The Sweet Potato Cafe is truly a special place. From husband and wife team, Darrell and Chef Karen Patton, comes one of the most unique and delicious eateries in the ATL. The Pattons make you feel like family and insist that you are a guest and not a customer. That little extra love goes a long way in both the dining room and the kitchen. Boasting both vegetarian and vegan options, there is something for everyone… and then some! Paying homage to the sweet potato, SPC thinks outside the box and offers several variations of the complex carb without sacrificing variety and an impressive menu. Located in the Historic Village of Stone Mountain, this soulful and sweet hidden gem is our go-to spot for post-hike hunger!
Sweet Potato Cafe
Fried Green Tomatoes
In recent years, fried green tomatoes have become a southern staple. However, the FGTs at The Sweet Potato Cafe are the absolute best this side of the Mason-Dixon! Pictured above, the perfectly crisp and sweet tomatoes are served with a black eyed pea relish topped with a roasted red pepper compote that truly takes this dish to the next level. Spicy, sweet, and seasoned to perfection, this is your can’t-miss appetizer!
Pesto Chicken Panini
After a long trek up and down the historic Stone Mountain, nothing sounds better than a refueling and fresh sandwich. A juicy chicken breast served on buttery ciabatta with a layer of melted smoked gouda; this lunchtime staple is the best way to recharge your batteries. The star of the sammie is definitely the homemade pesto which makes for an elevated take on the regular chicken sandwich. This is upscale comfort food at it’s finest!
Perfectly grilled salmon drizzled with a delicate lemon-butter sauce on it’s own sounds delicious, but it is the side dishes and the true marriage of flavors that brings this ever-popular entree to new heights. Available during dinner service, all of the cafe’s entrees are the perfect way to re-energize and relax after your climb. Served with indulgent creamed collard greens and SPC’s namesake, sweet potato soufflé, the grilled salmon has become a dangerous addiction.
