Reveille Cafe Is Bringing Marietta Back to the Breakfast Table

By Elisha Neubauer

For the McCann family growing up, Sunday was the most anticipated day of the week. Not because it was a day to attend church, or a day to relax, but because of Sunday breakfast. The smell of bacon wafted through the house as eggs were frying in an iron-skillet on the stove. Potatoes and onions were shoveled onto the plates rounded out the meal. Best of all, Sunday was the only day in which the children were able to enjoy small cups of coffee.

It was a treat, one which the McCanns wanted to recreate. So, they launched Reveille Café in Marietta, Georgia.

"Whatever your passion is for breakfast, Reveille has recreated the age-old breakfast tradition and combined it with today's favorites and some healthier options as well, including eggs Benedict, strawberry waffles, bacon & eggs, or a bowl of oatmeal with a side of fresh fruit," said Nicole McCann.

The Reveille Café wasn't the first restaurant the McCanns owned together. In fact, Nicole McCann had been in the industry for over 20 years while her husband, Jay, had a 40-year tenure in the food service business. The couple had launched other breakfast restaurants together over the years, but wanted to do something a little different than the age-old breakfast joint.

"We decided to open Reveille after realizing that our guests at our current breakfast restaurants didn't like change," said McCann. "If we would change something or take an item off the menu we would have lots of backlash."

The pair wanted to experiment with different ideas and different flavors and by launching a new concept restaurant, they were able to do just that. Reveille's menu is small but the eatery does a lot of specials were they get a little creative.

"We don't like a lot of clutter and we prefer our food and service to stand out," said McCann. "Like I said earlier my husband and I have been in this business a long time, we have seen a lot of restaurants in our life time fail, if you don't provide good service and food in a clean environment you will not make it anymore. We strive daily to make sure that every guest that walks through our doors is happy when they leave our stores."
