Love this place. Very neat inside, bright and cheerful........bread and pastries always consistently good. Love coming here early in the morning and getting something with my coffee. A credit to the 5 points neighborhood. I keep coming back, what can I say !

“The Best Bread and Pastries In Town”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Finally Athens has a genuine bakery! The bread is phenomenal with a crusty outside and tender inside and delicious flavor. 5 Points Levain is great for sandwiches and served with Nutella or jam. Walnut Raisin Bread is full of goodies and makes excellent French toast. The Kalamata Olive Bread is a favorite of ours and generally has olives in every slice. My very favorite thing there is the Morning Roll, which is sort of a combination cinnamon roll/croissant. My family loves the Pan Au Chocolat and the croissants are light buttery and melt-in-your-mouth delicious. There are other pastries and danishes as well. They only have a few flavors each day, but all have been great! Everything is hand crafted in house. They take care in sourcing their flours and are generally conscientious about all ingredients. There's not a lot of room to eat there but when there's room it is fun to sit on stools at the front window and watch people walking in 5 points.
