Due North: Black Walnut Café


ADDED TO THE LIST of Windward Parkway’s dining options is Black Walnut Café. Opened last July, this marks the Texas-based privately owned restaurant concept’s first Georgia location, with plans for more in the works.

With a menu that offers something for every appetite and occasion, Black Walnut Café blends the easygoing efficiency of counter service with the warmth and upscale flavor of fine dining, offering its guests an elevated dining experience that makes the most of their time. The Alpharetta location offers several new regionally inspired dishes such as the Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs, Grits & Grillades and – the one we had to take a bite of ourselves – the Chicken & Waffle Sandwich.

Whether you place a to-go order, get cozy with a seat at the bar or linger over weekend brunch, served until 4 p.m., we think you’ll find quite a few reasons to return. One of our favorites? Black Walnut Café’s commitment to supporting the local community, which they kicked off with a $2,250 donation to The Drake House following their grand opening. With breakfast, lunch and dinner served seven days a week as well as catering and curbside options, there are plenty of chances to discover your own favorites, too. blackwalnutcafe.com
