When you think in one of those.places you love.. you totally add Five Leaves for your "love it" places. Great food. Cool area. Friendly enviroment. We arrived around 11am for brunching with friend. We had a burger, some variety eggs and awesome ricotta pancakes!! ;) Coffee is ok. Tea is good. Beer good too. But food is the main star.... More

The epitome of cool. The food was thoughtful and delicious. The place has a sexy vibe and is perfect for a date night. Would impress a 1st date as well as your wifey of 10 years, like me.

Came over from Manhattan today, specifically to go eat here. Was created by someone who said a host would be over to seat us. Eventually she came over and said we could sit anywhere. Sat down and she came over and said that we needed to move to a table for two - why say we can sit anywhere?? Food... More

My husband and i vote our breakfast at Five Leaves the best breakfast of the 3-week holiday in the US. Simple but one cannot miss the attrntion to detail and the bits and pieces. The service was as efficient as it can be. Hats off!

This is a funky place with exceptional food. Try to sit outside with good weather and take in the neighbourhood. Our server was very friendly and informative. He recommended an outstanding vintage clothing store around the corner called Beacon's Closet.

During our trip we were staying close to Five Leaves and a friend suggested we should go. From the outside we weren't thrill it seemed like a regular coffee place. But once you enter there is a beautiful vintage feeling like something has been left from time its crowed but very nice. There is a lovely bar and table surrounding... More

This place is small so get there early to avoid waiting in line. The burger is amazing. They have outside seating which is great. And a good beer list. Definitely a hipster scene, but good.

It might be too hipsterish for my taste, but oh boy the deserts are amazing! I also had a decent IPA and a good latte. Apparently it's pretty crazy during rush hour, but we went there on Wednesday afternoon and it was empty. Highly recommended for the deserts.

We had dinner on a Wednesday night and sat outside without having to wait. Service was good and fast but not too fast, as is often the case in the US. My lamb pie stew was lovely, hot and comforting and my partner's burger was also excellent. Only minor point was that the fries were really too salt. Other than... More
