West Midtown Atlanta’s Juniper Cafe takes a modern approach to pan Asian food in a modern Vietnamese Cafe and Bakery. Chef Ron Hsu is a James Beard semifinalist and uses his expertise in Classical French cuisine and combines it with his Chinese roots to create incredible Vietnamese food, which is the perfect intersection between French and Chinese culture. The bakery makes delicious, fresh breakfast pastries every day, along with brioche bread, sourdough and more. The shaved ice is a particularly unique treat – it’s a play on a Kakigōri, or a Japanese shaved ice dessert, made with coconut milk infused shaved ice, fruit, condensed milk and mango coulis. Juniper Cafe is brimming with creativity – from their fried chicken with Vietnamese flavors and classic Southern buttermilk brine, to their bottled-in-house Non alcoholic sodas. Visit Chef Ron and his crew to experience an elevated approach to Vietnamese and Asian food today.
