Everyone has a story to tell, and ours begins here. From each carefully selected item on our menu, the unique journey our coffee beans make and even the paper we print on, we want to tell you the Stories which we think make our cafe extra-special.

Stories is an independent cafe in North Leeds. Inspired by Scandinavian design and world cuisine, we’re offering some of the best artisan coffee in Leeds, along with a menu of small, delectable plates, cold-pressed juices, organic wines and cocktails.

Locally-sourced menu. Cold-pressed juice. Great coffee. .

We are child friendly, dog friendly, vegan, gluten and dairy intolerance friendly…come one, come all.

Cold-pressed juice

Our cold-pressed juices are made in-house every day using the freshest ingredients straight from Leeds Kirkgate market.

Our green juice containing kale cucumber, apple, mint, ginger and lemon is a great immunity boost. And for energy and vitality, our red juice of beetroot, carrot, apple and ginger does the job perfectly.

What is a cold-pressed juice?

Cold-pressed juices are a far superior option if you want a juice which not only tastes really good, but also does lots of good too. This is because unlike traditional juicers, our cold-pressed juicer has a twin-gear press system which, through (very!) slow rotations, presses and extracts the juice without out destroying the nutrients normally lost through heat production. Plus the cold-pressed method has a much higher yield so there’s barely any waste. Happy days!



We have handpicked all of our suppliers based on their commitment to quality and provenance, favouring the independent, local, organic and artisan suppliers who are as passionate about good food and sustainability as we are.

All of our packaging is made from recycled and recyclable materials and we donate our used coffee grinds to local allotments for composting.

We are a vegetarian cafe which also caters heavily for pescatarian, vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free diets.
