Sue Warburton and daughter Lizzie are opening the doors at The Kitchen on Otley Road on Monday, November 7.

Lizzie – who qualified as a baker at Leeds City College – will be behind the scenes creating delicious lunches, while Sue runs the front-of-house operation.

As well as the pair working in the coffee shop day-to-day, Sue's mum Barbara will be providing home-made jams and preserves, and the team will also offer outside catering.

Sue said: "I've always been interested in cooking and baking, and Lizzie has definitely followed in my footsteps.

"We have both worked in local food businesses in the past and offered catering services and cakes for special events together for several years. It's exciting to be moving into our own premises for the first time and we're looking forward to meeting lots of new customers."

The Kitchen takes over the shop previously occupied by the popular L H Fine Foods, which closed in spring 2015.

It will operate as a coffee shop first and foremost, but will also offer outside catering for corporate and private events.

In addition, people working in nearby businesses will also be able to pick up sandwiches and coffee to take out during their lunch breaks.

Sue said: "We'll be using the best ingredients from local suppliers to make all the items on our menu tasty."

"We'll also have coffee from North Star in Leeds, charcuterie meats from Lishman’s of Ilkley, and Jo Banks from Harrogate Garden and Flower School is providing the flowers for the shop.

"All our lunches and cakes will be home-made by us, and we will be offering a warm family welcome, too."
