I have been meaning to stop here for some time. Today I was excited to see them set up at the Wisner Market. I got the thanksgiving wrap, and it was absolutely delicious. The staff was very friendly as well. I'm looking forward to leftovers! More...
Great fresh food option. The smoothies and salads were a retreat from the fried food vacationland fare. We enjoyed their sandwiches (an Italian sub) and a turkey club? All were fresh and neatly prepared. The service was great. We think the owner was on duty and took great care in the place. Definitely a great stop off the beaten path. More...
Great spot for breakfast (served all day) and lunch. I went with a peanut butter crunch bagel: plain bagel toasted with melted creamy peanut butter, bananas, and granola drizzled with honey. It was unique and delicious. Had it with a vanilla latte... both for under $8.Plenty of seating and free wifi. Street parking with meters. More...
Very hip environmentally conscious cafe with great food! I had the chicken salad pita and it was the best I've ever had. My college aged son had the feta burger. He chose steak for the burger but all burgers on the board have an option of steak, salmon or black bean. He said it was really good. More...
Excellent selection of healthy and fresh salads and sandwiches for a reasonable price!
Mocha smoothie was yummy and the chicken salad pita was very fresh and tasty
Great food, good price. nice atmosphere and staff. Way better than any chain place around.
Normally I love turtle leaf because of the healthy option for fast food but today I was disappointed. I ordered online via DoorDash and while my salad was delicious whoever made my sandwich definitely rushed. I ordered the antipasto sandwich with no olives and was given a salami and cheese sandwich. I will give turtle leaf another chance because the food is always good and I’ve never had an issue before but today was as I said, disappointing. More...
The “Thanksgiving” was delicious
The people are awesome and I've never had a bad meal there.
Tried the build your own bagel and healthy start. Both were delicious and fresh. Add 2 cups of coffee and the total was only about $15!!! This was a very delicious healthy start to our day. What a pleasant surprise for our frequent trips between nyc and buffalo! Definitely a choice to return to. We loved the vibe to dine in. Lunch menu items looked delicious also; I hope we travel through later in the day next time. More...
the best healthy food....smoothies are great I eat here at least 4 times or more a week....it has helped my health tremendously.....they always cater to my needs with their fast delivery ...great people .... More...

Thanks Adam. I always love coming to downtown to enjoy your shop
TL did an excellent job catering my late husband's memorial. Delicious food, great service. Duvid would have been delighted. Keep up the good work.

My husband and I have eaten here many times, including this morning for breakfast. The food is great, staff is friendly, and the coffee is the best we have had anywhere!
I was able to order my lunch on the way via the website, pick it up, and be back to work in minutes. The food is amazing, coffee is proper, and the people are friendly. My new favorite spot in Elmira.
Food and service are always great here and the prices are very reasonable. If you get a chance try it.
Amazing salads at a great price!!
I love this place! My boyfriend and I come here just about every week and always have awesome service and amazing food. Plus the prices are great for what you get. Will definitely keep coming back!
Traveling through from Florida. Yelp was helpful in helping us find this delightful place. My tuna on rye was good. My wife got a Cuban Panini that was so very good. Excellent coffee.
The Apple Pecan salad with grilled chicken is the BEST salad I ever had. If you haven’t eaten at this place you need to run down and get something off the menu. The smoothies are awesome!! Great customer service. More...
This place was cool. We found it randomly on Google and decided to check it out. It's got a little hipster vibe but this place was awesome. I ordered the beef and mushroom panini, and my wife had a strawberry turkey brie panini which we were told was the popular item there. Mine came with a side of chips and salsa, and hers came with carrots and grapes. Both tasted excellent but I think mine was better. Parking is interesting because some of the parking meters on the streets don't work. Overall this was a great place with a great menu. More...
A great "find" in an unexpected place. The food here is consistently excellent. Ideal for a quick bite; enjoy the outdoor seating if you want privacy; it can get quite loud when the place is full. More...
