We are enjoying this new fall weather in Augusta, with a few new recently opened spots for you to visit. As usual, we're suggesting all spots with good food, great drinks, and even better photo ops.

A View from the Top is Always Better

Edgars Above Broad is Augusta's newest rooftop lounge and restaurant. This place is a few week's shy of its September grand opening and has quickly become one of our favorite spots for a fall date night. Don't forget to snap one for the 'Gram in front of April Henry King's mural that is pictured above. 

Augusta's Got Sol

SolFood Kitchen is a locally owned wellness cafe that just recently opened it's doors to Augusta. Specializing in the conscious creations of colorful foods & drinks influenced by a mosaic of cultural cuisines, this new gem offers comfort foods that not only taste good to you, but are good for ya. Be sure to snap a quick photo at their beautiful "sun-inspired" mural painted by Stephanie Forbes.

A Spec-taco-ler Place

Be sure to add Cantina Locale to your list of places to visit this fall. What to order? Grab their chicken nachos with a margarita to pair and let the good times roll. 

Public Art Might Be Our Thing

Augusta is filled with so many unique and creative murals and we're adding just a couple to the art scene. Be sure to add the following new murals to your list:
