Supporting small and local is sort of a thing for me, so I find it somewhat horrible that I have yet to mention what is perhaps one of the best bakeries in all of Atlanta (and definitely the best in Morningside) – Alon’s! I’ve been there for many a delicious breakfast pastry in the past (I recommend the cheese danish) and I’ve had several of their cheeses (mmm…) and a whole plethora of their dips (red roasted pepper – so, so good), but I’d never had a sandwich there.

Tonight I had one of the best smoked turkey sandwiches on rye that I have ever had in my life. Not only was the smoked turkey absolutely amazing, but the mustard/mayonnaise (I guess it was a sort of dijonnaise) – oh man – to die for.

So you have to go there. For just about everything they have.

    It’s funny you mention the non-breakfast items. I wanted to swing in there Friday afternoon for a bite, but as always the parking was effed and I got too frustrated with someone doing an Austin Powers in a golf cart manuver and bailed.

    The peppered turkey is my favorite, but the crowds can get nuts. As long as you’re talking about great local businesses, the best movie rental store in the city, Movies Worth Seeing is just across the street.

    While they don’t have 10,000 copies of the latest blockbuster DVD releases (though they generally have a couple), what they DO have is an incredible selection of the BEST movies, shorts and documentaries. The organization of titles is designed for browsing and titles may be organized by genre (new releases, 70’s drama, cult), by director (Robert Altman), or by country (Blockbuster doesn’t have an Israeli film section).

    Their midnight cake is truly the best cake I have ever tasted, ever. The stuff of dreams, I tell you.

    Alon’s sells the world’s best non-meat sandwich:

    “The Tuscany”

    Whole grain bread slathered with creamy goat cheese, sun dried tomatoes, arugula, roasted eggplant

    Unbelievably delicious. You can thank me later.
