The redevelopment of a 60-year-old industrial warehouse complex into what will become Olive and Pine is expected to open this fall in Avondale Estates, and it will include a soft serve ice cream parlor and mini-mart; a pop-up restaurant incubator; a sandwich shop; and a coffee and boba tea house.
Located on Olive Street, just east of East College Avenue, Olive and Pine is a joint venture between Tin Drum Asian Kitchen founder Steven Chan, Decatur-based Office of Design architecture firm, and Metro Green Construction.
In anticipation of the restaurant openings at Olive and Pine later this year, a pop-up brunch hosted by the owners of the upcoming establishments is taking place Sunday, July 24, in the adjacent parking lot to Avondale Estates Farmers Market.
Here’s what’s headed to Olive and Pine this fall.
Leftie Lee’s Bakeshop and Sandwiches
Baker Vivian Lee transforms her Korean baked goods and grazing boards pop-up Foodcation Forever into a bakery and cafe at Olive and Pine, serving breakfast and lunch to include pastries and sandwiches, like mojo roasted pork served with fried yucca and cabbage slaw and a Korean barbecue sandwich with scallion slaw. Brunch takes place on the weekends.
Pop Up by Vivian Lee
Lee is also poised to open Pop Up, a kitchen and event facility for other Atlanta pop-up chefs and food entrepreneurs to host dinners and work on growing their businesses into full-fledge restaurants or to earn extra income.
This soft serve ice cream parlor, mini-mart, and grab-and-go food shop combination is owned and operated by a collective of Atlanta restaurant industry workers.
Wonderful World Coffee and Tea House
Billed as an all-day coffee and tea house, Wonderful World will serve coffee and coffee drinks and boba tea, alongside Leftie Lee’s Bakeshop.
A food hall, cocktail bar, and burger restaurant are also expected to eventually open at Olive and Pine.
Common Roots Farmers Market, a neighborhood grocery with a plant nursery, opens nearby early next year on Covington Highway. Owned by former U.S. Foods territory manager Brock Nix, the market will sell local produce and meats and seafood from Georgia farms, a variety of snacks, pantry provisions, local coffee, and frozen goods from local food producers. A seating area is planned to allow customers to eat grab-and-go sandwiches and other dishes from the deli at the market.
