I'm finally back home and now it's time for some good ole southern food! With the celebration of Juneteenth flooding the streets of Atlanta, I figured it was only right to give you a list of my favorite black-owned eateries. Feel free to comment and share some of your favorites below! (No copyrights intended for any photos used in this post)
Busy Bee is the definition of Atlanta Soul Food. You have the collard greens, fried chicken, mac & cheese, cornbread muffins, and sweet sugar-filled Ice-T. For such a small venue, the buzz about this place has spread all around Atlanta. (get it?) Busy Bee was established in 1947 by Lucy Jackson, a self-taught cook who enjoyed feeding people from the community. Now, Busy Bee's restaurant has been graced by many public figures ranging from Mary J. Blige to Barack Obama.

If you're from Atlanta, you most likely LOVE hot wings. Just D's is an all-American wing spot that offers you quality food at a cheap price. I post thier wings on my snapchat 24/7. Duwan Williamson is an alumni from Booker T. Washington, my alma mater, who decided to open a business on the Westside. Every Monday & Tuesday is 25 cent wing day. They also promote safe -sex by giving out free condoms.

From rich Red Velvet Cakes to Chocolate Rasberry Almond Cream cupcakes, Cami Cakes will for sure satisfy your sweet tooth when you visit Atlanta. As a little girl, Andra Hall was inspired by Easy Bake Ovens to start her own pastry shop. Now, with seven locations thriving within Georgia, Cami Cakes has become a household name and a personal favorite. I've never tasted a cupcake so moist and rich in flavor.
Address: 2221 Peachtree Rd NW B, Atlanta, GA 30309
When it comes to milkshakes, My Fair Sweets is definitely bringing everyone in Atlanta to the yard. Kandace Marie got the inspiration to open a milkshake shop when she visited Six Flags and thought that sweets like Funnel Cakes should be available outside the amusement parks. But make no mistake, these are no average milkshakes. From three layer doughnut shakes to Oreo filled creamy goodness My Fair Sweets will for sure leave you SHOOK!
