My wife and I came here around noon for a Sunday brunch. We were seated immediately, even though we had not made a reservation.
My wife ordered the Southern Breakfast Plate. I ordered the Southern Benedict. This is two poached eggs, bacon, and gravy served on a big biscuit. :-) I ordered coffee, and my wife ordered decaf. It is worth ordering coffee here just to try the french press decanters that brew your coffee at your table. Brunch was excellent. Our total bill for these two brunches was about $36. That's kind of pricey, but everything was nicely upscale so we got what we paid for. We left full and happy.
Our server, a friendly young lady named Lindy ("like the 'Lindy Hop'"), took very good care of us. When we asked the origin of the restaurant's name, she clued us in that this area of town was originally surveyed in 1892 as the East Huntsville Addition, before it became known as Five Points.
