Early Saturday (4th July) came for breakfast. Avocado toast, fruit and walnut toast and bloody Mary's were amazing. Really European vibe. Excellent service.

Nice place. But too noisy, with friendly service (although a little slow). Had one of the best oysters of my life. They do not welcome vegetarians, once there is only one main dish (pasta, of course) and some salads. The tables are excessively close to others. Only one (and filthy) toilet is another bad point.

I have been to this restaurant a few times, and my experience is always the same. Great food, including one of the best burgers I've ever had and awesome breakfasts. A bit pricey but it is Williamsburg. In peak times, enjoy the experience of standing around on the street corner waiting for a table surrounded by hipsters and their dogs.... More

I love eating here for breakfast, lunch and dinner! I always take my friends when they are visiting and suggest it as a place to go when people ask 'where's good to eat around here?" Not only is the food delicious, but the staff is always super nice and bartenders make some amazing cocktails!

Our server was incredible and friendly! My Moroccan scramble was good. It was an unusual combo of sausage, chickpeas and avocado. A little too crowded and buzzing for me.

Five Leaves was at the top of the list of restaurants our hotel (the fabulous Henry Norman) recommended. We followed their suggestion and were not disappointed in the least. Over the course of a week, we actually ate here 3 times. We couldn't get enough. We went twice for breakfast - on our first trip, we had the BRÛLÉED GRAPEFRUIT,... More

My wife and I (60-ish) were staying locally, and the hotel recommended Five Leaves as the "best" place to eat in the neighborhood. We had walked by it earlier and noticed it was crowded, but decided to go back. It is a small triangular-shaped building on a corner with excellent sidewalk tables. Inside the seating was more cramped and our... More

Myself and my girlfriend had heard rave reviews of this place, and we were delighted to find them accurate! Despite stories of long waits just to get a table, we were seated for brunch immediately by our attentive server. Unable to choose between the excellent options, we shared three dishes; the fresh fruit and granola bowl, the avocado sourdough toast,... More

This place was just the type of restaurant I was looking for. Casual, yet really well executed food. Went here for dinner around 7pm on a Monday night. We were able to get a table right away. I had a black kale salad, and a side of celery root mash. My friends make fun of me for getting excited over... More

Loved this cool cafe in Williamsburg! After a whole day of exploring the area we enjoyed an amazing Grapefruit Margarita in the sun. We're coming back. For sure!
