A few weeks ago, my family and I were on a trip to Atlanta, Georgia. After a trip to the World of Coca-Cola we were on the hunt for gelato. Our usual place, Paolo’s Gelato in Virginia Highlands was only open on weekends, and this was a Monday. A super-fast Google search (because we were already in traffic heading to our next stop) popped up with Honeysuckle Gelato. We were on a mission.
I didn’t realize it until we got to the street address that our destination was inside a food hall. We were very excited to find Ponce City Market. Through the course of our time in Atlanta, we ended up back there three times.
Places we tried:
Honeysuckle Gelato – ABSOLUTELY worth the trip
Biltong Bar – amazing jerky and cocktails
Buenos Dias Pupuseria – My Child is now a huge fan of pupusas
Cake Culture – mille crêpe cakes are always a fun experience
Miso Ko – Delicious sashimi and a wonderful spider hand roll
El Super Pan – This one was my absolute favorite. One of THE best Cuban sandwiches I’ve ever had, the hibiscus mojito was super delicious, and the staff was so fun and awesome.
We also stopped into:
Archer Paper Goods – A cute shop full of all your unique stationary needs
Posman Books – I always love visiting indie bookstores
Ponce City Market
Located at the nexus of Atlanta’s most established neighborhoods, Ponce City Market is the latest incarnation of a long legacy of community-centered built environments along this iconic stretch of Ponce de Leon Avenue. The National Trust for Historic Preservation recognizes Ponce City Market as “History in the Making,” and part of a plan “to move Atlanta forward while maintaining and emphasizing the city’s unique history and culture.” From ground-floor retail and restaurants, to the Flats’ amenity-rich residences, to creative office space, to an amusement park on the Roof, Ponce City Market is the culmination of its history. Located in the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood along the Atlanta BeltLine, across from Historic Fourth Ward Park, and walking or pedaling distance from Virginia-Highland, Poncey-Highland, and Midtown, PCM is a hub for residents, neighbors, and visitors to gather, work, and play.
We definitely recommend this if you’re in Atlanta.
