Leo's is everything you'd want in a lunch café. Offering reasonable prices for a tourist town, the lunch sandwiches and soups were tasty and healthy. I'm a pretty big guy and left satisfied. Leo's also offered a nice selection of desserts which go well with Illy brand espresso. I was surprised they went with Van Houtte coffee with Just Us... More

My wife and I had lunch here. The Café is located on the main street. There is likely a dearth of parking during the tourist season. I had the fish pie, which was absolutely scrumptious. My wife had the veggie sandwich which was also tasty. It is obvious that the bread is fresh baked. The meals have the “home made”... More

Average place for a quick lunch but too crowded & noisy. Service is good, fare is simple & inexpensive.

Great sandwiches on home made 12 grain bread. I had curried chicken pecans and apricots, my husband had egg salad. Delicious coffee.

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
