Gocha Hawkins, owner of Gocha’s Breakfast Bar, has plans to open a tapas bar in April. The new restaurant will be located at 5829 Campbellton Rd. in the Sandtown Crossing development anchored by Publix.
The restaurant will have a 1,500-square-foot interior and a 2,100-square-foot patio. Among the items planned for the menu include shishito peppers, Impossible sliders, stuffed crab mushrooms, fried green tomatoes with crab salad, cauliflower tacos and lobster rolls. The tapas bar will also have a full bar and cocktail list.
In a statement to the media, Hawkins said that she hopes that Gocha’s Tapas Bar will be a “space where locals and visitors to the community can get together, socialize and enjoy themselves.”
Hawkins first opened Gocha’s Breakfast Bar in 2019 on Cascade Rd. in South Fulton. Following its success, she opened a second location in Fayetteville. She also recently launched the Gocha’s Breakfast Bar food truck at the Cascade Rd. location. The truck shares the same operating hours as the restaurant and is also available for catering and special events.
