Best Coffee Shops in Atlanta
Neighborhood: Old Fourth Ward
Address: 501 Edgewood Ave SE, Atlanta, GA, 30312
What Makes this Place Special: The menu at Chrome Yellow is a crowd-pleaser. With milky beverages, a variety of tea, seasonal surprises, and both sweet and savory snacks, this pleasant spot right on Edgewood Ave functions as a great coffee shop to do work in when you need a change of scenery. The neutral palette inside creates a calming effect, and outside you’ll find tables for those times when you crave fresh air and sun. Plus, it boasts a small shop with thoughtfully-crafted goods. Chrome Yellow is a lovely cafe to stay for a while.
What to Order: If you’re looking for a latte, the Vanilla Bourbon Latte is a must. It’s indulgent without being too sweet, a truly delicate balance.
Address: 181 Flat Shoals Ave SE Unit 1, Atlanta, GA 30316
What Makes this Place Special: Con Leche is a real gem, tucked away in the always delightful, Reynoldstown neighborhood. Accessible by bike, car, and foot (just a few blocks from the BeltLine), Patrons come to the charming Con Leche for its stellar coffee, top-notch toast, and daily deliveries from Casa Cardoza (truly some of the tastiest empanadas). Con Leche’s got a handful of seats outdoors, so roll on up and plan to spend some time soaking in the sun, especially in sweater weather.
What to Order: Grab one of their seasonal lattes and a bean and cheese empanada (trust us!). It’s so, so good.
East Pole Coffee Co.
Neighborhood: Poncey-Highland and Lower Buckhead
Address: 255 Ottley Dr NE #105, Atlanta, GA 30324 and 676 North Highland Avenue Northeast, Atlanta, GA 30306

The Little Tart Bakeshop

Address: 437 Memorial Drive SE, Atlanta, GA 30312
What Makes this Place Special: The Little Tart Bakeshop, affectionately known as Little Tart, is an Atlanta staple (and one of our absolute favorites). In the morning, swing by for baked goods that will make you swoon. In the afternoon, pivot to a glass of sparkling chardonnay and a side of marinated olives and savory sables. Their Grant Park and Summerhill locations are cozy and warm, and ideal for coworking, or swinging by with friends.
