We went here for a late breakfast, the kitchen is open all day so even a very late breakfast should work. The pancakes can serve two, the char / salmon with black bread is very delicious. The atmosphere is relaxed, no hurries. There seems to be a difference between Brooklyn and Manhattan

I drove 45 minutes from Manhattan to dine at Five Leaves for breakfast after the great reviews on trip advisor. The food and the service left much to be desired. I ordered the Brekkie, which was below average in my opinion. I wasn't fond of the hash browns-- however, my poached egg was prepared perfectly. To add insult to injury,... More

While traveling over the weekend we were required to check out from our accommodations before 11, however had a flight at 3:30. We needed to find somewhere to eat, but also had luggage for 2 adults and 2 toddlers. Not too easy to find a place that will store your things and feed you. I called a couple of hotels... More

We met my cousin here for lunch with the kids. Prices were reasonable, food was excellent quality and ethically sourced, and the staff was helpful. We will look forward to our next visit.

I can't speak highly enough of the food here. We thought it was great. The only problem was deciding what to have! I thought I had worked it out in advance by looking at the menu online but when I got there some of the other dishes looked so nice. We went for brunch around 11 on a weekday morning.... More

After walking up and down Greenpoints main street, we asked a guy sitting on his porch steps for advice. He recommended the Five Leaves. Small ish,trendy, studentlike clientele with Neil Young greatest hits playing loud.Charming waitress and big portions, burgers, salads ,soups.Fitted the bill after our transatlantic flight. Tried again later in the week but an hour wait. Tables outside... More

We had breakfast and dinner at Five leaves. Great location, on a corner in the middle of Greenpoint. Both the breakfast and the dinner were excellent. Nice coffee and tea, avocado sandwich with scrambled eggs for breakfast and one of the better hamburgers I have had for dinner. We were told that the service could be so and so at... More

An amazing place with excellent food and great atmosphere. One can't réserve but that is no problem because you drink something in the bar across the street( the one with the London phone booth in front of it) while you wait. Try the muscles and whatever main dish you take, the French fries with truffles need to be ordered as... More

Popped in here on friends recommendation enroute to airport. Ricotta pancakes are to die for!!! Enough maybe syrup and honeycomb butter to take down a ship. Much better than grangers in London! Worth a visit. Disappointments that outside dining wasn't open at 9/9:30 but guess it's permit restricted. The sunshine was perfect as I was going.

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
