The Secret Garden area was perfect! The service was prompt and courteous. The ambiance was comfy, not too loud with a soft breeze present. We love Shoes and will continue to visit as much as we can. If you ever put pancakes or waffles on the menu, I’ll love you forever.

Food and service were both great. We went for Saturday brunch and although it was busy, our food came out very quickly. They have a children’s menu and were accommodating of our toddler.

Shoe's has become so popular in the last few years that you really have to have a reservation if you would like to go during anything approximating peak hours. Happily, unlike a few other places, they do take reservations (thank you Shoe's!) so this part more advice than review. The food is yummy, the service is good, and I particularly love sitting out back by the bocce court on a nice day. My only hesitation is that the food is pretty pricey, so please realize you are paying for the upscale location, ambiance, and fresh food - not typical coffee shop prices.

Our Virginia wine club was out for a daily trip of food & wine in Northern VA. Got a tip from a fellow Sommelier to try this restaurant in Leesburg. The location in the downtown area is nice, but parking was an issue with the flower and garden festival going on that weekend. The decor of the restaurant is periodic of early Twenty century two story home. The service was very good, friendly and helpful. The food was excellent, especially the fresh muffins for brunch. Definitely a good starting point for breakfast/food before a full day of wine tasting at the local wineries.

This was an Easter brunch for two. The food was excellent verging on amazing and we had a great waitress. I'd asked in my reservation for an upstairs table but we were seated on the main level instead. I'd really recommend the bell above the door get a damper or simply leave the door open during busy times. The constant ding ding ding was very annoying, but overall we enjoyed ourselves and had a great day. The lemon-aid flight was excellent!

Upstairs is the coziest place I know of anywhere to eat, in a unique, elegant, but still casual setting. The service has been great both times I've been there.

Food was great and we had a wonderful wine flight with our brunch. The only negative (and why I did 4 not 5 stars) was that we had the most annoyingly wobbly table!

This was our first time at Shoe's. The intricate details of the historic building the restaurant is housed in have been well preserved. The upstairs room where we were seated had gorgeous woodwork, and the featured decor included antique cameras, radios, TV's, gramophones, and telephones - very fun! Brunch was quite good, we split the basil/curry fries and I had the sausage gravy biscuit. The gravy was the perfect consistency and delicious. Service was on the slow side but the staff was very friendly. Look forward to returning and trying additional menu items!

It was just okay. The secret garden is just a tent with lights. The service was intermittent. The cheese platter was elementary.

I had the unexpected pleasure of being shown to a private dining room for Brunch. The character of the establishment was charming and a step back in time. I'm glad I finally found a place that makes scrambled eggs better than I do at home. The menu was great and the service extraordinary! Our server took the time to show us the antiques and unique items that bring a "speak-easy" to life in today's world.

We'll be visiting this fine establishment again in the very near future. Thank you for making a trip to Leesburg so memorable!

We had a large group upstairs on Sunday Feb 24th and the staff was wonderful to the point they went the extra mile to go and get more Mom's Apple Pie from down the street as they ran out. This is top notch customer service at its best and Mom's Apple pie was awesome too.

Made a reservation for 1:00 hoping to have the upstairs dining room since downstairs is a coffee shop and they said they couldn’t seat us because they were having a private party at 2:00 unless we could get out fast.

Really cool and cozy spot. Love how local it feels. Service was great, food was okay. Would more likely stop in for a coffee and muffin rather than sit down breakfast. Of what we ordered, the bisbuut and gravy was great, fries > the potatoes

The "Poker Room" (the small, upstairs dining room) has great decor and background music to match the early 20th century theme. Tables are a bit cramped together and when the room is full the noise level gets to be a little too much. If you're ok trading some peace for some delightful atmosphere, it is not a bad place to enjoy some delicious food on a special occasion. Everything from the appetizer to the entrees to the dessert all tasted wonderful. Wife and I left our date night dinner here feeling very satisfied.

The staff here was very friendly. We were seated upstairs but the temperature was quite warm so she attempted to move us downstairs. When she couldn't do that she opened a window for us to cool the room down. The ambiance here is really cool. It's an old shoe shop from the 30s and a lit if the old shop is still visible. The food came out fast and was cooked perfectly.
