Restaurant
“If it's the dinner party you are looking forward to hosting but not cooking for or if you are searching for a classic Southern lunch spot, you should add Athens' A-list caterer and chef, Marti Schimmel to your roldex. Marti's a Midday, her gourmet eatery, dishes up sandwiches, salads, soups and Southern style staples for dining in or take away. Located in Normaltown, the restaurant's cheery dining area, sunroom and colorful patio offer a place to relax and enjoy your company as much as your food. You'll be engaged by Schimmel's hospitality, bubbly personality and laid-back style. Oh, and don't be surprised if she shows up in her designer apron and high heels, as she loves to greet every customer with a warm Southern welcome and smile. Everything is made in house and cooked with a kiss! ”
