Grant Park
About the restaurant
Grant Park's Best Kept Secret! A true neighborhood bistro located in Historical Grant Park home to Zoo Atlanta. Historic L.P. Grant Park is located in the southeast quadrant of the city approximately one mile from the gold dome of the state capitol building and six blocks south of I-20. The park is bordered by Boulevard SE on the east, Atlanta Avenue on the south, Cherokee Avenue on the west, Sydney Street on the north and Park Avenue and Berne Street on the northeast. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979, Grant Park is the result of a gift of 100 acres to the City of Atlanta to be used in perpetuity as a public park. Lemuel Pratt Grant, donated the land and immediately began to subdivide and sell lots around the new park. The surrounding residential area grew up around the park and boasts more than 2,200 late 19th-century and early 20th-century homes and commercial structures.

Brooklyn Cafe is my favorite restaurant to dine. It’s always an excellent experience, the staff is fantastic and the food is excellent. I highly recommend this establishment. I do recommend that you arrive at 11:30 when they open for lunch as they get extremely busy and the parking lot gets full fast.

We went for Saturday brunch… The restaurant is small and very intimate. We love that the lighting was a little lower, it made a perfect environment… The staff were very proficient and friendly! The four of us each had something different and each meal was amazingly good! Served hot, well presented and delicious… Chicken & Waffles, Omelette, Pancakes, and flat bread were our meals. The drinks were great too! We will be back!!!

About the restaurant
Sophisticated southern luxury is both that place and feeling you get when people treat you well and serve you properly. Where you can be yourself, feel accepted - relax and enjoy the times with either your long-time neighborhood friends or the person next to you at the bar.

About the restaurant
Since 1997, we've been striving to please our guests, whether they’re looking for old favorites, seasonal creations, small plates or an introduction to new wine. We’ve adapted our style to reflect current food trends as well as the way our guests want to eat. So while there’s a selection for those who want to splurge on entrees such as the signature Ahi Tuna, New Zealand Elk or NY Strip, there are plenty of other options including gluten-free and vegetarian selections along with weekly wine features. Cheers!
