Steak & Gravy in Greensboro

During college, our favorite day trip from Athens was always to the small town of Greensboro. Located on I-20 just east of Lake Oconee, Greensboro is just far enough away to be completely outside the influence of metro Atlanta, so the pace of life is a lot more relaxed. There’s not a whole lot to do, but it makes for a great change of pace from Midtown.

Greensboro’s main drag. The town is historic and quaint, but not overly touristy.

As usual, a visit to Greenboro always begins with lunch at our favorite restaurant, the Yesterday Cafe. Best cornbread I’ve ever had!

The Greene County Courthouse

The 1807 “Old Gaol”, along with awesome historical placard.

Greensboro’s vegetable market, which caters to an odd mix of locals, tourists, and immigrants. We always come back with a big supply of goodies.

As you might expect, Greensboro is filled with gorgeous old southern homes, such as this last one, which has been restored and converted into a tea room.


  1. You did know that Sarah’s parents lived in Greensboro, GA??
