    A tasty brunch option. Be sure to wait or get there early to get a table. Pancakes are a must, whether you eat them alone or get an order for the table!

    Sunday brunch is very popular, but if you are just passing by, don’t miss out on their coffee to-go, served from a little window on the side. Or go for some oysters and cocktails at the end of the day Read more

    This is another one of my favorite date places. Nothing says true foodie better than Le Bernardin! I loved my food especially that t was my first time and took advice from the staff on what to eat.

    Exceptional tiny little restaurant! Get a freshly squeezed lemonade while wiating for your food. The avocado toast is really worth it.The waiters are friendly and the service is quick. Good atmosphere

    It's the Five Leaves Burger (with a sunny side up, ananas and beet! Triple delicious) and the truffled fries. And the chopped (spicy!) kale. And the Granola. And the iced coffee. And ...

    The delicious Five Leaves Burger is an 8 oz., grass-fed beef patty, topped with a fried pineapple ring, a slice of pickled beet, an egg, and harissa mayo on a ciabatta bun. Read more

    Our favorite spot in our old work neighborhood. Feeling sweet? Pancakes. Savory? The Moroccan Scramble. Hungry? The Big Brekkie. You can also get a Grapefruit Margarita at 9am if you need one.

    The vinegarette w the oysters is delicious! Also their mussels come in a curry soup. Only place I've seen do this, well executed! Pair w the chateau du pas cerf rose for a perfect summer lunch

    Another amazing spot for brunch of dinner... often a wait so I recommend going here if you're an earlier riser. Only a 10/15 min walk and right off of Mccarran Park! The ricotta pancakes are unreal!

    Get there early to get a table, you might need to wait around 30 minutes at busy times. Get the truffle oil fries, the burger and the mushrooms on toast are amazing. Also try the mimosa cocktail!

    Never fails. The mussels and truffle fries are a staple in my diet. Worth the wait or go when they have the limited menu mid afternoon and eat oysters outside with an awesome cocktail.

    Ordered a boulevardier cocktail (negroni with rye instead of gin) and it was perfectly made. Followed up with some oysters and the outstanding Five Leaves Burger with truffle fries. I slept well.

    Expect a long wait, but it's worth it. For brunch my fav is the ricotta pancakes. The roasted veggies and quinoa salad is a healthy tasty dinner. They also offer coffee to go from a side window.

    It’s worth the trek to Greenpoint for this A+ patio brunch, especially with these epic ricotta pancakes served with honeycomb butter and a sandwich-style tower of fruit. Read more

    Ricotta pancakes are delicious again after a rough spell. Fruit, compound butter and maple syrup are great. The pancakes are quite dense from the ricotta but have good texture, almost creamy

    You HAVE to go. Is a place one of my Swedish colleagues suggested to me and they have delicious ricotta pancakes! Coffee is also super good.

    Now that the weather is warming up, grab a table outside at Five Leaves. Their house made Ricotta app is tough to beat for a sharing on a Date Night. Plan to arrive early or late, crowds can be tough.

    Get the oysters. Few places serve really great oysters in BK and this is one of them. Always check out the specials and the cocktails. This kitchen knows their pork and sea food.

    Been wanting to try this place for months, but there's always a long wait. Finally, went on a rainy day and the food was amazing! This place is a must! Get the mussel appetizer, phenom!

    The famous fig leaves burger is a mountain of mouthfuls that is well worth climbing. The menu as a whole has some inspired ingredient combinations (beetroot + pineapple + egg + beef).

    Excellent brunch spot! Come early, it is packed. The pancakes are insane and if you like muscles, they come in a huge silver pale (bucket). Organic eggs are used. And the coffee art is nice :)

    The ricotta pancakes will forever haunt your most beautiful dreams. We had problems with general service but they made up for them by apologizing and being awesome. Will always recommend.

    Surely everyone must love the fluffy pancakes here!? Served with fruits and ice cream, it can be very filling but definitely something you shouldn't miss.

    Get the fives burger with truffle fries (yes truffle fries) if you are a meat eater. There is no superior burger on this side of Brooklyn.

    Sankkerimatkat approves this place. Excellent atmosphere even during early lunch. Hip & warm interior. Great service, friendly and smiling waitresses. Amazing kale salad. Hard rock from vinyl.

    This place has been one of my favourites since its opening. Impossible wait for a table these days at the weekend though. All the food is amazing, but if you have children, no high chair.

    Thank you, Heath Ledger! Truffle fries are TOTALLY worth coming! Pancakes fall you apart. Awesome place for brunch. Make a reservation and arrive ON TIME! It gets incredibly crowded.

    Stumptown coffee. If you get there too late on a weekend, there's always the coffee window at the side. Still a wait though. My boyfriend says, "Big Breakkie is the best brunch in New York."

    The Five Leaves burger and truffle fries are always a safe bet. For a lighter option, go for the chopped black kale (anchovy goooodness) and seasonal soup, which in autumn is especially delicious.

    It's hard to go wrong with this menu but two favorites are: the moroccan scramble and the burger. No reservations. Plan on a walk through the park or the hood when you're given a 40 min+ wait time.

    Brave the inevitably long wait for an exceptional Sunday brunch experience complete with bassy house music. Ricotta pancakes, burger, figgy ricotta cheese.

    Try the pancakes or the truffle frites, yummylicious! Go there early or prepare to wait on the week end. Well worth it though!

    By far my favorite brunch place in Brooklyn. Perfect ambiance, great food, though the staff (and long wait) could use some work. I recommend the Mushroom Toast, it's heavenly!
  • Matt L.
    The Five Leaves has a small indoor area, so be prepared to find seating outside. Get the cheese burger. Comes with pineapple and beet.

    Mushroom toast (sautéed mushrooms & broccoli rabe served over seven-grain toast w/ verbena cream & a poached egg), ricotta pancakes served w/ honeycomb butter, berries, & maple syrup.

    The kale salad is delicious, and a little spicy. The burger with pineapple and an egg is perfect for a weekend lunch / somewhere between a lunch and a brunch.

    It's known for brunch, but definitely hit Five Leaves for dinner, or some classy pre-Brooklyn Bowl cocktails and oysters. If any iteration of duck is on the menu, do it.

    Try the duck. My friend had the oddest dish however, one big bowl of pig's meat, that was it. Great atmosphere but obviously big difference in how accomplished the entrees are.

    If you like brussel sprouts, fer chrissakes get these brussel sprouts. If you don't like brussel sprouts, you must get these so you will understand that you actually do like brussel sprouts.

    Always packed, but with good reason. Best brunch in Greenpoint. Lots of outdoor seating, dog friendly, and close to the park.

    The burger is pretty darn good. Get it with gruyere. Don't debate getting the truffle fries—you want them, they're amazing. Service is so-so, so don't come starving.

    Takes a while to get a table at this small place, but when you do, it is really great! The Moroccan Omelet & the pancakes are worth every bite.

    Breakfast is a tough one! So go with 3 people. And MAKE them order the ricotta pancakes and sage scrambled eggs while you take down the force that is the house-baked beans. & get the chorizo!!

    Get the ricotta to start and order extra bread. You'll need it. Mussels are excellent and if you're not getting the burger try the kale salad.
