Ryman Recommends: Ike & Jane

Sadly, those of the canine breed are not welcome in many dining establishments, so Ryman has become somewhat of an Athens patio connoisseur. One of his favorite patios during the weekday lunch rush is in Normaltown on Prince Ave. at Ike & Jane. The adorable bakery is known around town for their creative donuts – Lucky Charms topped, Pepper Jelly filled, and “The Elvis”: Banana, Bacon & Peanut Butter just to name a few  - but it’s what this cafe is pumping out after the morning hours that gets Ryman all riled up.

Celebrating their 5th year of business in Athens, Ike & Jane makes some of the best sandwiches in town (See the menu HERE). Every time I bring a friend, and they ask “So, what’s good here?”, I usually find myself rattling off the merits of every single menu item. However, if I had to save only 1 of their sandwiches from a burning building, I would have to go with the Pulled Pork Sandwich. Pulled Pork from a cafe specializing in donuts? I know. I was skeptical too at first, and then I tried it. The pulled pork is sweet with the tiniest hint of spice and topped with a perfect slaw, all on a soft roll. The meat is so juicy you’ll have it dripping down your arms while you find yourself cursing the 1-ply napkins and simultaneously thanking the pig gods from above.

And if you’re like Ryman, and breakfast & lunch just isn’t enough to satisfy you, Ike & Jane partnered up with their neighbor (and Ryman’s favorite bar), Normal Bar to offer Ike @ Nite. Dinner Thursday – Saturday that can be enjoyed on the patio or delivered to Normal Bar. The menu is simple: insanely delicious burgers, hotdogs, Frito Pie, and a dessert.

This bakery+cafe is quintessential Athens with a friendly staff, amazing, creative food, and most importantly, a great patio.
