Waffle House

135 Andrew Young International Blvd NW, Atlanta, GA 30303, USA
Phone +1 404-522-9873

If you don't know about Waffle House, you must not be from these parts. This 24-hour restaurants is a late night favorite. While most people stick to the breakfast menu (don't miss the killer hash browns personalized with toppings of your choosing), they do offer non-breakfast items as well. A personal late night favorite? The patty melt (still send that side of hash browns, of course). You'll find Waffle House locations all over the metro area.

Octopus Bar

560 Gresham Ave SE, Atlanta, GA 30316, USA
Phone +1 404-627-9911

Perhaps the polar opposite of Waffle House, Octopus Bar is serving up chef driven eats to East Atlanta - and a steady industry crowd - from 10:30 p.m. - 2:30 a.m. most nights (closed Sundays and Mondays). The small spot, located off of So Ba, serves a rotating menu of fun, but fancy, food. Enjoy small plates like Siberian Sturgeon Caviar with Creme Fraiche, or opt for family style dishes like a 30 oz Cast Iron Pork Chop.
