Atlanta: West Egg Cafe and Georgia Aquarium

For my only full day in Atlanta we needed to have a good start with a good breakfast. 

My friend lives around the corner from West Egg Cafe and recommended it.  

It's a cute place and it was busy. Thankfully we didn't have to wait too long, and I decided quick on what to eat. 

I built my own biscuit with turkey sausage, cheddar cheese, scrambled egg with a side of gravy. 

My friend got the black bean cakes and egg. 

I couldn't get over the delicious food and the polite staff. Our waitress was so helpful and that always makes for an enjoyable visit. 

After our breakfast we went to the Georgia Aquarium, which was not very far from the restaurant.

It was Sea Otter Awareness week so they had brightly colored treats to celebrate. (How cute are they?!)

That morning was so much fun with a fantastic breakfast and then a great adventure at the aquarium.

Atlanta: Mary Mac's Tearoom

My best friend lives in Atlanta, Georgia and I couldn't wait any longer to visit her. I went out for a couple days and I demanded good Southern food. 

Our first stop was at Mary Mac's Tea Room, which has been operating since 1945.

Make sure to mention if it's your first visit! You'll get a complimentary cup of Pot Likker (the juice from cooked collard greens)...and it's delicious!

I wanted to eat as much Southern food as I could during my trip. I decided on the chicken & dumplings, a baked potato, and macaroni & cheese. 

The chicken & dumplings was some of the best that I have ever had!

My friend got the fried green tomatoes, Hoppin' John, spiced apples, and cheese grits. 

Mary Mac's gave me the best beginning to such a fun weekend, and I will be telling everyone about it!
