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.
Alon's Bakery and Market - Virginia-Highland

Tools

Well-known for its excellence in baked goods and homey atmosphere, Alon's addition of an open kitchen and carryout case creates a swankier feel and options that are meant to be eaten at home. The meatballs look good and taste even better. You'll want to sop up the leftover sauce with some of Alon's fresh breads. You can't go wrong with the robust roasted lamb sandwich, the marinated and grilled chicken sandwich, the flaky croissants and the crumbly muffins. As always, the desserts will leave you speechless.
Atlanta Grill

Tools

The less formal cousin to the now defunct Ritz-Carlton Buckhead's Dining Room, this still-pricey restaurant offers upscale Southern cuisine and an unparalleled balcony view of the weirdness on Peachtree Street at night.

Tools

Popular with locals, serves up barbecue, catfish and meat-and-three with such essential sides as beans and coleslaw.
Beautiful Restaurant

Tools

Popular soul-food cafeteria in an eccentric building a couple of miles southwest of the West End.
BLT Steak

Tools

Judged without price in mind, the experience, revolving around big, bloody prime steaks and assuredly seasoned sides, is rife with pleasure. The restaurant's signature popovers, huge muffin-shaped poufs of bread laced with Asiago cheese, tempt you into ruining your appetite before the meal's even begun. And who could deny the gratification of a hulking rib eye? They serve manly, classic meals. It's just that the customer base, man-boy CEO types paying with their expensive accounts, makes this restaurant a tad unbearable.

Tools

Triangle-shaped bakery spot serves up sandwiches alongside sweets including delicious meringues -- including lemon, cinnamon and vanilla -- cupcakes, and throwback candy like Mary Janes and taffy.
Buttersweet Bakery

Tools

Friendly, retro-ish bakery offers such goodies as homemade cookies, cheesecake and muffins, as well as sandwiches and other fresh lunch fare.

Tools

One of those rare places that exists both for our brunching pleasure and for the good of the community. All proceeds go to ACSS (Atlanta Center for Self Sufficiency, Inc.), an organization that helps homeless men, women and veterans achieve self-sufficiency through employment readiness programs and job placement assistance. When the cafe isn't serving up some of the best brunch around, it offers meals all week long to the homeless community. Be sure to tip well -- the all-volunteer staff donates gratuities as well as time.

Tools

After 18 years in business, this French cafe is still baking fresh treats daily and delivering boxed lunches around town.

Tools

Cafe Mims is the latest spot to capitalize on the need for speedy lunchtime fare. The food, overseen by Livingston's executive chef Gary Mennie, is made fresh daily and pre-packaged so you can grab and go. The cafe opens early so you can pop in for some coffee and one of the homemade baked goods, such as the trio of mini bear claws filled with blueberries, cheese and almond paste. Sandwiches are the best thing the cafe has to offer at lunchtime.
Dwarf House

Tools

The original Chik-fil-A restaurant is open 24/6 (closed on the Sabbath) and serves an array of old-time diner grub, including biscuits and gravy, burgers and lemon icebox pie.
Empire State South

Tools

This outpost of Hugh Acheson's restaurant empire delivers the best spin on New Southern dining in Atlanta. Familiar dishes like pimento cheese, farm eggs, local trout, and pork belly are anything but clichés when they arrive at the table. Order your bourbon cocktails in a mason jar.
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.
Highland Bakery - Old Fourth Ward

Tools

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 seven 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.
