I am not a vegetarian, but I love to eat vegetables and eating here makes me feel great! Leslie makes some of the best food on the planet and I feel so lucky that she is nearby. I have several family members who are vegetarians and they always ask me to order from Leslie's catering items and bring it to them. The sampler's are a great way to sample her salads. Another favorite of mine is the Farmer's breakfast. I also catered Leslie's food for my son's birthday party and the salads were a beautiful presentation. Not the run of the mill catered food, which was nice for a party. This is a definite must try for vegetarians, non-vegetarians, people who like mediterranean specialites, etc. She has the best hummus I have ever had. Great job Leslie!
