[OPENING ALERT] Local Entrepreneur Opens the Doors (For Takeout) to Her Buckhead Bakery

At a time when so many restaurants, cafes and other eating establishments are closing either temporarily or permanently, at least one has just opened!  Garnet Gal's, located in Lenox Village along Lenox Road, features organic coffee, breakfast, and lunch daily.  The 1,540 square foot shop occupies a space previously home to Mae's Bakery. [Mae's continues to operate, but is currently without a physical retail location.]  Roaster's and Sushi Kiku are among the shop's co-tenants in the shopping center. 

Owner/Operator Pat Azogu has over thirty years of baking experience, and after leaving corporate management and human resources had a dream to open Garnet Gal’s:  

“I wanted to create a space where customers could grab an organic version of their favorite hot or cold beverage and eat delicious foods made with freshly milled organic grains and unrefined sugars.  Whole grains are considered a super food, but packaged flours lose nutrients over time and are often stripped of nutrients during processing.  Our baked goods not only taste great, but have nutritional value.”  
Menu highlights include freshly baked biscuits, assorted muffins, cakes and cookies.  Lunch options include vegetable pot pie with curry, tomato corn cobbler, chickpea sunflower seed salad sandwiches on house made sun-dried tomato/black olive focaccia, and salmon salad sandwiches on house made Parmesan herb focaccia.

The cafe will also feature organic coffee from around the world as well as dairy based and vegan frozen beverages.  Honey whole wheat, cinnamon raisin, and savory bread loaves will also be available. 

For now, the restaurant is operating as takeout only, with plans to add delivery options in the near future.  

Garnet Gal's is open Monday through Friday 7 am to 4 pm and 9 am to 3 pm Saturday and Sunday.

Looking forward to trying your muffins. Not many places in Atlanta have great muffins.

Thanks for a great post
