Fantastic Breakfast! The term "Fluffy" doesn't do justice to the pancakes and the sausage gravy might be in my top 10 ever! (And I'm a sausage gravy snob!) If you are looking for a great LOCAL breakfast when passing through look no further!

We had breakfast one morning at Lea's. Since I am big breakfast eater, I had high expectations because of its popularity. The food was ok but not my style for breakfast. The toast was the thick Texas toast and the bacon was not cooked that well. The waitress was friendly and the price was very competitively which probably makes the... More

I've eaten at Lea's for both breakfast and lunch. We had prompt service in a friendly atmosphere, with a menu that featured local dishes well prepared.

The food was good, they were busy so slow service but the kicker was my breakfast order. I asked for an "order of pancakes and a side order of bacon". I got ONE pancake and two slices of bacon. Obviously, they have some difficulty with the concept of "plural" there. I have never seen any cafe that considered an order... More

We always enjoy getting breakfast here, I get the half breakfast, husband gets a plate as filled with bacon, eggs and biscuits as he possibly can. I love to get hot tea there, comes in a cup the size of a kiddy pool (by which I mean ludicrously huge). The service is always efficient and cordial, booths are nice, we... More

We arrived at exactly 7:00 am on a Thursday while traveling through the area. Upon entering there was already 7 tables filled and we became the 8th. It took around 10 minutes for us to be greeted because there was only ONE server for the entire restaurant. The lady and I split the biscuit and gravy with bacon plate was... More

This is not a fancy restaurant ... but the food and service is very good! I had never had Southern Biscuits with Sausage Gravy. I ordered the "Stuffed Biscuit", it was excellent! My favorite pie is Lemon Maringue and they have a very good one. Service was very good! I will be back!

This restaurant is a must go to when in Monroe. It's more like a little hole in the that we almost passed up. I'm glad we didn't. We were able to order breakfast during lunchtime. We got to taste the best. I had French toast which was made perfectly and a cup of gumbo. My husbandvhadvthevsmothered biscuit and finished with... More

Known far and wide for its pies and ham sandwiches, Lea's has a quite varied menu. One day my wife and I dropped by for lunch, met four people we knew and had an old-fashioned good time. I ordered a chicken-spaghetti casserole-type dish with corn salad and fried okra. My wife had a roast beef po-boy and hashbrowns. We could... More
