Last night, author, salon owner and now restauranteur Gocha Hawkins along with Hennessy VSOP Privilege hosted a festive grand opening celebration for Atlanta’s newest cafe Gocha’s Breakfast Bar. VIPs flocked to the upscale restaurant, located in Atlanta’s affluent Cascade neighborhood, and cheered on as Gocha – along with City of South Fulton Mayor Bill Edwards and South Fulton Chamber of Commerce President Dyan Matthews – cut the ceremonial grand opening ribbon. The party continued inside with music by DJ Roots Queen, complimentary cocktails by Hennessy and a lavish buffet of Gocha’s Breakfast Bar specialties such as shrimp and grits, “Krunch-Tastic” French Toast, “Better Than Yo Momma” Biscuits, and Candied Maple Bacon.
