In a corridor undergoing rapid change, a storefront remains vacant.
The Edgewood Avenue corridor of the Old Fourth Ward has seen quite a resurgence in the last few years. On any given weeknight and on the weekends, college kids, hipsters and old-timers are out and about, sampling the food, drink and ambiance of the many restaurants that have opened up and built a good following of fans.

Why can't the EAV hang on to a breakfast place?
When it comes to an everyday breakfast place, the EAV can't seem to hang on to a neighborhood favorite. Candler Park has the Flying Biscuit Café; Reynoldstowm has Home Grown; Kirkwood has Le Petit Marché, 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.
