The Bagel Hole – WIth nearly 20 different bagel flavors available, and nine different schmears, visit to find your perfect bagel / schmear combo. Or for something a little more hearty build your own breakfast bagel. Get a lox, caper, onion or a ham, egg and swiss. They even have Bialy (a savory Polish bread dish) on weekends.  

Peach and Porkchop – Roswell’s Peach and Porkchop menu is a doozy (in a good way). There are endless options to choose from, whether you are dining for breakfast, lunch or brunch. At breakfast waffles, pancakes and biscuits, but a standout is their signature benedict with a house made cajun hollandaise. 

First Watch – If you love the  breakfast all day concept, this is a spot for you. But who says you have to have the yogurt parfait or an egg-centric dish for breakfast or brunch? A healthy and filling Pesto Chicken Power Bowl will keep you satiated for hours. Another reason to love the breakfast spot? You sub egg whites at extra charge and they never add auto gratuity onto your bill no matter how large your party is. 

Hugo’s – If brunch is a big to do for you and your pals, make a special trip to Hugo’s. You can start with Charbroiled oysters or peel and eat shrimp. Brunch standouts are Hugo’s Benedict made with french bread, boudin sausage, cheddar, fried oysters, hash or the Omelette Evangeline with fried shrimp. 

Another Broken EggThere are omelettes, skillets, and benedicts on the brunch menu at Another Broken Egg. Crab cake lovers rejoice: you have TWO crab cake brunch options: Crab cakes Cavallo or the Crab stack. I favor the Crabcakes Cavallo. Served on an English muffin, it is topped with poached eggs and andouille hollandaise sauce. The Crab stack is not too shabby either served atop a grit cake with shrimp and andouille sausage.

Flying Biscuit – A long time favorite is Flying Biscuit, with several locations throughout Atlanta. And the good news is that Flying Biscuit serves breakfast all day. Always get the side of love Two black bean cakes topped with tomatillo salsa, sour cream, feta cheese, and red onion. Dietary restrictions? Not to worry as there are a plethora of vegetarian and gluten free options here too. For those that don’t want to choose between eggs or / carbs (waffle or pancakes) you don’t have to as many of the breakfast specials come with both options. 

Crazy Love Coffee House – As the name suggests, there are many coffee choices, but there are also some terrific and oh so pretty breakfast options at this house turned restaurant in historic Roswell. Waffles are probably the most popular item since they have so many toppings to choose from like Strawberries and Nutella, Maple Bacon and Turtle. Breakfast sandwiches are also tasty. Not to worry, there’s plenty of parking to be found inthe back. 

The Nest – Decisions, decisions. Will you get a Honey lavender latte or Pumpkin Spice, or a Tropical SUnrise smoothie or indulge in Sweet Citrus Mimosa. Croissant sandwiches are filled with a variety of toppings like sausage, bacon, turkey, and even fried chicken. But don’t miss out the signature Lolly Waffles. 

Village Tavern – Centrally located and convenient for a concert at Ameris Amphitheatre (whenever we get back to concerts), VIllage Tavern is a lovely spot for a business lunch or romantic dinner (that fireplace!). But don’t sleep through brunch! Belgian Waffles or French Toast and a myriad of Bennies are delightful. Bonus: they have an entire Gluten Free brunch menu as well. Don’t want eggs? You can still get one of their juicy burgers or a signature meatloaf at brunch too.

Goldberg’s Deli – Northerner’s that have relocated to Atlanta may love the Southern hospitality but miss those fantastic Delis with bagels, smears and Sable fish spread. Goldber’s Deli has got you covered. Their not so secret way of giving northerners a taste of home is that they fly their fish and meats in from New York.

Persian Basket – Located in Johns Creek, Persian Basket is the best spot for Persian food in the Forsyth area. Lamb and fragrant rice dishes compliment the meditative decor. Plus, you can even order food baskets delivered to your home. For Brunch, get goat cheese topped with jam and honey or Falafel. Grab a group and get the Persian Brunch tray (think of it like the Mediterranean version of a charcuterie board). Of course for a more Persian dish, kabobs or stews are available as well.
