Crowded. Order and food is delivered to you. Very busy. Yummy soft drinks. Ahi sandwich good, but bun a little stale. Salads very generous and tasty. Good place for good fast food.

Not only are the choices plenty, the desserts are terrific and the staff is excellent. I have stopped in just to pick up desserts to take to friends and I typically end up getting more than I intended because they are so good.

Tin Leaf just "gets it". For lunch - we want casual and to control our own time, money and space. There are always helpful staff and many selections of fresh foods - designed for you or choose your own ingredients. It makes lunching with friends very easy….both inside the restaurant or outside around the fountain. Vegan or meat-eater. The portions... More

Good place for fresh salads and veggie dishes. Fine selection of sandwiches also. Moderate prices. It also has a nice outdoor area which is sheltered an usuable 10 months out of the year.

Setting: Located at a bigger strip mall at the side of a high-way. You have a fast food chain feeling when you enter or a high end cafeteria feeling of a corporation ... Patio dining outside available. You have to order your items and they will bring it out as soon as ready. They claim to cook everything at the... More

Two words...TinLeaf Salad! Just wow and super filling and nutritious! The stead was cooked perfectly too and the brussell sprouts were delicious. Kids portions are large and can be shared with two small children.

Really good salads and soups.Entrees are generally good and sides offer variety and interest. Staff is always friendly and offers good service. This is a line order restaurant with self service cold beverages. Meals are delivered to the table. Sometimes the line is long and slow. Atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. Kids tend to be very happy here.

Tin Leaf is trying to be like Urban Plate, which is amazing. Although the food is good, it's just shy of getting there. Quality is good, freshness is good. Just nothing great. Not a value for the cost. I don't need to go back.
