Atlanta’s home to many innovative, female restaurateurs, shaping the city’s cuisine scene.
The culinary landscape in Atlanta goes beyond the Southern table staples. Thanks to the bold female chefs and business owners calling the city home, there’s so much innovation, creativity, and delicious menus. There’s also something for everyone with an incredible mix of cuisines on offer.
Atlanta’s home to so many female-owned businesses, so we’re sharing some of our favorites. We’re planning on continuously extending this list so send us your recommendations.
Here are 10 incredible female-owned restaurants in Atlanta:
1. Monkey 68
Where: 1073 Green St, Roswell
This Asian fusion restaurant is located in a beautifully renovated home. The converted cottage in downtown Roswell serves up some delicious Pan-Asian comfort food. Their Bulgogi Cheesetake is to die for, but their sushi is the star of the show.
2. Slutty Vegan
Where: 1542 Ralph David Abernathy Blvd, Westview
We love Slutty Vegan at Secret Atlanta! Their plant-based burger menu will confuse any meat lover. Don’t tell them and they might not even know the difference. If you like their burgers then you’re in luck, Slutty Vegan have just opened a new bar in Ponce City Market.
3. Buttermilk Kitchen
Where: 4225 Roswell Rd NE
The Southern breakfast at Buttermilk Chicken is out of this world. Don’t say we didn’t warn you when their chicken biscuit becomes your new addiction.
4. Anna’s BBQ
Where: 1976 Hosea L Williams Dr NE.
This also made it on our list of Black-owned restaurants in Atlanta. For all things BBQ, head to Anna’s BBQ. But make sure you stop here on an empty stomach, their burgers are OTT in the best way.
5. My Coffee Shop
Where: 2462 Memorial Dr. SE.
A funky coffee spot at Eastlake, My Coffee Shop offers all-day breakfasts alongside sandwiches & baked goods. We recommend their basil lemonade which you can enjoy with your lunch, or purchase by the gallon!
6. Twisted Soul
Where: 1133 Huff Rd. NW.
For innovative twists on Southern classics, check out Twisted Soul Cookhouse. The name speaks for itself, as their menu is soul food at its finest. The menu cocktail is insane with their No Cryin’ At The Pync cocktail adored by visitors. It has two different tequilas, amaretto, thyme, pomegranate, and citrus.
7. (SAMA) Food For Balance
Where: 56 E. Andrews Dr. NW
For a tasty health kick, head to (SAMA) Food For Balance. You can’t leave this vegan paradise without trying one of their falafel bowls. You’re going to want to know the recipe for their mint raita!
8. Bellina Alimentari
Where: 1680 S Lumpkin St, Athens
If you love Italian food then Bellina Alimentari is for you. They have an extensive wine list and the welcoming staff will help you find the perfect accompaniment for your pasta.
9. We Suki Suki
Where: 479-b Flat Shoals Ave SE
This cozy restaurant offers Vietnamese banh mi sandwiches & pho, and it’s great if you’re a vegetarian. Head here on Taco Tuesday for an irresistible deal.
10. Cafe Sunflower
Where: 2140 Peachtree Rd NW
Cafe Sunflower is another great vegan spot in Atlanta. Rise and shine with their plant-based brunch on the weekends. Customers are loving the chicken & wallfles, and their breakfast burrito!
