The Canteen food hall is open in Midtown

Today marks the opening of another Atlanta food hall.

The Canteen is a micro food hall located at 75 Fifth Street NW at Tech Square in Midtown . Highly anticipated since its announcement last summer, The Canteen is the latest venture from business partners Todd Ginsberg, Shelley Sweet, and Jennifer and Ben Johnson - the team behind The General Muir and other Atlanta restaurant concepts.

Housed in the space formerly occupied by the now-shuttered Spence, The Canteen holds outposts of Fred’s Meat & Bread and Yalla, both of which also have locations in Krog Street Market , as well as General Muir bakery spinoff TGM Bagel and new concept Square Bar.

TGM Bagel serves bagels and other breakfast items along with coffee, while Square Bar offers juices and smoothies in the morning and transitions to a full bar featuring beer, wine, and other alcoholic beverages later in the day.

The Canteen. 7 a.m.-9 p.m. Mondays-Thursdays, 7 a.m.-10 p.m. Fridays, 8 a.m.-10 p.m. Saturdays and 8 a.m.-9 p.m. Sundays. 75 Fifth St. NW, Atlanta. Facebook: The Canteen.
