On a normal day, breakfast in Midtown takes many forms. Executives grab something to go. Offices order deliveries to make morning meetings more attractive. Creative conferences take place in cafés. Friends make time before the workday to connect and recharge the interests they share. And on weekends, brunch becomes, for many, the cornerstone of an easy Saturday or Sunday. These cherished customs, part of the pulse of Midtown, had a bit of a recess recently. But people and their favorite cafés found ways to keep breakfast enjoyable. For a while that has called for a little resourcefulness.
Yes, breakfast was mostly happening at home for a while, in the skyrise condos of Midtown and throughout Atlanta. Many of our favorite restaurants kept their customers connected with takeout ordering, and some with delivery. Breakfast is seen by some as too fragile to be portable, though, so thank goodness for the bakery goodies we were still able to order, even during those weeks at home.
Adjusting to Fulfill
Right here in Atlantic Station, the crafted coffee shop, Land of a Thousand Hills, is offering its carefully and conscientiously sourced – and delicious – coffee blends with free delivery of orders $20 or more. Inspired by the take-your-time setting found in the coffee houses of Europe, Café Intermezzo has resumed dine-in service with sensible precautions at its Midtown location, as well as offering curbside pickup and no-contact delivery. You can order their renowned tortes, cakes, and cheesecake online, too.
The “Rockstar Breakfast” selections at MetroFresh, in the Midtown Promenade, come with a personal approach that gives the morning a great start, and their shaded patio is a relaxing place to distance socially. The award-winning Flying Biscuit Café is a place to pick up city-fied smoked salmon or country eggs benedict and just about any breakfast delight you can think of on the way. Speaking of on the way, the Biscuit is known for carry-out and catering, too, so if breakfast has to happen at your place, home, or work, they can more than satisfy.
Old Favorites and Farther Afield
The West Egg Café is open for takeout and delivery, a breakfast favorite for those fortunate to live in the condos within easy reach of the Westside Provisions District. The Egg might have been named for The Great Gatsby’s roaring-20s home ground, but it is pure 21st Century Atlanta.
The Thumbs Up Diner has a West Midtown location on Marietta Street, where people enjoy the option of classic breakfasts, one-skillet dishes, or build-your-own options from their imaginative menu. Home cooking is more than a nostalgic phrase here, as they smoke their own meats and serve their orange juice fresh-squeezed. The grits at Thumbs Up are stone-ground, and their biscuits are distinctively multi-grain.
