Another French-inspired breakfast spot worth visiting is Petit Chou. The low-key restaurant’s name translates to “Little Cabbage,” which is a cute nod to its surrounding neighborhood rather than an indicator of what to expect from its menu. Open for breakfast and lunch every day from 9 am to 3 pm, Petit Chou embraces its French theme with menu items like French toast crème brûlée, Croque Monsieur (and Madame), croissants, and more, so brush up on your French so that you can order things like baguettes in style.
You can’t miss this darling locale—just look for the periwinkle blue building on Memorial Drive. The menu offers Southern-meets-French eats with standouts like the French toast crème brûlée combier, a heavenly dish of croissants soaked in heavy cream and spices that are griddled and topped off with vanilla bean whipped cream. For something on the more southern side, try the Cabbagetown breakfast bowl with grits, cheddar, choice of protein, and tomato concasse.
