Was expecting more from our experience as I had heard great things. This place was just ok...nothing special which was what I was looking for a birthday lunch. Service was ok, food was nothing special and had been told that they would provide a complimentary dessert for the birthday girl. Upon asking they said sure...brought the wrong dessert and then charged for it....not the experience I was looking for Especially celebrating a birthday. Will probably will not be back. Thanks

Very relaxing, safe, efficient atmosphere with a splendid menu which covered brunch specialties and lunch, special brunch drinks, etc. The service was perfect with cheerful staff who were ready to provide whatever we needed. I'll go back again and again.

what started off as a great experience turned sour when my husbands hot chocolate had an eyelash in it followed by my potatoes w a piece of hair in it. The SAD thing is the flavor of my food was great!
Being in the restaurant industry myself I understand things happen - however, when brought to their attention the condescending attitude of the manager was rather off putting. The managers comment about the eyelash was "oh that's a new one"
No no it's not. I could have accepted 1 issue w bodily hair but not 2! As cute as this place is - when visiting from DC I will not be back....... I can not give this review any less then 2 stars because the food was actually good. Just the hair and the response of the manager is what gave this a 2 star.

Thank you for the detailed feedback and I appreciate that you mention some positive aspects of your experience. I am truly embarrassed that there was an eyelash in the drink- I have never heard of that before either and I am so sorry that happened to you and your husband. I am also sorry that you were not spoken to by our manager in a way that made you feel respected. The issues you raised have been addressed with the staff, both management and kitchen. Sincerely, Lara

Secret garden in the back is adorable ambiance and setting, especially in Covid times - came for a late brunch with reservation, our server was not super attentive, though I saw
a lot of others doing double duty with large groups, and we didn't receive a few things we asked for or even offered a refill on our drinks.

Our table was accidentally given away so we had to wait maybe ten minutes before being seated but we received an apology. Our server was on top on things and our food was delicious. We’ve gone many times and will continue! I love the variety of eggs Benedict that they offer on their weekend brunch menu!

We happen to be in Leesburg for the morning on business and decided to stop for breakfast. What an adorable place! The coffee was excellent I got Biscuit Benedict 😍 so delicious and he got smoked salmon plate with two poached eggs. We loved it, our server was great and intuitive to what we needed and made thoughtful suggestions we may not have thought of. Will definitely go back again!

Love that you can reserve outside seating (thanks to Covid) and it was dog-friendly. Service was very slow but our server was excellent. We were a party of 6 for brunch and agreed that our appetizers were better than our entrees. Basil curry fries were our favorite, along with the hot chocolate flights and mimosa flights (sooo many flavor options). Great find!

I had the biscuit Benedict and it was fantastic. Our server was attentive and pleasant. Met a friend who I hadn’t seen in a very long time and we talked for quite a while. We never felt like we were being rushed out. The secret garden was such a fun and beautiful atmosphere. I highly recommend this place.

The outside seating is very nice and we sat at a rear high table. The food was good and the atmosphere was relaxing. I wish there had been a closer heating unit near our table, that will be more important as winter gets here.

My only concern was that when people walked by our table or we needed to get to or leave our table, the room to walk was very, very small. I had to actually brush up against the table I was passing and everyone passing me had to brush my table. I didn't think that was very social-distancing friendly. Not sure how Shoes can fix this unless they remove the bocci court (not sure how much that is used as there were tables inside that as well).

The restaurant itself is super cute. Very cozy and inviting. However, the food was a little bit underwhelming and the service really slow. I'd be happy to try it again, if I were in town to to try something else on the menu, as they do have a couple veggie/vegan options, but the "tapenade" and veggie hoagie were nothing to write home about. They were also full of onions, even though I asked for them to be taken out.
Overall cute for a light lunch or a quiet brunch with a nice atmosphere, but nothing ground breaking.

Service was OK although when they were unable to seat us outdoors, we were told there was only three tables inside the room we were to be seated in upstairs, which seemed fine for social distancing, until we say one was table for EIGHT people in a small room. We did not like that having that many people without masks on so close, and that made me put my mask on between bites. The server understandably became preoccupied with tending to that table and their numerous drink requests, and we were kind of hit on her way out of the room. Our muffins that we ordered as an appetizer came out after our food, so we didn’t really enjoy them, even though they were delicious. The waitress brought me a mimosa instead of the cranberry drink I ordered, but she corrected it pretty quickly. Other than that everything was fine but we probably won’t go back. We’ll look for another place a little more attentive.

We discovered Shoe's a few weeks ago, and have made it our date night go-to. We feel completely safe in their outdoor space (the tables are all far from each other), the ambiance is lovely and romantic, the food is excellent, and the service is outstanding and everyone wears masks.
