Between Emory students and faculty and the fans from nearby Druid Hills and Decatur, Rise-n-Dine is always packed. Carpool if you can: Parking is a headache in Emory Village any time of day. Settle into a table and immediately ask for a cup of the unusually fine coffee supplied by local roasting company Counter Culture.

ORDER THIS: Lacy sweet potato pancakes; the Pangaea, a multiculti wake-up call of grilled roti, eggs, spiced tomato sauce, feta cheese, kalamata olives, hummus, and a cucumber salad on the side.
