City Pulse

The French call it le grand petit déjeuner, Germans call it gabelfrà¼hstà¼ck, and Americans call it brunch. No matter what you decide to say, there’s no denying that Five Points is one of the best late breakfast/early lunch spots in the city. With a market fresh menu that changes daily you can choose anything from poached farm fresh eggs served over house-made pork fennel sausage and a buttermilk biscuit to a grass fed beef burger with Vermont white cheddar, smoked bacon and crispy red onions. Indulge in a little “hair of the dog” with a delicious bloody mary, mimosa or bellini by the glass or in a pitcher for the table.

My favorite way to start a brunch here is an order of the delicious churros with Mexican hot chocolate-warm, sweet and most importantly, fried. What else could a girl ask for? Then, a hearty dish of egg rancheros, layers of corn tortillas, eggs, salsa verde, pico de gallo and cheese. All baked to perfection and topped off with some crispy tortilla strips.

Filled to capacity every weekend with hungry, hung over New Yorkers, the wait may have you questioning whether it’s worth it. Don’t hesitate- have a cup of coffee (or head straight to a mimosa like myself) at the bar and enjoy a five star brunch at Five Points. There’s definitely no secret to share with your friends…just great food and great times.

Call ahead for reservations to secure a spot.
