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.
Great menu - food was delicious. Service could've been a bit quicker. Will return,
Very disappointing. I've been to your original place in Liverpool as well as the cafe in FACT and enjoyed the atmosphere and tasty fresh interesting food. To be fair this was about 6 years ago I last went but it was a few times and always good. So I was excited to try your new setting. The ambience was awful - freezing cold (there must be no heating at all and it's a huge space with high ceilings so needs to be made cosy) with dingy lighting that does nothing for the ambience. The space itself didn't flow and is a wasted chance to make a lovely old building a great place to eat and drink. Then the food - boring and mediocre. Some of us shared the mezze board which looked like an array of cheap packet bought fatty nibbles plonked on a board with boring bread (no sourdough or artisan offering in sight either with the mezze or for my round of toast or my partners eggs and salmon on toast). My partners eggs were cold despite the food coming out worryingly fast. My toast was soggy granary bread and pre buttered. Service was basic - it was v quiet for the peak brunch time on a Sun but it took an age to have our half eaten food cleared. I will not be back and would discourage anyone else. Sadly I won't go back to your Liverpool place if I visit the city either. What went wrong?
Much prefer the Bold Street location, food was very disappointing, sparse and no where near as good as Bold Street. One of us had a sandwich which was mostly bread and no filling... I won’t be visiting this location again.
Breakfast for 6 yesterday, everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals, service excellent - lovely place, highly recommend!
The spiced green tea was stunning.
Really lovely – food, drink, service all great :)
Great service - thankyou!
Food and drink was lovely. Couldn't fault it. Service was good too. Only slight issue was that we had booked and we weren't asked whether we'd booked. I wouldn't have mentioned it except you're asking for constructive feedback :-)
Great service and delicious food 😊
Always love a visit to Leaf. great selection of tea and gin Food delish.
* Great communication prior to visit * nice that we did not have to pre-order, despite being a large group * a few things were not available eg avo, gluten free sausages - however food that we had was really tasty * super coffee
We had a fantastic breakfast meeting at Leaf which was made better by the amazing Bubble and Squeak alongside great service .... thanks
The menu offers a lot of choice and the food was really tasty. I really like the atmosphere in Leaf and they are always really welcoming and friendly.
We booked in advance for brunch to celebrate my wife’s birthday. I informed you that my wife eats low carb due to medical reasons. The breakfast was ok but no options were provided to replace certain high carb foods - toast, black pudding, potatoes and baked beans, so you charged for individual items - it looked poor compared to full breakfast. There was no cream for her coffee even though it was on the menu for a desert! All the alternative milks offered Such as almond milk contain sugars even though the waitress said they are sugar free - you need to train staff etc. As a Type 1 Diabetic the food was ok but not brilliant. Carb eaters it was great. Service was ok but weren’t told you order and pay for food at bar. All in all an ok experience but we won’t return.
Will be back soon!
Despite booking a table and receiving a reminder email the day before they had no record of a booking. Service was a lot slower than usual and a reminder was needed for a drink that didn't arrive with rest.
Really enjoyed our afternoon tea. Very nice staff and afternoon tea was delicious. Couldn't finish it all!
Pleasant but not great. Staff were nice and friendly.
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
