Just a twenty-minute drive from Macon in downtown Forsyth,
across from the courthouse, there is a sweet, southern-charm
cafe called Grits. Located in a historical building, it still holds
the original late 1800s storefront. The cafe has many European
influences and displays beautiful art which add to the calming,
southern-style, sophisticated spot.
Leslie Waters, front-of-house manager, and Jamie Waters, executive chef, had worked there a combined 28 years. Under their watchful eye and taste for excellence, the restaurant thrived. When ownership changed, they were asked to bring back their golden teamwork to run it again.
The cafe features a full bar and amazing dishes like the grilled ahi tuna, famous shrimp and grits and a beloved chicken panini. Each of their dishes are classically Southern with creative twists that customers can’t get enough of. Grits Cafe also has two private-dining rooms which can be combined into one, seating up to 60 people. Whether on a stroll through a historic corner in Forsyth or arranging a dining party, Grits Cafe is one excellent place worthy of trying.
