Hungry stomachs are forced to contemplate cooking their own food while our brains are busy plotting ways to make Hollywood starlets fall in love with our ungainly cousins. Quell an insurgent appetite for $10 with $20 worth of breakfast or lunch sandwiches, salads, and soups at The Red Hen. This brunchtime joint in Alpharetta is open daily from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., and your Groupon can be used toward dine-in or carryout. Around mid-April (once the weather warms up), The Red Hen will also be open Friday nights for tapas—this Groupon is valid for the tasty finger-food, but not for any alcoholic drinks.
The Red Hen's menu offers an extensive array of breakfast and lunch sandwiches, classics, and exploratory creations. Breakfast (which is served all day) hatches out of eggs benedict topped with hollandaise sauce ($8.59) or crustless artichoke and cheddar quiche served with toast or an English muffin ($7.99). Griddle grub includes classic french toast (made with fresh challah bread, $6.99) or the creative sweet-potato waffles (with a dollop of whipped cinnamon butter, $6.79). For lunch, visit green pastures with a crisp salad ($6.59–$6.99) or layered sandwich such as the Red Hen club with turkey, Monterey jack, bacon, tomato, and arugula on sourdough ($8.79). Amidst the deli meat creations, there are also vegetarian options including a portabella burger ($8.59).
With a friendly staff and homey décor, the overall ambience at The Red Hen is like a full-service, humungous hammock. Its cozy confines can cause any day to agreeably begin or provide a midday doldrum-blasting raygun of deliciousness. Bring your family to comfortably feast and add to the family of families at The Red Hen, or pop in for a snappy bite to eat between a noon doctor's appointment and noon-30 knighting at Medieval Times.
- As for the food, I have no complaints there. I decided to try The Red Hen's crustless artichoke and cheddar quiche and a ½ order of "citrus scented" French Toast. In spite of what appears to be a small portion size, the artichoke/cheddar quiche was quite tasty and satisfying. – Hopeless Foodie
- It's not your typical breakfast/ lunch eatery. Looking down the menu, one could see names that are vaguely familiar. For starters, the French fries, a dear staple to lunchtime food, are served with parmesan cheese and fresh herbs. A quiche is made of artichokes and cheddar cheese. – Jonathan Copsey, The Beacon
- I've enjoyed it every time I've eaten there. I've had most listed on the breakfast menu and have noticed the good quality and freshness of the ingredients each time. To start, I would suggest the Parm fries or the mushroom soup. – Dana, Urbanspoon
- This is such a quaint little space that gives you such a cozy feeling. – IddyM, CityVoter
