The black kale salad was all we talked about the rest of our trip! Highly recommend the modern cocktail. It was close quarters!

Excellent Breakfast can be found in this restaurant. The pancakes are not to be missed, but also the fresh fruit and sage omelet. Service is good. Long waiting lines during the weekends. Go early during the week.

I had the kale salad as I'm on a diet and it was nice. Everyone else had the breakfast which they loved. I also enjoyed a Bloody Mary. Make sure you pre book or be prepared to wait for a table.

Unassuming location. Food is impeccable. Our family of four tried over 10 dishes. All were exquisite. If I lived in Brooklyn, this would be a top spot to visit. The food was absolutely incredible. Very comfortable, low key environment. Wait staff was superb. Our selections included Charred Shishito Peppers, Oysters, Whole Grilled Dorade, Housemade Ricotta, Lamb, Celery root mash, grilled...

Before I go into the great things about Five Leaves, the only thing I did not like is that they just expect people to know to just wait out in the sidewalk until they come to you. They should really put a sign if that's what they want, instead of getting rude about it. On a different note, Five Leaves... More

We enjoyed an amazing breakfast in August 2016. It's a short walk from the William Vale Hotel (which I also highly recommend!) I highly recommend the Ricotta Pancakes and Avocado Toast. The staff is very friendly and there is great seating outside. Great iced coffee too!

This place is LEGIT ... But expect to wait if you go for Brunch ... So put your name start the timer on your iPhone and go grab a coffee up the street or go for a walk in the park across the street.

You should go here! The coffee is amazing and breakfast menu is to die for! I got the steel cut oats with fresh berries, nuts, and bananas... My husband got eggs and a sandwich that he loved!
