Great Places to eat in Metro Atlanta

Blue Rooster Bakery - Metro Atlanta Restaurants

Here is a list of Metro Atlanta restaurants that I have tried recently.  Sometimes I get stuck in a rut and always go to the same spots.  For 2016 I decided that I would make more of an effort to try new places and visit local spots vs chain restaurants.  I have to say that I have not been disappointed yet!

Of course you don’t have to twist my arm to visit a bakery!  I found this absolutely adorable bake shop in Lawrenceville called the Blue Rooster Bake Shop & Eatery.  It is everything you could want in a bakery.  The shop is so beautifully decorated!

I chose the chicken salad sandwich and my daughter had the veggie sandwich.  Both were very good!

Obviously we couldn’t leave without an assortment of pastries.  I had a double chocolate cupcake, the kids tried an assortment of cookies and my husband had a brownie.  All of them were very good!

Last weekend when we had amazingly beautiful weather in Atlanta the kids and I went to the Atlanta Food Truck Park! It was a great casual experience.  It’s nice because each person can choose what they want to eat from different trucks and then all dine together at the picnic tables.  I think the park must be more crowded in the summer but the day we went it was a small crowd.


My daughter had a fabulous grilled cheese sandwich from the Speakcheesy truck.  She had the triple X with soup.  The soup was incredible.


My son and I both had jerk chicken sandwiches from the One Love truck.

Another great place that we found was Rev Coffee Roasters in Smyrna.

    I’ve eaten at the Speakcheesey and agree- it was DELECTABLE. I got the Popeye- cheese, spinach and artichoke. The food truck park was great- and it’s BYOB!- easy on the wallet.
