Village Pizza Co.

The husband and the kids and I had lunch together last week at Village Pizza Co. in the shadow of the Fulton Cotton Mill lofts. The restaurant is a welcome new addition to the row of storefronts on Carroll Street in the Cabbagetown neighborhood.

IMG_8807.jpgParking has sometimes been an issue in this area, but there was ample parking across the street from the restaurant, and we were even able to parallel park on the street right out front of the restaurant. The interior is lit from the front windows, so the farther back in the restaurant you sit, the more cavernous it seems. The front, though, is light and airy, with the nice addition of a couch and coffee table in addition to the usual booths and table and chairs setup, and there is ample seating throughout.

The menu includes, obviously, pizza, but also has a nice selection of salads, calzones, pasta, subs, and panini. Pizzas are available by individual slice or by pie. My son had a slice. The pizza was great and is almost exactly like that served at Grant Central Pizza, which is not surprising as the owner once worked at Grant Central East in East Atlanta. My husband had the Tuscan Chicken panini sandwich. It was fresh and, for future reference, more than enough for two people to split. I had the Greek Salad, with added grilled chicken. It was more than enough to fill me up and the ingredients were very fresh. One drawback: They listed a “soup of the day” on the menu, but when asked, were not serving soup that day.

Nice touches include the display of local artists’ work, comfortable benches out front, and a cute vintage pizza delivery bike. My son enjoyed the blackboard, too. This place is very kid-friendly, with a laid-back atmosphere and clean restrooms. I could also see it being a nice place to drink a few beers with friends in the evening.

Oh, and did I mention my favorite part? I am a sucker for an ice cream cooler. Village Pizza Co. has a deep freezer near the counter, stocked with an assortment of cool treats. Even if you don’t feel up to a slice, it’s nice to be able to drop in, grab an ice cream sandwich or pint of Ben & Jerry’s, and take it to go on your stroll down Carroll Street.

All in all, Village Pizza Co. is a welcome addition to the Cabbagetown neighborhood.

    Is this a press release?
    It sounds like a g-d press release.

    I am more than slightly in love with Village Pizza. Okay… border-line obsession.

    Can you really write Cabbagetown in as the city on a mailing address and expect it to make it to Atlanta?

    Thanksby the way for the wikipedia link to Cabbagetown. I’ve always thought that was the neatest little Atlanta niche.
