Very nice meal to end a day at the annual Tea Party celebration. The Sunday Dinner sandwich was great and the Cream of Crab is as advertised; outstanding! We'll be back for sure...

I love cream of crab soup and their recipe is amazing. It is worth the trip just for the soup. We went for lunch, chicken salad croissant and crab cake salad in addition to soup. Cute little restaurant in downtown Chestertown. Pricey.

I lived in Chestertown for 8 years. There's no question about it, the Lemon Leaf has the best food, kindest service, and most affable welcoming owner.

Nice place to eat but manager needs to learn how to talk to people. She was yelling at one of the servers out where everyone could hear and see them. Very unprofessional.

My friend and I were meeting in Chestertown for lunch for the second time. We had planned to go to another restaurant but arrived to find its parking lot flooded after a morning of heavy rain. She arrived first and called me saying, "we need a plan B" and I remembered having read about the Lemon Leaf Cafe on Tripadvisor... More

The cream of crab soup was rich and perfect. The vegetable crab soup was a hearty tomato based soup, also delicious. The veggie burger... More

As a young professional I enjoy going out with friends and family. This can get expensive and sometimes not worth the time and money. The Lemon Leaf Cafe offers a menu with variety and that is affordable. I enjoyed the atmosphere from the ambiance to the friendly staff.
