Coffee at the Point

Coffee at the Point is a cozy, welcome addition to the Five Points neighborhood. Owner Ryan Cobbins has transformed the former Blackberries space into a community coffee haven serving such local products as Novo Coffee and wines by Cottonwood Cellars -- the latter available by the flight, glass or bottle. In the morning the place is packed with locals enjoying fresh-brewed coffees, teas, espresso drinks and breakfast burritos; business types pop in for lunches of sandwiches and soups. In the afternoons, customers dig into smooth, icy gelato and cookies, cakes and pastries while they take advantage of the shop's free wireless. There's a quiet space off to the side of the main area for people who need to concentrate on their work -- and a row of bistro tables with intimate lighting for couples who want to concentrate on each other, canoodling while they caffeinate. Coffee at the Point is also conveniently located by Crossroads Theater, for those who need a little pick-me-up to get through the next act.
