    First off the baguettes rock! They are shipped all the way from NYC and you can purchase them frozen or already baked. If your looking for local products such as eggs, milk and yogurt, this is a great place to come. The prepared food is consistently good, especially the sesame noodles which are simple yet addicting. The addition of crab ...

    If you're a hipster, you'll love this place. It's filled with random shops, some pretty good coffee and food, and, well, a lot of drugged out people. The shops are secondhand, which is awesome! But, they're more like clothes found in Salvation Army with $50 added to the price tag. The food I have had here is great, but pricey ...

    Beautiful campus; it was fun helping my brother move in. Of course, this is from the visitor point of view. My brother says their campus meals aren't so great. Some of the housing is old...the area is also very much a college town, so it's safe. However you have to have a car to go out of the area. Emory ...

    Variety Playhouse is a concert hall based in the indie-hipster neighborhood of Little Five Points. Many up and coming bands and singers play here. For example, Norah Jones played at Variety Playhouse and tickets were only $12. I kid you not. The venue is intimate yet big enough to house a large crowd.
