Bucket Shop Café

While some Buckhead spots might feel stuffy, The Bucket Shop Cafe is not one of them. It feels like an upbeat small-town sports tavern that just so happens to sit across the street from high-end Lenox Mall. One glance at their gigantic patio and the drink menu that boasts seven mule selections and it’s easy to see why this is a happy hour haven for nearby worker bees. Sandwiches, burgers, and appetizers make up the majority of the menu, which ranges from $5–$15—a bargain by Buckhead standards. Regulars are obsessed with the fried Uptown Shrimp tossed in a sweet chili sauce, and we’d agree.
