Best Spots in Atlanta (2017)

2017! What an absolutely insane year blog-wise! The other day my best friend texted me and said “Emily you’re almost at 10K followers!” which was just the coolest and weirdest thing to me. I’m so incredibly lucky to have all of you to share this passion about Atlanta with and I love when people tell me they enjoyed a spot that I mentioned!  Since I’ve never done an official guide to the city, I wanted to do some sort of year-end recap of some of my favorite spots in the city to share with you all! Thank you all for an incredible 2017 and I can’t wait to see what happens in 2018! Below are my favorites by category:



Casual Restaurant: Cypress Pint & Plate (I’ve never had a bad meal here and highly recommend the sweet potato nachos and donut burger ❤ ) (Pictured above)

Upscale Restaurant: Le Bibloquet (cajun chicken and the mussel frites are so good!!)

Bakery: Amelie’s (baguette sandwiches, pastries, & croissants are bomb- also get a latte!)

Brunch: Flying Biscuit (my go-to is the Southern Style Biscuit Benedict- it’s topped with pimento cheese, two poached eggs, turkey bacon, & hollandaise sauce!)

Late Night Menu: Marcel ($$$$ restaurant w/ a $12 & under late night menu! Get the steak frites!)

Indian Food: Tabla (they have goat cheese naan here!!)
