When it comes to an everyday breakfast place, the EAV can't seem to hang on to a neighborhood favorite.
Candler Park has the ; Reynoldstowm has ; Kirkwood has , and Grant Park has Ria's Bluebird.
But here in East Atlanta, we haven't been as lucky.
First, there was the Good News Café — where My Sister's Room is now.
But the couldn't-be-bothered attitude of a mostly surly wait staff, coupled with ho-hum food wasn't a winning recipe for success. So it closed.
Then there was Honey's Kitchen in the storefront on the southwestern corner of Flat Shoals and Glenwood avenues. The food was good but internal squabbling between the eatery's business partners led to its closure.
The most recent hope came by way of the Land Down Under.
Mark Allen and business partner Neville Steel, who come from opened the Australian Bakery Café opened up in 2004 at 463 Flat Shoals.
The pair, who also operate a sister location in Marietta Square, had a pretty long run in East Atlanta.
But after eight years, the East Atlanta spot closed last year when its lease wasn't renewed.
Now, the spot sits empty.
Would it be a good spot for another breakfast place or should something else go there?
What's your vision for this vacancy?
