There's nothing too ambitious about this small bagel shop. But that's its greatest strength: if you're after a quick bagel and a decent coffee, this is the place to be (or alternately, 5&Dime).
Like quite a few other cafes, Five Points gets its dough rings from Glick's, but it manages to stand out thanks to a range of adventurous fillings. Alongside classics such as smoked salmon or Reuben there's an excellent rendition of Peking duck, as well as pulled pork; avocado and feta; Nutella; and more.
Add in well-made coffee from Redstar Roasters, the particularly friendly staff and a great outdoor seating area, and you’ve got quite the package. Five Points shows how enticing simple things can be, provided they're done well.
