Brookhaven has put itself on the map over the past few years. Town Brookhaven and the new Brookhaven Village have added retail, housing and dining options in a hot part of Atlanta just north of Lenox Square Mall. Although there aren’t as many places to eat as compared to Midtown or Decatur, the restaurants that are nearby are very easy to walk to, and there will be even more options in the future with a transit-oriented mixed-used development planned around the station itself.
To start your culinary commute, here is the list of restaurants near the Brookhaven MARTA station with the restaurants closest to MARTA listed first.
Directly next to the station is the Atlanta go-to Waffle House. Turn right on Peachtree Street in front of the station to get your scattered, smothered and covered hash browns or a variety of other foods.
