and we’re always on the lookout for new ways to support local community projects. If you have any ideas, please do let us know.

Have you met Connor? Get to know our lovely manager

You may have noticed we have a new familiar face behind the counter at Taste. That would be our new general manager – Connor! Find out what his favourite item on the menu is and what he hopes to bring to Taste in the future!


Fallen off the healthy eating wagon?

Many of us start the year hoping to eat healthier only to revert back to our old ways after a couple of weeks. Despite our best intentions, maintaining a restrictive diet is time-consuming, costly and, well, extremely boring! But do not despair and there are simpler ways of eating well…


Introducing our new chef, Lizzie

Whilst she might be happy to go unrecognised and hide away in the kitchen, we thought it would be nice for you to get to know our new chef, Lizzie, find out what makes her tick – and of course, what she’s looking forward to making for the residents of Holbeck Urban Village!
