(Published April 25, 2009) This photo shows the outside of Cafe Lento in Headingley, Leeds. Cafe Lento is a family business run by Richard and his daughter and they are proud to serve quality coffee (Lavazza Tierra) and home cooked food using local, seasonal and fairtrade ingredients.
The inside of Cafe Lento is a nice place to sit back with a coffee and relax with a paper. One wall is a well organised notice board for local gigs and Cafe Lento has both music and poetry evenings.
21a North Lane
I called into Cafe Lento in Headingley to get some photos for a future post on the Leeds Photo Daily and little later whilst I was drinking a delicious latte this chap came in. He is James Hardisty a photographer with the Yorkshire Evening Post. James was at the Lento to get some photographs for a feature the paper was doing. I said hello and it turns out he knows my friend photographer Lorne Campbell, we swapped cards and James let me take his picture.
James was kind and asked if I was happy with the pics I had taken, knowing he was against the light in the doorway. So I took another of him outside photographing the front of the cafe.
I will post more from the cafe Lento in Headingley, Leeds tomorrow.
