Taking over one of the most well known coffee shops spots in town was never going to be easy, but Five Fox Lane continues to be a Leicester hit.

The owners of Five Fox Lane took over the building off Humberstone Gate after it became vacant following the closure of Brucciani’s. A venue that holds memories for so many people from the childhood and beyond, it’s been a careful balance between maintaining some popular features but also stamping their own identity onto the coffee shop.

Situated in the middle of town, Five Fox Lane offers a great spot to grab breakfast, a bite of lunch or afternoon coffee and cakes. Some old favourites regularly make an appearance… we all remember the Lemon Split Iced Buns, right? But Five Fox Lane has definitely put its own stamp on things.

Grab a healthy jacket potato at lunchtime or opt for one of their newer brunch items, such as avocado & crispy bacon on ciabatta.

Waffles, homemade cakes, salads and more, make it a destination to meet friends at any time of day.

If you’re out with your mum why not treat her to afternoon tea? Five Fox Lane also offer a lovely tiered afternoon tea complete with their homemade cakes and freshly baked scones.

“Had a lovely afternoon tea here yesterday, Food was really nice , ample choice , and staff were really helpful, asking if we needed anything to just ask. Can highly recommend, will definitely visit again. “
