Decatur is truly blessed with some absurdly delicious restaurants. Case in point: Ms. Icey’s Kitchen. Their fusion Southern and Caribbean cuisine is all comfort in a super modern and very cool environment. Whatever you do, order the skillet cornbread!
A newcomer to the Atlanta dining scene, Breakfast At Barney’s is providing a delicious and creative brunch menu in the most beautiful of atmospheres. It’s the perfect place to have brunch and get boozy. Want to get a little fancy? Try their 14 karat gold topped pancakes. Want to get REALLY fancy? Try their $1,000 “Mansa Musa” tower that’s a combo of the 14 karat gold pancakes, the yard bird platter, fried lobster and grits, 1 bottle of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Brut, and serves up to four guests.
College Park comes through again with the brunch goodness. The Real Milk & Honey specializes in showstopping dishes and generous portions of Southern delights. Brunch is served on weekdays and weekend evenings too, so you can enjoy their southern fried lobster and grits and smothered chicken and biscuits any time of day. Get the honey biscuits too!
The dining scene in College Park is heating up with new restaurants opening every day, but don’t forget about longtime staple the Corner Grille. The shrimp and grits? Phenomenal. The beignets? Outstanding. The cajun seafood pasta? Out of this world! Settle in for the brunch wait–it’s worth it.
Did you think Downtown Atlanta didn’t have any good eats? Think again. Wildly popular brunch spot Atlanta Breakfast Club’s got diners raving about their chicken and waffles, peach cobbler French toast, and salmon croquettes. Even with COVID-19 going on the lines are long, so go early!
A favorite of Kirkwood restaurants and beyond, Le Petit Marche is a woman-owned spot that makes the top of brunch lists year after year. Their griddle cakes are always fantastic, but if you want to fall right into a food coma, try their French Toast sandwich, stuffed with fluffy scrambled eggs and bacon. They’re takeout and delivery only at this time, but still taste just as deliciousness from the comfort of your couch!
Who else thinks breakfast is the best meal of the day? The folks at Gocha’s Breakfast Bar obviously do, because that’s what’s on the menu all day and man, do they do it well. Expect brunch Southern favorites like fish and grits, chicken and waffles, and a lump crab skillet. Pair your dish from one of their ample selection of mimosas. Find them off of Cascade Road!
For fluffy buttermilk pancakes and brioche French toast in the heart of Hapeville, try Lickety Split Southern Kitchen & Bar. It’s soul food, comfort food–everything that’s good! Diners love the salmon cakes and creamy grits. Lickety Split has unfortunately temporarily suspended their brunch operations until December 2020, but add them to your brunch bucket lists and visit them for lunch or dinner in the meantime!

There’s tons of savory seafood options and gullah geechee flavors on the menu at Virgil’s Gullah Kitchen for brunch! Get their slammin’ salmon over grits or try their jam up wingz and red velvet waffle. The cocktails are strong, and you can even CBD oil to yours for an extra hit of relaxation. Their bussin corn muffins will change your life!
Our friend “The Real Atlanta Housewives” star Kandi Burruss-Tucker opened up this venture in the East Point/Castleberry/State Farm Arena area. Old Lady Gang has an excellent patio, bar offerings, and good-old fashioned Southern food made from Kandi’s family’s recipes.
