SouthPoint: An American Cafe was a fine-dining restaurant located in the Munger Building at 1931 11th Avenue South at Five Points South. It was opened in 1984 by Jack Prater, through his Cabana Cafe Management. The menu featured prime seafood and steaks along with a seasonally-changing array of French-inspired specialties.

Like many of the city's more upscale restaurants, SouthPoint closed for its first summer, but remained open in 1985, with Mike McCowen as manager. In 1986 a reviewer recommended that, "if you want food that is not quite as good as Highland's, where reservations are easier to obtain and the premium 'on being seen' is not quite so high," that Southpoint was a good option.

Prater also opened an adjoining wine bar, 20th & Vine in 1987. Both businesses closed before the end of the decade.
