Although this Winter has been a particularly warm one, there is no better feeling than Springtime in Athens. The Classic City starts to hustle and bustle, as people start spending their afternoons and evenings walking around to enjoy the weather.
We’ve rounded up the best places to go sit and enjoy springtime in Athens while getting a delicious bite to eat.
Big City’s huge outdoor patio is the #1 spot to rest and dine in the afternoon or evening. The plus side about going once the sun goes down? The twinkly lights above that makes the atmosphere even more enjoyable than it already is! So romantic and vibe-y.
Marti’s at Midday is the perfect lunch spot in Athens. Located in Normaltown, Marti’s sunroom and patio will make your chicken salad and pita chips taste even more enjoyable (which is hard to do, its so good). Don’t let the brightness of the afternoon sun scare you away, there is plenty of bright and colorful umbrellas to keep you cool!
Seabear Oyster Bar has quickly become a favorite of my friend group’s. Every week, we can’t wait to snag a table on the outside patio. Dining al fresco at Seabear with a spread full of delicious food and wine is the perfect combo.
Something unique about Marker 7 is that it was built in an old Athens party house, which was restored by owner Chris Lloyd and later awarded by the Historic Preservation Society. When you sit on the porch outside, you feel like your at home enjoying a meal with all your friends and family. The porch looks out over Five Points and is a wonderful place to dine any night of the week.
