Westside smoked chicken and fried fish restaurant Annie Mae’s Pantry is closed. Owner Andra Hall announced the closure of her popular Northside Drive restaurant in the Berkeley Heights complex on Instagram Friday morning. Hall, who also owns cupcake shop CamiCakes in Buckhead, Smyrna, Vinings, and Camp Creek and Smyrna ice cream parlor CamiCakes Creamery, is planning to write a cookbook.

Over 200 people commented on the post within an hour of the announcement, lamenting the loss of a restaurant one person called “a beautiful ode to Annie Mae” — Hall’s grandmother, and the inspiration behind the restaurant. A portrait of Annie Mae Norton, a former sharecropper from Jefferson County, Florida east of Tallahassee, is prominently displayed inside the congenial cafe.

While the restaurant is known for its fish and chicken, regulars often came in for the smoked brisket grilled cheese sandwich, red velvet cake, and sweet potato waffles.

Eater Atlanta has reached out for more details.
