One of my personal favorites in Five Points is Jittery Joe's Coffee where "Each little brown bean is a labor of love". They also win my "Success Star Award" for "Best Adaptive Use of Real Estate". The Five Points location is housed in a former gas station that was (in my humble opinion) an eyesore. The building is now attractive, funky, fitting and a delight to my eyes!
