Like the name says, the bread is reason to come here. Always fresh and amazing, it goes wonderfully with the many sandwiches and dishes they offer. I like to buy the baguettes here but the sourdough wheat loaf is truly unique.

Café
“The idea behind The National is simple: to provide a casual neighborhood gathering spot reminiscent of the bars and cafés they've enjoyed on travels to Europe. Chef Peter Dale's Mediterranean inspired food and wine is served for lunch and dinner in the dining room and throughout the day at the bar. While the menu points to culinary traditions from abroad, The National partners with local farmers to create dishes reflecting the changing seasons in Northeast Georgia. The result is an experience unique to Athens. ”
