Athens, Georgia, is home to many restaurants, coffee shops, and places to get a taste of something sweet. We are so excited that these new businesses have decided to join us. Check out what each of these dining experiences have to offer, then stop on by to give them a warm welcome. 

Lindsey's Culinary Market

Lindsey's Culinary Market serves fresh salads, sandwiches, and soups. The bread is always locally sourced, and the recipes are deliciously creative. Lindsey's also offers a special private event space perfect for birthdays and graduations. Athens loves to feel at home, and Lindsey's does just that. With a downtown location (next door to 1000 Faces Coffee on the corner of Thomas St. and E. Dougherty), there is no reason to miss this corner cafe!

Four Fat Cows

Come to Four Fat Cows for some delicious ice cream flavors including Strawberry Balsamic, Blueberry Buttermilk Pie, and Coffee Almond Fudge on a waffle cone, cake cone, or even their special puffle cone. All of their bakery items including cupcakes and brownies are gluten free. They even serve calzones! Athens is so excited to indulge in this cozy atmosphere.  Located off of Baxter Street, it is just a short stroll from UGA campus.

Franklin House Cafe

Inspired by coffee, entrepreneurship, and traveling, Franklin House Cafe brings world class experience to downtown Athens. The scones are locally sourced, the coffee and smoothies are refreshing, and the toasts are simply delicious. Franklin wraps everything Athenians could want into a cafe on the corner of East Broad and North Thomas Street. 



Pair local Athens coffee roasters with a cake from Cakewalk, and you will be in heaven. From strawberry to lemon to red velvet, Cakewalk has flavors for everyone. Add gluten free, organic, and vegan to the mix, and Athenians and visitors alike will find the perfect cake or cupcake for them.  Located on S. Milledge, so grab a bite and take a stroll along the sidewalk-lined sorority row of antebellum homes.   Stop by Cakewalk, your sweet tooth will thank you!
