Five Points Bakery is on the corner of Rhode Island and Brayton facing West Utica. Sitting side by side with Urban Roots, the Arts & Crafts inspired design is easy on the eyes and a soothing escape from the daily grind.
The loaves of bread line the wall and fill baskets. The scent of golden crisp wheat fills the air. Each baked item the same hue, a russet colored whole wheat. There is an earthy tang in the air too from the freshly brewed coffee.
Coolers are filled with milk, cheese, yogurt, meats, eggs and more. The shelves have coffee, honey, beeswax, soap, jams, sunflower seed oil and molasses.
They serve organic tea and coffee and delightful pastries and toast.
Melissa iced hand sized cinnamon rolls while my tea steeped on the counter.
Coffee cakes, rolls and other sweets sit under glass domes.
Well sugared scones piled like a fairy's tent, wait for a sweet tooth.
The bagged loaves of heavy scented apple cider bread are lined neatly in their basket on the counter.
I ordered the lavender mint tea and...
...the special. The seeded loaf had bits of onion hidden in it. Served with Farm style soft cheese and strawberry jam, it was too easy to shmear on too much.
What a delightful way to spend a moment. If you find yourself in the Westside with a grumbly belly, stop in and visit with Kevin and Melissa.
