A second Brunch and Breakfast Atlanta Breakfast Club restaurant location opens at Atlantic Station in downtown Atlanta
Osiris Ballard and Chef Anthony Sanders are riding high with their burgeoning brunch restaurant empire in Atlanta. The couple will open another location of their popular downtown Atlanta Breakfast Club restaurant at Atlantic Station in Midtown later this summer.
Located just off the resort’s central green space, Atlanta Breakfast Club’s first floor offers the same menu as its downtown counterpart, with the restaurant’s second floor offering an “upscale, casual dining experience” called the Club intended to socialize. Ballard and Sanders say the Club will combine food, music and culture and include a separate “world street food” menu.
Ballard and Sanders first opened the Atlanta Breakfast Club in 2016 along Ivan Allen Jr. Boulevard in downtown Atlanta, serving hearty brunch dishes including chicken and waffles, cookie sandwiches , French toast with peaches and tacos for breakfast.
Then, in 2020, the partners opened an offshoot of the restaurant called ABC Chicken and Waffles inside the Freedom Corner building adjacent to the Madame CJ Walker Museum on Auburn Avenue. The Sweet Auburn restaurant features a nitro coffee bar and a menu centered around its namesake dish.
Last year, Ballard and Sanders bought Kirkwood Le Petit Marché breakfast and brunch in Marchet Spark after closing the longtime restaurant on Hosea L. Williams Drive. Much of Spark’s original menu remains intact, with some fresh additions like a fried lobster tail and a short rib cheeseburger.
Atlanta Breakfast Club joins a number of new restaurants now open or opening at Atlantic Station, including Azotea Cantina, Toscano Ristorante Italiano, SriThai Kitchen and Sushi, and locations of Hobnob Neighborhood Tavern and Southern diner Bantam + Biddy. Rose Bistro and Champagne Bar will open at the Midtown development this spring.
A location for Houston’s popular all-day brunch restaurant, Taste Bar and Kitchen, owned by chef Don Bowie, is set to open on 17th Street near the Atlantic.
