In 2011 we bought a little cafe in Leeds. Our only aim was to cook high quality, seasonal ingredients and share our passion and enthusiasm for food with others. We don't take bookings during the day - just pop in and say hello!

  • breakfast & brunch

    We quickly became known for our breakfasts, cooked to order using the best ingredients. Over time we've extended our menus to include specials from our own recipe Black Pudding, House Merguez or Spicy Cornbread.

  • our food

    We're very lucky to be part of a thriving independent food scene in Leeds. It's important to us that we work with other like-minded indies to grow our community. You'll find our coffee is from local roasters North Star, our bread is from Leeds Bread Co-op. Fish and Meat are sourced from Tarbetts and Sykes house farm.

2018 is going to be the year that The Pig tackles waste. Here's a selection of our takeaway packaging. As you can see coffee cups are just the tip of the packaging iceberg. But it's as good a place to start as any.
We're not totally on board with plans for a "latte levey" but what we would like to see is some local indie business tackling the problem creatively - cos after all we are nothing if not creative, known for coming up with a different approach to difficult problems.
All our packaging at The Pig is biodegradable but as many of you know, a lot of that depends on the packaging being disposed of in the correct way. We're going to be talking about this a lot in the coming days, weeks and months.
We're on a learning curve here so we're open to suggestions, we're encouraging it even. But we're looking for other indies to join us and see what we can all do together to stop the waste.

Great stuff. I’ve spent a lot of getting last week looking into the same issues for G&J. Happy to kick around ideas.

Excellent news! Sharing information on so-called biodegradable packaging is key – so many indie’s in Leeds invest in ‘eco’ brands such as Vegware with the best of intentions but don’t understand the negative consequences of disposing bioplastics incorrectly. Do you have a waste disposal contract? Or seems as it is take-out packaging is there no need? I run a zero waste online shop from Leeds and would be happy to help in any way.

Could also do 20p or so discount for byo keepcup or mug

There are a number of different schemes that could be used, we don't need to only have one incentive. However we've offered a discount before and it works for a bit and then for whatever reason it trails off. This tends to only tackle the "morning coffee on the way to work" buyer. We need something that will help people recycle when they buy coffee on impulse. It's a tricky issue but one that does need to be tackled.

Every purchase with a reusable cup gets a 20p discount and an entry into a raffle to have a meal for 2 at the swine that dines?

Could also offer a discount if people bring their own containers for other things? Really glad to see you're looking into your waste! I've decided 2018 is the year too, and hoping to open a zero (minimal) waste shop soon 😀

Hi guys, I agree that the main problem is what people do with the cup after thay have finished with it. You guys are doing your bit but you are relying on other people to dispose of them properly. Even though people are starting to take notice of the problem its a big ask for them to find a compost heap in town once they have finished their coffee! If more and more of this packaging is being used (which it will) the council should be putting plans in motion for compost bins in the city. Then people can dispose of their packaging correctly? You could sponser them, Greedy Bins! Not sure how realistic it is though
