1. The Nook 1144 Piedmont Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30309

A neighborhood tavern with tasty bar eats that're actually affordable -- they've got a whole 10-10 menu stocked with 10 items for $10 or less. We're pretty sure Charlie Sheen would call that winning.

2. Sublime Doughnuts 535 10th St NW, Atlanta, GA 30318

Sublime is to donuts what Picasso was to painting. They're serious about the craft of creating sweet dough with a hole in the middle and their huge variety of gourmet donuts convey that with every delectable bite.

3. Mary Mac's Tea Room 224 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30308

At Mary Mac's Tea Room, patrons can enjoy a taste of authentic Southern cooking and hospitality. This means heaping plates of staples like fried chicken, braised ox tails, and grilled liver and onions, as well as a number of specialty drinks like the Mint Julep and Georgia Peach. The place is over 70 years old and was officially named “Atlanta’s Dining Room” by the City of Atlanta. Read any online traveler’s guides and you’ll be convinced that there’s no way to visit Atlanta without eating here. There are pencils and paper sheets on your table for you to write your own order, a tradition of MM’s that dates wayyy back (pre-Bieber).
