New Cafe opening in Sir William Henry Bragg Building

A brand-new café is set to welcome new customers from the end of August.

Based in the Sir William Henry Bragg Building on Woodhouse Lane, the 1915 café takes its name and inspiration from the year University of Leeds alumni Sir William Henry Bragg was awarded a Nobel Prize.

The 1915’s relaxed and informal menu has been carefully created to offer a mix of both classic and on-trend options. Using locally and ethically sourced ingredients alongside seasonal produce throughout the year, customers will enjoy regularly updated specials as well as gluten-free and vegan options with regionally sourced coffee and locally handmade cakes sitting alongside more contemporary wraps and flatbreads.

Julie Tong, Head of Retail at Great Food at Leeds, said: 

“We are delighted to add 1915 to our portfolio on campus. The café space has been designed with the University community in mind, working with the schools of Engineering, Physics and Astronomy, and Computing.

The 1915 café offers a wonderful place for staff and students to enjoy light meals throughout the day or catch up on work accompanied by a barista coffee

As with our other outlets, the cafe will be opened in line with appropriate government covid regulations.”
