WHY WE LOVE IT: Founded in 1992 by pastry chef Alon Banshan, Alon’s is an Atlanta staple. The “Experts in Casual Entertaining” do it all. It’s your one-stop shop for catering needs, prepared foods, market items, and bakery goods (try the Double Chocolate Chunk Cookie and thank us later!). If that’s not enough, Alon’s will pre-pack a picnic for you complete with cheese, wine, and anything else your heart desires… need we say more?! We recommend pairing with Shibori Picnic for a picture-perfect Piedmont Park evening.
