I love stalking fellow food bloggers and Atlanta restaurants on Instagram to find my favorite new spots – I recently stumbled across South Main Kitchen in Alpharetta though some of my Insta-research!
This past weekend I visited South Main Kitchen for brunch, and was so blown away that I couldn’t wait to share this spot with all of my ITP followers!
South Main Kitchen is located in the heart of historic downtown Alpharetta, surrounded by local shops and restaurants and adjacent to City Hall. The downtown is charming in a chic-suburban way that many ITP neighborhoods fail to capture – it’s the ideal setting for a leisurely Sunday afternoon brunch.
The first thing I noticed about South Main Kitchen is that it’s flanked by a rear covered patio, a rooftop deck, and a lounge area with bench seating and umbrellas. With plenty of outdoor seating options, this is the perfect place to enjoy an al fresco meal no matter the time of year.
If you prefer to sit inside (also a great choice!) you’ll be greeted by a rustic interior with tons of brick, exposed beams, and wood details. This restaurant is an Instagrammer’s dream.
The Sunday brunch menu at South Main Kitchen is widely varied with food to satisfy every palette – it definitely skews toward savory, featuring favorites like the southern omelet with candied bacon and jalapeno, creamy mushroom crepes, or the legendary brussel sprouts with bacon and feta.
I had the pleasure of enjoying these famous brussels paired with a salmon cake benedict – the salmon sat atop a massive buttermilk biscuit, smothered in creamy hollandaise and topped with a runny poached egg.
Even though I was stuffed to the brim, I ate as much as I could and brought the rest of the brussels home for a snack! You won’t leave South Main without a full belly and plenty of pics to share with your #instasquad.
South Main Kitchen also serves up lunch and dinner Monday-Sunday (brunch instead of lunch on Sundays!) and I’m dying to try their brisket pasta and pork osso bucco on my next visit. Who’s down for a repeat trip?! Let me know on Instagram here!
