Ate there today at a business meeting and the food was very good. The layout took getting used to. You walk up and order like you would at a Panera or Tazikis but the atmosphere is nicer. Service was pretty quick and portions were good. I had the Cobb Salad which was very good. Would come back to try the pot roast grilled cheese.

Was staying at the Marriott right across the street and decided to go here for breakfast. I ordered the pancakes and my boyfriend ordered the French toast, we both had home fries. The breakfast was delicious the pancakes were amazing. The orange juice is fresh squeezed. I would definitely be back.

This restaurant is located near our office. When we have out-of-town employees in Alpharetta for business meetings, they often request lunch at the Black Walnut Cafe. The menu is diverse enough for most guests to find something appealing. The interior is upscale, clean, and the staff is friendly. However, as noted by other travelers, you order, pay for your meal(s), and wait for your pager to alert you when your food is ready - no table service. Personally, it is not a negative for me, but many travelers would expect full service at this price range.

The wait for orders to be prepared is inconsistent. There have been times when our orders were ready within a few minutes and other times when the wait was uncomfortably long. However, the overall quality of the food has been consistently good.

I ordered the Chipotle Chicken Pepper Pasta. It has some spicy heat, but it is not overwhelming. It is somewhere between mild and medium on the heat index. I would have preferred a larger portion, but the flavors are a nice alternative to plain Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo dishes. On a side note, the salads ordered by our group had very generous portions. All of our meals were very good.

Since this is the top choice for our visiting employees, we will definitely be back in the near future.

There were 4 people in our party. We were trying to have a quick business lunch, and get back to the office. We had 3 salads, one grilled cheese. 45 minutes later one of the salads still was not out. It finally came with many apologies, and while the food was fine, I’m not sure any salad is worth a 45 minute wait.

LLe0n - we're disappointed to hear your experience was not more positive and would like the opportunity to connect with you directly about this. We'll send you a message for more details. While our salads are made to order, it should not have taken this long and we apologize for your wait time. We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Thank you,
Bobbi

Great breakfast place with full bar! Eggs benny and peach French toast are to die for! Bloody Mary was perfect!
