A friendly atmosphere and some good ole Southern comfort food make this spot feel like home. Fill up on goodies like soft shell crab po' boys, sloppy joes, redneck tacos (coleslaw & BBQ pork in a pancake!) and fried bologna sandwiches.
Serving "the stuff you can count on", Highland Bakery dishes out breakfast sammies, granola, and a fried chicken benedict in the AM, and follows through later in the day with comfort food staples like grilled cheese.
A casual diner done up in cabin motifs and murals by local artists. This breakfast and lunch joint is doing Southern grub right with fish and grits, biscuits, and huevos. They've also got a lot of vegetarian options if you're looking for some country fried tempeh.
The biscuits with cranberry apple butter at the Flying Biscuit are definitely one of the most iconic dishes in ATL, and therefore they area must-try if you're anywhere near the area.
The classic NYC breakfast sandwich has gone South at Goldberg’s and that makes this Atlanta’s best bagel spot.
This whimsical European resto and catering company plates seasonal and locally sourced dishes.
The one-time Buckhead breakfast favorite, Joy Cafe, is now a Midtown mainstay for from-scratch breakfast foods with Southern flavor. The updated, much larger 2,800sqft space is home to a full bar and large patio, but Joy Cafe remains otherwise unchanged. Breakfast is still bustling, prices still low, Joy’s Big Berry Belgian Waffle is just as big and heaping with seasonal berries, and Joy’s Famous Shrimp & Grits are still just as famous (once a feature on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, always a feature on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives).
This is the great-granddaddy of Atlanta breakfast spots with lots of famous characters like Ron Burgundy (and some real life celebs like Clint Eastwood, Dave Chappelle, and Guy Fieri) who have eaten here. The signature dish is the country ham with eggs, and biscuits with their “red eye” gravy.
Brunch’s only flaw is that it’s usually relegated exclusively to weekends, and Kirkwood’s Le Petite Marché solves this quandary by making brunch an all-day, everyday affair. Sandwiches are the name of the game here: some, like The Sarah, modeled into paninis, others like the Egg Sandwich cradling delicate scrambles, and still others like the Caribbean Chicken slathering spicy jerk aioli onto unassuming chicken breast and other sliced meats. Sweets include a French Toast Sandwich, whose bready bits are battered in vanilla rum before serving as a cocoon for maple syrup-drizzled eggs and bacon.
This is the best 24-hour place in Buckhead. It's got all your classic American fare, but the stand-out is the the signature R. Thomas quesadilla with a perfect combo of eggs, bacon, cheese, and greens. It's delicious, yet somehow ridiculously healthy. Food's made of organic, free-range, gluten-free and raw food options. At any time of day, it's got fluorescent lighting and colorful talking parrots. Eat here to know Atlanta, and know yourself. Or, you know, just to get full and feel refreshingly weird all at the same time.
