FROM THE EDITOR – MARCH / APRIL 2019
I’m not one of those people who likes to get up at the crack of dawn. Yes, I’m usually awake and semi coherent by around 7, but it takes me a while to get going. Yet tempt me with a tasty breakfast, and I will shoot out of bed faster than you can say “Flop two and burn the British,” which, for those unfamiliar with diner speak, is code for two fried eggs over easy with a toasted English muffin.
I love all of the foods associated with breakfast so much that I eat them morning, noon and night. And sometimes all three in one day. I don’t discriminate when it comes to sitting down to a stack of fluffy pancakes, flaky biscuits slathered in jam, fresh-from-the-fryer doughnuts or even a simple bowl of fresh fruit. And don’t even think about getting between me and a good breakfast buffet.
If you’re as big a fan of breakfast as I am, then you’ll love this month’s cover story “Rise & Shine,” which is all about the most important meal of the day. In it, Jennifer Bradley Franklin dishes on some of Atlanta’s best brunch spots and shares several area eateries’ most popular morning dishes and cocktails, while Lia Picard introduces you to some interesting a.m. treats from around the world. There’s much more for you to consume on the subject starting on page 28, but that should whet your appetite.
Elsewhere in the issue, H.M. Cauley speaks with WABE radio hostess with the mostest Lois Reitzes (page 18), Juliette Cheatham chats with the co-founder of a kombucha and coffee delivery company (page 24) and Giannina Smith Bedford offers a peek inside a Midtown resident’s modern makeover of a historic century-old home (page 8).

o whip up some eggs and bacon, pour yourself a cup of coffee and have a good read.
