At Sun in my Belly, the food is as delicious as the name suggests. They serve breakfast (available all day), lunch and dinner, and they’re a full service catering company too. Sun in my Belly was founded in 1996 by Alison Lueker, who wanted to make her mark by creating a new and unique catering company for Atlanta. She was one of the first chefs in town to take on seasonally fresh, local fare that featured an artful flair. After traveling the world and finishing culinary school in Santa Fe, Alison returned to Atlanta to create the kind of food that fulfilled her passion for beautiful, delectable and decadent cuisine.

5. Highland Bakery

Bakery, American, Pastries, Coffee, Fast Food, Tea , Snacks

The evolution of Highland Bakery began with the dream of owner and founder Stacey, who set up coffee carts all over Atlanta with the aim of teaching locals and visitors about what makes great coffee great. Further inspired by her mother’s cooking, Stacey’s work and determination eventually resulted in the opening of Highland Bakery, where Stacey and her team continue to serve great coffee and a variety of baked goods and pastries, as well as breakfast meals like crabcake Benedict and ricotta pancakes.

Dish Dive

Dish Dive is open seven days a week, but Sundays are their most important days because with Sunday comes Sunday brunch (10am-2pm). Sunday means unbeatable meals like braised pork belly, melon salad and green goddess tagliatelle. Dish Dive is a new restaurant owned and operated by Chef Travis Carroll and Jeff Myers. They have a 16 seat dining room, and 16 additional seats on the patio. Dine here because they start everyday at the market buying fresh food. Their goal is to sell out, so join them before the long line begins.
