Five Points is a great place to grab brunch with friends. The home style cooking fits the bill on a Sunday afternoon after a fun filled weekend. Favorites include the mac'n'cheese - baked with a nice white vermont chedder, and poached eggs with pork sausage and a sweet creamy tomato sauce. Go with a group and order a pitcher of Bloody Mary or Morning Punch and you are good to go for the rest of a lazy Sunday afternoon....

A great place to have dinner with a small group, with another person or solo. Decor is zen-like but not foreign. Service was great. The menu is put together well with fresh, seasonal ingredients. Great execution on the food. I'll be going back.

The fabric covered walls in this beautiful interior lessen the noise in this gorgeous spot. Creative food - fried artichokes, roast pig, sea scallops - and perfect, but not hovering service make this place a keeper.

Enjoy Five Points brunch...it is outstanding! Our party of three - Mom, Dad and adult daughter - arrived early and waited in line enjoying the fine early-May sunshine. Upon opening, we were pleasantly greeted and brought to our inside table - not quite a Zen interior but clean and light with apple tree branches lining the restaurant center. We order the best bloody marys I've had in a long time and placed our food selections with Tabitha, leading a very well-trained professional team. While the restaurant and bar area filled quickly, Five Points never became noisy or uncomfortably cowded. Our food selections - eggs tinga, fritatta, and char grilled burger were scrumptious. A side of light and airy buttermilk biscuits were perfect. Can't wait to return soon for dinner.

This is a wonderful restaurant. Its just a fantastic atmostphere - the decor is very clean (but I would not call it zen) and its very lively but never too loud or too stressful. I have had wonderful dining experiences here - its another neighbourhood place for me but I think I love it best for Sunday brunch. And I don't even normally like American food. So many restaurants claim to serve the best Sunday brunch... I would say Five Points is up there although I would not say THE BEST. The drinks by the pitcher to start always helps. And I love eggs on Sundays and they pop theirs in the oven. Its terrific and so originial! Not fried or scrambled.... And the bacon is amazing! Yes, they are definitely a top contender for THE BEST. Dinner is terrific too... and I don't even like American...

Went here for Brunch. The food was out of this world. The best Bloody Mary I've had in a while. The roasted eggs were perfectly made. Service was a bit vague, but it was rush hour Sat brunch. Definitely worth returning to several more times. Good looking crowd.

Okay...I know it sounds ridiculous to be so excited about bacon (and those who don't eat pork won't be impressed by the distinction anyway) but really, it's FANTASTIC! I ordered the huevos rancheros with a side of bacon. As splendid as the huevos were, I wanted MORE BACON! Which is not to say that the portions aren't generous, b/c they are. I couldn't even finish the huevos rancheros, which were delightfully prepared with a spicy salsa and guacamole baked in. Also had one of the specialty bellinis. This restaurant is easily a favorite and is likely to become my brunch spot of choice!

Everything about this place works, the food was delicious and the portions were more than what most places serve. The food took some time to get out of the kitchen and one item had to go back, the steak was too rare, but I would go back.

A nice space with a surprisingly tasty and varied brunch. The subject line says it all. Food taken seriously here, it seems. I look forward to returning for dinner.
