Spring has sprung which mean festivals galore in the Atlanta area. If you all have not realized through my blog and social media posts, I love good food and spirits. So when I heard about the Atlanta Brunch Festival, I knew I had to be in the number.
Before purchasing my ticket I found out some of my favorite restaurants and ones I have been dying to try would be in attendance. My inner fat girl was excited.
Atlantic Station was filled with people trying to get a taste of food from some of the best local brunch spots in the city. The number of people there shocked me. Certainly the word was out about the event. I didn’t let the crowd stop me from getting my mimosa, which was my first beverage of the day! It was just right. The festival consisted of food stations and “adult” beverage stations. This was my kind of party.
Let’s cut through the chase. I fought my way to the crowd and stopped by the Buckhead Diner booth. The banana bread French was to die for. Oh but it doesn’t stop there. I also grabbed their shrimp and grits! Yes Lord. It made me want slap my mama, anybody’s mama. As you can tell I was in heaven. After I washed down my food with my delightful mimosa, it was time for a refill. This time I tried the Brunch Punch, which consisted of vodka and strawberry lemonade. I was winning. My friends and I found ourselves getting fried chicken, biscuits and gravy from Atlanta’s Breakfast Club. It was a party in my mouth. I wasn’t done though. I busted through a load of people and came across this pork belly and French toast that melted in my mouth. Baby I had to go back for seconds! I was disappointed that one of the restaurants I have been longing to try, Two Urban Licks, ran out of food before I got there. Rest assured, one monkey don’t stop no show honey. LOL.
I was full all day! The festival offered everything from chicken and waffles, donuts, crêpes, pizza, pancakes, eggs, and breakfast burritos. I could go on and on but I am making myself hungry and salivating at the mouth at the mere thought of the food, so I digress. I would suggest anyone in the Atlanta area to try the brunch festival the next time around. You will not be disappointed.
