A step apart from the usual chain coffeehouse, this traditional establishment is a classic 1950s diner reminiscent of an old soda shop. It features coffee and hearty helpings of food and encourages quiet, casual conversation. Serving breakfast and lunch only, Paris Coffee Shop is known for its desserts and plate lunches. Selections include fried chicken, catfish, and liver and onions. Breakfast selections are just as plentiful and include eggs(any style), bacon and toast.
Decked in bright hues of the sun, Melt Ice Creams is a nice little dessert corner on Rosedale Avenue. Owned and operated by Kari Crowe, the Southside sweet spot serves delicious, homemade ice creams that will have you coming back for more. This is clearly not your run-of-the-mill ice cream franchise, there are less than ten flavors - the focus is more on quality than quantity - and Melt manages that very well indeed. Most popular choices here include Cup of Texas, a coffee flavored one and Sweet Bees, a honey-focused ice cream. Affordable prices, fresh, delightful flavors and the great little shop keeps bringing in the locals by droves at Melt.
If sushi is one’s desire for the evening, then the Piranha Killer Sushi is one of the best possible destinations for them. It combines Japanese with Pan Asian cuisine to create a twisted flavor. The appetizers are a hot favorite with the visitors each one presented in a unique style. The Vegetable Tempura is a distinctive highlight. The spicy conch and octopus salad also need special mention. It is also very renowned for the array of hand rolls and classic rolls that it serves.
This place began as a pancake house in 1962 and has been a local favorite ever since. The location is convenient to Trinity Park as well as other attractions in the Cultural District. The decor is a little worn, yet also homey and pleasant, with wooden paneling and paintings on the wall. At Ol' South Pancake House and Family Restaurant, the menu focuses primarily on different kinds of breakfast: eggs, waffles, omelets and several types of pancakes. There is a different lunch special every day, while the dinner menu features country standards such as meatloaf and chicken-fried steak.
Located within the Modern Art Museum, the cuisine at this cafe is about as 'modern' as it comes. Apple wine-braised brisket accompanied by potato pancakes and roasted garlic pudding, or fettucini with roasted shallots and wild mushrooms in a vidalia onion broth are just two of the possible entrees to select. Cafe Modern taps into Asian cuisine too with their tempura Portobello spring rolls, lightly fried and served with a side of soba noodles and vegetables. The jumbo lump crab cake is exquisite and topped with sun-dried tomato. An intriguing dessert is basil-scented crème brûlée served with pomegranate jelly.
