Welcome to Just Grand! Vintage Tearoom, Grand Arcade, Leeds

Welcome to Just Grand! – a little touch of nostalgia based in a newly decorated Victorian Arcade in Leeds City Centre.

Things may look a little different post lockdown as we’ve had to make some changes to comply with Government guidelines but we’ve made sure the best bits, as mentioned by you from your feedback and reviews, have remained.

As many of you know during lockdown we made some exceptional changes, one being the way we provide Afternoon Tea and the range of choice.  Home delivery started in December and it was a completely new concept for us yet we thrived and continue to do so!  Thank you once again we are thrilled that you enjoy our Afternoon Tea in the comfort of your home just as much as in the Tearoom.  So we have joined Uber Eats so that you can order even more!

There are a few things that are quintessentially British; tradition, tea drinking, home baking, good old fashioned service, a warm welcome and family ideals are among good customer service and we aim to excel them all.  Vital ingredients brought together to provide the best of British ‘step back in time experience’ at Just Grand! Vintage Tearoom in the Grand Arcade, Leeds City Centre. In fact what can be more British than a grand ole cuppa and a bit of homemade cake, or scone with jam and REAL Cornish clotted cream?

The Tearoom offers not only Yorkshire tea, but a vast array of loose leaf blended teas from around the globe – our supplier, who are a British company, has over 90 different flavours and we are gradually putting the more popular ones on our menu to let our customers sample the very best of British tradition of drinking tea as it should be drunk. Served in vintage china teapots, teacups and saucers, with tea strainers and a little love to ensure the blend is just right.

Customers can take this wide range of speciality teas and mainly cold light refreshments, with scones and cakes openly baked on the premises, in surroundings that give a feel for being in your Grandma’s or Nan’s parlour or a very British tea room. The tea room has an eclectic mix of period furniture and artefacts, mismatched china, tablecloths, background vintage music and friendly staff.  All in all to create a relaxed atmosphere in which customers can immerse themselves with a warm welcome and a good old fashioned service, where you pay at the end having a super day!

During the cooler months hand knitted blankets and hot water bottles are available on request for those who wish to take their tea and light refreshment outside in the indoor arcade.  Don’t worry we clean all items between each use to comply with Covid-19 government guidelines and general Cleanliness!

Whatever your reason for visiting us we will do our best to make each visit to our quirky tearoom an enjoyable experience.   We have partnered with Uber Eats for home delivery!

Our aim is to make you relaxed, just as I used to feel when I entered my grandmothers home – and immediately get that ‘hmmm she’s baking’ feeling.  Nothing beats the smell of grandma’s baking!
