Southern Experiences

Marietta Food Tours

Food Tours are one of my favorite ways to explore a new area. You can’t beat getting to try delicious eats while learning a little history. So upon hearing about the Marietta Food Tours in my hometown, I decided this was at the top of my local bucket list. Marietta offers several nationally recognized restaurants, and I was excited to try them out and add new restaurants to my go-to list.

Marietta Food Tours

Marietta Food Tours offers three-hour tours on Saturdays, which includes ten tastings, as well as a Supper Tour on Wednesday night. A Saturday tour costs $50, and the Supper Tour is $75. The walk is comfortable for all fitness levels, and they’ll even help accommodate dietary restrictions.

Australian Bakery Cafe

48 S Park Square NE
Marietta, GA 30060

Austrailian Bakery Cafe opened in the 1990s by expats, and it was the first bakery to sell authentic meat pies in the United States. They also are the only Austrailian Bakery east of the Mississippi River. The Australian Bakery Cafe ships pies around the country and also sells treats from Australia, South Africa, and Britain. Instead of trying one of their meat pies we had the opportunity to taste one of their off-menu items, fish and chips. This dish was probably the best fish and chips dish I have ever eaten; the chips were fresh cut and fish was perfectly battered and fried.

wr Social House

25 N Park Square
Marietta, GA 30060

This place has gone by several names and has served up several different types of dishes. At one point this location served as the home of Dunaway Drug Store and Soda Fountain. Now, wr Social House is known for locally baked bread, house-ground meat, and locally sourced produce. We were served a delicious Pigs in a Blanket made with house-ground sausage alongside tasty honey mustard. Their burgers and brunch also come highly recommended.

Paul’s Pot Pies

10 Mill Street
Marietta, GA 30060

Paul’s Pot Pies is a staple of Marietta Square and has been for 20 years. Initially a catering business and restaurant, Paul’s Pot Pies now serves on what they do best…pot pies. They have been featured on Travel Channel, and offer 12 different recipes to the Cobb County community. The rest of the group noshed on Paul’s Classic Chicken pot pie; I had the opportunity to try Paul’s Italian pie as the dairy-free option. Pies come in a 6-inch and a 10-inch option, so grab one to eat when you get home.

Cool Beans Coffee Roasters

31 Mill Street
Marietta, GA 30060

Cool Beans Coffee Roasters provides you with a much-needed jolt halfway through the tour. This local coffee shop is housed in the old train station. Cool Beans roast their beans onsite in their bright red roaster. I am not much of a coffee drinker, but I heard from everyone else in the group that it was delicious!

Kiosco Colombian Restaurant

48 Powder Springs Street SW
Marietta, GA 30064

Kiosco, Spanish for kiosk, is a cozy restaurant that usually has a wait out the door. Offering traditional Columbian fare, you have to try the seafood paella and carne asada. We had the opportunity to sample traditional tamales and a salad, making this the heartiest tasting of the day.

Marietta Wine Market

18 Powder Springs Street SW
Marietta, GA 30064

Marietta Wine Market sells the square’s best selection of wines from Georgia and beyond. This destination was by far my favorite stop! In addition to having a collection of over 500 beers and wines, Marietta Wine Market offers tastings on Wednesdays and Saturdays. We had the opportunity to try a delicious peach wine, even bought a bottle to take home, with some of the Market’s snacks.

Miss Mamie’s Cupcakes, Cakes and Such

156 Roswell Street NE
Marietta, GA 30060

Every tour should end with something sweet. You have probably heard of Miss Mamie’s from Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, where she won. Cupcake flavors include coconut lemon, tangerine rosemary, and Guinness. Gluten-free and vegan options are also available. Other desserts include tarts, pies, cheesecake, cookies, and custom cakes. Other individuals in the group had the opportunity to try the Guinness cupcake, and I had the dairy-free strawberry option.
