Wife and I stopped in for lunch sandwich. Staff was friendly and quick. They made several adjustments to the sandwich without complaint or delay. Nice stock of unusual soft drinks and other drinks. It's a small sandwich shop with varied décor. Understand they have afternoon music during the week. Cozy fun place.

This is a great spot for hanging out with a friend over coffee; eating a yummy sandwich for lunch or relaxing with a cup of tea while surfing the internet. This is a place with a mission to help get kids on their feet as well. Make sure to check it out next time your in Klamath Falls!

I'd give it a higher rating if I wasn't an employee for a little over 4 months. I'll say that their food, drinks, atmosphere, and (some) staff are A+, although the products are ridiculously over priced for the small, middle-class town it's located in. Their management is terrible and I won't go into much detail here about that, but it... More

We just loved our experience at A Leap of Taste. We entered to a quartet and thoroughly enjoyed the music along with the great healthy fare. It's amazing what you find when you leave the I5 and the fast food behind. Relaxing, entertaining, a moment in time. Memorable.

In this tiny charming town, this place is a MUST. I loved the vibe of it, and the food was really fantastic. If it had not served meat, I would have bestowed my highest praise on it - a 5. But, I reserve my 5s for vegetarian or vegan places. I would say this is the coolest place in town.... More

I was on my way to Crater Lake and discovered this haven downtown. Friendly service, great food, and local eats (reasonable prices on farm eggs) in the fridge. I loved the gazpacho and half sandwich, which came with a chocolate truffle. Wifi, comfy seating. I asked about the local blue cheese and was offered a taste. Gluten-free brownies were good... More

I just started a vegan diet for health reasons. I planned to go to a grocery store and buy some very boring veggies and lament my new limitations. I was absolutely delighted with the vegan salads, dairy alternatives in the best coffee ever, and the very friendly service. I will be eating here again without a pity party.

We were passing through Klamath and looking for somewhere for a light bite. A Leap of Taste was perfect - delicious home-made salads and quiche, fresh juices, good coffee. Very friendly staff and fun decor were an added bonus. Worth a stroll around downtown Klamath while you're there

Super deli salads with a variety of fresh, often locally grown ingredients. Gluten free & even Paleo baked goods....so good! Very highly recommend. Kombutcha on tap. I have never had anything here that wasn't delicious. The staff is great.
