Taken by me this morning. Warm December day with lots of folks happy to be outside.
Oh look, you can almost see on the left where I was parked when I got my first parking violation a couple of weeks ago while eating at the Jimmy John’s on the right. woo~

Majestic Diner, Atlanta, Georgia
by Wendy Darling
This diner, at Briarcliff Plaza, is famous city-wide - 24 hrs. and kind of caught in time. Full of characters, too — plus its share of hipsters.
About Briarcliff Plaza
Located at Ponce de Leon & Highland Avenues, Briarcliff Plaza was Atlanta’s first “suburban” retail center, i.e. parking out front, with idea of people driving in and out. It was built in 1939 and retains its Art Deco bling. There’s a main building with a theater and several retail/restaurant spaces, then another building with a diner and more retail slots. The Plaza Theater is the city’s oldest continuously operating movie theater. The Plaza is also known for the Majestic Diner, which since the 1930s has been serving up “food that pleases.” (I only went there once wasn’t pleased, cult following or no.)
One of my absolute favorite corners of Atlanta. I have a painting in my head from my first visit to The Majestic that I may never be able to put onto paper, but it’s a beaut.
