The Platform Cafe

01509 632323


Great Central Road,
LE11 1RW


The Platform is our family cafe, just a moment from the gates of Leicester North station. For a full meal or just light snacks, we have the perfect venue. The bright and airy building has a lovely picture window giving views over the city, while outside there is a sun terrace and grassed area - perfect for younger travellers to let off some steam of their own.

To find us, head out of the station gate, turn right and walk down the sidings - we're then through the gate on the left on the Greenacres site. We're just a minute from the platform, so we're close by when you want to catch the train back.
