Pancakes are finally having a moment in Atlanta. Crepes aren't there—yet. Also, we're worried about Virginia-Highland becoming a mediocre dining spot.
Back in the early 2000s, Atlanta had meager options for brunch. Now we have Pancake Social, which slings bougie brunch options such as avocado toast with soft-cooked egg and a Dutch baby pancake with apple and Gruyère—not just at weekend brunch but all day every day.
Drink hundreds of different beers and wines at West End's Boxcar, get an incredible taste of a high-end menu at Ron Hsu's Lazy Betty in Candler Park, and stuff yourself with Anne Quatrano's brunch options at Pancake Social in Ponce City Market.
Pancake Social cofounder Anne Quatrano takes us on a tour of the menu for Ponce City Market's new all-day breakfast spot, where you can order dishes such as puffy Dutch baby pancakes and buckwheat pancakes with chocolate chips and cocoa nibs.
Looking beyond such fanfare as the opening of Tiny Lou’s and the rise of fast-casual everything, what else happened in the food world this year—and what does it say about Atlanta? We received a few snubs on the national stage, which might suggest that our dining scene is faltering. It could also be that we’re currently stewing on our most promising culinary ideas and talent.
Perhaps more than any stretch of pavement in the city, the expanse of Ponce de Leon Avenue between Mary Mac’s Tea Room and the Majestic Diner possesses the historic charm, the culinary creativity, and the total weirdness that makes Atlanta, well, Atlanta. Our ode to Ponce.
Set to open in Ponce City Market in November, Pancake Social will be a community-oriented, all-day breakfast spot offering eight types of pancakes (including sourdough and whole grain), plus other fresh brunch and lunch items.
The second location to ever open, the Houston's on Lenox Road has been an Atlanta institution for 40 years. And while some might think of it as an overpriced chain, many Atlantans are completely devoted to the restaurant—and its spinach and artichoke dip.
