Rabbit Hole Coffee was born in 2016 as a travelling coffee shop and Espresso Martini bar. Two friends, Robbie & Ste, bought a trailer for £78, made it into a vessel capable of serving tremendous coffee and started getting asked to do corporate events in London, Manchester, Newcastle, Sheffield. Since lockdown, they have been serving coffee as a pop up shop in Leeds, so now you can found them all around the city in different locations. In Oakwood the Rabbit Hole Coffee can be found inside Pizza Loco on Roundhay Road. They also have a site at Harvey Nichols in the Victoria Quarter, Leeds city centre. Recently they opened their first very own shop on Stainburn Parade in Moortown! And now – meet them at the Thackray Museum of Medicine.

The new sandwich menu is available now, and Thackray Museum of Medicine looks forward to welcoming visitors to enjoy Rabbit Hole Coffee’s delicious food and drink.
