Atwoods Pizza Cafe, Atlanta, GA

Atwoods Pizza Cafe Restaurant Review

: Located on the corner of a classic Atlanta building, this relatively small café nestles into a space created by old brick walls. The pizza kitchen is part of the décor, and tables range from two-tops to high-tops for community dining. Pizza is the main draw; an eight-inch version is available at lunch. We like the chewy crust on these beauties, with their slightly charred, blistered edges. The margherita may be our favorite; certainly it's one of the best of the genre we've ever had. After that, the tartufo is a good choice. The tasty Calabrese comes with the spicy sausage associated with that region of Italy. You may build your own pizza, too, choosing from a variety of toppings. There are sandwiches as well. The arugula-based salad with roasted butternut squash, dried cherries, Gorgonzola and walnuts is something worth a trip to Midtown for its own sake. Breakfast treats include a bread pudding french toast. The place also bakes morning pastries and turns out cookies for dessert. The wine list is short and to the point, with three whites and three reds from around the wine world, and a few beers are available.
