Willa Jean serves its all-day diners fresh-baked tartines, sweets and savory fare at this CBD bakery and restaurant. Part of the Besh Restaurant Group, Willa Jean focuses on nostalgic, comforting nods to the past in dishes like pimento cheese with shaved country ham and pickles, a fried chicken sandwich served on a Hawaiian roll with serrano slaw, or meatloaf with mashed potatoes, bacon gravy, butter beans and tomato jam. The lofty, light-filled space showcases brick walls and a wraparound bar that pours coffee drinks, house cocktails and boozy slushies.
