Consider yourself lucky if you find an empty table on a Tuesday afternoon. This place is so popular, it is packed at all times. Initially, I thought it's because of the trendy crowd, the privileged hipsters if you may, but no, the food is actually incredible. Try the Moroccan scramble for brunch, it's unbelievably good! Great place to sit outside if it's sunny out.

I have been here several times while visiting my friend in Brooklyn, the food never disappoints! I usually order the BLAT (bacon, lettuce, AVOCADO!, and tomato) and my friend orders the ricotta pancakes! Both are fantastic! The BLAT has a cumin-lime mayo on it which is to die for. I always try to replicate this when I make them at home! And for not being a pancake person, I always end up eating off my friend's plate because the pancakes are insanely good and topped with tons of fruit.
Brunching on weekends here can definitely be quite a wait but if the weather's nice you can stand outside and people watch, always interesting. Definitely one of my favorite brunches in Brooklyn and I always beg to go when I'm visiting.Recommended for:Foodies

All roads lead to Five Leaves, or so it seams, as three prominent Williamsburg-Green Point thoroughfares intersect at deliciousness. Yes, Five Leaves is a gastronomic joy complete with duck confit, oysters on the half shell, truffle fries and a brunch menu - with house cured gravlax! - that is out of this world. And to accompany your food, a specialty cocktail menu and a list of fine wines are at your disposal. Five Leaves tends to be very busy, especially during brunch, so be prepared to wait. Unfortunately, they do not take reservations at this point in time, so you are at the mercy of the crowds. The wait is worth it though.
