LEAF

Remember a couple of days ago, when we said we were "flexa-tarians"? TL:DR? Well in quick summary, we are Flexible Eating Vegetarians. What that practically means is that we don't cook meat at home, but that doesn't mean we will always eat animal product when we do go out. Justin and I are huge foodies, so saying "no" to food is not really an option for us.

Keeping that in mind, it just so happens that some of our favorite local places are strictly vegan/vegetarian...no, not just "friendly", but straight up vegan/vegetarian. With more and more of our friends choosing that lifestyle for health, fitness, personal reasons, etc, we've been asked where are the best places to go. We tend to be the people you come to when you need suggestions for date night, coffee, and general eats (so if you're ever in a slump, don't be too shy to DM us on Instagram//Facebook or send us a message). 

Now we like to #EATLIKEALOCAL, so after walking past Leaf on multiple morning walks through town, we took advantage of last Friday's DROP DEAD GORGEOUS BEYOND PERFECT THANK YOU BABY JESUS weather and treated ourselves to an afternoon walk and yummy food. Super casual sit down dining (that does offer pick up service if you want to order for work week lunch) is a nice change of pace from other quick-bite type places. It made it feel a little bit more of a casual date than just hanging out on a Friday night. Also there aren't many sit down vegan restaurants this side of the Delaware within a 30 minute drive...soooo it's already winning points in our book. The menu is straight and to the point, a decent juice/smoothie offering with buch on tap, starters, salads, mains, desserts, and a rotating ice cream special. And yes, it's all VEGAN.

Oh! And it's owned by three sisters! So YAY for #girlpower and DOUBLE YAY for women in business!
