Yes, we know the pollen has arrived, but if you can stand it, there’s nothing quite like a drink and a bite on these intown patios.
Parish Foods and Goods – Situated right on the BeltLine (literally, right on it), Parish has a couple of outdoor seating areas from which you can enjoy your bloody mary. There’s a side patio you can access from the main dining area as well as a patio adjacent to the market where you can watch the BeltLine walkers and runners go by.
Barcelona Wine Bar – Also right on the BeltLine, this Inman Park tapas and wine bar has fantastic outdoor dining options including a full patio complete with a fireplace and a row of outdoor tables at the front of the restaurant.
Inman Perk – There’s always a crowd at this Inman Park favorite. Grab a cup of Joe and a pastry and enjoy the sunshine.
Zuma Sushi & Saki Bar – Sushi on a covered patio? Yes, please! This is the perfect spot for lunch or dinner with friends and colleagues. Check out the post we wrote a while back about the awesome made-to-order all-you-can-eat lunch option. Pretty much sells itself.
When you’re done with sushi, stroll across the street to Fruttela Frozen Yogurt and grab a table in their outdoor seating area (after you get your fro-yo, that is). In my book, there is literally nothing better than sitting outside with a fro-yo on a beautiful spring day.
Downtown/GA State/MLK Marta Station
Intown Market – Sometimes a cold beer on tap and a sandwich are just what the doctor ordered. If that’s what you need, look no further than Intown Market. You can often smell them grilling from blocks away. Just follow your nose. There are plenty of outdoor tables shaded by umbrellas.
Bada Bing’s (Formerly The Drafting Table) – Buffalo wings, salads, burgers, tacos – you name it, they’ve got it. And it’s darn good. Enjoy a bite with friends out front at this downtown sports bar.
Chow Bing – Healthy, affordable Chinese food AND outdoor seating? Check. Oh, and did we mention the bubble tea? Try. The. Bubble. Tea.
