Atlanta AM: Breakfast Spots

Saturday, January 23, 2010

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Come the week-ends, my husband & I enjoy preparing some sort of delicious scramble, reading the paper leisurely, while also listening to NPR - Car Talk, Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me, and the Splendid Table. That said, I am very choosy when it comes to going out for breakfast.

We met up this morning with some of his co-worker's at Murphy's, a long established cafe in the heart of the Virginia-Highland neighborhood. I am not kidding when I say that it has been 10 years since my last visit, so I was pleasantly surprised to find Murphy's still running like a well oiled machine. The interior had been rearranged a little bit to house a wine shop area and great bar seating for those who just want to grab a quick bite. The staff & service were courteous and timely. The menu offered a nice selection of poached egg dishes, frittatas, pancakes, etc... also adding a few lunch items, but not overwhelming with too many options. Everything was tasty, fresh, and the portions were just right.

Murphy's is the perfect spot to enjoy brunch and then stroll & shop on North Highland Avenue. A word to the wise, on beautiful weather mornings, everyone seems to head to this cafe. Bring a paper and be prepared for a possible wait, they do not take reservations. For more info

I can't end this post without recommending my 2 other favorite breakfast spots. First up, when in the Inman Park neighborhood of town, a must try is Highland Bakery. The pastries, muffins, & breads are amazing and the breakfast/lunch choices are so savory! Keep in mind, this is another spot that can be jammed on the week-ends, but worth getting there.

Second favorite, Rise and Dine. The quintessential breakfast spot, located in my neck of the woods, the Druid Hills/Emory University neighborhood. They serve Counter Culture coffee & cappuccinos, wonderful fresh made biscuits, and tasty classic breakfast choices. For more info