I have gone here a few times on lunch now and the service is always great! This last time I had gotten an iced latte and dropped it as I got into my car! I went back in to get another one and the guy that made it wouldn't let me pay for it again! He didn't have to do that... It wasn't his fault.. but that is how nice they are to their customers! On top of that their food is great! I really love going to turtle leaf! Your guys are great!!! ❤️ More...

I rarely get to Elmira, but when I do Turtle Leaf is my go to place. I love the food! The are so many creative options for sandwiches, and they are always amazing.
Fresh, delicious, healthy faster food option. Always hopping and for good reason. Breakfast and lunch only. Gem of Elmira!
The food is amazing, one of a kind service and the owner, adam, is a gem! The peanut butter protein shake is my go to!! I always reccomend to friends!
WOW ! The food was amazing reminds me of the Palm Beaches
Wonderful food, location and staff!! The prices are fair and I love the atmosphere! Only tiny complaint would be wait time sometimes.
Great food every time I come here and pleasant staff that appear to enjoy their jobs. It’s a great thing to see.
Chicken salad and April special sandwich were both really good. Take out apple pecan and chef salads artfully arranged. I will be back!!
If I could marry their chicken salad I would. SO good.
The food here is excellent. I eat in and do take out often. The owner and his staff give great customer service. They are also very friendly.
One of our favorite places! Love their sandwhiches and smoothies!!!!!
Kelly L. Schwartz
We were in town for one night performing a show so we stopped here the next morning before heading back out of town. It was fantastic! The food was great and the staff was super friendly! Also, there was a nice selection of sugar free syrups for lattes which is a huge win in my book! Thank you!!!! More...
Fantastic food and the best customer service. Everyone appears to enjoy working there and treats the customer like family. Reasonably priced and delicious food with lots of choices on the menu. Highly reccommend!! More...
Hands down one of my favorite locally owned restaurants. Love their salads & panini options for lunch & their chai latte to sip on while I’m getting some work done. Very friendly staff who are always eager to help & a great owner that always takes the time to say hello & thank you for the support. Lucky to have this gem in our down town area! More...
Loveeeee... this place!! Can't complain about anything on the menu at all. Only sad because their yogurt parfaits aren't made with vanilla yogurt anymore!!! ��
Awesome flavors and choices you won’t find anywhere else! Highly recommend this non fast food place in downtown Elmira �
Always my go to place for local breakfast! Great customer service, food, and drinks.
Susan Goodridge Weaver
I recently ordered a couple of roasted veggie panninis, and they were excellent, as the food always is. Excellent service as well. The only down side is that the restaurant closes at 3:00, so it's tough to pick something up for dinner. But definitely worth the trip to downtown Elmira! :) More...
Marianne La Bruyere
Always a great meal. Service is goid and the owner is so nice. I really enjoy going to the Turtle Leaf.
I read previous reviews about the crazy busy lunch hour but decided to stop in when I was nearby. I am so happy I did! While busy, the staff was welcoming, friendly and super efficient. The menu had vegetarian options and I was most intrigued by the Roasted Veggie Panini. It was SO GOOD! The veggies were thick and meaty, marinated just enough. The side of carrots and grapes was awesome, so refreshing to not be offered French fries! I truly wish I lived or works closer, highly highly recommend! More...
First time today! The food and service was great!
Literally has the best food & smoothies! I love going there so much, definitely recommend!
Always always consistently great food and service. Love it. Chicken Salad is the go to on a wrap. Yummmmm.
Great fresh food! I had apple pecan salad, and chicken tortilla soup, homemade! Hubby had specialty turkey sandwich- real turkey, not cold cuts. Pleasant service and atmosphere- must try! More...
Pretty much the nicest staff around. I love that their menu includes vegetarian/vegan options and everything is made fresh. A perfect road trip stop for some fresh breakfast! Vegan chili offered daily - score! More...
