Milling its own flour from chemical-free grain is the cornerstone to this bakery's success. With signature whole-grain breads (white breads are available on request), you can stop worrying about preservatives in your food when you dive into an egg-and-cheese breakfast sandwich or one of the 18 lunch sandwiches. Also a comfort to any Southerner's heart, grits served here are stone-ground on the premises and can be bought to take home. Multiple locations around town.
The restaurant excels at simple beauty, in its classic American setting and in its flavor combinations. Cauliflower has just the right amount of lemon and caramelized edges to set it off. The antipasto plate will have you moving appreciatively from the warm semolina bread to the creamy feta cheese to the cured meats and pickled veggies. One may have a gut reaction to the all-around perfection, to the modern country club vibe, and feel of exclusivity. But there's no doubt that the Hil's food lives up to its surroundings, in quality as well as aspirations.

Home grown is a picturesque illustration of its straightforward aspirations and its eclectic Reynoldstown neighborhood. Most of what is served is grown by local farmers; therefore, the menu is short and changes daily, depending on what’s available. Simple Southern classics, however, such as a fried pork chop with gravy, are almost always available. For sides, be sure to order the creamed corn, fried green tomatoes, or other fresh local vegetables. Breakfast items include flaky biscuits with the standard egg/meat/cheese combinations and other soul-lifting eats. All the lunch entrees are available as the "blue collar lunch plate," which includes a side and a drink. Home grown is an evolution, for locavorism, for Reynoldstown and for Atlanta.
Located across Chastain Park, this New Southern standby feels like a country club where everyone is welcome. If the food doesn't wow, it certainly doesn't disappoint either. Think classic Southern creations all draped over mounds of '90s-esque flavored mashed potatoes. Don't leave without ordering pulled pork on a corn pancake or oatmeal-spice cake with caramel ice cream for dessert.
