Brunch is so underrated. It's my favorite meal because it makes eating a waffle at 1pm totally acceptable. I love breakfast foods like waffles, pancakes, grits, hash browns (hungry yet?), and more! But I'm usually not really hungry when I wake up in the morning, and just have coffee or something light for breakfast.
Last Sunday after church, my friend Kendall and I decided to brunch at one of Atlanta's most classic restaurants, Silver Skillet. It's been open since 1956 and most ATL residents have heard of it, but maybe haven't eaten there.
I've eaten at Silver Skillet 2 or 3 times and their food never disappoints. The staff is friendly and the restaurant has a small, southern, and traditional feel to it. It's always busy on weekends - especially when tourist attractions are in Atlanta.
But the food is definitely worth making the effort to eat breakfast or brunch at Silver Skillet! The restaurant has also been featured in several movies because it has that ideal "southern diner" look.
They have these really fun shirts for sale and lots of other goodies too :)
It's so popular that most celebrities make it a point to stop by for breakfast or brunch when they visit Atlanta. Right by the door, they have photos of all of the famous people who've dined at Silver Skillet. A recent famous visitor was Janelle Monáe - so cool!
