This past Saturday husband and I spent the morning in Decatur, one of our favorite Atlanta neighborhoods. We ate at Rise-n-Dine in Emory Village, a vintage-inspired diner with a heart for quality food and delicious recipes. The restaurant features organic, fair-trade knock your socks off fantastic coffee, which pairs perfectly with a Spanish omelet, stone ground grits with quinoa and sage, or scrambled free-range eggs and homemade chicken sausage. We also sampled the homemade apple butter, which was sweet and spicy and the perfect compliment to the rich, bitter coffee.
One of my favorite things about Rise-n-Dine is the decor. Mason jars and glass bottles are filled with billy buttons and mums, tables are lined with vintage linens, Santas and garlands are displayed on cake stands and flour scales, and mismatched frameless mirrors line the walls. If I owned a restaurant, it would look a lot like this.
After our bellies were full we took Max the Mini Cooper on his last jaunt and headed to the Subaru dealership... where I bought a new Impreza Sport! (I needed a new car, lots of miles, things breaking, needed something family-friendly with more room.... etc.)
