Waited 30 min in the heat outside without a single glass of water when 4 tables were free inside and once we finally got a table waited 50 min to have 2 egg sandwich et some sausages not even worth it if you have 2 hours to waste on a blend and not really tasty brunch go for it Tables... More

Athens was a fairly new place for us to explore, and we were in no way disappointed when we stopped at Heirloom for a late lunch. Ingredients are locally sourced (with their farm sources listed on the menu) and delicious. The grits were amazing!

My wife and I went here for Sunday brunch and it was excellent. I had the gluten free pancakes and bacon while my wife ordered a cinnamon bun and eggs. We found that out food was fresh and the service was great as well. We took our daughter that is 7 months and she had a blast. We are already... More

With so many great dining choices in Athens it is hard to pick a place; but so glad we chose Heirloom Cafe. Our server kind of pushed me towards the catfish when I told him i was trying to decide between the veggie burger & the catfish - and I am so glad i did. It was mild and moist;... More

We met our student for brunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. The parking lot was full, he was 20 minutes late, and still the staff was gracious and kept the coffee poured! All locally sourced foods, organic, and locally roasted coffee. The French toast was incredible and the yogurt with granola and fruit was a portion large enough for 2. We... More

Given the other reviews online and the name I figured would be a quaint delicious farm-to-table cafe with seasonal menu items. Maybe it is and all three of us, in my family, ordered the wrong things. The atmosphere is cute and boho and the place was packed but it was 85 degrees inside. The food was just ok - rather... More

This has been a favorite of mine in the past, but recently I was there with a large group and it was not a good experience. Service was incredibly slow and there were lots of mistakes with our orders. Maybe it was because we were a large group, or perhaps there was staff member "in training." The vegan brownie was...

We went with a large group and still service was good and the food tasty, plentiful and reasonably priced. I would go back.

It was unseasonably cool and the staff was happy to turn off the overhead fan and turn down the air conditioning. Friendly server, food came promptly. We ordered the regular and the veggie hamburgers, both of which were good. The "side salad for $3" was tasty, but quite small. We arrived at 6:30 p.m. on a Friday, just missing the... More

My husband and I went for brunch on a Sunday. We made a reservation ahead of time as it's always busy. The place was PACKED when we got there but we were seated within 5 minutes. It was a gorgeous day so dining on the patio was a must. The servers were attentive and the food and drinks were delicious.... More
