Welcome to Leonard's Coffee House

Situated in the heart of Durham City, we are a local coffee house with great food and coffee at our core.

With our 10th anniversary fast approaching, we are proud to be an established part of Durham's busy coffee scene.

We serve homemade food and bake fresh sweet treats every day from our coffee house situated by behind Durham's indoor market beside the River Wear.

Whether you live locally or are visiting Durham as a tourist come and visit us for breakfast or lunch or for a coffee and a slice of cake.

Our Coffee

Leonard's Coffee House serves a range of coffees made from its own unique blend of beans.

Sourced from the other side of the world and roasted in Newcastle's Pumphrey's Coffee Centre and Brewing Emporium, Leonard's coffee was blended exclusively for the Coffee House.

The 'Leonard's Blend' is roasted dark giving it a rich, full-bodied flavour with notes of chocolate and caramel.

What to eat & drink

We serve a range of handmade and freshly produced hot and cold food for breakfast and lunch including pancakes, granola, poached eggs, grilled sandwiches, jacket potatoes, salads and soup.

We make a selection of delicious sweet treats in our kitchen every morning which we serve on their own or alongside our range of hot and cold drinks.

Our Coffee House seats 50 people inside with additional seating outside and all our items can be ordered ahead for collection or taken-away.
