Great service with a variety of food choices
Posted on 04 / 19 / 2009
Over the last 20-some years, whenever I'm visiting Ashland, I have always stopped in for breakfast. I am mostly-vegetarian, and I have appreciated their range of offerings, from the simple to the more elaborate dishes. I tend more to the simple dishes, so for breakfast I've usually ordered Seed N' Nut Waffle, Bare Stage (eggs, potatoes, bread), Tofu Scramble or Veggie Scramble. All, of which I've very much enjoyed. Basic, good quality food. Fancier meals, such as omelettes, frittatas, cereals, smoothies and more are available for those who would like to explore more than I have.
I've always gotten great service from the waiter/waitress - quick attention, friendly, and informed about what each of the many meals are. Recently, I found out that I am mildly gluten-intolerant, and so I've needed to tell my server about that. I have found the servers to be aware of the restrictions of gluten-intolerance, and they have been very helpful in being willing to suggest and provide substitutions that do not contain gluten. Not all restaurants are willing to do substitutions, and not all are as up-to-speed as Greenleaf.
I do want to point out, however, that although Greenleaf offers many vegetarian meals, it does not specialize in gluten-free. Still, I found that I could find good food, whether it was for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Of course, now when I order, it doesn't include those great Seed N' Nut Waffles or other breads, as they contain gluten. But as I mentioned, the servers are willing to substitute wherever possible.
Healthy food, A variety of offerings, Skilled staff
Not specifically gluten-free
