    Delicious dishes & execellant service. Definitely a favorite amongst breakfast spots in Atlanta. Also, I'm not sure if the black bean soup is a limited menu item, but if its available, it's great.

    Pick any two - you cannot go wrong! The salads, sandwiches, soups, panini's and flat breads are all fresh and delicious. I recently tried the Bananas Foster Pancakes - OMG!

    For an appetizer, I like pickle chips. No matter what entrée you order, get a kale salad on the side (so good!).

    No matter what you get, you won't be sorry. The food is great. But bring something warm to wear in case they seat you in the cold section.

    Homemade food at its finest. Perfect for those who savor something southern and comforting. It is inexpensive which makes it all that more appealing.

    Not only are the veggies incredible, but if you go on a Sunday, you can get some of Atlanta's best fried chicken. Perfectly crispy & juicy! Yum.

    Get dropped off at the door to put your name on the list - there can be a wait regardless of time of day - including 8a on a Wednesday!

    Ok Cafe’s menu boasts fresh bread, organic meat, fresh eggs, and quality oils. Their portions are also a good size. Go for the mac & cheese and chicken-pot-pie. Read more

    Hearty mac n cheese here! The squash souffle is also quite similar in taste and texture if looking for a "healthier" alternative..

    Veggie burger was amazing. Very surprised at the bean and veggie and grain blend. Wine selection could be enhanced (only red is merlot).

    Ask if they have the home made peach ice cream. If they do, get it! You won't regret it.

    Even when there's a long wait there's almost always immediate seating at the counter. As a bonus you get to watch skilled short-order cooks do their thing.

    Don't get the iced coffee, it's too weak. Do eat the corn muffin, mac and cheese, and pecan pie! Shakes come in 2 vessels.

    Never order the French toast unless you like it deep fried until it resembles a sweet crouton. Was not my idea of French toast...surprised no one noticed I only took one bite of it.
