Highland Bakery Restaurant Review

: Highland Bakery is a unique metro area institution. Not only does it make all of its breads from scratch, it grinds the grains for the flour and the corn for the grits on site. Using a stone from Austria, owner Stacey Eames slowly grinds the grains at a low temperature, preserving the nutrients. We recommend the stone-ground grits, perhaps especially on the low country shrimp and grits. Several versions of eggs Benedict include one with fried chicken and a jalapeño cheese sauce on an English muffin. Cakes await under glass-domed stands, and there are imaginative cookies, including one with a certain famous crooner‘s image in white and dark chocolate. But even a simple cup of coffee and a scone is worth the trip. Take home a jar of the grits. A total of nine other locations include the Atlanta Financial Center, Buckhead, 3343 Peachtree Rd. NE, Ste. 130, 678-904-2146; Midtown at 1180 Peachtree St. NE, Ste. C, 404-835-3130; and on the Georgia Tech campus at 224 Uncle Heinie Way, 404-924-6345 (open 4 p.m.).
