Restaurant Spotlight – Cafe’ Social House

Jan 20, 2019 | Uncategorized

One of the most talked-about subjects in our Facebook group is restaurants. MIC’s Economic Development Committee decided to visit Mableton restaurants periodically, and provide some basic information about them — or in other words, “shine a spotlight” on the restaurants in our community. MIC does not endorse the restaurants; the Spotlight exists simply to introduce Mabletonians to restaurants in Mableton.

Date of visit: Thursday, January 17, 2019, 11:30am (brunch and lunch)

Food type: breakfast, burgers, specialties (wings, wraps, sandwiches), fresh sides, “signature” blackened fish/seafood/chicken, desserts, kids’ menu

Location: 1400 Veterans Memorial Highway SE, Suite 122, Mableton (SW corner of Veterans Memorial Highway and Discovery Blvd/Oakdale Road)

Phone: 404.549.9096

Hours:  Monday-Thursday  9am-9pm, Friday 9am-10pm, Saturday-Sunday  8am-3pm



Food Safety Score:  100 – October 1, 2018

Ambience:  Chic, clean lines, with décor of black/white/red/gray; subtle and pleasant lighting.  Flatware is very nice angular white ceramic, fitting with the general décor; black cloth napkins (another nice touch). Appears to be a full bar in the future; per staff at visit, no liquor license yet but is in process.   Piped-in music a very pleasant mix, not overly loud.  Soft family touch:  one half-wall posts colored-by-kids’ paper placements.

Wifi: yes

Parking: plentiful

Experience:  Reservations not required, but available online from website or phone. Everything very fresh and perfectly cooked – Chicken (blackened) & Waffles, and Blackened Tilapia Burger with Mac & Cheese (all delicious).  The sandwich’s plating included tiny edible flowers decorating the plate rim, a nice touch. Service was very friendly, attentive, and informative. Lots of “blackened” dishes on the menu; the blackening rub is not too hot, and full of flavor layers. So nice to have a non-chain, local, neighborhood restaurant!
