‘Good Morning’ Breakfast Eatery to Replace Shuttered Puff and Petals In Old Fourth Ward

Late-night breakfast lovers will soon have an option that isn't Waffle House, R. Thomas, Owner Dennis McKinley says.

Puff & Petals, a femme-focused small bites and cocktails lounge by R&B singer K. Michelle that shuttered roughly three weeks ago, will soon be replaced by a breakfast eatery called Good Morning.

The forthcoming corner-spot restaurant on Edgewood Ave. in Old Fourth Ward intends to complement the late-night entertainment scene that Edgewood already has built-in and provide an alternative destination for late night/after hours breakfast in the city.

“During the day, we have Thumbs Up and maybe Highland Bakery,” Good Morning Owner Dennis McKinley shared with What Now Atlanta Thursday.

“I own several establishments throughout the city that are open late and quite frankly, at night, we only have Waffle House or R. Thomas in Buckhead to go to. I just think Atlanta needed another option for late-night breakfast.”

After minor interior renovations to the 800-square-foot space are complete, Good Morning is expected to open by May 2020.

Walter Jordan and The DWRC Group helped develop the concept.

McKinley recently opened a Castleberry Hill outpost of his CRU Hemp Lounge chain, which replaced the Habanos Cigar Lounge.

He also owns and operates The Original Hot Dog Factory which has two locations in Smyrna and Downtown, where Slice Piedmont once operated.
