This was my first visit to this restaurant, but it won't be my last. Had an early morning Sunday brunch before heading to the outlets for shopping. Even though it was cool and camp, we decided to eat in the Secret Garden. The heater was on and it was a wonderful experience. Looking forward to our next visit.

Overall the experience was very good. My chicken salad was satisfying, well made, and a nice combination of flavors and textures. The truffle fries were disappointing - undistinguished Parmesan - but the truffle oil was tasty. The other members of the party enjoyed their dishes for brunch.

Yesterday I met a few friends for lunch at Shoes. I had made a reservation upstairs in advance which was ready and on time. Our waiter (forgot his name) was friendly, helpful, made recommendations and was very attentive to our group. He willingly offered to take a group photo for us. I appreciated his attentiveness to the timing of our food, refilling drinks, offering dessert/coffee. It was a very pleasant experience and we enjoyed having him as our waiter! Will return the next time I'm in Leesburg. So nice to eat in a restaurant that's NOT a chain!

We really enjoyed our brunch here! I liked that the food wasn't trying too hard to be creative like so many places. They stick with the classics with some added elements to make it special, without being over-the-top. I liked that they had highchairs available for our daughter, but hauling her up the steep stairs was not ideal. Totally worth it though! I love the atmosphere and the antique decor.

This was our first time eating here & it was so good! Definitely reserve your table, as it was very busy. Upstairs is very intimate (quieter, tables close together) so if you're a loud talker or there with a large group/kids, consider sitting on the patio.

This was the second time I went to Shoe's Cup & Cork and I was very disappointed. The food was not as fresh as it was the first time and it took almost an hour to get our food. It was a busier time so maybe the cooks and/or waiters could not keep up with the amount of people. Also, we wanted the special of three different muffins but they only had two choices. One of the muffins had walnuts which my friend is allergic to so she could only enjoy one. (So much for the special.) It would have been nice if our waitress or menu warned us about the walnuts due to nut allergies.

It was our second visit. Love the secret garden, but it was raining and the umbrellas didn’t really hold the rain back guise enough. Drink more wine and it’s good! Food is okay for dinner. Love this place for coffee, biscuits and pastry. It’s not to be missed, but all day menu is just okay.
Lovely servers. Special place

We came into Leesburg for a lacrosse tournament and could have been the reservation from hell. We changed party sizes multiple times on the day of, showed up at different times, and asked (in advance) for separate checks. The team at Shoe's handled all with a smile and made it easy for us. They served us great food in a wonderful atmosphere with impeccable and friendly service. A+ to you, Shoe's! Hope we come back next year!

When I called to make the reservation, nobody bothered to mention that the refrigerator was broken & there was no beer available. They also stuck my party of 10 people upstairs where there was no air conditioning, again, without apology or acknowledgment that it was going to be hot up there. The poor server did his best to accommodate us, but it seemed he was stretched thin between a station OUTSIDE & then us INSIDE on the SECOND floor. We ordered some apps then left. No manager even bothered to apologize for any of it, even though we expressed our disappointment to the server. Food was decent, however.

This was our second brunch at Shoe’s, and may have been our last. Service was horrible - it took almost an hour to get our food after ordering, and had to basically beg for refills on coffee and water. When the food did come out, it was lukewarm at best. We didn’t want to send it back because who knows how long it would have taken to get new dishes! The waitress we had for most of the meal just seemed bored and uninterested in what she was doing. There was no real “service” - she just reacted to requests. We were also disappointed to see that it was a limited menu for Father’s Day. Nowhere when we made the reservation did it say that the normal full menu would not be offered. While we’d heard nothing but great things from others about Shoe’s, we certainly won’t be rushing back.

I have been to Shoe’s Cup & Cork numerous times so I am sorry about this review. I keep going back because I really enjoy the food and especially the ambiance. Today was the exception as far as the food was concerned.

The waitress informed us that the kitchen was backed up and offered us an oatmeal cookie while we waited. When the food finally arrived my chicken panini seemed thrown together on a plate and the taste was not up to par. I will probably go back, because my past experiences were wonderful, but I know I have a lot of other choices where even though the ambiance is wonderful, I won’t have to wait an unusual amount of time for a mediocre meal.

Mothers day reservation was a nighmare. They called an cancelled because the computer screwed up. After getting the manager on the phone, the helped me out albeit putting and the entire family at a lawn table and rocking lawn chairs with young kids. This made for an interesting meal and was rather stressful. Food was ok, but not if you are on a paleo or keto diet as everything had bread or potatoes involved.

We came for Mother's Day brunch and it started off a little rocky. We had one of the first reservations of the day and they seemed disorganized and unfriendly (different than what I'm accustomed to at this restaurant). Fortunately, our server was very attentive and made-up for the rocky start. Our food was decent but I didn't feel that it was as good as prior meals here. I definitely will come back to Shoe's, but I'm not sure that I'll be back for a special occasion meal.
