Atlanta Allergy-Friendly Travel Itinerary


Hi! I’m Amanda, I’m 22 years old and live in Orlando, Florida. I spent 5 days in Atlanta, Georgia to explore the city and career opportunities. I found so many amazing spots that were either allergy-friendly or able to accommodate my severe peanut allergy. Some of my favorite stops include Toscano Ristorante Italiano, a family-owned and operated Italian restaurant in the heart of Atlantic Station, and Cake In The Box Bakery, Atlanta’s nut free bakery. If you are looking for allergy-friendly Beignets, you have to check out Yay Beignets. They are the best beignets I have ever had, and 100% peanut free! I reviewed all my spots from the trip on the Spokin app! Follow me on the Spokin app @amandapayo1219 and Instagram @amandapayo1219 to see more of my restaurant reviews and travel finds!

Dinner: HOBNOB Neighborhood Tavern

The food was delicious and safe! HOBNOB has some of the best homemade chicken pot pie I have ever had! They do not have any peanuts in their kitchen, so I was able to safely enjoy my meal. I definitely would come again.

Treat: Cake in the Box Bakery

We found this specialty bakery through Atlanta Dessert Guide on Instagram and wow, did this not disappoint! Trenise is beyond amazing and reassuring when it comes to delivering and making delicious homemade, nut-free sweet treats. She is also very accommodating. We ordered a dozen white chocolate raspberry cupcakes and we wish we ordered more. They are amazing and such a great find as the only 100% nut-free bakery in Atlanta!


Atlantic Station


Lunch: Hattie B’s Hot Chicken

“No nuts whatsoever here!” -from the chef directly with a thumbs up as I looked at him overjoyed. Hattie B’s fries in soybean oil and the food was excellent! The dirty bird fries are a must! The service was great and the staff was great with answering allergy questions!

Treat: Yay Beignet

Yay Beignet is the perfect place for beignets in ATL! They are hot, fresh, and delicious (better than the Disney beignets!) The salted caramel sauce was out of this world and, even better, it’s 100% peanut-free!


The National civil and human rights museum and Centennial Park


Dinner: Toscano Ristorante Italiano

The BEST Italian food! It was unlike any I have ever had and I cannot wait to come back. The staff was knowledgeable about allergies and made sure my food was away from any nuts in the kitchen as a precaution. The calamari, fettuccine alfredo, and the bucatini carbonara were phenomenal. Everything hot, fresh, and made from scratch. The pasta was some of the best I have ever had! True Italian food in Atlanta—reminds me of my dad’s!

Sightseeing/Venues: Ponce City Market

Ponce City Market is one of my favorite places! They had tons of food options, however it was hard at first being able to research the restaurants beforehand. It was a positive experience, though, because the majority of restaurants/ice cream places were able to accommodate my peanut allergy.


Dinner: Emmy Squared Pizza: Midtown

They made sure the pizza was prepared separately, away from the nuts they have in their kitchen. The pizza was Detroit style and reminded me a lot of a square slice from New York. It was delicious. Cheesy goodness! The pizzas are perfect size to share and will leave you quite full.


Buckhead and Smyrna general areas, ATL Beltline


Breakfast: Maple Street Biscuit Company Atlanta

We are big fans of Maple Street Biscuit Company! They have some of the best chicken, biscuits, and gravy. They are peanut-free and fry in vegetable oil.

Treat: Mary Mac’s Tea Room

When we went in to place our to-go order, the waiter took the time to go to the back and ask about allergens, informing us that their peach cobbler was safe for me to eat. After we placed the order, he went back to the kitchen again to remind them of my allergy and brought out our peach cobbler when it was ready, assuring us that it was made safely. It was absolutely delicious and the best way to end our trip! We will definitely be going back to try their fried chicken and mac + cheese!
