In addition to its status as the largest city in Georgia, Atlanta can be considered one of the cultural capitals of the South. Culinary influences include Southern classics and Gulf seafood with nearby Cajun and Creole spice. The city’s brunch hotspots offer the best of its cuisine at a slower, more indulgent pace that reflects Atlanta’s Southern hospitality. From trendy, locavore kitchens to lavish fine dining, ‘The A’ has it all.
Foodies seeking a bucolic environment should venture just outside the city to the peaceful Canoe, situated along the banks of the Chattahoochee River. While the setting is rustic, the cuisine is anything but. Voted into Nation’s Restaurant News Fine Dining Hall of Fame, the restaurant offers modern American dishes, such as the ‘Duck N’ Beef Burger’ served with a sunny side egg, wilted spinach, pickled cabbage, and truffle fries. Executive chef Matthew Basford exhibits his Southern influences with his cheddar grits, shrimp dishes and Southern collards. Guests should also take note of the unique artistic elements of the dining room decor, including Ivan Bailey’s hand-forged iron vines and Dwayne Thompson’s furniture art.

Serving brunch on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and even Monday night, Rosebud is an ideal venue for brunch on a long weekend. The Morningside establishment is close to the Virginia-Highlands neighbourhood, and its intimate dining room provides a warm, cosy atmosphere. Chef Ron Eyester has concocted a stuffed pancake, among more traditional fare, that can be perfectly paired with one of the house cocktails featuring fun names like the ‘orange thing’ and the ‘AT&T’. Rosebud’s tongue in cheek humour adds to the casual atmosphere, but the food is serious cuisine. Stuffed pancakes aside, varieties of omelettes and eggs benedict as well as the brunch ‘surf and turf’ provide ample evidence that Rosebud is serious about flavor.
