Coffee and sandwiches. With enough of those two things, there’s no mountain you can’t climb (except for the dangerous ones, probably). If you live in Greenpoint, get them here. They serve a bunch of different sandwiches for lunch, but we’re fans of the ones they do at breakfast. There isn’t a huge selection in the morning, but what they do have is solid. This place is tiny, but you can usually find a seat on weekdays. Also, if it’s nice out, you can eat on their little back patio.

Five Leaves has been a Brooklyn hipster staple since 2008. We don't love it as much as other people seem to, but brunch is good, they do a solid burger, and the scene is always entertaining.
