No, it’s not Sedona

As if Five Points Bakery and Toast Bar wasn’t dreamy enough, the owners have gone out and built a wonderful detached patio for customers to enjoy. What I especially love about this patio is that the builders utilized elements of a former building, along with the wall of an existing building, to create the appearance that it has been there for 100 years.

As a couple of us sat on the patio yesterday, I felt as if I was somewhere along the lines of Sedona – I think due to the intricate shadows that are cast, with adobe-like walls and rustic furniture. There are grapes being trained to grow up along one wall, and eventually onto an overhanging trellis (I would imagine). There’s nothing fancy about this place – it’s simple, natural and calming, and unlike any other patio that I have come across in Buffalo.


In true Five Point fashion, there’s also a super cute kids’ table with chairs, so that the little ones can enjoy their toast without being bothered by nagging adults.

Don’t let the computer fool you. There’s a place to tap into the internet (directly) inside the café, but there is no WiFi.
