Athens, I Love You: Part 3

Today's AILY post is all about my favorite part of town. There are a few distinct areas of Athens.. East and West side, downtown, and Normal Town, just to name a few. Without a doubt the downtown area is my favorite, but a close second to that would be Normal Town. NT is a neighborhood rich with history and a strong sense of community. Not only does it have the CUTEST houses (this is also an area Adam and I would LOVE to live in for a period of time), but it also has unique restaurants and bakeries. 

One of the most notable restaurants in NT is The Grit.  The Grit is all vegetarian and mostly non-dairy, and all of their food is bought local. It definitely has that Athens-y "lived-in" feel that I love!! The atmosphere is fun and relaxed and the food is very reasonably priced.

And my favorite part of NT.... Ike and Janes! I&J's is a bakery that specializes in coffee, sandwiches, and baked goods. Their baked goods are especially unique and I love it! I'm thinking I might need to make a trip there tomorrow morning ; )

I mean seriously.....
