Candler Park Neighborhood Atlanta Reviews
Great for dog play dates, picnicing, wining & dining, and tooling around Oct 22, 2010
Just when I thought I knew all the cool spots to explore in Central and Eastern Atlanta (I admit to not knowing the North and East very well), I was introduced to another one!
TB 34Chicago23 (http://www.travbuddy.com/34Chicago23) told me about The Flying Biscuit Cafe, a restaurant in Atlanta where he tasted his first grits. http://www.travbuddy.com/Flying-Biscuit-Cafe-v174708
So, I checked it out online and decided to explore one of its restaurants in Candler Park, which is close to Little Five Points, one of my favorite spots. http://www.travbuddy.com/Little-Five-Points-v398067
Little did I know that the neighborhood would have to be added to my list of cool places to explore. I can't wait to go back!
Candler Park is a huge Park on the Western side of the neighborhood, toward Little Five Points. It has a swimming pool, tennis courts, kids playground, many picnic tables, abuts a golf course and is surrounded by beautiful neighborhood bungalows. While I was there, my dogs and I met up with many other friendly four feets and their friends and we all had a great time.
A block down from the Park is where all the action is - one whole block chock full of restaurants and shops. The famous Flying Biscuit is at one corner and true to 34Chicago23's word, it does have the best grits, the most incredible biscuits (mouthwatering!) and really good signature chicken sausage. Yum!!
Across the street is another famous Atlanta chain restaurant - Fellini's Pizza. http://www.fellinisatlanta.com/fellinis.html I've never been there either, so will have to make another trip (:-)) It has outdoor seating and is across the street from its sister restaurant, La Fonda Latina - in what used to be a gas station. http://www.fellinisatlanta.com/lafonda.html
There were numerous other shops, including a salon, a market, an art gallery and framing store, and a clothing store. I didn't shop, but this neighborhood looked like it was very reasonably priced - similar to Little Five Points.
The neighborhood takes great pride in its character and many of the houses and shops sport banners with the neighborhood logo. Wish I'd seen this on my house hunting trip to ATL!!
