Flavor Cafe Bakery Coupons and Deals
Scout Notes:While we're huge fans of the little (sometimes not so pretty) exotic food joints scattered in and around the A, every so often we get a hankerin' for our favorite cuisines served up with a side of class. (It's true—the 'stache only encourages such ventures.) And at Sandy Springs' Flavor Restaurant and Bar, that's what you'll find—fine authentic Persian cuisine that fits in quite well with the recently revamped, re-swanked environs. Just a few short months ago, the 7-years-young restaurant underwent a placelift, transforming the former cafe and bakery into a schmancy restaurant and full bar (no worries, they kept the bakery too). Even though the interior has shifted toward fancier copper and blue hues, the mission remains the same: good food. We like where this is going. Restauranteer Peter (who recently returned from a trip to the Persia itself) has taken these traditional Persian dishes (think kabobs and baba ghanoush galore) and made them better. Really. If you're a kabob lover like ma'self, this may be hard to believe. But he's good. Medals hanging on the wall, good. During his time abroad, Peter realized that many of the classic preparations involved subpar ingredients and lots o' frying. So he's challenged himself to make them healthier and (even) better tasting—using high quality (often organic) produce, grass-fed beef and antibiotic-free chicken. Flavor's ingredients are healthful and, well, flavorful—no frying required. And practically everything is house made, Peter chuckles, "if I had the time, I would make it all myself." Yes, they make their soups and their ice cream in addition to their baked goods, but, gentlemen, they even make their own strained-with-cheesecloth yogurt. And that's when it gets real. Because who said homemade goodness couldn't be classy as all get out? Now that's a mission we can get behind. Menu Highlights: Shish Kabob, $22 Baba Ghanoush, $7 Gheimeh Bodenjoon (Eggplant dish), $14 Trinity Oaks Pinot Noir, Glass $6 Koobideh Kabob, $14 Hours: Monday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Why You Should Go: You may be boating or fishing on the fresh waters of Chattahoochee River instead of the deep blue waters of the Mediterranean, but that doesn't mean you can't indulge in some seriously delicious Mediterranean-influenced cuisine this fall.

Why You’ll Love It: Combining the friendly vibe of a neighborhood joint with the world-class cuisine of a fine dining establishment, Flavor Restaurant & Bar’s delicious menu is the brainchild of award-winning executive chef Peter Teimori and his team of talented chefs. Your meal may be casual, but it will also be memorable. What to Eat: The menu of Mediterranean-influenced fare will delight palates with starters like cucumber-garlic yogurt dip, tabouli salad, and “Mirza Ghasemi” (oven-roasted eggplant with tomato and garlic). For mains, there’s a variety of kabob platters, made with rack of lamb, marinated shrimp, grass-fed ground beef, saffron chicken, and center-cut filet mignon.

Open seven days a week.ReviewsBy Ron Elgin on UrbanspoonThis place never disappoints. Whether it is for lunch or for dinner. At lunch we will get the any way meal with half a sandwich and soup or salad. The half a sandwich is almost a meal in itself. But all of their sandwiches are made fresh with nice crisp chips. And their full salads leave plenty to take home. Dinner is also a treat. Always lots of options to choose from and the tuna as an appetizer is always perfect. I don't think you'll be disappointed at the options at this nice local restaurant and bakery. I'm glad to have them in Sandy Springs!By Michelle on UrbanspoonAs I walk into Flavor Cafe Bakery, I am greeted by a beautiful atmosphere with copper topped tables and plenty of comfy booths. Despite the amazing smell of fresh bread and pastries that I LOVE, I decided to sit on the outdoor patio to enjoy the beautiful weather. This is my fourth time back to Flavor since I've discovered it, and definitely not my last. I have enjoyed their yummy breakfasts with my husband. We love the turkey bacon, chicken sausage, and especially the french toast! For lunch I recommend the chicken tortilla soup, and any of their tasty salads. I just recently came in for dinner, where they have table service in the evenings. It was a nice change and they offer great food for an even better price. With options like bistro filet, salmon, tilapia, and even mahi mahi, nothing was over $13, and it's all served with a soup or salad. Above all, I love Flavor's desserts. They have a great chocolate mouse cake, and my favorite tiramisu!! I have told many of my friends about this restaurant, and was even fortunate enough to meet the owner. If you are ever in the Sandy Springs area, please stop in for some of the best food you've ever had!!
