Great food in hip williamsburg atmosphere. Had the pancakes and the granola which were both really good. Would come back for sure.

I live in Massachusetts and visit my brother who lives in Greenpoint regularly. When I'm in Brooklyn, my girlfriend and I will never skip Five Leaves. My brother introduced us to Five Leaves several years ago and it's my favorite place when we're here. I strongly recommend Five Leaves, you won't be disappointed.

This is a pretty small restaurant, but we got a table for 2 easily. The coffee is pretty strong, but it was great with the ricotta pancakes! I really enjoyed the pancakes with the fresh fruit. It was yummy. My hubby got the big brekkie. He enjoyed it too. The food is different than a traditional breakfast place. Portions were... More

My cousin took my sister and I for brunch during our visit to NYC. The wait was about an hour on a Saturday morning but it was worth it. The ricotta pancakes and the Moroccan scramble looked to be the favorites so I got the scramble. It was light, flavorful, and delicious. The avocado and chick peas were a delicious... More

Ordering at Five Leaves is difficult, the menu reads so damn well and there’s a truckload of food envy going on as you see diners devouring sky high pancake stacks with fresh berries crowning the top. I ordered the crunchy sweet corn fritters with a tomato vinaigrette, rocket, fromage blanc and poached eggs, super tasty. Or build your breaky and... More

We got a super lunch here. We had our infant with us and got the stroller inside. When there was a table available outside they moved us out in the sun as we had asked for. Nice! We got 2 kind of salats - especially the Vietnamese one was superb! Great taste and excellent quality. I got a nice beer... More

How could you possibly decide what to order! I wanted to try everything at this quirky little restaurant that is probably only known by locals. Luckily, we were with a local transplant to Brooklyn via New Zealand. It was really tough but I settle for the Moroccan scramble. So flavourful, spicy and rich with the avocado and chick peas.
