    I am so on the fence about Leafy Greens! I love the setting and the concept. I have only ever been able to eat from the buffet because I find the hours rather restricting and this restaurant is not open all that often. I am never totally sure what I am eating (despite the fact that the food is usually labelled on the buffet table), so I usually judge by my eye. Some of the dishes are totally divine, like the curry and the bread (oh my oh my that bread!) while others are a miss for me. Granted it could be because my brain and stomach are not used to a completely 'raw' dish. I have not been blown away by the drinks or desserts. The cheesecakes are so sweet and a tad difficult to stomach all by yourself. I wish they would not only use agave nectar as their sweetener because it can be so overpowering. I also find the buffet to be a little bit on the pricey side however I usually leave there with a serious food baby! I recommend it is a place you try at least once or twice.

    What a lovely setting in a garden. You feel like you're out in the country, its such a peaceful setting. The first time, I was a total 'piggie' and ordered 2 'raw' cheesecakes. The berry cheesecake and the Chocolate & Orange cheesecake. I had most of these 2 slices, but boy, they are super-rich. The filling is made mostly of ground cashews and although both cheesecakes were really good, just too rich for me. Share a slice with 3 friends. If you want a novelty drink, order the Fresh Mozambique Coconut - a whole coconut with hole in the top - you sip the 'water' through the straw and then eat the coconut flesh (or take it home). On another day, I had a raw pizza slice. Buckwheat & spelt crust, topped with artichokes, 'nut cheeses', avocado and dehydrated onion slices. OH MY GOSH! I practically inhaled that pizza slice. The onions were out of this world!!!!! At another table they ordered the whole pizza - it's a sight for sore eyes!!! If you don't order anything else, order the pizza. And make sure it has the onions!!! Although the pizza slice is not big, with the salad topped with a creamy dressing its a nice portion - and for R45 a must to order!!! My friend ordered the Gourmet Sandwich - oh my word! It was quite a generous portion!! 2 Slices of amazing gluten-free bread, topped with veggies and with a side salad. Absolutely amazing!!!!!