What a nice and refreshing place to eat. We missed our exit for the local Cracker Barrel and needed breakfast. Came upon this restaurant by chance. We arrived too late for breakfast. We opted for the It's Greek to Me salad and a Chef Salad. Everything made with fresh vegetables. Who says one cannot eat healthy while traveling. I highly recommend eating here if you ever find yourself in Elmira, NY. More...
Very good food and coffee. Enjoy eatting there when I have extra time at lunch. Great job...
Darlene Fretz Moses
Absolutely LOVE the food and atmosphere. Highly recommend that you give it a try.
Healthiest place to get full in Elmira!
The best food all the time, every time! Gluten free, healthy and fresh. We love Turtle Leaf!!
Great service and food!!!
Love turtle leaf! Fast, healthy, & delicious! Haven't had a smoothie that I didn't like and the chicken salad pita is amazing.
Stopped here on our way from NYC to Toronto, and absolutely loved the vegetarian food and friendly service. We ordered a fresh squeezed OJ, tomato & mushroom flatbread, veggie chili, and a veggie panini. My veggie panini had a rogue piece of meat, which I brought to the staff's attention; they immediately apologized and offered me a complimentary menu item. Mistakes happen everywhere, but this place handled theirs remarkably well. I would come back here again and recommend others do too! More...
Michelle Spencer Reeves
I haven't found anything I didn't like yet! Love the menu items and love that they offer gluten free choices! I brought home a smoothie today for my son and when he was nearing the end, he asked if I could go back and get a refill for him.
Delicious Greek salad! My daughter loved the tuna sandwich and was thrilled they had very good gluten free bread. Good coffee and hot chocolate as well. I like that as side options they offer grapes and carrots or chips and salsa instead of fries. More...
Great Menu! Truly unique and attractive. Wonderful service, a great place to have a meet up or savor extra time with a cup of something memorable.
Keep up the good work
Really great cafe. My favorites are the ham, cheddar, pear panini and the chicken salad pita. Good smoothies too. Maybe slightly pricey for some but definitely worth it which is why I've given 5 stars. Worth the stop for lunch or dinner. More...
Great little place with a very nice menu and reasonable prices. Had a very nice panini and companion had a good salad. Try the Turtle latte, it is very good. Place was clean, wait staff was very attentive. Only drawback is we went at a little after noon on a Thursday and the place was very busy. The locals like the place which is always a good sign. Service was very quick though and I would go back. More...
Everything about this place is great, it's cheerful, has great staff, incredible food. Bright but not too bright, dark but not too dark (i hope that makes sense). It has a great vibe, if you could ever have anything bad to say about this place you went there on a day that nothing was going to cheer you up. The food is tremendous, this place can do no wrong. More...

I love everything about this place! Great healthy food and people �
Judi A Bedzyk
The food is amazing! It's made with fresh ingredients - it's good for you - and ...: it tastes great. The workers are friendly and quick to take care of your needs. Fun and deliciousness �
I love Turtle Leaf for lunch. It is priced decently, service is fast, and it is much healthier than Elmira's other options. Do wish dinner menu was cheaper. 13 dollars for mac and cheese is a tad exorbitant. More...
Turtle leaf cafe is the most healthy friendly delicious company in the usa. The food is just fantastic , the drinks are to dye for, the best place I have ever ate at Truely amazing guys
We loved this place! Stopped here on our way to our hotel in Horseheads. The food was so good and fresh. I loved the menu choices and the service was excellent!
I've always enjoyed the fresh, healthy selections I can get at Turtle Leaf and strongly recommend everyone make a special trip there for lunch if you haven't been yet. I love that they have a kids menu too...there is something for even the pickiest kids. We are lucky to have them in Elmira. More...
We really enjoyed our meals (family of four and I have pretty severe soy and gluten allergies) at the Cafe. We found everyone to be helpful and the restaurant to have many choices for us. Highly recommend, especially if you want healthy whole foods. They even had gluten free bread!!! More...
