You could drive around in traffic until a restaurant sign draws you in, but we've got a better idea. Occasionally Johns Creek Patch picks a great restaurant either in town or nearby that is worth checking out. Here's this week's choice:
Not only does Roam Cafe on Windward Parkway serve as a great alternative to crowded, noisy coffee shops if you need a place to work with free WiFi, but it also has various sizes of meeting and conference rooms for rent if you need privacy.
Tip: The food and gourmet coffee drinks rival those of any coffee shop or lunch place in town. The sandwiches, wraps and salads are freshly prepared in generous portions, and Roam recently started serving breakfast.
