What’s in Store?
Whole Foods on Ponce!! Whole Foods on Ponce!! Whole Foods on Ponce!! Please excuse our excitement, but our smiles still have not worn off. Don’t get us wrong, we’re not content with just one Whole Foods Market and hope to continue our growth both in the Atlanta area and beyond, but getting on the shelves at our first Whole Foods is an amazing feeling! And to top things off, we made our first delivery on June 28, exactly one day before our two-year anniversary. Needless to say, the Honeysuckle Gelato crew had reason to celebrate this past weekend.
This would not have happened without all of the support we’ve received and we can’t thank each of you enough for that. With that being said, we would love for that support to continue. For all of you who do your shopping at another local Whole Foods Market, you can now stop by your local store and tell them that you would love to see them carry Honeysuckle Gelato!
With your help, we can get in to all of the metro Atlanta stores but for now you can find our pints at Whole Foods Market, 650 Ponce de Leon Avenue, Atlanta, GA.
Our Favorite People & Places
For all of our favorite Roswell folks, we’re happy to announce that a great new restaurant has opened up in your neighborhood! From the same great duo that brought you C&S Seafood and Oyster Bar on Cobb Parkway, Hugo’s Oyster Bar is now open for business. While both restaurants are committed to “simple seafood preparations that let the ingredients shine,” Hugo’s is not at all a clone of C&S. The atmosphere at Hugo’s is casual and you’re guaranteed to have a laid-back, and affordable, night.
The menu highlights only seafood native to the Southeastern United States, which stretches from the Outer Banks down to the Mississippi Delta with the one notable exception being the top-quality oysters from the Northeast. The catch, and the menu, are seasonal and ever-changing.
And for dessert, they have a wide-range of some great flavors of gelato that you can’t find many other places. Currently, they carry Chocolate Hazelnut, Blueberry Cobbler, Vanilla (plain or in a Root Beer float!), Watermelon-Lemon Sorbet and Red Grape Sorbet.
C&S Seafood and Oyster Bar is located at 3240 Cobb Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30339 and Hugo’s Oyster Bar is located at 10360 Alpharetta Street, Roswell, GA 30075.
While the Honeysuckle Gelato truck has been busy this summer with private catering functions (don’t forget to book us by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org), we’re excited to make a rare vending appearance for the Atlanta Street Food Festival! The organizers did an amazing job last year and this year looks to be even better. With nearly 30 food vendors and 8 bands, there will be food and music to fit all tastes.
You definitely don’t want to miss this event and when you come, don’t forget that the best way to cool off on a hot July day in Piedmont Park is with some Honeysuckle Gelato!
Tickets for the Atlanta Street Food Festival can be purchased here. We hope to see you there!
