We were strolling along University Ave, Charlottetown looking for a place to have breakfast and entered Leonhard's. What a charming place; very cosy and bright inside. We enjoyed homemade French toast, real maple syrup, sausage, smoked salmon and delicious coffee. The luncheon menu also looked inviting and there is wonderful looking desserts in the showcase. We would definitely recommend this... More

The decor is so welcoming, as are the staff (then again, who isn't on the island!). I had the bagel with scrambled eggs and bacon with a tomato chutney and green salad. It was the best breakfast of my life. The bagels and bread are just amazing and the mustard vinaigrette is brilliant. Go here, a thousand times over!

Charming place to stop for breakfast, , brunch, lunch or afternoon tea. Something to excite your tastebuds on the menu whatever time of day. Decor - vintage with lovely hanging baskets outside and angel wings. A busy little place with a quick turnover and friendly staff. Beautifully clean and welcoming atmosphere. Don't miss paying a visit while in this lovely... More

Very nicely decorated with a sofa sitting area even. Delicious lunch food. We even bought a loaf of bread to go the sandwiches were so good. The perfect spot for a very good casual lunch.

Leonhard's is a charming cafe, decorated in a soft, welcoming style. We had read great reviews about the cafe and decided to stop for a late lunch. As other diners have mentioned, service was a bit slow, but our food was well worth the wait. We initially planned to order sandwiches, however, upon looking at the menu, we opted for... More

I love Leonhard's. The food os absolutely amazing. Fresh and real. The service is great. I work just down the street and I only get 30 minutes for lunch. So far I always made it back to work in time. More about the food... you will not find better soups, sandwiches and breakfast anywhere in town. I have never had... More

It wasn't until after we ate lunch here that I was aware of the number of recent reviews complaining about slow service. Yes, we did eat at the peak of the noon hour, but we ordered one of the specials and the server said "it will be right out!" Some 20-30 minutes later I was just about to get up... More

We stopped in for a meal, my friend, my daughter and myself. Our order was nothing hard, my daughter ordered a yogurt, my friend a sandwich and myself eggs and sausage. We did not understand why it took 30 minutes, and most of the people that came in after us got their orders before us. It was not busy at... More

Everything is FRESH! The greens come from the farmer's market, the bread is baked fresh, the coffee is brewed by the cup, the smoked salmon is actually smoked with smoke (what a novel concept). In short I went there repeatedly and was always pleased and delighted by the quality of the food.
