Café and Crafts
Family run café
A Leeds-based traditional craft cafe, we serve delicious home-made food, made with locally sourced produce, including a range of teas, coffees and cakes.
rivers MEET hosts a range of events in our function room, including craft fairs, live music and theatre.
Our function room is available to hire and contains a small licensed bar. It is an ideal venue for exhibitions, baby showers, children's parties, hen parties, funeral wakes, training, meetings, interviews and rehearsals. A variety of catering options are available.
The function room can also be used for craft workshops and rates are available for tutors to book the room and handle their own bookings.
Craft workshops & classes
We host a wide range of workshops and regular classes; from sewing and painting to children's classes and quilting. Looking for a regular 'drop-in' class? Why not try out our book club, knit & natter or W.I. meetings?
Additionally, keep checking our Events page for information on upcoming fairs, pop-up shops and more.
We are also home to The Shop at rivers MEET and we offer a wide range of craft supplies and gifts.
9.00am - 4.30pm every day
Monday to Sunday
From Saturday 4th July we’ll be back with scones fresh out of the oven, and lemon drizzle just drizzled!
For the time being, we’re implementing a one way route, with the front door for entry, and back door (shop door) for exit.
We're also changing the layout of the cafe to allow for the 1+ metre social distancing guidelines and
providing hand sanitiser on entry and at the till.
Don't forget we also have a large garden area at the back if you'd prefer to sit outside.
We hope to welcome you back soon!
Our counter is open daily for cake and drinks until 4.30pm
The kitchen closes at 3.00pm,
so please be aware that all food orders need to be placed before that time.
Please take care not to double park locally, due to legal requirements involving emergency vehicle access, thank you.
We're looking to expand our craft portfolio at rivers MEET.
