15 Thorntons Arcade, Leeds LS1 6LQ, UK
The larger Kapow is in the centre of town, surrounded by bustling shopping streets and hidden away down one of Leeds' many arcades (very close to an excellent comics shop, it must be said). Spread over several floors – be mindful of the steep steps – Kapow is nonetheless somehow intimate. This is as much as reflection of the chatty, welcoming staff as it is the dark tones and quiet ambience of the place.
The coffee is first class and made with real care and there are snacks available to eat as well. If you want somewhere relaxed and calm just a stone's throw from where it's busy, with a superb cup of joe to boot, you don't need to look any further than Kapow.
