Enjoyable brunch spot

Great brunch spot near the park in Williamsburg. The grapefruit brule is incredible. Strong egg dishes too. Fun, casual vibe.

Traveled to NY for a long week, and found that Five Leaves had the best ricotta pancakes. And yes they were to die for! It' a very small place and we had a large group so we had to wait. Not an issue. But after sitting down we had to wait 15 minutes before some came to take our drink... More

My friend who lives in the neighborhood brought me here and once you go, you'll see why. The restaurant buzzes all night, plan on waiting on the side walk for 30 minutes or more, but it's worth the wait. The staff are really friendly and relaxed despite how busy the place is which was nice because you don't feel rushed... More

This restaurant was buzzing with people when we arrived which is a good sign. We had to wait about 30mins before we could get seated but it was well worth the wait. The waitresses were very friendly and accommodating. They kept their composure under such pressure from how busy the place was which was nice because you didn't feel rushed... More

Breakfast was very good and the servings were very generous. Despite a busy morning crowd, our party of 6 was seated promptly and service was efficient and attentive. I noticed several families and know this is a regular neighborhood restaurant. So, the unexpected kindness of our server as she realized we were meeting in-laws for the first time prior to... More

Me and my fiancé always go to Five Leaves when we want to celebrate something or start the day ( or week) off right! It's always my favorite spot to send out of Towners for amazing food in Greenpoint/ Williamsburg area. We always get there early around9:30AM and it makes a big difference. The staff is fresh and friendly, and... More

Nice location, dirty place, average food, moody waitresses. Do not visit this place if you have kids with you. Also avoid it if you consider that waiting for forty minutes should not be part of a plan.

Fantastic coffee come rain or shine. My wife used to work around the corner and during the winter months it was the first stop in the morning and in the summer it's was the Ice latte that would draw us back at lunch. The food too is fantastic and we used to love watching the world go by whilst eating... More

We had originally planned to have dinner at a polish place, up the street, but discovered they were closed. We found Five Leaves via Trip Advisor and decided to check it out. This is a quaint little romantic place, that shakes their cocktails an appropriate amount of time. We sampled a few cocktails including the Pirate Booty and the Grapefruit... More

Seem to be a big hit with locals as it can be difficult to get a table for dinner. If you manage to sit outside when weather allows it is absolutely lovely. Service wasn't quick but staff are very nice and attentive. Now let's get to the important stuff. The food was fantastic!! Continental european food with a pan-american interpretation... More
