Thumbs Up Diner
Relax, it's just eggs is the motto at this favorite local diner. At Thumbs Up Diner, you'll find made-to-order breakfast and lunch diner classics like omelets, pancakes, burgers and fries. A popular favorite is the unique creation, The Heap : seasoned pan-fried potatoes topped with a mound of scrambled eggs, cheese and pretty much anything else you'd like to add. If you're more in the mood for lunch, try a patty melt, black bean burger or a Southwestern specialty like catfish tacos. On the weekends, be prepared to line up with the locals as this is a hot spot for breakfast and brunch. Only cash is accepted, so carry ample change.
I'm from the northern suberbs of ATL (SWF) but a coworker kept raving about the place so I made the drive one SAT morn. My friend lived closer so he went early and got on the waiting list (one hour). It was sooo worth it. Great people, True Soul Food! Great atmosphere. How bout opening another further up north??
OMG!!! Im from Fla and nothing here hits it like Thumbs Up. Best thing smoking. I all my 25 years My grandma, mom and Thumbs Up got da bomb breakfast!!!! the atmosphere is cool and relaxed. It is worth getting up for. Worth the wait and all. Trust you need to try it.
I'm from Los Angeles. My son goes to Morehouse, and every time we are in Atlanta we eat at Thumbs Up!!! I love the cat fish and grits, ice tea/ leamonade
and the people are very nice . The first time we were there was about four years ago. The last time...last month! Now we go to both. On Edgewood and the one on White Ave in East Point...enjoy!
I love the atmosphere at this resturant, small and quaint. The food and the service were excellent!!! My family will be visiting next weekend, and I am definitely taking them to Thumbs Up Cafe in the heart of Atlanta on Edgewood Avenue.
Hands down, the best breakfast in Atlanta! Thumbs Up offers an extensive menu of breakfast items; everything from Caramel Apple French Toast (special) to veggie sausages and Spuds (home fries swimming in onions and peppers). This is the place to stop if you�re craving chicken and waffles or fresh, fluffy waffle-cakes (pancakes made with waffle batter -- it has an interesting texture, and an unquestionably delicious appeal.) In addition to your normal breakfast staples (grits, omelets and biscuits), their menu also caters to the lunch crowd, offering a slightly smaller selection of everything from catfish to Philly steak sandwiches. The only downside to dinning here is the extensive wait you face. Unless you arrive when the doors open or 20 minutes before they close, be prepared to read at least half of your morning paper, or at least 4 or 5 chapters of your favorite book. But I swear, by the time the food is placed in front of you, you�ll eagerly declare it�s definitely worth the wait.
The wait may seem like it's forever (and on a Sunday morning it was) but it was well worth it. The food was plentiful and tasty to boot. For a different take on breakfast try the Yukon Omelette (salmon, spinach, and cream cheese). Individually different coffee mugs give it a homey feel and the servers emphasize that by making you feel like you're in theirs. Definitely a must-go!
Thumbs Up was located in an area of Edgewood that had few residences and was mostly warehouses and (empty) offices. Then the lofts and the residential complexes came. I haven't been out there much since gentrification hit, and I suppose Thumps Up is partly to blame, but still... best grits and biscuits in the city, great service, and a long line of customers on the weekends to prove it!
I was in Atlanta over night on my way to a family reunion on South Carolina and my cousin suggested my family try the Thumbs Up for breakfast on the way out of town. What a cool little cafe. The food was GREAT, the sevice wonderful, and the price was right. My wife and I got out bill and it was a whopping $17 for a filling breakfast. The portions are quite generous. The only thing that I can say negative about the whole place was the parking situation. There is limited parking on the surrounding streets and the adjacent lot is in poor shape. You have to hop a steep curb to get in and out. But this is a small price to pay for such a great meal.
