A change in name, not a change in quality…
Cafe di Sol may be called Cafe 640 now, but thankfully, you’ll still find the same great food and drinks and what is quite possibly one of the best patios for people watching in Atlanta. The view of N. Highland Avenue is a steady stream of joggers, moms pushing babies in strollers, droves of cyclers, and a handsome hipster or two headed to the art gallery next door.
Aside from great people-watching, Cafe 640 has some of the best food around. For weekend brunch try the fried chicken biscuits — an open-faced biscuit topped with a crispy fried chicken breast, smothered in a creamy mushroom tarragon gravy, with two eggs sunny side up. For lunch, try the chicken salad sandwich. This is not just any chicken salad — slightly spicy blackened chicken salad is generously stuffed inside a fluffy croissant and served alongside the house made sweet potato chips. For dinner, the mussels are delightful and the steak with rosemary sauce is just heavenly.
Stop by on a Monday for their buy-one-get-one burger deal. The veggie burger, one of my personal favorites in the city, is flavorful and loaded with gruyere cheese. Visit on a Sunday evening for the live music and crawfish boil, which is guaranteed fun. And don’t even think about leaving until you’ve had the cafe’s signature grapefruit rosewater martini. Not a grapefruit fan? Try the new mango jalapeno martini instead. Great food and drinks on a killer patio — now that’s what I call being outdoorsy.
