About LEAF on Portland Street
LEAF on Portland Street is nestled in a vibrant neighborhood in the very centre of the bustling city. Housed in the iconic former Riba and Cube gallery, it is an inspiring and intimate space, bringing the very best food, tea, music and good times to Manchester.
The initial welcome and tea introduction was brilliant. We were told that we could try as many teas as would like to. Food arrived and it was delicious. However half way trough our meal and having to had only 2 teas each we were forgotten by the staff. No one came to ask for any more drinks or to clear the table. We wanted to order a gin but again no one looked our direction. All the other tables were being seen to do. When we asked for a bill we waited 10 minutes and no bill came so I went up and settled at the till. I don’t know why service was so disappointing? The cafe was very quiet so it wasn’t that they didn’t have time to see to us. Quite a let down to be honest.
Food was fantastic, 6 of us and we all had a different dish, all dishes were tasty and well presented and just the right portion size. Will be booking again. Thanks
Delicious breakfast and a lovely, chilled atmosphere for a Sunday brunch.
Great Afternoon tea, pleasant and efficient staff, lovely surroundings, I will definitely be returning.
Leaf were extremely accommodating with children and dogs. Food and drinks were delicous and excellent value for money. The staff were also brilliant, I highly recommend going!
Great food in nice chilled surroundings
Everything was fantastic and Sarah was so helpful with my MANY changes to the booking. Much appreciated!
The food was delicious and service excellent. Loved the Bloody Marys and also the selection of teas.
Great choice of food and the flavours of the dishes were superb
Amazing food and great service! Will definitely return next time I’m in Manchester
Food was lovely and we were not rushed out
Interesting, tasty and imaginative food and drink
Lunch for 3. This was pre -booked - recommended by my daughter. We requested an alternative table to the one that had been reserved for us - which was in in a dark corner near the gents loo. This was not a problem and our preferences were accepted by relaxed staff. We all had a well-prepared, well presented and tasty lunch. The tea selection is vast. We were not rushed in any way. All in all a great lunch.
We had a lovely experience as a team and will definitely be back again.:)
Excellent food, value, service. 10 out of 10
We had a really enjoyable evening and the menu choices were really good.
Great service, lovely food.
This is my second time visiting Leaf and I'm already planning a third visit. The atmosphere is relaxed yet cosy, the staff are lovely and very attentive and the afternoon tea is delicious. The variety of drinks is also fantastic.
Excellent service and brilliant food! Will definitely be back!
Extensive brunch and drinks menu. Friendly and helpful staff.
I love Leaf. From the toasted marshmallows on my hot chocolate to the Moroccan dishes on the menu to the friendly staff!
