I had a chance to pay another visit to Southern Sweets Bakery. It's tucked away in an industrial park near the Dekalb Farmer's Market, but the location hasn't stopped it from becoming a local favorite. The big sign on Ponce De Leon will help you find it, by the way.
When I saw their chocolate pecan pie, I knew I had to try it. It is rich in every sense: filled tall with pecans, a deliciously sweet filling, plenty of chocolate (including that drizzle on the top), and a superb crust. What a way to start the day.
