The historic neighborhood of Inman Park has always been a popular place to live and visit in Atlanta. As the city’s in-town population continues to grow, and with the Eastside Beltline trail now stretching beyond neighboring Cabbagetown and Reynoldstown to the west, Inman Park has seen a dramatic increase in both residents and restaurants over the last decade.

Founded in 1890, Inman Park is recognized as the city’s first suburb. The neighborhood is full of charming bungalows, gingerbread-designed Victorian mansions, and streets lined with century-old trees. The neighborhood’s restaurant scene is one of the hottest in Atlanta these days, and includes the bustling Krog Street Market food hall, French cafe Bread and Butterfly, award-winning tavern Ticonderoga Club, and popular Italian spot BoccaLupo among its dining destinations. Every April, the neighborhood throws one of Atlanta’s most popular street festivals and parades, too, the aptly named Inman Park Festival.

Here are the essential restaurants, bars, and coffee shops to explore in the historic neighborhood of Inman Park.
