Marietta: Jerusalem Bakery

Grant and Marie invited me to join them for dinner at Jerusalem Bakery. It's in the same mall as Tasty China but on the lower level. The restaurant is connected to the bakery proper.

Grant and Marie invited me to join them for dinner at Jerusalem Bakery. It's located in the shopping center that hosts Tasty China but is located on the lower level. They have a bakery chock full of sweet and savory baked goods as well as a restaurant.

I tried the cheese pie and baba ganoush. The cheese pie looks like a small pizza but is made on their soft, pillowy bread. The baba ganoush was the hit of my meal. The eggplant mixes with olive oil and other wonderful flavorings to give a much richer, more complex dish that I have been used to. I clearly have to up my standards in this department.

Eating Around Georgia Tech: Le Petit Cafe AKA Coffee Snob

Coffee Snob, or Le Petit Cafe, is located in the IBB Building in Georgia Tech's bio quad. They are very well known for their hand-pulled coffees. They also have an excellent selection of foods for breakfast and lunch. They have both light, vegetarian options as well as heartier fare. Many of their dishes have wonderful spices that give great flavor without being too intrusive for more sensitive palates.

My usual drug of choice is the veggie pat tie; they also have meat versions available. The filling has an excellent curry flavor. The size of the patty is just right for a quick snack.

This little ditty gave me a morning boost the other day. That's a banana topping on top of nice, pillowy bread.

Today for lunch, I tried the veggie burrito. Its combination of great savory spices with creamy avocado was a wonderful combination.
