Living in Grant Park definitely has it's perks. I'm close to work, we're close to Braves games and we're super close to the highway so we can get anywhere in the city pretty quick (when there isn't traffic). One of the downsides is being on the opposite side of town from Mae's Bakery. The bakery opened just a few weeks ago on Lenox Road, in the shopping center that is home to Roasters. I wish they were closer to my house, for purely selfish reasons of course.
Bakery and coffee shops can feel like they're trying too hard to be comfortable, but Mae's hits it right on the nose. The interior is beyond welcoming and calming, like they are inviting you into their home. They are still working out what to put on the walls, but even without the added decor, the dining room (is it called that in a bakery?) is a place you want to sit and relax. I did sit for a few minutes while I was there and the chairs are amazing. I know it's not something I would normally call out in a restaurant review, but these chairs were awesome. I said to one of my co-workers who was with me on my visit, "they're so comfortable, they fit your butt!" I hate sitting in a chair that feels one inch too narrow, right?

I wish I lived closer to Mae's Bakery. You're lucky if you do. Check them out.
