Kardomah Leeds Cafe culture
The Kardomah Cafe
The Kardomah was a great favourite with Leeds people, from it’s opening in 1908, to its sad closure in August of 1965. Housewives would drop in for a refreshing cuppa and snack, as a reward for slogging round the shops – situated on Briggate as it was, it would have been convenient for Kirkgate Market, and maybe felt to be more suitable and ‘up-market’ than the greasy-spoon type caffs on offer in the market.
If anyone can any more details just drop me line...........
