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!

Love the soup bar!

The soup bar is simply my favorite. Great daily selection and always fresh! I also like that Leon's gives back to the community in that they provide a Thanksgiving dinner to those who cannot afford one,

I was staying at red roof inn down the street, since they don't have a breakfast, I got the breakfast bar, pretty good, staff was nice, looks like wait staff knows the locals and very friendly atmosphere.. They strive on making people happy. Would go there again

We always go to this Restaurant. The staff makes you feel very welcome and our waitress (ask for Alice) is outstanding. The food and soup bar is out of this world. Leon's mostly caters to the retirees due their prices but everyone is welcome. Go try it!!

Great place to eat. Has lot to choose from can get breakfast any time. Love their daily specials and choice of 3 soups daily also. Ample parking and a banquet room available for large gatherings with friends and family. They give so much back to the community. Just before Thanksgiving they have a free Thanksgiving meal open to the public.

We really loved this place. Our waitress was wonderful--helpful, kind, and courteous but never in the way. The sourdough bread was amazing. The food was quick, very good and very reasonably priced. If we were here longer, or again, we would definitely frequent this place. It was the best place we ate in dearborn/detroit. So glad we tried it!!

It was hard to find a good breakfast restaurant until Leon's was recommended. We enjoyed good, hot food served by very friendly and helpful staff. The decor is dated, but don't be put off by this as the food was flavourful and was offered at a good price as well.

Excellent service, attentive, friendly, and helpful. You get a great deal of hot, delicious food for a very reasonable price. The omelet was flavorful, filled with cheese, bacon, vegetables. The fruit was fresh and flavorful. The French toast was sweet, dusted with cinnamon and sugar. Definitely return to this local gem!

The food is low end, hence the low price. Don't eat here expecting quality ingredients or well prepared food. Wait staff are courteous and attentive, BUT the lady at the cash register was rude and ignorant and condescending. We were told by our hotel staff that this place was great for breakfast so we went there and decided if it... More

The decor is dated depending on the day it can smell a bit like old people. However none of this maters once you have taken your first bite of any of the soups on the soup bar. The everyday food off the menu o can give or take but I always stop and eat the soup every chance I get.... More
