My friends and I were trying to get a quick breakfast before gol.f we tried to get in the north end café next-door but it was closed so we went to twig and leave instead. Horribly long wait even though no one was in there, 2 out of three of our meals were incorrect and wait staff walked around talking... More

We have lived in Louisville for several years and had yet to visit Twig & Leaf. We have frequented other nearby establishments but finally checked off this one from our list. As stated, it was a Saturday and we figured we might have a wait for seating but found that there was a table (and several counter seats) available even... More

It was small and very bare. Minimal is almost an understatement. However the service was amazing! The staff was so attentive that we never had to wait, but that also may have been because they weren't very busy. The only thing I think I would have liked to see there besides a little more decoration and maybe some cleaned up... More

We visited on New Year's Day for breakfast. It was not crowded at all. The staff was attentive and eager to serve despite being tired from staying open late the night before. It was good to see that they have repainted inside and out recently and they took down the blinds which made it so hard to see if they... More

This is the kind of place you should be able to get a great breakfast. Mine wasn't. I ordered a ham and cheese omelet. I think that is simple. The first time they brought it, it had only ham, and very little of it. They took it back and said they'd take care of it. They brought me the same... More

It is a historical establishment, but the owner is apparently looking for a buyer, and the diner was stripped of all decoration and personality. It was empty except for a waitress and a cook when we were there, and it smelled strongly of cleaning solution (not necessarily a bad thing...) before our meals were prepared. My companion ordered pancakes, bacon,... More

Nice diner food. The atmosphere is a bit rustic and the chef can be cranky. Overlook those things because it adds character. The food is good and very economical.

Well it is a throwback diner that looks like it has not changed in 50 years with a crew of characters from the cooks to the waitress that could easily have been on the seinfeld show. Nothing bad about them they were just all a little quirky which kind of added to the atmosphere. Had breakfast of eggs and sausage... More

I am utterly appalled by the ownership of this restaurant. I was just driving by, and there was an elderly woman who was the victim of a hit-and-run and stranded in her car right outside the twig and leaf. I called the restaurant to see if by any chance someone could go out and just help her get out of... More

Stopped at this inviting diner while visiting recently. It is an architectural gem and I could not resist. The exterior and interior are in surprisingly good condition for its age. Sadly, it seems as though there is no creativity left for the owners to inject life into this place. Basic greasy food served by an odd cast of characters. With... More
