West Egg Cafe

Tools

This popular Westside cafe serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This place can get packed out, so expect a wait on weekends.
Sublime Doughnuts

Tools

Kamal Grant has his dough down -- his doughnuts ($1/each and $10/dozen) spring back into shape after each bite and taste like butter instead of fryer oil. His take on a Boston cream doughnut is whimsically shaped into a proud "A" for Atlanta, filled with silky custard and dipped in premium Belgian Callebaut chocolate. But the best one we've eaten is simply a swoon-worthy yeast doughnut slathered in sticky dulce de leche -- it was gone two seconds after the first bite. If you're looking for an option other than a birthday cake, check out the Sublime happy birthday doughnut box for $20. It's worth it.
Thumbs Up Diner - Old Fourth Ward

Tools

Thumbs Up is a breakfast joint whose weekend waits are worth braving. Nutty whole wheat biscuits and nicely composed egg scrambles are served to one of the town's most wonderfully integrated dining crowds. Prepare to wait on the weekends, as the whole neighborhood seems to descend here to recover from their sins at Sister Louisa's Church.
ADios Café

Tools

The cafe's name does not mean goodbye, but "of the gods" -- a tribute to the Mayans, who discovered chocolate in 600 A.D. and believed it was a gift from the gods. They offer such goodies as handmade chocolate trufas (truffles), immensely fruity little strawberry pound cake loaves that are flavored with Jarritos (a Mexican soft drink), and more. But the cafe struggles from some rumbles of faux authenticity. It offers churros served in both the traditional and cajeta-filled versions, but stores them in refrigerated case, which ruins the integrity of their crunchy fried crust no matter how much they are reheated. Fortunately, the cafe will fry them to order if asked.
Flying Biscuit Cafe - Midtown

Tools

Flying Biscuit is one of the great mysteries of Atlanta: How does a mediocre restaurant chain maintain a rabid following? There are better biscuits in town, but that doesn't stop devotees of the Flying Biscuit from lining up for a table at this brunch destination. Still, the pancakes aren't bad and the people watching is unparalleled.
Home Grown

Tools

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.
Java Jive

Tools

This breakfast-only restaurant in the heart of town has a retro vibe and tons of charm; the decor mostly consists of vintage kitchen appliances and old tin advertisements. Owners Shira Levetan and Steven Horowitz, a husband-and-wife team, have been making modern meals in their retro-feel restaurant for more than 20 years - and are providing consistent quality throughout the years. Great coffee, too.
Thumbs Up Diner - East Point

Tools

The second location for Thumbs Up Diner still has the exposed-brick-and-retro-stool, down-to-earth decor of the original. Expect to wait on weekends.
