Today, we're headed to East Hollywood for lunch at Five Leaves, a trendy new cafe in Los Angeles! Check it out to see what we loved about the space and everything we ordered off the menu...

The Space — The interior is so dreamy and very art deco inspired. The space has lots of high arches, cool brass details throughout, terrazzo tables (which you know we love!), and plants lining the ceilings. They have a full bar on one side and a restaurant on the other with a mix of tables and booths. It's cozy and chic.

The Food — We ordered a mix from the menu so we could try it all! Since this restaurant is known for their oysters, we ordered their daily market oysters which are freshly shucked and comes with a cucumber mignonette. The watermelon and arugula salad was a fan favorite - it was light, refreshing, and filling. We also ordered their Tuna Banh Mi sandwich, along with a local cheese board (it comes with apple and celery which is such a great pairing!), and charred shishito peppers. They also have breakfast during the early afternoon as well, so you can mix the two options or have a true brunch!
