REPORTER: Jené Shaw



If your friends blindfolded you and plopped you into a seat of this quaint café, you would assume you landed somewhere in Paris when you opened your eyes. But au contraire, mon amie, you’re actually brunching in the middle of Atlanta, where the lovely little Bread and Butterfly café resides.

Opened in 2016, this café-bistro in Inman Park is #bucketlist worthy for its transformative ambience that exemplifies the best of Parisian culture. This is brunch French-style, meaning the menu is simple and the flavors are rich. (Here, it’s Petite Déjeuner, meaning “little lunch.”) You won’t find the typical Southern fare of biscuits and gravy with five pounds of bacon, which is part of what makes Bread and Butterfly stand out.

Eat Like the French Do

Start with a cappuccino and a plate full of perfectly flakey pastries and buttery croissants. (Yummmm.) Then move on to one of the traditional French dishes—quiche with mixed greens, steak and eggs or the omelette du jour. Accompany your dish with a crisp champagne cocktail, or opt for one of the wines from France’s most notable wine regions like the Loire Valley and Bordeaux.

If you want a peek at the dishes, just cruise over to the restaurant’s mouthwatering Instagram feed.

Merci Beaucoup

The food is reminiscent of France, of course, and the design really drives home the Parisian feel. With a copper ceiling, green-tiled wall, marble tables and blue and white bistro chairs, the interior is sweet and inviting. An often-instagrammed neon sign on the wall reads “Merci.” And let’s not forget that patio, where we dream of sipping rosé while people watching for hours…

Cooler Than Your Average Suburb

Inman Park was considered Atlanta’s first planned suburb back in the early 1900s, and the Victorian homes, cobblestone streets and tree-lined sidewalks embrace that history. Nowadays the walkable hood is bustling with shopping, bakeries, sidewalk cafés, yoga studios and bars.
