Change of plans?

Anybody know what's up with 5 Points Cafe?

UPDATE: As of 9 pm Sunday, 7/13, the "Grand Opening" has been pushed back to 7/26.




  • Got tired of us looking in their windows to try to figure out if they're actually open, all those days when they're in there blaring music over the outdoor speaker over the door?

    The brown paper in the window says their grand opening is this Saturday, IIRC.

  • Yeah, but they've been open for months.

  • Well, it's more like they've been "open" for months. Setting aside the mysteriously-standard practice of having "grand openings" at dates/time other than one's actual opening date, their 'openness' itself has been somewhat debatable.

    To wit: sometimes you'd walk by, and the sign would say open, but there'd be nobody in there. Other times you'd walk by, and there would be people inside sawing and banging on things, and if you stuck your head in they'd say they were closed.

    Other times there'd be a giant pile of produce outside on the sidewalk & nobody around.

    I've read on other blogs that people have actually been able to, you know, go inside & order food, but I'm not even sure that that's been the norm.

    Of course, I'll freely admit that with Toast next door, my curiosity about Five Points Cafe hasn't been strong enough to override the siren song of panini & crostini.

    And maybe that's part of the plan: cover up the windows for a week, get all the ducks in a row, pique the curiosity of the Toast regulars, and then "open," grandly, in an attempt to convert one's status from "that weird place next to Toast" into something more enticing.

    Of course, if that was the plan, then I guess it would've made more sense to have the grand opening on July 1st, the day that the Toasters went on vacation for a week.
