We just finished dinner at The Lemon Leaf. There was great atmosphere and great food. The choices range from a variety of salads to sampler plates to pizza and pasta. Everything was light and very fresh. The cranberry lemonade was delicious. We had a large group of 12 friends and the staff accommodated us immediately. Great service and a great... More

Excellent salads and sandwiches. And Lemon Tart for dessert is to die for. Service is prompt and everything you order is exactly the way you ordered it. Lemon Leaf does a great catering business and I'm always happy to see that they have catered an event that I am at.

My mom and I decided to go here for lunch for the first time just last week. Here's my review in PROS and CONS fashion: PROS: The staff was great! They were very courteous, friendly and seemed to be very concerned with making sure we were happy. The place is clean and just a tad tranquil... and a little romantic... More

This morning I craved an espresso. I ventured into the Lemon Leaf Cafe. The staff is friendly, welcoming and the service was superb. The espresso was served as desired and the egg souffle was very good. The portion size is perfect. I also had a cup of coffee. The taste was a wonderful and satisfying. A clean atmosphere to be...
