It’s safe to say that in my time I have done my fair share of bottomless brunches in Leeds, some better than others, but all of them have been pretty fun. Casting my mind back a few years I had never heard of bottomless brunch but since then I have done a breadth of research and can say with confidence that I definitely have my favourites. In general, all bottomless brunches are fun as you have plenty of free-flowing prosecco coming your way, however over time I’ve come to learn that a good bottomless brunch is much more than that! So, whatever your priority is when it comes a good bottomless brunch we’ve got you covered.
The Best For… Food
East 59th is a New York style bar and grill situated on the rooftop of Victoria Gate. They are known for their American style dining throughout the day and their Manhattan inspired rooftop bar come night; boasting an impressive selection of drinks and cocktails. Compared to other bottomless brunch’s on offer in the city you may think this one is a little pricey; in order to have free-flowing prosecco you have to order two courses and pay an extra £15 however in my opinion this is well worth it. The food is second to none when it comes to bottomless brunch; you don’t have to worry about any small portion sizes or not finding something you and all your friends like. They have a vast menu full of breakfast items, lunches and grills with plenty of options for vegetarians too!
Bottomless Drinks: Prosecco and Bloody Mary’s.
Price: 2 courses from the menu and £15pp for free-flowing prosecco for 90 minutes.
The Best For… Groups
Manahatta has always been a popular choice for bottomless brunch, especially for birthdays and events. It is great value for money and you can be certain your glass will be constantly topped up, which is always a good sign at bottomless brunch. With two venues in the city centre you can pretty much guarantee you’ll be able to find a table. It is worth bearing in mind, however, that the Greek Street location tends to be the most popular and will likely get booked up first so if you have your heart set on this location; get booking well in advance.

You also have the option to upgrade to a bigger plate for an extra £5.

The Best For… Atmosphere
Another restaurant boasting New York style vibes; Neighbourhood is known for its parties and nightlife. Which is why it makes such a great spot for brunch if you’re looking for that party atmosphere. They are generous with the drinks here, so you’ll definitely get your money’s worth and have an impressive selection including cocktails and G&T’s as well as prosecco. The food is delicious but a little small at times, so you may want to bring a snack! However, if you’re only after a lighter bite it is perfect!
