Sunny Point Cafe
The lines at this brunch spot are absurd, but Sunny Point’s garden courtyard and picnic tables turn the wait into an event of its own. You should occupy yourself with generously-poured mimosas and baked goods like scones, biscuits, and muffins. By the time you’re seated, we can’t promise you’ll be the same person you were when you arrived, but Southern farm-to-table staples like the fried chicken biscuit, carrot hotcakes, and pecan-crusted fried green tomato sandwich will make you new again.
If you simply aren’t willing to wait, you can also snag coffee and pastries from the new on-site bakery Rabbit Hole. After your meal, check out the shops on Haywood Street, such as Harvest Records, Morgan’s Comics, Flora, and the Local 604 Bottle Shop.