Found this place using yelp and it did not disappoint! Shared the strawberry turkey brie panini and the fruity greens salad. Coffee and Lemonade were delicious. More...
Very good quality , nice people and interesting combinations. Just slightly high in price for what you get
I bring my children--ages 1 and 3--almost every week, and always invite friends or family to come along. I've loved everything I've eaten there, and my kids will house a raspberry-spinach smoothie in a sitting. I think it's so great that there is a place to eat that serves healthy food. Service is great. I will say that I almost never bring cash and you pay up front before you get your order, so tips are awkward. Can you just charge an extra $20 to my card next time I order to make up for my poor tipping these last few visits? Serious question! More...
I had a black bean feta chedda burger. It was unbelievably good! I'm not a vegetarian but heard someone raving about it and it did not disappoint. The breakfast has great options. I really enjoy the salads as well. More...
Fantastically creative and healthy menu. The burger (salmon, beef and black bean) were headliners, but the paninis and other items looked great too. Wished I had room for the smoothies. Really good value too! More...
Friendly staff, clean facility, delicious food! Really nice to have good, clean food in Elmira for very reasonable prices. Service was fast and it was an enjoyable time. More...
What a find! Thank you Yelp! Stopped for breakfast while driving thru the area and so glad we did. The most delicious food and the nicest people. Awesome bottomless coffee, too. Will make this a stop whenever we can. Just 2 minutes off highway. More...
I love their sandwiches, no matter which bread. The soups are definitely home made without too much salt and just the right broth. (Not too thick and not too thin. I don't like a very thick pasty tasting broth, even when eating a cream based soup.) This cafe is one of my favorite places for lunch. More...
Cannot say enough about how GREAT this place is! We live in NJ and only have the opportunity to stop here when visiting my daughter at nearby Elmira College. Love the healthy options! Food and service have always been excellent. Wish we had one near home! More...
I love the food. The employees are so friendly and welcoming. Even during the crazy lunch hour (call ahead and order lunch during the week) everyone greets you with a smile. The chicken salad, healthy start and chocolate peanut butter smoothies are my favorite. I'm so glad they moved to downtown!! More...
I LOVE THE PIZZA STEAK BURGER WITH BABY CARROTS&GRAPES WITH DIP WITH MY DIET PEPSI SODA THAT I HAD FOR MY LUNCH TUESDAY AFTERNOON APRIL 12,2016 OF THIS WEEK ☺☺☺☺☺☺
One of my absolute favorite stops for lunch. Took my boyfriend here for the first time for lunch on the weekend and he loved it too! I love that all of the food is fresh and that there are so many healthy options to choose from. Adam and his team do an amazing job. The Mediterranean Flat bread is my absolute favorite and I got the blueberry-mango-apple juice smoothie and I know I'll be getting it again! More...
The vegan chili is everything today!! (Because it's April and snowing, but it's amazing all other days of the year too!) This is why I love you Turtle Leaf- healthy and affordable options in a town overrun with pizza and subs. You're what was missing from Elmira and I hope you stay forever! Keep up the great work! More...
This is a great place good food and the owner of genuinely cares about downtown Elmira!
The only bad thing I can say is that I'm mad I found this place the day I'm leaving town! The food was superb! The omelette was great and the pineapple, mango, spinach smoothie was on point! It is a very warm and welcoming place. If I'm ever back in town I will definitely stop here again. More...
India Samara Payne
Great place for gluten free, vegan and healthy salads.
Michael P Woodard
Love supporting local being a small business owner in this area can be tuff but with great customer service and awesome food we can all make it Adam it was a pleasure finally eating here the food was awesome as well as the service thanks again and keep doing what your doing bud :)
So Kyle brought us to this very quaint town and we discovered this wonderful little café. The selection was incredible and my salmon pesto burger was amazing. Kyles hearty artie sandwich was a nice sized portion also. This café could go toe to toe with any in NYC! More...
