Eating Out | New to Leeds - Breakfast at Bill's

After seeing soo many images of Bill's picture perfect meals all over Instagram and reading about them on blogs, I decided I had to see if it was worth the hype myself when they opened up in Leeds the other week.

So off we went 10am Saturday morning with our bellies empty and our expectations pretty high, excited to try yet another addition to growing Leeds.

Bill's Restaurant - The Venue

When I arrived I expected to be greeted to a bit of a hipster vibe, but was surprised to find it had more of a classic homely feel. 

The venue itself is beautiful - what used to be the Leeds Law Society is now a grande restaurant decorated with cute tins and tea cups, pretty chandelier lighting and other vintage looking pieces. I especially loved the charming looking bar area (and what a selection they had - shame we were there for just breakfast!).

The Most Important Part - The grub

So the venue looked amazing but what really matters is the food. We had a look at the menu and then came the struggle - what to pick!? I was wavering between about 4 options - the eggs Benedict, the blueberry and buttermilk pancakes, the full english or the cumberland sausage in a brioche roll. 

In the end the boyfriend went for the full Bill's breakfast of sausage, fried eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms, smoked streaky bacon and toast for £7.95. He toyed with the idea of getting beans and black pudding on top but couldn't part with the extra £2.50. 

I ended up opting for the blueberry and buttermilk pancakes with fruit, maple syrup and smoked streaky bacon which came to £7.50. The BF thought my choice of fruit AND bacon on the pancakes was a little questionable but what's a Saturday morning without bacon!? A sad one. 

I thought it was lovely anyway. My only complaint was the lack of actual syrup on the pancakes. The ones in the middle had been a bit neglected and would have been quite dry to eat on their own, but it wasn't a problem when I asked for more and the waitress brought me a little jug without judgement.

Overall I was happy that we'd paid Bill's a visit - the food was good, the service was perfect and it was just a nice place to be in. 

As they say on their website "Bill's have you covered from breakfast to bedtime" so we've already decided we'll be coming back at some point to try out their lunch menu. I've seen some amazing looking burgers on Instagram and their afternoon tea sounds equally as tasty (and not too badly priced either at £9.95pp with tea or £12.95pp with champers!)

I also think their homely, cosy feel will make Bill's the perfect place to visit over winter - particulary for a hot chocolate on a chilly weekend day. If I've made your mouth water and you want to check out their menu yourself or book a table then just click here.

What do you think of Bill's? Have you visited any of their other branches?

Thanks for reading & see you soon!
