    No one makes a Coca Cola cake better than West Egg Café. Geniusly incorporating soda into the cake and frosting adds an extra layer of unique sweetness and makes it incredibly light and airy. Read more

    The food here is AMAZING. Order the Peachtree Plate and enjoy the best pimento cheese grits in your life. Don't forget to grab the super delish red velvet donuts before leaving either. Sooo Good!

    Westside Pileup - amazing! Had 2 groups of 2 next to me ask me what it was and said "it looks fantastic!" I told them it was "fantasticAL!" Seriously though, it's a huge portion. Good for leftovers!

    It's breakfast. It's southern. It's delicious. A fav when eating w/ friends, but just as lovely to sit on the patio just to read & sip some coffee! The only thing this place needs is more parking!

    Never had a bad meal here. Very busy for brunch. Worth the wait. Love anything with pimento cheese (omelet, grits). The best bacon! Charming atmosphere, great service and affordable.

    Definitely try the southern favorites. Biscuits are always fresh, fluffy and delicious. I love the pimento and bacon omelette or spicy black bean and egg breakfast.

    I don't think I've had anything bad here. It's hard to go wrong. The desserts are amazing! Coffee is better at Octane down the road, but the food and atmosphere is great.

    My fav on the menu is the PB&J Burger: a double patty burger topped w/ pimento cheese, brown sugar bacon, & tomato jam. It's delicious. Get the side salad for bonus points.

    Favorite brunch place in Atlanta. Get there early - no reservations and weekend waits to be expected. Walk around west side shops while you wait!

    The righteous pie is amazing -- it's some type of brown sugar buttermilk custard with an oatmeal crust. I'd also recommend the pig and grits, especially because of the grits.

    Go early because there's almost always a line out the door, especially for weekend brunch. If you only want coffee or a piece of cake, go straight to the counter instead of waiting in line.

    Loved this place. Calm atmosphere and great food. There is something to be said for a resturant that has a wait at 3 o clock on a Sunday. Sooo good!

    Salted caramel latte is great and not too sweet! I also second the fried egg sandwich recommendation. The tomato jam is incredible

    If you like carrot cake, you HAVE to get the carrot oatwich. It's your childhood favorite oatmeal sandwich cookie with an adult twist. Absolutely delicious!!

    Black bean cakes and eggs, hold the sour cream, salad instead of grits = the most delicious gluten-free, dairy-free meal ever.

    The build your own omelette was wonderful. Also, you can substitute the biscuit with another bread if you are counting carbs. I had the English muffin.

    These omelets were cooked to perfection, the ingredients were fresh and the presentation was very good. Melanie said the grits reminded her of the Creamy Dreamy Grits from Flying Biscuit Café. READ FU Read more

    Good brunch and pretty inexpensive. The fried tomato BLT was bomb. Try their cinnamon rolls if you're extra hungry.

    One of the very few places in ATL where you can get an authentic, artisan cappuccino. They use B&B Bohemian Blend. Yum.

    Black bean cakes and eggs is my favorite. Salmon cakes Benedict are a close second. They have the best burger in Atlanta in my opinion. Enjoy!!

    Candy Bacon, and Banana Bread French Toast are definitely overboard, but worth the adventure. You won't finish it in one meal.

    Go for the eggs bene. They may taste a tad bland, but they're so healthy (and the new space is so posh) that you should overlook the minimalist use of spices.
