Star Provisions

Copy Link

Anne Quatrano’s empire culminates in this bustling farm-to-table shop, where browsers pick up everything from fresh Summerland Farm produce to pricey cutting boards. Venture into the coffee shop for a visit with Enrico Leone, the Italian personality behind the steaming cups. He'll whip up a cup of caffeine and a dossant, a cronut knock-off, for a trendy start.

Ormsby's

Copy Link

Stroll over the Westside Provisions District bridge with blinders on to avoid the scent of waffle cones from Jeni’s and angry mussels from JCT. Kitchen. Ormsby’s lies just over the bridge and below the staircase; duck out of the hot sun and into the cool bar for a game of bocce ball or shuffle board, and just a taste of their massive beer list.

Perrine's Wine Shop

Copy Link

The chalkboard outside Perrine’s Wine Shop boasts weekly tastings for a measly $25, but stop in during off-peak hours to chat with the storefront’s amicable staff about the varietals and vineyards on the shelves. Oenophobic need not fear; the wines are meticulously chosen and priced from $10 and up, and there’s not a bad one in the bunch to take home.

West Egg Cafe

Copy Link

The weekend wait at West Egg is enough to turn anybody off, but a little patience or a perfectly timed visit garners large plates of thoughtfully crafted cuisine. This team knows breakfast and dessert well, judging by the revolving cakes, cupcakes, and cookies at the coffee bar. Visit on Wednesdays during their burger and beer nights for a pimento cheese, bacon, and tomato jam dream.

Northside Tavern

Copy Link

Northside Tavern is an historic haven that anchors the Westside’s nightlife scene. On any given night, patrons throw back PBR cans to the tune of blues, bluegrass, and real rock ’n’ roll. Don’t let the rusty exterior and old marquee throw you, this dive bar is still very much alive and kicking, and the weekly lineup is as rich in history as the building itself.

Vintage Frozen Custard

Copy Link

For a tasty frozen treat without a wait, walk up to Vintage Frozen Custard for creative combinations like the blueberry cobbler, a mix of vanilla frozen custard, blueberry compote, and homemade shortbread cookie. The s’mores everydae is another summer crowd pleaser, with vanilla custard, dark chocolate flakes, marshmallow cream, graham cracker crumble, whipped cream and, of course, a cherry on top.

Bocado’s burger stack is a top contender for Atlanta’s best burger, but remember to always pony up the extra couple bucks for a side of herb fries. Been there, done that? Bocado’s list of sandwiches, salads, small plates, and entrees makes for some difficult choices, but it’s hard to go wrong in the airy space so dedicated to fresh and and beautiful ingredients.

Octane Coffee

Copy Link

Experience the original location of Octane Coffee on the corner of Marietta Street where it’s sandwiched between The Optimist and Five Seasons. Carb load with Holeman & Finch breads and Sublime Doughnuts; choose from the simple coffee list or ask what’s on tap behind the bar. Find a seat among Georgia Tech students and local artists and relax to the hum of the espresso machine.

Bartaco

Copy Link

Bartaco may be a new kid on the block in Atlanta, but this Connecticut-based chain is a California-style oasis in an industrial neighborhood. Choose a low seat on the shaded patio and enjoy a dining experience that shakes things up a bit. Sesame rib eye shines on the menu organized by “tacos” and “not tacos,” while the team behind the bar mixes sail-away worthy cocktails.

Delia's Chicken Sausage Stand

Copy Link

Delia’s Chicken Sausage Stand has embraced and anchored the neighborhood on the corner of Northside Drive and Marietta Street. With slingers, sausages on hoagie rolls, sliders, and sausage patties on soft buns, Delia’s does it up right. Top off any meal with a cake shake and bask in a blend of any cupcake with Madagascar vanilla, 2 percent milk, and inverted sugar. Then take some time to walk it off.
