Since it opened almost two years ago, Big Family Cafe has built a following in Homewood Hills by serving reliably delicious, fresh food off a large menu. You can bring your kids. You can bring your parents. You can get an omelet for breakfast or lunch, and avocado comes with tons of entrees. Once before, it tried expanding its hours to include dinner, but couldn't make a go of it. Now it's trying again. The new hours are 7 a.m.–9 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, 7 a.m.–3 p.m. Sunday (closed Monday).
The space downtown that most recently housed a branch of local franchise Your Pie will soon be home to Zombie Coffee and Donuts. Owner Tony Raffa, who won't graduate with his undergraduate degree from UGA until the end of this semester, owns another branch of the store in Washington, D.C., but says he's excited to open one in Athens.
In some ways it's hard to believe Automatic Pizza hasn't been around any longer than a year, so quickly did it attract an audience and become a regular stop for many in its neighborhood. But it's one year old today, so it's offering dollar slices and dollar PBRs all day. It closes at 11 p.m. Go get some.
D.P. Dough, downtown's second late-night-oriented quick-service calzone eatery that also delivers is now open, in the Georgia Heights building, on the Broad Street side. To celebrate, it will be giving away free calzones next Thursday (Feb. 4) from 5–8 p.m. It will not operate regular hours that day and will not accept orders over the phone or in store. As long as you are in line by 8 p.m. and you check in via social media (on-site) in one of the following ways, you will receive a free calzone:

Oconee County has issued building permits for two new restaurants in Epps Bridge Centre, one for Bone Island Grillhouse and the other for Diablo’s Southwest Grille.
Goodie Two Shoes, the offshoot of Mama's Boy that opened in the 909 Broad building in December 2014, will stop serving lunch after next Friday, Jan. 29. It will remain in business as a space for event rental and in which Mama's Boy can do catering prep.
And so it continues... Speakeasy, which found new life early in 2015 with a beautifully revised menu and a new sense of refinement in the kitchen, will close December 31. Owner/chef Patrick Anderson wrote, on its Facebook page:
