While a little pricy this is still a favorite spot for business lunch, visit with friends or a quiet place to sip a latte while working. It does get busy at lunch hour.

Great espresso and gelato (said by an Italian)! I miss this place now that I am back in London. It is a good spot a few meters from UofA

Love my canadase coffee at this place.....its the canadian version of the americano and it is delicious! Pizzas are thin crust and they have a glutton free version for those that require it. In the summer months there is a good variety of gelato to choose from. Brunch is a great way to experience Leva for this first time. For... More

It is a very popular place for people working at the university. Their coffee is quite fantastic - you get this nice cappuccino with creamy head... Their pizzas are great, thin crust, full of flavour. A mix of turkish and italian pizza done with style and success.

Decent coffee and service was received by the staff. If looking for a good coffee place near the university, and don't mind the hum for background noise, then this is your place. The only down side for me is that most of the tables are long, so having a private conversation is not possible when the restaurant is full.

I have been wanting to try Leva since it popped up in the University area, and recently met a business partner here for coffee. She raved about the croissants and I'm not one pass on a recommendation that comes so enthusiastically. I've never been a big croissant fan and didn't see what all the fuss was about until I had...

I came for a meeting and this seems to be the hip place to be with many of the UofA students. Most of the customers were sitting outside or inside at the long tables with their MacBooks. It was close to lunch so there was a bit of a line of people ordering food. The menus were located close to... More

I really enjoy the gluten-free pizzas; great selection of options as well as salads. Local and convenient, love eating outside on the patio and smell the food and coffee wafting out!! Great place to enjoy coffee, lunch or later day a glass of wine.

Finally had a chance to check out this hidden gem after all these years and I wasn't disappointed by all the hype. I came here with another elite Yelper for a weekend brunch. The weather was warm and sunny and she was able to get us seats outside at one of the communal tables. Perfect. I ordered a breakfast sandwich... More

Wow! What a disappointment. $6 for a cappuccino, that was just mediocre in flavour. It was so lukewarm, that even though I drank it super fast the bottom was cold when I got to it. And $6.75 FOR AN ICED MOCHA?? What a rip-off! The Danishes are better at McDonald's even! Just because it's pricey doesn't make it high quality.... More
