Brunch spots in atlanta

Whether you read it or not, you know that Atlanta loves their breakfast and brunch. The city has cornered the market on serving the meal that combines breakfast and lunch all day, everyday — not just on the weekends. Some people went to brunch the other day and the thought of not having a good brunch day made us sad. Don’t give up, because we’ve found the best brunch spots in Atlanta for you to get your burrito and bottomless mimosa on.

MARKET

Equally beloved by hardcore brunchers and those who claim to hate ritualistic and overpriced weekend meals, Ticonderoga Club is as delightfully weird and deliciously creative on Sunday as it is every other day. What we’re saying is: this is brunch with integrity. Whether you order the best Cobb salad in the city, the best grits bowl in the city (with poached eggs, sausage, and mushrooms), or the best (and not too brunchy) crispy fish sandwich, your meal will be all the more perfect paired with one of Ticonderoga’s special “cups”—sensible punches and boozy classics crafted by one of the most renowned bar staffs in town. Another perk: The dim-yet-friendly bar atmosphere in the back corner of Krog Street Market is a respite for those who aren’t ready to start their day with too much sunlight. 99 Krog Street, 404-458-4534

Though the menu is small at this rooftop restaurant in Ponce City Market, it is still hard to choose. If you’ve got a group of at least four, start with the sticky buns. Served with a coffee glaze, they are a sweet kickoff to brunch. If you fancy more sweetness, get the banana-stuffed French toast. Topped with pecans and berries, it is quite a filling portion. However, for a more hearty and meaty choice, go with the Benedict. What sets it apart is the pretzel bun, which marries well with the poached eggs and spinach. There are lots of specialty brunch cocktails and excellent wines and beers to sip while taking in the splendid city views. (Source: discoveratlanta.com)

LUNCH

Cakes & Ale may be no more, but we still have Billy Allin’s ode to Paris in Inman Park. Bread & Butterfly is an incredibly useful restaurant, one that stays on top of its game during breakfast, lunch, and dinner six days a week—but Sunday is all about brunch. Waits are fairly tolerable, especially considering that this is where you’ll find Atlanta’s best pancakes. They arrive ready-made, drenched in melted butter and hot syrup. If for some reason you’re not here for those, you’ll be no less delighted by a baguette with room-temperature butter and strawberry jam (pair it with a perfect cappuccino), a simple omelet with a side of vinegary salad greens, or the more American avocado toast. 290 Elizabeth Street, 678-515-4536

Folk Art is the sister restaurant to the upscale Wisteria restaurant in Inman Park. Folk Art is a great spot for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or brunch. There are all-day breakfast menu items served such as biscuits with sausage gravy, Benedicts, and chicken and waffles. Specialty cocktails include Mr. Sunshine, a mixture of gin, OJ, lemon juice and ginger syrup; and What’s Up Doc, featuring vodka, carrot juice, apple cider and fresh ginger.
