A Casual Food "Must" In Carlsbad!

We own a timeshare at Aviara Four Seasons & discovered this little gem by accident. We loved the fresh fare & huge salad combos. Add in the seasonal baked goodies; awesome Iced Tea & Sodas (with real cane sugar) and you have a great casual eatery that is worth a trip every time we go to Carlsbad... read more

My husband and I had a quick dinner here when we visited California for a meeting for his job. I have to be honest, I was looking for a bit of a "guilty" dinner...he wasn't. We'd both been working out but I wasn't really interested in eating healthy. Regardless, we had dinner at Tin Leaf and it was OK. I... More

First time at this casual and tasty restaurant. Liked it so well we came back two days later with our whole family! Fresh salads, fresh roasted turkey and much more at fair prices.

We often stop at Tin Leaf for a dinner salad or light meal. Order at the counter and the food is served promptly at your table. Popular with locals, the food is fresh and healthy.

After leaving the Omni for the next part of our vacation, we stopped here. The sandwiches were good (I loved the Thanksgiving on a Bun) and prices reasonable. It was a little crowded on Father's Day, but.....that's a good sign.

I ordered the salmon with mashed potatoes and onion straws . All was excellent but onion straws are probably best eaten in house and not to go. My daughter ordered the pork which was good with green beans, not quite cooked enough a little crunchy but maybe some people like them that way and fries which looked great but like... More

Great food, great service, lotsof options, and easy to have food made just as you want it. It is like the old Burger King, "have it your way" but the the food is way better as is the ambiance.
