Candi’s is a new spot at Irwin Street Market – on the border of the Old Fourth Ward and Inman Park – sharing space with Jake’s Ice Cream at 660 Irwin Street.
There are two things that make me love a breakfast spot: a solid command of the basics and a cheap price. Candi’s has both. The staff is friendly, and the atmosphere is fun.
I had a veggie omelet with goat cheese, and was very pleased to have no mark up for egg whites only. The waitress apologized for the appearance, which was a bit broken, but the taste was definitely on the mark. Plates come with TWO sides: I had an english muffin and oatmeal. The oatmeal was very especially good, but if you don’t like cinnamon, then definitely it isn’t for you.
My dining partner had a ham and cheese omelet with a biscuit. The omelet was basic, but good. The biscuit was much enhanced by the wonderful homemade mango jam (all the jams are homemade–a nice touch). He reported the coffee was good (I don’t drink the stuff).
Candi’s hasn’t been discovered by many people yet, so there was no wait. The price for two of us was just under $15.00–a good deal anywhere, but especially good given the quality of the food.
