10BEST Says

Southern, Soul Food: The Busy Bee Cafe is a casual diner serving southern style soul food. But it has reigned supreme as one of the favorite spots for soul food in Atlanta for years. This diner is a favorite of students at the nearby University who pack them full during lunch. Chitlins, ham hocks, meat loaf, and fried whiting are amongst some of the southern favorites on the menu. The staff always remains pleasant even during busy periods. The food and service will more than make up for the long wait. Save room for dessert! Banana pudding, red velvet cake, key lime cake, lemon pound cake are all customer favorites. Don't expect a late diner. The restaurant closes at 7 pm.
