As the sun comes up on downtown Atlanta, the “Cafe de Olla” is starting to brew at ADios Cafe in Castleberry Hill Arts District. If you venture in to try one the of undeniably best breakfast spots in the area, you will enjoy some south-of-the-border flavors that will keep you coming back. It’s no wonder that City search voted ADios Cafe Best Breakfast in Atlanta.
Discreetly tucked inside of No Mas! Hacienda & Cantina, this virtually undiscovered breakfast treasure has all of the ingredients for becoming one of Atlanta’s most popular day starter locations. Just ponder a minute the rising popularity of Latin fusion with American cuisine and then take a look at the ADios Cafe menu; without a doubt, you will understand why.
The “ADios Breakfast” is the signature egg dish. Huevos how ever you like them served on a bed of freshly cooked “papas rayadas” or as we know them in English, hash browns…but even better. They are prepared with chorizo, made “in casa”. Surround everything with black beans and top it off with fresh tomatillo salsa and you will see why it is the favorite here.

Feel like something a little more tame? Try one of the delicious omelettes on the menu. The “Mexicali” gets its name from the small town just south of the Salton Sea that shares its border with Calexico. A Southern Californian favorite, this tasty combination of fresh avocado & cheddar cheese is perfectly presented with smoked apple wood bacon and a freshly baked biscuit.
The menu is complete with fluffy Blue Corn Hot Cakes that are served with fresh Piloncillo syrup. This of course leads us to the coffee: a special ADios blend, made with beans specially roasted by an organic coffee grower in Jalisco Mexico. The “Cafe de Olla” blends flavors of cinnamon and chocolate sure to comfort on even the coldest days. Mexican hot chocolate with hints of canela. And, for the brave palate, the “Mayan Mocha”: espresso with chocolate and chile de arbol–spicy and delicious!

Best of all is the ambiance of this charming “cafeteria”. It feels like a festive sidewalk coffee shop on a quiet “callejon” in old Mexico. The art in the cafe is by all Mexican artists and changes monthly. After your meal, you will be visually rewarded by a stroll through the adjacent Artisan Market. No Mas! Hacienda, as it is named, is the collection of works by more than 350 artists and artisans in Mexico.
Experience ADios Cafe inside or outside! That’s right, weather permitting, the breakfast pleasures are also served on the large patio. Nothing like the morning sun and a rich cup of coffee to wake up your senses.
The final premium is the ample parking lot. A true wonder for a downtown restaurant–this alone will put you in good spirits! On your way back to your car, take a stroll through Bodega Garden, a fun collection of Mexican pottery housed in creative urban warehouse style “bodegitas”.
