This restaurant is tucked away in the huge Atlanta Farmers Market. Large airy atmosphere with murals on the walls, they offer breakfast and lunch. We've driven down from north Atlanta suburbs twice for the terrific food at lunchtime! They offer meat and two or three or veggie plates. Good country cooking with the freshest possible ingredients. We love fried chicken... More

I had a 7:30 am breakfast meeting here with some friends, and it is a perfect place south of Atlanta. I couldn't believe I've lived in the metro area for years and did not know this place was at the Farmer's Market. I will have to say that some of my friends don't eat pork products at all. Thus, they... More

This is a bit of a surprise because it is situated on the grounds of the Atlanta Farmer's Market and was a little tricky to find until I asked for directions. Then it was right in front of my face! The service was friendly and fast. The menu had plenty of options. I enjoyed the fried shrimp meal - it... More

This restaurant is a delightful find. I have been eating here of an on for the past 15 years. The food is very good, priced just right, and the service is fast. The banana pudding is to die for! It's hard to find, you have to go into the farmers market, but it's worth the visit. While your there, visit... More

Have eaten here many times over the last few years and find the food and service to be very satisfying. If you're looking for good ole home style country cooking then you just dropped in to the right place. Nothing fancy about it but the food is what you're here for. Wish they could get enough crowd to stay open... More

Ordered vegetable platter. It was OK but not as good as it used to be when I ate there 30 years ago. For a farmer's market restaurant, you expect to get good fresh vegetables. The service was very good and friendly.

$10.24 + $2 tip for a meat, two veggies and tea is expensive for a lunch outside Atlanta. The service was great, thus 20% tip. The food is fresh and very good; since this is at the Georgia Farmers' Market, I hope they are getting their share of the $10.24. The atmosphere is good with bright Italian scene murals on... More

We pulled up the restaurant list from Trip Advisor for places handy and on our route through town, and this little gem popped up! Located on the grounds of the Georgia State Farmers Market, it lived up to all our expectations!!! First of all, just two little words. CHICKEN 'N DUMPLINGS (or is that 3 words? hard to tell).