Kyle W. Knapp
Always timely. Always tasty. Always on point with their service. Been here numerous times and everytime they live up to what everyone says about them. My family loves it here!
This place is amazing. U love the food the scenery and the way your treated. Hands down best healthy place to eat around!!!!
I ate here for 4 days in a row while I was in town!! Awesome service and amazing food/smoothies (vegetarian friendly!) highly recommended!
All I have to say is I have eaten here for 4 days straight and there is not a bad thing on the menu
It's been awhile since I've visited, but it's always been exceptional. What makes it extra special is that it delivers a unique and delicious eating experience that is not common in the Elmira area. This is the type of business that Elmira desperately needs, and I hope their success continues. More...
This is a great local restaurant. The workers are so nice and helpful. They always have a smile on there face. The food is fresh and delicious.
The food here is always excellent and the service is too. Friendly people, smiling faces, great food and many healthy options that taste stellar. What more could you ask for?
While traveling for work, I needed a quick and healthy lunch. I placed an order over the phone, but they forgot to prepare it. I had to wait about 7 minutes as they prepared my food. No one is perfect, so I won't hold that against them. The food was delicious and fresh. I had a veggie wrap and a strawberry almond salad. Both items were very good. Their menu was full of great options and it was hard for me to pick one, which is why I got two :). If I work in this area again, I'll be sure to come back. Added bonus: If you check in, you get 15% off your bill...Score! More...
Katie Mae Trombley
A wonderful cafe with a great menu. Friendly staff as well :) definitely a must try and a place to frequent
I love the food and atmosphere! Amazing choices and friendly staff! It is am awesome place to grab a bite!
Its a charming little cafe in the quaint town of Elmira and you can find quite a few unique edible choices ranging from delicious sandwiches to exotic smoothies. The atmosphere is comfortable and the people are nice it is a positive place to hangout too, which is always encouraging to find. I appreciate that Turtle Leaf has stressed the importance of using wholesome ingredients. IF i had to compare I'd have to say it is similar to Panera Bread, but not a chain and that makes a world of difference. My only hope is that they expand and grow, because more on the menu is just fine! :) More...
Absolutely love this place! The banana foster iced coffee is exceptional and I'm not typically a fan of iced coffee. Every time I go I order something different and I have yet to be let down! Every time I want to eat lunch out this is the first place to cross my mind! Definitely a hidden gem in Elmira! More...
Salmon burger with pestocado topping was delicious!!! It was my first time at Turtle Leaf Cafe and I will be returning! I'm excited to try all the delicious sounding menu items. I'll be back : )
Local, Great Food, Great Staff, Healthy Options, and committed to Elmira...Turtle Leaf Café is a win on every level! I'm so grateful they are in my city!
I finally got around to checking out this place which I have heard alot about. It isnt easy because unlike most cafe's they dont open until 10 am. The placeI love the cafe & coffee shop vibe they had a a few comfy chairs & couches ( in fact a girl was sleeping in one!) by a nice fire place. It had plenty of table space with a cool bar even. It was very clean and set up wellThe foodI went here with my wife we ordered the Strawberry Turkey Brie and Ham, cheddar, pear panin's on the advice of the lady at the counter and wow were they good. Everything tasted so fresh you can tell they use quality stuff in the things in their menu. They both came with fresh grapes and carrots which was great healthy option. I was so sad I had just come from Heavenly cup so I was too full to try some of the amazing coffee options they had but I will be back! I normally go to Panera Bread when I'm up by the mall I'm so excited I now have a better option. If you like Panera you will love this place I can't wait to try their coffee and baked goods both looked really good!The staffThey were great the girl was very friendly and offered great advice when ordering. Another guy came up after we got our food and made sure everything was good. The staff gets an A+!!! Read less More...
Awesome food and service! Highly recommend this restaurant!
Heather Hearts Sunnyside Q.
Nice little place off the highway. Decent coffee, tasty omelette, decadent Belgian waffle with whipped cream and strawberries. Service is a little slow, but the servers are very pleasant! More...
