Hello Coffee Lovers,


5 Points Coffee & Tea is about to turn one (1)!

On Saturday, August 11th, we'll have a full year of operations under our belt! It's certainly been a whirlwind 12-months. We are beyond grateful for the continuous support of our customers and neighbors who have sustained us. And, of course, we are thankful beyond measure for our incredible staff team.

This feels like a critical milestone and more importantly is good excuse to celebrate. Please join us for the festivities (see details below). You won't be disappointed -- after all, we have a full day of performances, activities and specials planned!

We set out from the beginning to be a true neighborhood cafe where friendships are forged. As we head into the coming year we remain committed to this vision and will continue sponsoring regular events to bring people together. If you have an idea for an event let us know!!!

Slán go fóill!
Team 5 Points.
