Description: Leon's Cafe offers great food with fast service and very reasonable prices. We had breakfast there 3 times and it was consistently great. Breakfast included 2 eggs, 2 pancakes, 3 sausage/bacon and toast for $2.89. Choice of bread for the toast includes Greek bread which is thick and wonderful. Fastest service ever!

Leon's was right near out hotel, The Red Roof Inn. The menu was extensive, the staff was so friendly,welcoming and professional, the food was hot and served quickly. We had the pot roast special which came with boiled potatoes, fresh carrots, soup bar, salad and bread. It was all very good. Got some rice pudding to go since we were... More

The atmosphere was very relaxing. We went for breakfast on Sunday around 9am.. Large crowd but plenty seating. Ordering was quick & food arrived fast & hot. Serving sizes are large & the price is low. They offer a huge variety of food; even potato cakes, corn beef & hash. All of the waitress have nothing but a welcoming warm... More

We arranged to meet another couple here for lunch, and really found the whole experience excellent. The staff was very friendly and the food was excellent - one of our group had breakfast food, the others had lunch items. All food was excellent, at a reasonable price, and the portions were large. Their range of daily specials is quite extensive.

Friends recommended Leon's for breakfast, so we tried it on a recent visit. First, we could not believe the low prices--$3.29 for two eggs, sausage, ham or bacon, hash browns and toast. Then we could not believe the fun, friendly service. Clearly a favorite of locals, Leon's became our breakfast HQ for the duration of our visit.

It was a rather disappointing experience. I cannot imagine why this place rates #28 of 231 in Dearborn. The staff was extremely nice! The food was extremely average. The food quality made me think of "cafeteria" food, nothing fresh, obviously frozen or canned. I'm afraid I would have rated this establishment as "poor", but the wait staff was so very... More

This is a family restaurant that my husband went to 25-30 years ago when it was the Egg & I, he noted they changed the decor but the food was still great. They even have a breakfast and lunch bar. Great food, service, staff and prices.

Admittingly , I'm only in the area on Saturdays for lunch. I like a good Greek salad and theirs makes me :-) The large salads come with soup (or is it because the waitresses find me handsome? Ummmm....nevermind ;-) The breakfast bar is over the top - in variety and taste! Huge fruit assortment along with the standard favorites. As... More

We attempted to enjoy a family meal with 3 generations, and 15 people for Easter at this establishment. We were greatly disappointed. The food was not properly cooked ( Chicken was still cold) and the flavor of most food was horrible. This will never be an establishment we visit again !

We ate here while visiting Dearborn to see the Henry Ford museum. Food was really good and service even better! I had veal with spaghetti and husband had the angus burger with onion rings. We would definitely eat here again
