Five Points:

Nofo in Five Points is not only one of my favorite places for brunch but is also one of my favorite places to shop for gifts you simply cannot find anywhere else. Find anything and everything to step up your kitchen game with the plethora of unique products, one of a kind gifts, china, and accessories. Did I also mention that they do giftbaskets? The next time you are searching for a pick-me-up for a friend, call Nofo and they will put together a beautiful basket full of small happys sure to make anyone’s day.
