Villy’s has been slinging vegan sandwiches across Atlanta, starting in the Eastside, for about a year now and it’s already landed its first brick and mortar location right in the neighborhood it all began. At 493 Flat Shoals Ave SE, the East Atlanta space is taking over the spot previously housed by Get Fruity Cafe sometime early next year.

Villy’s owner Aaron Gossett-Posey opened up the first pop-up in December 2019 at the 529 East Atlanta Village music venue. Villy’s quickly became popular and Gossett-Posey found more and more opportunities to open up shop in the area, including some time spent in Cabbagetown’s 97 Estoria’s kitchen. Gossett-Posey, according to AJC, directly sought out a brick-and-mortar location that was close to home — both their’s and Villy’s.

What Gossett-Posey, wanted secondary to that was a drive-thru, but while this new location doesn’t satisfy that, it is still home in East Atlanta.

Gossett-Posey first made the announcement for Villy’s solid restaurant in October, saying: “We’re happy to announce in the next coming months we’ll be opening our doors to our first very own Brick and Mortar. We’ll be located right in the heart of East Atlanta Village, where it all started!” Gossett-Posey, along with the Villy’s founder’s partner Max Balbuena, set up a GoFundMe to raise money for renovations.

Two popular dessert items at Villy’s are the deep-fried Oreos and the bacon-wrapped Cinnamon Rolls, all vegan and all made fresh by Gossett-Posey’s own mother.
