Five Points Cafe

A beacon of true NY-style bagels in Australia.

Five Points is a beacon of traditional bagel simplicity — it makes the closest thing to a 'real' NY bagel in Australia. Paring down its offering to just bagels and coffee, this minimalist eatery scores full marks in every category. Its rendition of the classic smoked salmon ($11.90) and reuben ($10.90) numbers are dreamlike, and even the slightly non-traditional tuna and sweetcorn ($9.90), and turkey and brie ($11.90) bagels, feel old-school and dependable. Each bready ring is a balanced, chewy and, where necessary, zesty breakfast or brunch. The lovely little cafe floats atop the crest of a hill along Little Collins Street, managing to capture NY deli flavours, while swapping out the hustle and bustle for an air of serenity. Five Points is simply one of the best ways to start your day.
