After a strenuous Saturday a.m. workout at the gym, Corey and I were ravenous and in search of a new brunch spot to try. A quick Google search led us to Stone Soup Kitchen, a small restaurant in Grant Park.
When we arrived, we noticed that although the parking lot was fairly open, the inside of the restaurant was chocked full of patrons — likely of people who lived nearby. We chose to sit in the fully covered patio area and were surrounded by plants, all apparently locally grown. Not only that, the plates, bowls, grits, chicken, greens, cheeses, honey and chicken sausage are also all from Georgia. Impressive. The menu had an assortment of breakfast and lunch meals (they serve breakfast all day!), a few of which were also gluten-free and vegan. Awesome– considering that we are on this health kick. 🙂
Once we tried the food, I felt betrayed. How has this gem of a place been under my radar until now? Is this one of those secrets that real Atlantans (the ones who were born in Grady or Northside, went to APS or Fulton County schools, attend church in-town) are keeping from those not indigenous to the city?
Either way, the secret has been revealed. And, now I’m part of the club (and so are you!)…haha!
