Our daughter, who lives in nearby Leicester, recommended Five Points to us, and what an experience. Delicious, classic diner breakfasts (our waitress recommended the Spanish Omelet, and I'm glad we followed her recommendation!) huge portions, coffee re-filled without your asking, and cheap prices. And when you look around, you'll know that this is the place for locals! An authentic diner... More

I love diners. I seek them out wherever I go. Five Points was my breakfast spot a few days ago. It was friendly and inexpensive for breakfast. The counter service was quick and the eggs were cooked just right. A nice spot if you're looking for a good neighborhood diner.

The service is quick and the food is yummy. Best gravy in town. The sweet tea is a too sweet for my taste but just ask them to mix it with a fourth of glass of water.

They accommodated special requests and with a smile. Don't miss this opportunity for an inexpensive delious meal . Short hours so check , open to 7 M - F , but... More

Five Points has been serving traditional southern fare in downtown Asheville for as long as I can remember. It's a small neighborhood eatery that has been serving up great classic southern breakfasts and lunches forever. If you want a great price and like a down home place to enjoy yourself, this is it!

Great atmosphere and rapid service. Hearty breakfast with no holds bared on your daily cholesterol intake. Excellent if you are looking for a traditional American breakfast on a budget (was about $10 per person). Only complaint was the weak coffee. The waitress was delightful.

They have been changing slowly but steadily over the years and breakfast is no longer available for $3. But they still have the best deal in town. Really great hash browns - REAL hash browns - biscuits, eggs, and endless coffee and tea. Fast service and a friendly staff. They also have lunch and dinner now with specials and Greek... More

It's a diner, but it is a diner that excels in what it does. Traditional breakfast fare done well: omelets, chops, eggs benedict, you name it. Five Points is busy, as it should be, but they turn their tables pretty quickly so your wait should be fairly brief. Good coffee. Good service. We had been before and we will return... More

I should probably give it more stars..... but that would only apply if there were categories, as in "diner" category. Definitely value for your meal. I've only ever had breakfast there & it's always been very predictable. Service is fast, staff are great & food is abundant.

Based on trip 5/15/2016. Pros/Cons at the end I work third shift so often i find myself in an interesting conundrum of finding someplace cheap and good to eat at 7am, when most lunch restaurants are still closed and the best you can do is fast food. I read about this place on TripAdvisor and thought i would give it... More
