We met our student for brunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. The parking lot was full, he was 20 minutes late, and still the staff was gracious and kept the coffee poured! All locally sourced foods, organic, and locally roasted coffee. The French toast was incredible and the yogurt with granola and fruit was a portion large enough for 2. We... More

Given the other reviews online and the name I figured would be a quaint delicious farm-to-table cafe with seasonal menu items. Maybe it is and all three of us, in my family, ordered the wrong things. The atmosphere is cute and boho and the place was packed but it was 85 degrees inside. The food was just ok - rather... More

This has been a favorite of mine in the past, but recently I was there with a large group and it was not a good experience. Service was incredibly slow and there were lots of mistakes with our orders. Maybe it was because we were a large group, or perhaps there was staff member "in training." The vegan brownie was...

We went with a large group and still service was good and the food tasty, plentiful and reasonably priced. I would go back.

It was unseasonably cool and the staff was happy to turn off the overhead fan and turn down the air conditioning. Friendly server, food came promptly. We ordered the regular and the veggie hamburgers, both of which were good. The "side salad for $3" was tasty, but quite small. We arrived at 6:30 p.m. on a Friday, just missing the... More

My husband and I went for brunch on a Sunday. We made a reservation ahead of time as it's always busy. The place was PACKED when we got there but we were seated within 5 minutes. It was a gorgeous day so dining on the patio was a must. The servers were attentive and the food and drinks were delicious.... More

Not a place to go if in hurry; however the service and the food were great. The personel is friendly and very attentive. The food took thirty minutes to arrive, but the coffee was good and plentiful, and a complimentary chocolate muffin makes you wait with a smile. Taste the raspeberry jam available on each table.

Was on a college visit to UGA with my son when we found the heirloom, what a wonderful surprise. Our server Celeste was amazing and guided my son through his first experience eating southern grits. He loved them they are called "red mule" grits and are ground and grown by a local couple, we bought 3 bags at the local... More

Having eaten at Heirloom many times the weekend brunch is my absolute favorite in Athens. The Love on a biscuit is truly unique and should not be missed.

Great cafe. We enjoyed our food very much. Wheat free pancakes were huge! Coffee could have been a bit warmer but the pimento cheese grits and amazing biscuits made up for that. Staff was friendly. Will definitely go the next time I get a chance.
