Eggs Benedict, omelet, waffles, home fries...it's all incredible! This is one of my favorite places for breakfast.

Everyone seems to know Leo's for breakfast but it's much more then that. I have had lunch or dinner here at least 100 or more times since 1998. The food is always tasty. I have never, and I mean never, had anything that was bland or a disappointment. Also, the service is always prompt and friendly. If you're passing through... More

I went on a busy Friday night and sat at the bar. The two bartenders, Carrie and Carrie were friendly and recommended the Pasta Primavera as their fav. I don't do gluten usually but did that night and it was very good.

Absolutely delicious! Everything on the menu is so good. We were visiting from out of town and came back here twice because it was so good. Great and fast service too! A must if you're in the area.

This place is old school and consistently good. Breakfast is standard diner fare for the most part, but because of the retirement community nearby (NY transplants), it offers some surprises like knishes and a true NY style bagel with cream cheese, lox and red onion. The pancakes here are FAR better than Chip's (supposed best pancakes in CT, but actually... More

Service was quick, not so friendly. Having one bathroom for all genders in a place this size is wrong. Forces waits. And requires more cleaning than it gets. Calling my sandwich a New York Pastrami sandwich enticed me to buy it. But Carnegie Deli it was not! Great fries though. Never encountered a pickle like that limp, bland imposter.
