R. Thomas Deluxe Grill

Menu Status: Vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, organic and raw options available.

Order It: They’re open 24 hours and serve breakfast all day so you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy their amazing menu options. Complete with a separate kids and fresh real juice section. Want an amazing juice treat, trust us– try their Coconut Delight served in a whole coconut. Don’t forget the homemade veggie sausage and French toast, topped with bananas, which will melt in your mouth. Also, their flax chips make a healthy out of the box starter.

Don’t Miss: On your way in, check out the tropical birds who will offer the whole family a friendly greeting. If R is there he may even help you or one of the kiddos use an arm as a perch.  Inside, the décor is arty and eclectic and their covered patio dining area adds to the awesome feel.

Dough Bakery

Order It: Being a full scale vegan bakery and deli, Dough provides yummy fresh baked goods and house made vegan meat and cheeses daily. Be on the lookout for their weekly soup and sandwich special which they post on Tuesdays. If you’re super hungry try the Double Decker for 3 bread slices and extra vegan meat plus toppings. Don’t forget to stop by their grab & go case for hard to find vegan cheeses, taco meat and sausage to cook at home.

Don’t Miss: They serve a hot kid-friendly breakfast every Sunday. Check out the Cinnabiscuit, for a cool twist, you can substitute any breakfast biscuit menu item biscuit for a cinnamon roll. After you eat, take a load off on one of their big comfy chairs.

Dough Bakery


Menu Status: Vegetarian, and vegan options available.

Order It: They offer a full vegetarian, vegan, and kids’ menu with a variety of healthy, yet tempting options. You won’t find any chicken fingers or macaroni and cheese here. We like that the kids’ menu features smaller versions of adult entrees and appetizers, exposing the little ones to new tastes.

Don’t Miss: Their imported handmade pasta from Greece is awesome! And if it’s nice out, request a seat on their amazing patio.

Find Them: 3085 Piedmont Rd., or online www.buckheadrestaurants.com/kyma/


Cafe Sunflower
