It seems Riverside neighborhood cafe Jim Adams Farm & Table in northwest Atlanta is closed for now. Owner Chuck Meadows tells Eater Atlanta the kitchen has been “closed for some time” and that he’s “struggled to retain staff” since opening along Bolton Road last year.
Bellwood Coffee remains open in the space and continues to sell coffee, espresso, mochas, and lattes, along with its locally-roasted beans.
Meadows, a former metro Atlanta chamber of commerce vice president and executive director of the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership, opened Jim Adams in February 2018. It includes a small market alongside the cafe selling produce from Jim Adams Farms on University Avenue in Pittsburgh Yards. It’s unclear if the market is still operating or if Meadows hopes to reopen the kitchen in the future. The cafe side of Jim Adams served soups, salads, and sandwiches as well as a popular burger.
During the 2018 Midterm election campaign, Oprah and former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D) made a surprise stop for lunch at the cafe. Oprah and Abrams greeted people during their visit before dining on chicken salad wraps, vegan chili, and avocado toast. Meadows said Oprah also purchased honey from his farm.
Eater Atlanta reached out to confirm the status of the produce market and Meadows’ plans for the kitchen at Jim Adams.
