For a city so lush with trees, we have few scenic brunch destinations. Canoe, happily, delivers pastoral landscape to spare. In the restaurant’s garden, a circular, uncovered bar sits on the edge of the Chattahoochee River, with a lulling view of the baby-blue bridge beside Paces Ferry Road. The shades of green in the foliage along pebbled walkways look particularly fetching in early spring. After sipping a mimosa on a bench or in an Adirondack chair, you’re ready for a plate of executive chef Carvel Grant Gould’s finessed New American comforts.
ORDER THIS: Pastry basket (includes scones and sticky buns); Crab and Eggs, jumbo lump crabmeat folded into soft scrambled eggs with a side of hash browns.
