Off-Campus Dining: Many of the off-campus dining places are extremely convient. Their restaurant hours are very lengthy and usually remain open at late hours. The foods are very appetizing and the various amounts of nearby dining locations are appealing to whatever a student may desire

Clark Atlanta is surrounded by a few popular restaurants, such as Busy Bee’s Café, which provides a nice home feel and some of the best soul food you have ever tasted. It is often visited by many celebrities, and it can get crowded because the food is really good and fulfilling. They make the best fried chicken, too. There is also Paschal’s Restaurant located not too far from campus. This restaurant offers great food and a classy atmosphere to its customers. Sunday Brunch is the most popular, and they offer a variety of foods that provide a unique and healthier version of a soul food menu.

If you are willing to travel off campus, there are many restaurants you can visit. For instance, Copeland’s Cheesecake Bistro in Atlantic Station offers some of the best seafood pasta. There’s also Shane’s Rib Shack in Edgewood, which has affordable and delicious barbecue. And last but not least, there’s Metro Café located in Atlanta’s popular Peachtree area. Metro Café has a variety of diner foods, great prices, and the best dessert menu in Atlanta. Metro Café is also open 24 hours and serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner all day. You may end up spending a little more than you expected while exploring the city, but you will stumble upon some great eats. Venturing off campus occasionally is recommended if you want to explore the city and the many great restaurants Atlanta has to offer.
