If you need a break from the city after a few days, or you’re just a Mark Twain enthusiast who likes to spend time eating and drinking on riverbanks, head out to Canoe. Located just inside the perimeter in Vinings, this indoor/outdoor compound has a great view of the Chattahoochee River from its patio and serves a mix of dishes that should cover just about anything you’re hungry for. For the breakfast fans, go for The Riverside, which comes with bacon, scrambled eggs, hash browns, and a side of french toast. Or if you’re looking for lunch instead, try the Duck N’ Beef burger with truffle fries and find some shade to lay in afterwards.
