First, grab a bite to eat at The Original Pancake House
on Windward Parkway
. As might be expected, pancakes are a highlight of the menu here – everything from the fluffy-light buttermilk to banana, blueberry, pecan and coconut, all served with whipped butter and warm syrup. Don’t miss their famous Apple Pancake and Dutch Baby – both specialties of the house!
Begin your shopping adventure on Main Street
to Designer Consigner
, a terrific upscale resale boutique featuring designer labels as well as boutique items and unique pieces, from Banana Republic to Chanel and everything in between. The $4.00 clearance rack at this stop is a favorite of regular customers. Those with an equestrian interest will want to stop by Dover Saddlery,
just a few doors up, featuring the highest quality essential apparel for every rider. Continue traveling south on Main Street
and you’ll find Couture Consigner
with upscale resale items featuring designer labels like St. John
, Prada and Gucci.
By now you're ready for lunch so head to Sage where you can linger over a Woodfire Grilled Salmon Salad and map out the stops at your next destination - North Point Mall. Inside the mall, you'll find a wide variety of stylish, well-known retailers like Cache, Gap, J. Crew and White House/Black Market to suit your every mood, as well as Macy's or Dillard's for your one stop shopping needs.
Around the mall, North Point Village offers upscale retailers Ann Taylor Loft, Talbots and Chico's just to name a few. For bargain shopping, you can't beat North Point Market Center where you'll find Marshall's and Stein Mart only a few steps apart.
And speaking of bargain shopping, there's no place better than Alpharetta to use as a home base for a daytime excursion to North Georgia Premium Outlets - the Atlanta area's upscale outlet center. When you return, graze on the small plate sampler of calamari, spring rolls, crab cakes and bruschetta at Village Tavern, and then retire in luxury at one of Alpharetta’s upscale and modern hotels. A good night’s sleep never felt so good.
