This place is really lovely. So many great food choices for vegan and vegetarians. I had the Jamaican jerk tempeh and it was delicious. The only downside was the kids menu, the options weren't particularly healthy. My son didn't eat his mushroom burger and there wasn't anything else that he could have. It would be great to see simple platter... More

If you are a vegetarian or vegan this place is a must while in Denver. The cauliflower tacos were my favorite! Good wine selection and very cool atmosphere.

We had two meals at this restaurant during our stay in Boulder, my husband actually requested the second visit as he had enjoyed the food so much on the first! high praise from someone not convinced by the usual vegetarian/vegain fare on offer at most restaurants. It was wonderful for me as a lifelong vegetarian to show him that eating... More

My husband is vegetarian, I am pescatarian. It is so nice to eat somewhere that we can actually consider the whole menu, we don't have to ask about ingredients (stocks, gravy sauce bases, etc.) and there is more offered than salad! Our entrees were beautifully presented, and very flavorful. I had the Jerk Tempeh, my husband loved his vegan "crab"... More

It is truly vegetarian. The service was good and attentive. The lemonades were tasty. The food was fine, nothing special though.

I'm not a vegetarian, but my friend suggested we try this restaurant, and what a pleasant surprise. They had two special soups - a tomato and cream of zucchini; we ordered both and they were both delicious. I'm not usually a tofu fan, but I tried a vegetable dish with harrisa tofu. It had a nice spicy sweet sauce which... More

What a great little treasure in Boulder! I have eaten here numerous times and love the simple, yet lovely atmosphere with a large, sometimes open, window. The food has never disappointed me. They have a limited menu and wine list but you will not go wrong ordering a small plate or a large plate. The food and service is amazing.

Actually, we visited twice during a week. Pretty decent taste. Clean and a sense of openness with high ceilings, glass wall opening to the patio and street, comfortable ambiance. When I go to vegan restaurants in LA, it is necessary to share the dishes due to their huge size for me. (I'm not a big eater, my body size is... More

I went here because my friend is a vegetarian. However, I am now considering vegetarianism because Leaf's food was so tasty. The kale salad and cauliflower tacos were so good, along with the pad Thai. Yum!

Went with my daughter and her boyfriend who are hard core vegans, but I am not. Got seated promptly on the outside patio which also allows dogs. Many great vegan options available for all. Myself not being a vegan tried the vegan french toast which I have to say was the best french toast I have ever had, vegan or... More
