Thumbs Up Diner Restaurant Review

: As gentrification crawls along Marietta Street near the Georgia Tech campus, restaurants move into the retail spaces beneath loft residences. One of them is a branch of Thumbs Up Diner, offering breakfast throughout the day. You’ll find big fluffy omelets, huge pancakes filled with pecan pieces, apple wood-smoked bacon, flavorful grits and good coffee, even if you order the decaf. In season, you can even get authentic New England maple syrup. Turkey and chicken are smoked in-house. Juices are freshly squeezed; jams are house-made as well. You may have your biscuit multi-grain if so inclined, and have your omelet made with egg whites at no extra charge. Other locations.
