Beloved coffee shop Mrs Athas coffee shop to reopen after ‘securing the leverage’ needed for its future

And we can’t wait to welcome it back!

Mrs Athas is back.

One of Leeds’ most treasured coffee shops has announced it will be reopening, just a few days on from announcing it would be shutting up temporarily to ‘some time to take stock of what is going on and figure out a way to proceed.’

The announcement, left customers ‘gutted’ after it shared it would be shutting its doors for now because of ‘mounting costs’ and the knock on effects of ‘building works’ outside.

According to owners at Mrs Athas, this is having ‘an almost ruinous effect’ and has led to the shop’s weekday trade being ‘absolutely decimated.’

Now, in a swift turn of events, the much-loved coffee shop has announced it will be returning once more after receiving both ‘the coverage and the leverage’ needed to secure its future.

Reopening this Friday, the news was announced on Instagram this afternoon with a huge thank you to the loyal customers.

The post reads: “WE ARE COMING BACK!!

“The news we have all been waiting for! I honestly can’t thank each and every one of you enough for being a massive part of the reason we are announcing today that we will be reopening on Friday 7th July at 9am!!

“The response from our amazing loyal customers that got us the coverage and the leverage we needed to make sure that we could secure our future has been truly inspirational. Never thought we could make it happen this quickly! But here we are!!

“See you Friday!!!”

What is Mrs Athas?

If this is the first you’ve heard of Mrs Athas – we hope it’s certainly not your last.

The independent, family-run specialist coffee shop is located on Central Road just off Briggate. The interior is warm, welcoming and oozes that industrial-chic charm. By making their caffeinated concoctions with a rotating supply of beans, no visit will be the same but every sip will be utterly delicious.

Their beautifully ornate silver tea spoons are collected from charity shops and vintage markets along the way and these alone make Mrs Atha’s well worth the visit. The most picture-perfect sugar stirring vehicle ever.

And you may be wondering ‘Who is Mrs Atha?’, named after the owner’s Grandmother the cosy cafe proudly hangs a portrait of her on the wall alongside other framed pieces of art work and newspaper clippings.

The staff make you feel right at home and the seasonal food menu is enough to get your tummy rumbling with one glance, so if you haven’t visited Mrs Atha’s yet we urge you to do so now.
