There are two Buckhead Souper Jenny locations - one inside the Atlanta History Center, and the other on the border of Brookhaven on Peachtree - and both are worth going out of your way for when you need a lunch that won’t lead to a 2pm crash. The short menu is made up of soups, salads, and sandwiches and everything is kind of healthy, quick, and easy to take to go if there’s no time to sit on their patio. At $14 for your choice of two options, along with a cookie and drink, their lunch special is what you come here for.
