We had a cinnamon bun, a vanilla milkshake that was actually served in the metal container, a tuna sandwich on the most delicious bread we have ever had and a piece of chocolate pecan pie that was delicious beyond description. We cannot recommend this dining spot highly enough. The service was exceptional and genuinely friendly.

Great little lunch spot in the heart of town. I love this restaurant and wished it was open year round and for dinner as well. This is a must go to for lunch! Although the menu is small, there are daily lunch specials added to keep things interesting. Everything is made from scratch and the portions are generous and freshly... More

This is one of our favorite little bistro's to go to while visiting Annapolis Royal. Paula, the owner and chef, is such an amazing artist in cooking and hospitality is abounding. The sandwiches are more than a meal and we enjoyed strawberry shortcake last month....well, it was enough to feed two or three in one serving. Such a homey and... More

It can be a long wait for a table and to get served since this place seems to be very popular with the locals. The service was friendly and the food was good. We had the curried chicken sandwich and Thai wrap. Of the two, the curried chicken was better. We didn't have dessert but the strawberry shortcake was big... More

Food distinctly subpar in a town which offers many better options. Little seemed or tasted like homemade. We certainly won't be back.

Love visiting here for either a tasty soup and sandwich and/or a decadent dessert with Leo's is famous for. Saturday is a day when reservations are recommended as the town is full of market shoppers. Located in one of the oldest buildings in the town.

There were four of us eating Lunch at Leo's. We all loved our choices. I had the Mexican Chicken Wrap and it was delicious! Annapolis Royal is a quaint town with wonderful little shops and sites. Leo's is a great spot to stop for lunch - great food and friendly staff.

Wonderful carrot ginger soup and half BALT sandwich - just the right size and then my travelling companion and I decided to share a strawberry shortcake. We enquirer how big it was and were told it was"two biscuits" - seemed perfect for two to share. Be warned, when it arrived it was enough to feed a family of four and... More
