Salads – Soups – Sandwiches – Smoothies

About Us

Green Leaf Café was started in 2012 by Alicia Deal and Molly Olson. Their partnership with the Buehler YMCA has created a convenient option for grab-and-go entrees and snacks. Green Leaf’s focus on fresh ingredients offers YMCA members, local residents and businesses great tasting sandwiches, soups, salads and smoothies. Attention to details like premium salad dressings, seasonal menu items and from scratch baked goods set Green Leaf Café apart. Gluten free menu items are available.


Located in the lobby of the Buehler YMCA, Green Leaf Café has plenty of seating. It’s a great location for meeting and gathering, or for taking items to go. Call ahead and food can be ready and waiting for pick up. Catering is also available for meetings, birthday parties or private events.

You don’t have to be a member of the Y to visit Green Leaf Café.
