I am so happy New Leaf is in Pleasanton. Although I had wished for a Whole Foods Market, I found that I enjoy shopping at New Leaf even more! Their meat counter (grass fed beef) is amazing and they even have a wonderful bakery that offers delicious and unique indiviual sized deserts. Where else can you find NON-GMO corn chips? The most important thing though is the "small town" feeling this store offers. They support our local community even by having a local professional knife sharpener (he sharpened my Wusthof knives and fixed the tip of one of them) at their store on Monday afternoon. Here's to hoping this new merger continues to support our local community!

I like the store a lot; it's beautiful inside and the employees are nice. The grass fed beef is really good, but the fish doesn't turn over quickly enough. I had that fishy smell in my house for two days after cooking a meal so I have returned to Gene's Fine Foods for my seafood purchases. And this isn't the first time this has happened so I hope to see some improvement in this area of the store.

I really like that New Leaf has opened in Pleasanton. I now have to put up with fewer loons (left wing, organic, enviro, etc.) when shopping at Raley's and Safeway. Also, cut down on the congestion at Trader Joe's.

I like New Leaf too, and I enjoy their lunch specials, but I don't understand why someone would want "ON-GMO corn chips".
