Funky dive coffee shop. Coffee and Food ok. My Italian Corned Beef had meat resembling bologna, but it was only $9.50 with a nice salad. The sandwich was lovely, tasty, and generous.

It is great that Leela is open 24 hours. The food is not the greatest quality, but satisfies the drunk munchies. Beverages are good (coffee, hot chocolate). It's nice to have the chess table and sofas and such to hang out in different places with a group of friends.

I normally drink Titos and tonic. This place wanted to charge 8.00 for a short glass! Nah I'm good...

I got into town around 1230am and needed to eat. This was the only place near my hotel that was open and it was ok. They have a full bar (last call was at 145pm SHARP) and the chili cheese friend are decent.

Got in town late night, hotel forgot my preordered food so this place was a lifesaver. At that hour the place and clientele is a bit suspect (and so was the food) though I can't downgrade a place that saved me from starvation. May be more European during the day: after midnight it's pretty American and a bit rough-and-tumble.

DOWNTOWN is best in the day, however, this down to Earth spot with variety of food, good portions, and laid back lounging. For you hipsters, artists, and stragglers of the world.

Leela's was a bit of a surprise. We checked in late to our hotel and the on-site restaurant had stopped serving food. Leela's has a colorful clientele with never a dull moment! Order food up at the bar (pick up a menu at the counter inside the front door). The sandwiches and fries are awesome with large portions. They have... More
