Formerly a long standing institution on W. Ponce de Leon Ave in Decatur (remember the front and back dining rooms?), Thumbs Up Diner relocated to downtown Atlanta on Edgewood Avenue in the Historic Fourth Ward, just three blocks east of Boulevard Ave and adjacent to the Martin Luther King Jr. Historic District. Now almost a decade later with three more locations opened, Thumbs Up continues to set the standards in breakfast and beyond.
Why do people continue to flock to Thumbs Up? Here are a couple of reasons: they feature 100% pure Vermont Maple Syrup; all of their salmon, Italian sausage, turkey and chicken is smoked in-house; all of their orange juice and grapefruit juice is 100% fresh squeezed; their jams, multi-grain buscuits and stone ground grits are all homemade. The omelets are fluffy but with backbone, cooked to order; the heaping slices of French toast will change your view of religion and possibly politics. Lunch is also worthy, whether you opt for eggs and bacon, a stuffed spud or a chopped salad.
