Description of Restaurant:

Darling front porch atmosphere with white rocking chairs around the bar; Southern plantation nostalgia abounds throughout, including Southern hospitality.

Downstairs is a large dinning area with well spaced tables.

So, with the Gone With The Wind ambience and a large Mint Julep (which is quite serious here), the story goes that when Scarlett visited Atlanta she always stayed with Aunt Pittypat (hence the restaurant name PITTYPAT'S PORCH), and it's said that Aunt Pittypat served up her best recipes to Ms. Scarlett, and so the tradition continues.

From Specialty Drinks Moonshiner's Punch to their version of a Strawberry Daiquiri, Scarlett's Passion and, if you want a real Mint Julep, this is the place to get it!
