Souper Jenny owner to open new restaurant file photo file photo

According to a press release from her publicist, Jennifer Levison, owner of the ever-popular Souper Jenny, is opening a new restaurant concept in town next month. The new restaurant, Café Jonah and the Magical Attic, will offer coffee service, breakfast and lunch as well as prepared to-go items including dinner entrees.  See the excerpt from the press release below for additional details:

The new concept takes Levison’s desire to provide an old-fashioned outlet for busy Atlantans to take time for themselves, restore and find inspiration – core elements at Souper Jenny where she shares daily inspirations, accepts only cash and limits cell phone use – to a new level. Café Jonah and the Magical Attic – which is named after her 7-year-old son, Jonah – will be a blend of neighborhood coffee house, café and mini spiritual retreat.

“Café Jonah and the Magical Attic really combines everything I love in life,” says owner Jennifer Levison. “It’s inspired by how I live and places I’ve visited, particularly old-fashioned European cafés. Guests will enjoy a slow pace to connect or spend time alone with a meal or cup of tea in the café. Upstairs, we’ll offer inspirational books, candles, aromatherapy oils and even periodic classes and events.”

The Café’s menu will reflect Levison’s emphasis on fresh, local and organic ingredients. Breakfast offerings will include: two frittatas daily, a breakfast sandwich of the day, artisan pastries and bakery goods and a design your own fruit salad with toppings like yogurt and granola. The lunch menu will feature a daily market plate with three salads and homemade crackers, three signature sandwiches, a quiche of the day and a wide array of homemade sweets.

Levison will showcase products from many of her favorite suppliers. From Holeman & Finch breads and pastries to Cake Hag desserts to handmade teas and local eggs, most items featured on the menu and on the shelves will have a local connection. Coffee and espresso service will include brewed and French Press Batdorf & Bronson coffee. A daily selection of gluten free breads and baked goods will come from Sally’s Bakery.

3119 Paces Ferry Place, Atlanta. 7:30 a.m. -4 p.m. Tuesdays-Fridays, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays-Sundays. Website and phone number available soon.

Will Souper Jenny continue to operate as usual? And did they ever find a new location after losing their lease?

I read it as Jenny is opening a “second” restaurant in addition to Souper Jenny…not a replacement? Sure hope that her delicious soups will ALSO be offered at Cafe Jonah…at least one or two soup selections. It sounds like a great concept so best of luck Jenny! Maybe you can also talk Holeman and Finch into letting you sell their 10:00 pm burger too at Cafe Jonah…if they will give up the secret recipe! :)

Why not specify location – it’s side-street off W. Paces Ferry by Whole Foods. And it’s not replacement, it’s addition. Although I wish the orig, restaurant would expand; it’s hard to find seating during lunch hrs.
