Good, healthy salad fixings with homemade soups and salad dressings. Can get a little expensive since it is by the pound, but it's a lot of salad! Soups change daily and have been hot and tasty. Cup and bowl both available. Eat in or take-out makes it an easy stop for a good salad for lunch or dinner. Nice staff and helpful. Can taste the soups before you select. Sorry it's not closer to where I work!

I love, love, love salad bars. At most restaurants, the salad options contain meat or lots of cheese. But at Leaf you can pick & choose what you like. It even has wonderful stuff, like lox, avocado, & little potato-chip strips. Vidalia onion vinaigrette is awesome. Soups are great but usually too salty for me.

This is a great restaurant for families with small children. We lay out a napkin full of cheese, meats, & vegetables, & for a treat, the kiddies get an array of fruit. They love it. The staff is very nice & helpful.

My only complaints about Leaf:
1. It's really warm inside, maybe because of the large, west-facing windows or the heat emitted from having to refrigerate so many fruits & veggies. Be prepared to shed some layers of clothing.
2. I don't Leaf recycle, & all its utensils & plates are disposable. Healthy eating should also include healthy living, so I don't see why Leaf employees can't rinse & recycle the numerous aluminum trays with their plastic lids.

So my complaints don't have anything to do with the quality of the food, which is fabulous.

Just heard about this place existing. Hubby & I are trying to eat better so gave it try. Wonderful place! Everything was super fresh, veggies ~ fruit ~ soups. Only thing I'd ask would be more drink options but they will make smoothies out of anything! Salads are 8.49 a pound. Totally worth it! Shrimp, salmon, chicken, turkey....3 different soups. 16 oz smoothie, 5.49. Will absolutely go back!

I like this place a lot. The salad bar choices are broad and fresh and the soups are hot and tasty. It is not inexpensive but I consider the prices to be reasonable. If I have any quibble it is that the rolls could be of a crunchier type but, then, I am not going here for the rolls.
