Mayflower Restaurant, 1948, Athens

These days, it’s’ hard to find any Athens landmark in its original location. Even the Varsity, in its second incarnation since the 1960s at the corner of Milledge and Broad, is about to pack up and move. And while purists and locals bemoan the proliferation of chains, especially downtown, the Mayflower is a standout. As its menus proudly proclaim, it’s been “Putting the South in Your Mouth” “Across from the Arch” since 1948. If you’re looking for healthy or trendy, forget about it, but if you crave a good old fashioned diner breakfast or lunch, stop by the Mayflower. The staff are friendly, even if you’re not a regular, and you’ll definitely get your money’s worth.
