This isn't your run-of-the-mill strip mall Starbucks. It's tucked off of Ashford Dunwoody right by the Ravinia business park in a rustic little structure that has a mountain lodge feel. There's even a cozy fireplace where you can post up with your laptop and latte to take advantage of the WiFi! I often see people here meeting for business or conducting work. I like to think that lots of important conversations and projects go down within the walls of this caffeinated joint. And the staff is always friendly and professional. On the one occasion that I had slow service for my pour-over blonde roast coffee, I was granted a voucher for a free beverage on my next visit. Bottom line: I love this place not only for it's unique and charming design, but for its reliable and consistent service. And yes, I did indeed use the word "love". 4 stars well deserved.

An intimate and unassuming gem of a venue. I've always heard about the legendary acts that played at the Attic before they got their big breaks. I was pleasantly surprised at the small size of the space. If I had to guesstimate, I'd say there's room for about 40 people. No matter where you sit in the place, you're going to feel like you are right within reach of the stage. It's like you're in a friend's attic (with a full kitchen and bar) just dropping in for a jam session. I'm a sucker for little shows like this where you really feel like you are up close and personal with the artist.The space is old with wooden furnishings, and it's got a hipster-y vibe with some historic charm. You can just feel that this place has seen some true artists over the years. An interesting feature - along the back wall by the entrance to the main room is a random little set of stairs that I guess you could call stadium seating where people can perch and take in the show. My friend and I were pleasantly surprised to find that the Eddie's Attic menu is beyond the stale and bland "bar food" that I'm accustomed to finding at bar venues: a hummus plate, a mahi mahi sandwich, black bean burger... and much more. I was also pleased with their drink list which includes a few quirky cocktails like a special twist on a moscow mule served with Cathead pecan vodka and ginger beer. I would love to come back to Eddie's attic for another tasty meal and intimately awesome show. Chill and lovely and all around very satisfying.

This is THE place to go to for unique, well-made local gifts. I could spend hours here admiring the handmade cards, jewelry, and prints. Young Blood proves that shopping local doesn't have to mean crafty pieces that resemble art projects from the farm. There are so many classy and smile-worthy gifts in this shop that make me so very proud of the local talent that we have in this fine town. On top of offering such amazing treasures, the staff is super friendly and passionate about promoting the skills and creativity of Atlanta artists. I met one of the owners, Jessie White, when I stopped in a few weeks ago. She helped me pick out a super cool going away gift for my friend, and even gave me some great tips about shopping local.

I love the idea of this mountain lodge escape of a bar in the middle of Buckhead, but it's far too cramped and pretentious to break into my list of top Buckhead bars. The few times that I have been there, the line to get upstairs makes for about a 10 minute wait. The view up there is pretty decent, but hard to appreciate through the throngs of people. They have a bunch of TVs around the bars both downstairs and upstairs, so they are well equipped to show all of the hot sports games I wouldn't choose it for my main hang spot, or for my go-to trivia joint, but I don't hate it. I know that I am always in for a crowded bar with some entertainment thrown into the mix. Oh and they get an extra star for having mini solo cups for shots...magical.

Antique store, museum, wonderland... A visit to Paris on Ponce is like a trip to Disney World. You will easily spend hours perusing the different corners of the quirky art exhibit of a shop. The elaborate displays are carefully constructed to catch your eye and suck you in. From Atlanta themed prints created by local artists to stuffed animal heads, you will find a little bit of everything in this place. And then some. I bought an Eiffel Tower shaped wine rack that I ADORE. And most of the pieces are very reasonably priced. There is absolutely no other place like it. In fact, it is on my go-to list when people ask me what to do in Atlanta. Aquarium, World of Coke, Stone Mountain, Paris on Ponce of course!

Meh. Middle of the road sports bar that is pretty on par with the TGIFriday's of the world. The menu is pretty broad, so I can see why it would appeal to families - sandwiches, tacos, salads, pizza. There is really something for everyone. I was particularly excited to try their vegetarian "Gardein" offerings. I ended up with a citrus themed meal (completely by accident). I ordered the Citrus Crush from their menu of light cocktails, and the citrus soy salad with the grilled Gardein "chicken" strips. The cocktails was pretty sweet and lemonny, but tasty. I wouldn't be able to drink more than one of them. I was pleasantly surprised at the texture and seasoned taste of the strips. The salad was a good mix, but nothing special. Our server was polite, but not overly friendly. She had her hands full with her tables of families, so our water refills took a little while. Otherwise she did a good job of getting us in and out in a timely manner. Yard House is decent, but certainly not a must try restaurant in Atlanta. Can't say I'd recommend it or go out of my way to get there when there are so many other great sports bars and restaurants in the city.

Knocked my socks off, wowed my taste buds, and pleased all of my senses. Of course every single plate that came out of the kitchen looked like an exquisite piece of art on the delicate porcelain dishes. The octopus with dainty little lady peas was hands down my favorite tasting of the meal. Perfectly blackened, a little bit chewy, but also crispy and tender and flavorful at the same time. The peas were a subtle and lovely little compliment reminiscent of little lima beans. It accomplished all of the desirable taste sensations in one dish. I am salivating at the thought... The yellowfin tuna was a close second with a perfectly flaky texture, accompanied by a lovely yummy spinach and onion combo. I can undoubtedly say that this was one of the best meals that I have ever eaten in Atlanta - and probably anywhere else. High quality food and service. But of course it comes with a high price tag. Worth it for a special occasion, once in a blue moon amazing meal. After my experience, it is clear to me why this place is considered such a legendary dining establishment in Atlanta.
