I pretty much agree with the other reviewers on the assessment of the food. As a vegan, I'm glad this place is here. I like most of what I've tried here, but very little of it is exceptional. My main fave is the Yangwich, a Boca Burger-type sandwich on delicious bread. I also like their carrot soup.

Some of their other meals are a bit hardcore vegan for my taste, though everything on the menu is well prepared, elegantly presented, and healthy.

That said, I love this place. It's a beautiful space with a great energy, an unpretentious oasis in the middle of Palo Alto. It's got a warm, progressive vibe (complete with library of vegetarian books!). Good place for a first date!

Another mixed review for the Bayleaf, here. While not a standout, the Bayleaf is a reasonably priced option which is clean on the eyes and palate. The pluses include the fact that it is an all vegan option in the South Bay area, the kind service, nice salad greens, clean tasting water, and Maggie Mudd ice cream!

Two other menu recommendations: BBQ Tempeh Sandwich (the homemade sauce is quite good) and the Curry Soup (delicious!). I would not recommend the quesadilla or the Artichoke Roll, but my opinions may be biased here because I do not care for "cheese" or large pieces of raw tofu (found in the roll).

Overall, I would visit again and recommend it to others.
