Having had such a wonderful brunch on March 3rd, I was back the following Sunday to sample more of Chef Tiffany’s inventive menu. This time, I brought my nephew Mark who was visiting Georgia for the first time. Like me, Mark is a Yankee from Connecticut and wanted to sample some good Southern food. We agreed that Café 458 was the right place for it.
First, I must congratulate the volunteer wait staff from Emory University. They all were so pleasant and were obviously enjoying themselves. Our server, Joy, lived up to her name.
Mark was over the moon about his shrimp and grits entrée and it did look and smell delicious. The recipe, from Chef Tiffany’s Grandma Mary, calls for Gouda cheese in the grits and it added just the right touch. The grits were smooth and cooked to perfection. I decided to try an omelet and it was beautifully prepared. The vegetables were fresh and it was all completely yummy!
Friends stopped by to meet Mark, including Anthony, Dana and Eric. Everyone knows your name at Café 458!
Café 458 is part of Atlanta Center for Self-Sufficiency and all proceeds, including tips, support programs that support our mission to end homelessness.
Serving at Sunday brunches is a great way to enhance the fellowship of church groups, to build teams at work and to experience outreach in our own community. To volunteer, contact Alison Smith: Alison.Smith@atlantacss.org.
