The Market Hall at Halcyon is a relatively newer food hall in the metro Atlanta area, having opened in 2019. It is located in Halcyon, a 135-acre mixed-use development in Alpharetta, serving as a destination for food, drink and shopping. Created to serve Alpharetta as the response to the rise of urban food halls as the new “food courts of the 21st century,” the Market Hall at Halcyon offers lots of trendy fast-casual options for those who want to grab a quick bite, relax and mix and mingle without needing to formally dine in (if you are looking for dine-in options, Halcyon has plenty of those as well!). Below, you’ll find a definitive guide to all of the Market Hall at Halcyon’s food stall options.

CT Al Pastor Taqueria

Family-owned CT Restaurant Group already had a popular restaurant in Halcyon called CT Cantina & Taqueria, and by popular demand, recently opened a “taco stand” in Market Hall at Halycon in the form of CT Al Pastor Taqueria. If you’re looking for authentic street tacos on handmade tortillas, you’ll have to check out CT Al Pastor (and while you’re at it, we definitely recommend the Al Pastor taco!). They also offer many agua fresca options, with flavors from strawberry to maracuya passionfruit.

Gu’s Dumplings

Yvonne Gu Khan and her husband Zahed Khan first had the idea to expand Gu’s Bistro, which was located on Buford Highway, to Krog Street Market in the form of Gu’s Dumplings. Now also open at Market Hall at Halcyon, Gu’s Dumplings serves Zhong-style dumplings, Chengdu cold noodles and other Szechuan delicacies. Since opening Gu’s Dumplings, Gu’s Bistro has been revitalized and reimagined in a new location called Gu’s Kitchen, in Chamblee on Buford Highway.

Holmes Slice

A self-proclaimed “west coast-inspired pizza joint,” Holmes Slice is owned by chef Taylor Neary and offers wood-fired pizza in three different styles: New York, West Coast and Napoletana. Order pizzas, with flavors including Buff Daddy and Proper Zah, by the slice or by the entire pie in 14″ or 12″ versions. Holmes Slice also offers a cauliflower crust option. Pair the pizza with many cocktail options, as well as beer and wine.

The Original Hot Dog Factory

The Original Hot Dog Factory is owned by entrepreneur Dennis McKinley, known for “Real Housewives of Atlanta” fame. This Atlanta-based hot dog company is fast-growing with 23 locations around the country, and one of its latest is in the Market Hall at Halcyon. Relish these upscale hot dogs in a fast-casual setting, with flavors including All-American, Detroit Coney, Carolina Slaw Dog, Taco Dog, Texas Rodeo, Surf and Turf Dog and more.

PITA Mediterranean Street Food

Owned by Nour Rabai and started in Georgia, PITA Mediterranean Street Food is growing fast in the Southeast and Midwest. One of their newest locations is in the Market Hall at Halcyon. You’ll find authentic Mediterranean cuisine, including shawarma and gyro sandwiches, as well as falafel, salad and hummus, at PITA Mediterranean Street Food, which prides itself on great food at affordable prices and great care.

Sweet Tuna Hawaiian Fresh Poke

Build your own poke bowl at Sweet Tuna Hawaiian Fresh Poke, located at Market Hall at Halcyon. From locally sourced produce to plenty of vegetable options and flavorful sauces, you’ll be able to create a customized bowl that serves as “fast food without compromises.”

FUEL Coffee Cafe

One of the newer additions to Market Hall at Halcyon is FUEL Coffee Cafe, which may be easy to miss when you first walk into the market, as it is not located next to the other food stalls. On the menu, you’ll find drinks that will be sure to fuel you up for the day, with names such as Diesel, Jet Fuel, Super Sport and Super Veloce.


This iconic chocolate shop that has been around since 1947 has accessible doors that lead to Market Hall at Halcyon. This sweet setup means that you can grab some chocolate and confectionaries and enjoy them on the Market Hall benches. Kilwin’s famous ice cream, caramel apples, fudge or truffles will certainly be a treat.
