    This was the cutest place. It reminded me of a greenhouse and even had a tree growing through the middle of the restaurant. It has good, healthy, and well made food. Loved it.

    Great for a non-traditional brunch. Expect everything from rice to salmon and ground pork. REALLY tasty. Oh and there's a real tree growing in the centre of the room for that extra personality.

    Can’t say enough good things. Super cute, relaxed treehouse vibe. Came for brunch and ordered these delicious Japanese meatballs with a poached egg. Def beats your average eggs beny brunch fare.

    Woah! Hipster Japanese style brunch. Hot apple cider was a super treat. Cutest atmosphere inside. An indoor hidden garden. A bit hard to find from the street, look for boarded timber walls. cash only!

    As a fan of brunch and Japanese food, this place is a dream come true. The udon noodles are some of the tastiest I've ever had, and the chicken meatballs are incredible. The atmosphere is adorable.

    Quite possibly my favorite new spot with a beautiful interior, great ambience, pleasant service, and pretty good food (love the matcha milk!)

    Simple and adorable coffee shop bliss. Enjoy free wi-fi while enjoying consistently good coffee and snacking on small sandwiches. The baristas are very friendly too.

    Super cute vibe! Croissant French Toast was great! Tsukune Don was good but needed a little spice. Service was okay- they took a while to bring out the drinks and sauces after bringing the food.

    The interior is absolutely lovely. Feels like you're in a tree house...there is an actual tree going through it. The Fig Brie Apple and Avocado Goat Cheese (I added egg) are both good sandwiches.

    Small, charming cafe. Many healthy and organic options and even some sweet treats for desert or a small snack. Felt like a hideaway in North Williamsburg. Light, airy and natural. A must visit!

    This skylight-illuminated, plant-filled Williamsburg nook feels like a secret tree house--a treehouse that serves lavender lattes and banana-Nutella croissants. Read more

    Best hidden gem in North Brooklyn - like a Japanese treehouse. Try the Matcha Cappuccino, Kabocha Pumpkin Pudding, amongst other sweets. Perfect spot for a quiet afternoon.

    A wonderful secret in the middle of Williamsburg - try the meatballs and the vegan bowl. Ice tea is also yummy.

    This place amazing. Went on a Sunday morning around 11 and got seated for two. Really great atmosphere and the salmon Japanese breakfast set was delicious. What a gem.

    One of the most adorable, cheery, and "cozy" (charmingly tiny) spots I've been in NY. Plants & sunshine abound as you enjoy fresh squeezed OJ, banana Nutella croissants, & creamy scrambled eggs.

    Shhh! This is a charming little coffee shop with delicious baked goods, sandwiches and soups -- all made in-house. It's also not as crowded as other neighborhood cafes, so don't tell anyone!

    I ordered the Croissant french toast with fruits. And side order of scramble eggs. It was delicious. Server was friendly as well.

    Beautiful space but croque madame is mushy and incredibly unappetizing. Homemade granola and fruit with yogurt is fine.

    An interesting take with an Asian and European twist. Had the chicken meatballs which was flavorful and fresh. Croissant french toast was well made not being too soggy.

    Great little brunch/lunch oasis. Love the vibe, indoors w/cool AC but plenty of natural light & large trees growing up through the roof. Get a banana-Nutella croissant.

    The new space has trees going through the middle! It's The Secret Garden meets Terabithia. It also has table service, so they might not let you linger forever like they used to...unclear.

    How can this place move?! It's so perfect here! Amazing place to chill and get some work done. Oh, and the Middle Eastern Salad is delicious. Doesn't hurt that it's $4 either!
