As someone who works from home, I try to get out of the house whenever possible. Whether it’s just to step away to run an errand or two, or to really spend some time away from my desk to work elsewhere, it’s essential.
I find it crucial to get out whenever possible as working from home, solo, can be isolating. I’ll be honest though, I find it hard to work away from my place since my desk is all set up nicely with a big monitor and keyboard.
Also, my fridge is stocked and the coffee is free…. I definitely prefer that set up over a laptop at a coffee shop. But to me, it’s important to at least TRY to get out whenever possible. So I’ve been on the hunt for the best Atlanta coffee shops and have found several favorites.
The 7 Best Coffee Shops In Atlanta
1. Little Tart Bakeshop (multiple locations)
A lot of the coffee shops listed here source their baked goods from Little Tart Bakery. They’re just that damn good. But Little Tart has several locations throughout Atlanta. One in Krog Street, Summerhill and Grant Park.
I personally love their morning bun and an oat milk latte. Their coffee shops are always thoughtfully decorated with fun wallpaper and pretty design elements. There are also always plenty of spots to post up with your laptop to get a little work done.
2. Chrome Yellow Trading
A gem of a spot on Edgewood that is probably my number one favorite on this list. Recommended by a friend, this little coffee shop is a design dream. Oh, and the coffee is hands down the best on this list too.
The spot is also a store with local goods from stationary to clothing. This may be one of my favorite Atlanta coffee shops to be honest, don’t tell the others.
Address // 501 Edgewood Ave SE
3. Star Provisions
Star Provisions has been one of my most favorite places in the city for years. It’s the closest thing to a European sandwich and bakery shop. Between the omelet baguette sandwich to
Their lattes are delicious, baked goods are just as good and plenty of space to work.
Address // 1460 Ellsworth Industrial Blvd.
4. Brash Coffee (multiple locations)
This place gets on the list simply because it’s cool and unique. The original location is at Westside Provisions. They transformed a shipping container into an airy, bright coffee shop. Not sure how the hell they did it, but it’s beautiful.
The space is small, so it can be tough to get a seat and work, but it’s still a great spot to grab a coffee and sweet treat before walking around to do some shopping.
I also love the Brash Coffee that’s inside the Atlanta History Center. It’s next to Souper Jenny’s which is a go to lunch spot for me in Buckhead. I like to grab lunch and work, or go early and grab a coffee and await hunger to strike!
There are several locations throughout the city.
5. Inman Perk
Inman Park continues to be my all time favorite neighborhood in Atlanta. This coffee shop is probably one of the most popular ones for folks to come and work. I mean 90% of the coffee shop are long tables with plugs to charge your computer.
They have a variety of food and snacks and I usually grab a fruit and yogurt parfait along with a dirty chai latte. If you get tired of working, you can hop on over to the dozens of restaurants around there to grab lunch or dinner. It makes for a great afternoon of a little work and a little play.
Address // 240 North Highland Ave NE
6. Dancing Goats (multiple locations)
I personally love the
7. East Pole Coffee Shop
For those of you in Buckhead, East Pole is your coffee shop. Located off of Ottley, next to Sweetwater 420, you can time your afternoon espresso and work session with a beer tasting next door.
East Pole has a variety of espresso drinks, pastries and plenty of space to bring your laptop.
Address // 255 Ottley Dr NE #105, Atlanta, GA 30324
