Bottomless brunches have taken off in a big way for Leeds; you can’t move for them! Lost & Found hadn’t really been on my radar until I started digging around all the bottomless brunch offers and it looked like it had an unusual offering. The brunch is a bit more complicated than most (a small plate, a large plate + £15 bottomless Mimosas, Bellini’s or Prosecco) but there’s lots of variety and obviously more food = more happiness.
Lost & Found is on Greek Street which seems to be the place to open a bar at the moment; the inside has a bit of a Victorian shabby chic vibe but not too much you feel like you’re in a themed bar. It was absolutely packed when we visited on a Saturday lunchtime so do definitely book in advance as I’d be surprised if you’d get a table walking in.
With the bottomless drinks you can have a combo of Mimosas, Bellini’s or Prosecco so we started on the fruit juice fizz mixes rather than straight up (due to a few shandies the night before…). For my ‘main’ I ordered the Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese on Malted Brown Bloomer (£7.50). It was tasty for sure, very chivey and the smoked salmon was good quality but for £7.50 it felt like an expensive open sandwich and would have perhaps expected 2 slices…
For our small plate we opted for the only sweet one – Pancakes, Banana, Hazelnuts & Chocolate Sauce (£6). We’d both expected American style pancakes but they were the traditional type. Usually American pancakes are my bag but these were actually really good; the toppings were a nice combo but the whole hazelnuts were tricky to navigate with a fork, crushed would have worked better.
The service was great throughout the 2 hours and our waitress was lovely so a big shout out to her. The style of refill is more ask and ye shall receive rather than Manahatta’s which was top ups at the table so you can keep a better eye on how much you’re actually putting away.
Scores on the doors for the Lost & Found Bottomless Brunch? Food was tasty but not good enough I’d order the same dishes again, I’d maybe go for the Turkish Eggs or Vegetarian Breakfast instead. The place is cute and has a nice atmosphere so big tick there. The prosecco was flowing and they definitely weren’t stingy with the refills so would I revisit? Sure! I’d be inclined to try it with a big group as well as there were lots of large tables when we visited who seemed very happy. Prosecco party anyone?
