Awesome service, friendly atmosphere, and delicious food and coffee. What more can you ask for? Five Leaves is the perfect place for brunch, and they offer a variety of delectable goods from sweet to savory! It is also the perfect place for people watching – if you’re into that sort of thing – since it’s too busy (read: noisy) for much conversation.
Start with the Truffle Fries (fantastic!), then order the Moroccan Scramble and/or Ricotta Pancakes, two of the most popular dishes. The Ricotta Pancakes were so amazing with 3 layers of fluffy, thick pancakes, blueberries, strawberries and bananas on top with a dollop of honeycomb butter. There were also bananas in between the first and second layer of the pancakes! Served with real maple syrup. The Moroccan Scramble was exceptional. Appreciate the freshness of it, as they seem to use higher quality ingredients. The presentation of the dishes are taken with such care, they’re pieces of art. The hot chocolate and lattes are also delicious. Get there early because this place is very, very popular!
