Top Taste is located near to a ATM and a 24 hour store, so the location is perfect. It is located opposite Aspely Hall student accommodation.
The food is not bad, but the 'taste' is not 'top'. It's just a regular take away. It also has a variety of soft drinks, and the waiting time is OK.
The cheeseburger I had a few days ago was disappointing though.

Cafe Ollo offers a good selection of fresh food, cold and hot drinks. It's a licensed bar, so and the have a selection of wines and beers.
Free Wi-Fi is an advantage, just collect your ticket with your login details at the bar.

I don’t like this station at all. I always get off the train here when I fly from Liverpool Airport.
There are no facilities at the station, only a waiting room. When you travel with a suitcase on wheels there is no easy way of traveling with it, there are only stares to the station.
There is one platform at the station and a ticket office.
Luckily there is a pub with friendly staff just outside the station if you need to use the toilet.
Burrows Walk, Derby, Derbyshire DE1 2PL
Zara - used to be a very god brand, but now makes loads of poor quality clothes, and uninteresting designes.
The shops layout is very good, there is a lot of space to move around so you don’t bump into other people like you do in Primark or River Island. Or Republic.
What I also like is that the staff is almost not there and dosen’t spoil your shoping experience buy askin 'May I help you?’ every other second.
While the shop is good, the brand is sadly getting worse.
Kingsgate Centre, King Street, Huddersfield, West Yorkshire HD1 2QB
House of Fraser (previously Beatties) is a very good British departament store, it is one of the 63 stores in the country.
At the moment of writing it sells clothes, kitchen items, 'home’ items and also has a restaurant located above the store.
I like House of Fraser, because it sells mainly high quality things, so you don’t have to go through hundreds of cheap, and low quality stuff until you find something you really like.
I am under the impression that the mens departament was better in the past, now it has less clothes, but mabye it’s not true.
It is sad that they don’t sell toys anymore.
Overall it a very good place to buy stuff for yourself or a present for a loved one (like a Fraser Teddy Bear!)

Currys Digital (or Currys.digital) is a store that specialises in consumer electronics. The stuff you will find there are mobile phones, laptops, computer accessories, digital cameras, mp3 players and so on.
What I like about the store is that it is in a very, very good location - the first shop on the left side, if you are entering the Kingsgate shopping centre via the main entrance. I always visit the store if I am in Kingsgate.
I hardly ever buy anything, because such items are much cheaper via online stores, but it’s a decent shop and the staff is also OK.
Westgate, Wakefield, West Yorkshire WF1 1PA
Wakefield Westgate might be one of my favourite railway stations. It is a small but busy station and reminds me a bit of an airport in that way.
It has got only two platforms that are in use, but there are trains coming and going all the time.
What I really like about Wakefield westgate is that it has a lot of facilities: there is a manned info point, a cafe, a ticket office and a rather expensive shop where you can buy magazines, drinks (% also) and sandwiches. Outside the station the is a taxi waiting point and an ATM.
There are also toilets, but I must say that they are very small (the mens, dont know about the other one).
I also like the 'A Light Wave’ artwork created by Charles Quick - makes the station recognisable in a split second.

Delikatesy Alma is a Italian supermarket, located in a micro shopping centre. The 'shopping centre’ consists of the Alma supermarket, a small newsagents and a store with expensive wine.
But I will focus only on the supermarket, due to the fact that it is the store with 90% of the clients visit.
I like Alma because it has lots of high quality products, and very little low quality ones. You just get the best stuff. It has a variety of international bottled beers, so you can try beer from Japan if you want to (not reccomended). Most of the stuff sold in the shop is food, but you will also find newspapers and magazines, on your left after entering the shop.
The customer service varies from one person to another, but in general it is not bad for Polish standarts.

The Debenhams located in the Westfield Shopping Centre left me feeling disappointed after my visit to Debenhams in the Leeds City Centre.
The store looks a bit M&S-ish, it needs some serious refurb. The mens department is just boring, but I must say that I have managed to buy some trousers there (with somebody’s little help, shopping for trousers is always a big challenge for me).
The overall quality of the products is good, but some items have a cheap feel. Having said that, it’s still not a bad place to check out.
6 Great Northern Retail Park, Leeds Road, Huddersfield, West Yorkshire HD1 6ND
This is the largest Currys store in Huddersfield, unlike the one located in the Kingsgate shopping centre it also sells household appliances and smaller kitchen items. The variety of products is average, but not bad.
An very annoying thing is that the alarms on the laptops go off very often making a loud and irritating noise, ruining the shopping experience.
Also the some of the staff hasn’t got the appropriate knowledge that you would expect form a person that works in a shop that sells electronics - one of the ladies didn’t know what a tablet is.
All in all it’s not a bad place to see a product you might buy from Amazon.
