Thomas Square's and Starland District's Best Dining & Attractions

Where the Locals go to eat and Shop!

From fine dining at Elizabeth on 37th to delicious burgers at the Green Truck, the Thomas Square Streetcar neighborhood offers some of the best restaurants in the city. 

The Vault: The Vault, an Asian fusion spot at the corner of Bull and 38th street, once occupied by tellers, in a former Bank of America building. Though the interior has been dramatically changed from the building’s previous life as a bank, there are some nods to the structure’s previous use like the Picasso-esque wall hanging made out of safety deposit boxes. I’ve tried this restaurant numerous times now and if there’s one thing I’ve learned, It’s impossible to choose the wrong dish!

Back in the Day Bakery: If you have a sweet tooth, you’ll want to stop by Back in the Day Bakery and try an Old Fashioned Cupcake or some of their delicious banana pudding! Can’t decide on breakfast, you truly can’t go wrong with the everything biscuit!


Shopping and Attractions:

The Thomas Square Streetcar neighborhood has its fair share of galleries and stores, but some of the best shopping is the area’s many antique shops. Spend an afternoon exploring the Habersham Antiques Market. The store, located in a converted early 20th-century grocery story, has room after room of antiques from more than 70 dealers!