Was driving through the area and wanted something local and decided to try this place, glad we did! Really easy on and off the highway, the menu has a lot of interesting and different sandwiches, paninis and salads. The food is excellent, made to order and fresh.Our wait was not very long but I can see during a rush it may take some time to get your food. More...
Love love love this place...though..a little pricey. The food has been delicious so far everything I have been there. Not the friendless staff though. They need some lesson on how to work with the public..smile and be friendly. Other than that ..great food and smoothies. More...
A wonderful, locally owned restaurant. It's casual with a varied menu - funky salads, sandwiches, wraps, milkshakes (you can have protein powder added like I did), and smoothies. They have breakfast, and also a kids' menu. One of my favorites is their version of a grilled cheese - done on ciabatta bread in a panini press - and you can either have chips & salsa, or (my fave) red grapes and these mini carrots with a delectable dip!! I've also tried one of their green smoothies - spinach, pineapple, mango & other fruit - so yummy and refreshing!!! And a s'mores milkshake! Yum! The owner is a great supporter of the arts and local business - an admirable duo to add to amazing meals! Make sure you visit the Turtle Leaf Cafe - it is well worth it!! More...
I love Turtle Leaf. They make such amazing, healthy, fresh sandwiches. They also make other things, including smoothies, coffee, and other common cafe items, all of which are fantastic. Great place to go.
Amy Hetrick McCarn
Great choices! Today we went for breakfast. Coffee was great. The waffles are awesome and as my daughter would say "as big as my head". Kid tested, kid approved!! Looking forward to returning for lunch soon. More...
This place is killin it! I'm currently on tour with Beauty and The Beast and the company and I are extremely thankful for the fresh, exciting, delicious menu. Personally, it's one of my favorite menus I've seen yet across the country. I've tried a few different things and loved each one and I look forward to trying something new tomorrow. Friendly staff, speedy service, come one come all. More...
Best chicken salad I have ever had! And the staff is so kind and courteous! Turtle Leaf will be one of my regular places to eat lunch!
A great place with awesome food. Impressed with all my orders...I highly recommend this café.
Absolutly love the food here! Highly recommend.
Fresh and tasty food, comfortable, artsy vibe - fabulous addition to downtown Elmira!!!
The food and drinks are a-typical and always fresh and delicious. Besides, my son works there.
I have celiacs and been diagnosed for almost 5 years and it's so hard to find good GF take out that's healthy. Especially bread! And I just got sum sandwiches from there and hands down amazing. If u have to or jus want to eat gluten free and are looking for a nice sandwich or wrap Def suggest them. And great customer service and good vibes. More...
Ordered from there twice this week and each time my order had been absolutely delicious. I can see this place being my new usual place to order my lunches from. The staff are also very kind.
Love the food here and now I love how close they are to me, gluten free bread is amazing and chili is delicious healthy and tasty food!
I had a Spinach Tomato flatbread. Yummy! It had all of my favorite things & I will definitely be getting it again. Also got a chocolate/pb smoothie. Let's just say, I drank the whole thing before I even got my food! I'll need a bigger one next time. More...
Absolutely no complaints about the service at this place! The food was served "hot of the press" and they had a wide variety of sandwiches, paninis, smoothies, and baked items! I loved how everything had a health conscious vibe and gluten free options! I'm on a strict gluten and dairy free diet, so I was thrilled that I could actually find something! It's such a nice and quiet spot, perfect for studying and working outside of the office! More...
Phyllis KuanYin Chi
Awesome healthy and delicious food, they host awesome quality musicians, AND they serve awesome Gimme Coffee! What more could you ask for Better place to stop after you shop near the mall!
Great place to eat! The staff are amazing! I highly recommend stopping by.
Hope Thomas Fenton
Such a great alternative to the places by the mall. I can see going back there very soon. My sandwich was so complex and soooo good!

Tammy Barnes Eggers
A great place too eat and wonderful employees
