We Are 164

We are known for our unique ciabatta and focaccia sandwiches, specialising in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern flavours.

Situated in a Victorian building on Woodhouse Lane, we are opposite the Parkinson Building of the University of Leeds under a big red canopy.

You can’t miss our red façade and neon; we have been serving the people of Leeds with sandwiches and coffee from here since 1994.

Our Sandwiches

We specialise in ciabatta and focaccia sandwiches. Our range of fillings is vast, and we have a huge selection of  vegetarian and vegan fillings. We use seasonal produce from local suppliers wherever possible.

Ciabatta + Focaccia

Every evening we hand mix and hand shape our ciabatta and focaccia dough, which is then baked overnight so it’s fresh out of the ovens in the morning, ready to be made into our sandwiches.

The recipe for our bread (first developed back in 1994), is simple, and designed primarily for one thing – to compliment a filling to make a great sandwich.

I’m glad we as an industry are communicating this stuff cos when we inevitably raise prices we don’t want it to be seen as a money grab.

We also had a delicious lunch from @Cafe164 - here's our order 😅

How’s everyone’s day going? I’m in London today attending a conference on how to do diversity differently in Higher Education sector! Pretty good lunch provided - but missing my @cafe164 sandwiches!
