At Sun in my Belly, the food is as delicious as its name suggests. They serve all-day breakfast and they also do lunch and dinner.

She was one of the first chefs in town to attach importance to the use of seasonal and fresh local fare. After traveling the world and finishing culinary school in Santa Fe, Alison returned to Atlanta and created Sun in my Belly, inspired by her passion for beautiful, delectable and decadent dishes.

Highland Bakery

Highland Bakery began with owner Stacey setting up some coffee carts around the city and teaching others to change their morning ritual from asking for ‘coffee, please’ to asking for a ‘double tall skinny half caff bald latte, please.’ Since people can’t run on coffee alone, Stacey thought of introducing muffins, breads, and her mother’s cooking. All of this combined became Highland Bakery, and today you’ll find a variety of baked goods, pastries and breakfast meals like crabcake Benedict and ricotta pancakes.
