Octane Coffee & The Little Tart Bakeshop

The second location for the city’s premiere java slingers and a bakery start-up that first earned loyalists at local farmers markets share a space in the back of Grant Park’s Jane building across from Oakland Cemetery.

Rise-N-Dine

Settle into a table and immediately ask for a cup of the unusually fine coffee supplied by local roasting company Counter Culture.

Bantam and Biddy

Shaun Doty's savvy approach extends to breakfast, when he plies sleepy customers with pork schnitzel and chopped liver on toast straight from the lunch and dinner menus.

Thumbs Up Diner

The flagship Thumbs Up on the Old Fourth Ward’s Edgewood Avenue—a pioneering business when it opened in 2000 along this now-booming restaurant row—attracts the city’s most egalitarian breakfast flock. Whether black or white, in designer jeans or in sweats, customers huddle amiably at the curving counter and in booths surrounded by exposed brick walls.

American Roadhouse

Since 1989 the restaurant has served reassuring scrambles and flapjacks to generations of recent college grads and young families—and to ageless partiers grateful for the bottomless cup of coffee.

The General Muir

The General Muir opened for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in late January, and it’s already (deservedly) crowded in the morning.

The Silver Skillet

Hello, 1950s time warp. The sunny yellow walls, the fluorescent lights, the snug booths, the waitresses who call you “honey”: This is the place to take visitors longing to find some vestige of small-town Southern charm in Atlanta.

Sun in My Belly

This comfortable, meandering space is one reason to visit the community of Kirkwood; it’s easy to grab a seat for a quick early breakfast or a languorous, hours-long brunch.

Home Grown

The restaurant prides itself on using local vegetables (some from its own garden), but you’ll find more evidence of such efforts on the lunch menu; breakfast is mostly a straightforward montage of egg dishes, pancakes, and biscuit sandwiches.

West Egg Cafe

Small details impress: Spiced honey butter served with the waffle delivers a wallop of cinnamon and mellow sweetness, and fried green tomatoes stay crisp even while wrapped in a whole-wheat burrito with scrambled eggs.
