Café Leo is a family run business located on the main market street of Westgate in the historic Lincolnshire town of Grantham. Opened in 2004 by Abigail Heath with the help of her friend Alex Kennedy and local catering student Paul Meakin, the café was initially opened with the intention of providing freshly made sandwiches, cakes, snacks and coffees for customers to takeaway, with a small seating area for those who wanted to sit in and eat. Although many customers enjoyed the take away service, the majority of people enjoyed dining in the cosy atmosphere of the café, and over the years the layout of the café has been altered to accommodate more tables, keeping the cosy atmosphere whilst still providing a take away service.
In 2007 the garden was opened giving customers the opportunity to enjoy their lunch in the fresh air and sunshine (some of the time!) and in 2008 Café Leo won the Green Business Award presented by the local newspaper The Grantham Journal for using eco-friendly products and endeavouring to keep energy usage as low as possible.
The café is now owned and run by Paul Meakin, his partner Jessica Vincent and his father Roy Meakin, and although over time the café has changed layout and ownership the core values of the café have remained the same. We prepare all our sandwiches freshly to order, all our cakes and soups are homemade, we support local produce and suppliers when possible (a selection of local produce is available for sale in the café), all our coffee & teas are fairtrade and when possible we use biodegradable packaging for our takeaways.
The café is open from 8.30am - 4.00pm Monday to Saturday for breakfasts, soups, sandwiches, baguettes, cakes, coffees and afternoon tea to eat in or takeaway. The café is fully licenced and is open for Bistro and Theme nights once a month, and is also available for private parties and Christmas dinners (during December of course!). We also provide corporate and private buffets which can be delivered to your door, as well as homemade cupcakes and celebration cakes for those special occasions.
We look forward to welcoming you in the café soon…
