Where do you get a great breakfast in Atlanta?
According to my kids, the best place on the east side of town is Rise-N-Dine cafe in Emory Village. I had only been once before, and I liked the way the menu could be made as healthy or as stick-to-your-ribs filling as the mood warranted.
When I recently found myself having to kill a couple of hours near Emory, I went back and got this plate of food: a “Farm-to-Market” omelette with assorted veggies, cheddar and mozz. From the list of sides I got this roasted sweet potato, which totally hit the spot. I wish more places offered a sweet potato with breakfast. (My kids say the sweet potato pancakes here are also very good.)
The thin omelette was fine, no more. I give it kudos for being yellow through and through rather than brown in spots, but the filling was dull and kind of slipped around the plate. But I recall on my first visit I had a fantastic bowl of homemade granola with yogurt and fruit.
Here’s a little look-see inside:
Have you been? Where else should I go for breakfast? I hear the Red Hen Cafe in Alpharetta is good.
