The General Muir is about as close to a real New York deli as you’ll find in the south, and while they’re open all day, breakfast and brunch are where this place really shines. This casual spot in Toco Hills serves classics likes latkes, pastrami hash, and bagels and lox, along with plenty of other dishes that’ll make wonder how anyone ever got anything done after breakfast in 1930s New York. Since it’s right next to Emory, The General Muir is always packed first thing in the morning, but this is one place that we actually think is worth the wait.
