If you're going to start a restaurant serving just salad, it better be good and it better be in Austin. Luckily, Leaf is both of these things. With the freshest ingredients building the base of each hand-mixed, personalized salad, you'll understand why this restaurant keeps winning awards and packing in the crowds. Their "Big 12" pre-planned salads are named for Austin landmarks, like the West Campus (Greek) salad and the Caesar Chavez (get it?). You're also welcome to build your own using their fresh, local produce, cheeses, seeds, and homemade dressings. Rabbit food never tasted so good.
Parking is a pain in this area of downtown. Best suggestions are to park in the meters along San Antonio or in the City Hall garage.
