Five Points

7 Jan

IMG_4452While I was house hunting (and dreaming!) with a friend last week, we happened upon Five Points Market & Restaurant. While I was aware of who and where they were, I hadn’t yet found time to stop in. We happened in right around three, and they were closing up the restaurant.

I vowed I would be back real soon. A friend and I had breakfast there on Saturday (did I mention how much I love breakfast?!) amidst the cold dark winter. We opted to sit inside. We quickly ordered a hot beverage – the chai and a cappuccino – to warm our frozen souls. As I surveyed the menu, I realized that I wanted to try everything! I decided on the Bandito Blanco, a mustard potato pancake, with thinly sliced ham, poached eggs, a house mornay sauce, pico de gallo and fresh herbs. Every morsel was a delight. The cilantro tasted like it was just picked this morning. My friend chose the Huevos Rancheros – a gluten free and vegetarian offering – over medium eggs with a house ranchero sauce, pico, pesto and white cheddar, served with pinto beans and fresh corn tortillas.

The restaurant was quite busy, with newbies and regulars alike, and the staff was attentive and friendly.

I’m not gonna lie. This restaurant has shot nearly to the top in my book as far as breakfast is concerned and will give my fave a run for its money!  My mouth is watering as I write!

The chef and owners are committed to good, locally and regionally sourced foods, and its evident in the bold, fresh flavor of every bite.

I’ll be back. Real soon. Check out their story in January’s issue of Zocalo.  See you at the corners of Stone, Sixth and 18th!
