While passing through Annapolis Royal on our 6 week trip through the Maritimes, we stopped in for lunch at Leo's Café. Having had seafood every single day and most meals, I spotted the veggie sandwich on the menu and it sounded fabulous. It was! The sandwich with a cup of chowder was the perfect lunch and it was great to... More

Dropped by for lunch with friends who know AR well and we weren't disappointed. The place is is an ancient building just ooozing history and the location on the main street couldn't be better, especially if you grab an outside table and watch people stroll by. Being such a small community our friends knew everyone and hardly a minute passed... More

This cafe was recommended to us by a handful of people upon hearing that my family and I were traveling through the Annapolis valley and now I understand why. We stopped in Annapolis Royale for lunch from Digby, on our way to cape split and sat on their sunny patio facing the water. It was a small charming cafe and... More

Good food but 20-something waitress was dismissive- long wait for lunch service, inaccurate order, had to go to the counter ourselves for correction of order. Delicious desserts but no prices for them and whipped cream extra (only saw that on bill).

Leo's is a charming little restaurant in one of the town's older buildings. Our meal was fresh, tasty and beautifully presented. We sat outdoors and I couldn't resist snapping some pictures of the their old fashioned flower garden. Definitely a nice spot to check out if you're visiting Annapolis.

We visited Leo's for lunch on a very rainy Thursday. The place was very busy, but we were able to get a table after a few minutes. We ordered the tuna melt and the Ruben sandwich with a garden salad. Both sandwiches were very good, but the garden salad was just okay. The house dressing was very bland. We also... More

Fresh baked bread for a wonderful BLT with avacado and a truly amazing blueberry sour cream pie. Would be my regular place for lunch if I lived there.

We had lunch at Leo's about a week ago, recommended by a local. Lovely little rustic cafe with a small patio. Service was good, staff friendly. We had wonderfully tasty sandwiches and at the insistence of the local who recommended Leo's, 'must have the shortcake'. We were expecting large from what we had been told and we planned on sharing... More

The hosts at my B&B recommended Leo's. I had the vegetation sandwich with the sunflower seed paste and it was delicious.
