who we are
We are a fast-casual farm-to-table restaurant focusing on authentic savory soul food and the use of innovative technology to provide a unique and family friendly dining experience. We’re proud to source all of our ingredients from local farmers and shops. Our food is always fresh because we prepare our meals around the clock with great love and care.
We specialize in cornbread, of course. We love good food so we obsess over every detail of each meal. From the first ingredient, to the right combination of seasoning, to the final product, we’ve worked hard to develop the flavor profiles of every single dish.

Cornbread represents the realization of Adenah’s vision of creating an innovative soul food restaurant concept where families and friends can gather and feel good about the food that they eat and where employees are truly valued and empowered. Inspired by her grandmother, a farmer and restaurant owner, Cornbread exemplifies Adenah’s philosophy that savory and authentic food can be healthy and responsibly sourced. As a self-made restaurateur and real estate developer, Adenah has built a successful business model around investing not only in her employees, but also in the communities where she does business.
Zadie Smith is a pioneering entrepreneur who discovered her love of cooking at an early age from her parents in Tifton, Georgia and has been in the kitchen ever since. She brings that passion for cooking and lifelong culinary experience to Cornbread where she was instrumental in developing the menu and flavor profiles of each meal that we serve. In addition to her childcare and real estate businesses, through a “labor of love” Zadie has added a new dimension to her life story: co-founder of Cornbread.
