Deep in the woods of Forsyth county, there lives a stand alone, drive-thru shack.

They have fantastic homemade biscuits, made from scratch on the premises using a generations-old recipe.

Daisy's Drive Thru

It’s way up GA 400. And just like most everything good in these parts (read: bagels), they are only open past noon. Drive thru if you’re in the area. You won’t regret it.

Note: There’s a table with four chairs on the porch that you can use if you choose to eat on the premises.

Red Velvet French Toast

Do I have your attention now? :)

Egg Harbor Cafe

This teeny, tiny slice of heaven on earth packs on over 800 calories. But it’s all so worth it. Coming in at about 4 inches across and a mere one inch thick, it is the most talked about, most adored, most delectable dessert breakfast item at Egg Harbor Cafe. A super moist, not-too-sweet slice of red velvet cake with cream cheese filling that is dipped in French toast batter and then grilled. Delicious is an understatement.

Don’t share. Get one for yourself because, trust me, one slice is never gonna be enough for you.

Go. Now!

What Bagels?

Bagels

So you already know by now. The best bagels in Atlanta are not in Atlanta. They’re in Alpharetta. All of them.  These elusive bagels — because if you live in the city, you must fight traffic, make the 45-minute trek up north and make sure you get there before 2PM OR have a good friend named Chloe aka the bagel fairy who makes deliveries to in town friends — are made the traditional, old-fashioned, New York City way. Hand rolled and kettle boiled.  The result is a shiny, chewy bagel that’s dense and firm yet airy and spongy. These unique bagels (the size of a small child’s head) are hand-rolled (and hand-formed), boiled in a kettle, then baked. The boiling process creates a distinct, moist, sweetish crust absent on mass-produced versions. Not only is the process unique, the appearance is, too. Most have completely no holes!

What used to be Bitchin’ is now Bronx. More family-friendly name, I guess. These bagels were started by a couple, the Siinos, who moved here from New York. Their main baker started his craft at New York City Deli & Bagels which was also in Alpharetta. Many years after, in what would be the ultimate homage to their craft, the Siinos took over the NYC Deli location and transformed it into their second BB’s location which just opened recently.

Essex Bagels

A few miles down the road, another hand-roller/kettle-boiler joint entered the scene about two years ago: Essex Bagels. There has been a lot of denying on Essex’s part but I was told by BB’s baker himself that he makes the dough and hand-rolls them for Essex. I spend a lot of time equally on both places.   Although the appearance and texture are identical, the recipe isn’t exactly the same. BB’s are slightly sweeter.  I like them both.

BB's Bagels and Diner

Every single flavor is fantastic. Chocolate chip and French toast are good enough for dessert. Sun-dried tomato and Veggie both taste like they have tomatoes and veggies in them. The blueberry? Yes, it tastes like blueberries. Salt, Garlic, Pumpernickel, and Everything? Get ready for a sensation of flavors (and scents). Of course, the Plain, Wheat, and Egg are amazing. Their homemade cream cheeses are delicious. Try the scallion, lox, and chocolate chip.

But wait. These bagels on steroids aren’t the only thing good at these places. Breakfasts are, too. Grits are made from scratch, omelets are fluffy, corned beef hash is chunky and tasty, biscuits are flaky. Oh, and let’s not forget about the Taylor ham. A great contender to the Canadian bacon, this pork roll is sliced thin then grilled. Yummy. By the way, try the bagel pizza at Essex. Available only upon request.

Don’t take my word for it. Go for the bagels. And breakfast. Just go.

Double happy: Sun In My Belly

Sun in my belly means happy. Magic. I’m constantly inspired to come here by two of my good friends, the Asian Cajuns, who are doubly happy and who constantly rave about this place. You see, they come here a lot! Mind you, for those uninitiated, it’s quite difficult to find the place. No huge signs. No bells and whistles. Just an old, red J. A. Bailey & Sons Hardware letters on the front. It’s very easy to miss, actually.

SIMB

But what’s not to love? The place is cozy. And hipster. A mish-mash of furniture, old cookbooks on the shelves, comfy couches. Quirky murals. Mason jars. Brown paper table lines. Hipsters. Oh, and the food.

SIMB

You must, must have the Kirkwood. Soft scrambled eggs: not, I repeat, not the overdone, over-dry ones you see elsewhere — kinda like the difference between over-easy and fried eggs. The large, soft, creamy curds make your mouth happy. Infused with herbed boursin cheese. It’s subtly herby and cheesy and eggy. The honey-glazed bacon will rock your socks off. It’s slightly spicy. Sweetish. And addictive. Yeah, you’ve been warned.

SIMB

The Challah French Toast? Wow. Delicious. Gigantic. A thick piece of challah filled with creamy, honeyed ricotta and piled with fresh, brown sugar-glazed berries. And a side of real maple syrup. It was the perfect dessert. It was divine.

Mmm. Happy. Sun in my belly.

Did you know? More love here, here, here, here, and here.

Best thing I ate last week: Empire State South

Empire State South

I was cajoled by my sister to have a very late lunch here. It was 15 minutes til closing when we came in but we made sure (called ahead) and asked again upon arrival if it was still okay to come in. I’ll leave the pedigree details to all the other reviewers here, here, and here. Great pictures from Ironman Jimmy are here. Let me just tell you about the food.

Empire State South

Empire State South

We started with the Pork Rilette. It was creamy yet still had shreds of meat to render enough texture. It was topped with sweet wheatberries and cucumbers. It was so good I could have eaten it straight from the jar.

Empire State South

My sister’s Pan Roasted Carolina Trout was so fresh and clean tasting and the side of collard greens really rocked.

Empire State South

My Grilled Pork Chop was so fantastic I’m still dreaming of it up to now. It was succulent and so perfectly seasoned. It was topped with a small piece of cider-glazed apple to provide a slight sweetness but not too much to take away from the pure flavor of the pork.  As a friend would say, “It’s crazy good.”  The slightly stir-fried radishes in brown butter vinaigrette was an interesting concept on paper but was amazing in the mouth.  Crisp, buttery, earthy.  It works.  The rice-a-roniesque rice (both in taste and texture) with field peas was the only thing that was weak.

Empire State South

My sister also had the chocolate pudding topped with Chantilly cream. She liked it.

Despite having arrived so late, we were never rushed. Lunch (and table service) is until 3PM, we left past 4. Service was so hospitable and the place was so cozy we wanted to stay and hang out the entire afternoon. Actually, they would have let us. Can’t wait to go back.
