753 Cherokee Ave.
This tiny take-out shop with a few tables is located across from Zoo Atlanta. We love to sit there eating a sandwich that heaps a meat, a cheese, perhaps arugula or herbs, and a designer pesto or infused mayo on country Italian from the Bread Garden. Meanwhile we pity the poor fools across the street noshing at the horrific McDonald's done up to resemble a safari outpost. There usually is a daily sandwich special, along with a menu of favorites, a flawless chicken Caesar salad and occasional fresh baked goods -- weird scones, fat muffins and cookies as big as your hand. Call ahead. Hours seem to be irregular.
