I confess I have only gone to Leif's for breakfast but each time, I try something new and am never disappointed. The omelettes are out of this world and the pancakes are epic.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you. We are glad you enjoyed your experience. In checking the menu pricing which was a concern because of the price you posted you should have only been charged $6.49 for your omelette. If you were charged more...More
