Five Leaves

Brought to fruition thanks to the estate of late actor Heath Ledger, a friend of owner Jud Mongell, this café in Greenpoint has a casual vibe with nautical décor, and homey Australian accented items on the menu. Open daily from breakfast until late, it’s the neighborhood haunt you’ve always dreamed of for comforting food, albeit in Brooklyn. Items like devils on horseback (bacon wrapped medjool dates with dijon mustard) and flash fried oysters are the perfect start to your meal, while the various main courses ranging from pastas to burgers satisfy even the hungriest city traveler.

I often skip over to Brooklyn for my brunch fix – Five Leaves is always delicious.
