Dining in Atlanta’s Historic Inman Park Neighborhood

The definitive dining and drinking guide to historic Inman Park

View as Map

The historic neighborhood of Inman Park on Atlanta’s east side has always been a popular place to live and visit. As the city’s in-town population continues to grow, and with the Eastside Beltline trail continuing its expansion into neighboring Cabbagetown and Reynoldstown, Inman Park has seen a dramatic increase in both residents and restaurants over the last five years.

Inman Park was founded in 1890 and is deemed the city’s first suburb. The neighborhood is full of charming bungalows, gingerbread designed Victorian mansions, and streets lined with century-old trees. The area’s restaurant scene is one of the hottest in Atlanta these days, and includes the bustling Krog Street Market, French cafe Bread & Butterfly, and Italian staple BoccaLupo among its dining options. Every April, the neighborhood throws one of the city’s most popular street festivals and parades, the aptly named Inman Park Festival.

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