Emory Village in Druid Hills has been reinventing itself for the past few years. Once a confusing bottleneck of streets, Emory Village now has a stream-lined “roundabout” that funnels traffic easily around the five adjoining streets. Students and residents now have directed walkways to pass through the intersection, and a nearby Park Area as well.
Emory Village has been the local hangout for residents of Druid Hills and for students and members of Emory University faculty for many years. Last year, Everybody’s Pizza, longtime favorite bar and restaurant, closed their doors for good and was mourned by many. Now several new establishments have moved into Emory Village.
- Slice&Pint pizza and brewery opened recently on the corner offering quality beer and homemade pizza.
- Ink & Elm owners Nick Chaivarlis and Keith Osborne were inspired by Frederick Law Olmstead, who developed the adjacent Druid Hills neighborhood in the 1890’s and his vision, adopting the name Ink – an allusion to Olmsted’s renderings, and Elm – for his favorite tree. Stylish décor and an inviting lobby, along with their varied menu, make this new restaurant/tavern a popular destination in Emory Village.
Some favorite restaurants and shops are still operating here
- Saba – offers handmade pastas and an intimate family setting for lunch or dinner
- Rise-n-Dine – the best place for breakfast with homemade granola and an enticing menu
- Panera Bread – a remodeled bakery-café with dining room and outside patio – always fresh breads and healthy salads
Located on one of the five streets in the Emory“roundabout” is the main entrance to Emory University, well known for it’s outstanding liberal arts, graduate and professional schools. Emory campus is lovely in all seasons and a pleasure to walk through.
