A Guide to Buckhead Coffee Shops
Tucked inside the Atlanta History Center, Brash is a beloved hallmark among Buckhead coffee shops, given its sophisticated atmosphere, abundance of seating arrangements, earnestly stocked bookshelves, art-dappled walls, and gourmet java that’s been diligently roasted in-house. The attention to detail that has gone into designing this space with a delightful balance of charm and utility makes it an easy go-to for meetings with colleagues, long overdue coffee dates, solo study sessions, and unwinding after learning about Atlanta’s rich history.
Located in the Atlanta Tech Village – a startup hub home to some of the brightest and most talented companies in the world – Kula offers guests a bright bohemian ambiance, warm earthy tones set against minimalistic white walls, chic furnishings, amenities for a productive day, unmatched networking opportunities, and the steady background hum of creatives sharing ideas. Moreover, the cafe is operated by the Kula Project, a non-profit focused on eradicating poverty through the development of entrepreneurs in Rwanda’s coffee communities.
Snuggled amidst the shops lining Lenox Village, Garnet Gal’s is a relaxed hangout with art-speckled walls and wooden tabletops. The soothing decor serves as an accomplice to thoughtfully crafted, rewardingly delicious coffee beverages like the Honey Lavender Latte and Ginger Honey Cinnamon Latte. They’re also known for having scrumptious baked goods (vegan and gluten-free options available) made in-house with freshly milled organic wheat, grains, and beans for lovely tastes and textures; that being said, don’t skip the hand pies!
Opened in the Spring of 2018, Dancing Goats Coffee Bar at The Exchange boasts a modern design and comfortable atmosphere that is perfect for visiting with friends or reading a book. Stop in for handcrafted espresso drinks, coffee beans for home brewing, and pastries from local bakeries.
Dancing Goats wouldn’t exist without a home- and they’ve got two. Though Olympia is their birthplace, they’ve been in Atlanta for over 25 years. In addition to turning out world-class java, the roastery is dedicated to low-impact sustainability practices, more particularly, it is 100% green powered, puts power back on the grid, has near-zero landfill waste, and is near 100% composting and recycling.
Buckhead Village is a shopping and dining destination featuring retail from the world’s top fashion houses and emerging artisans, decadent global culinary adventures, and wellness classes and experiences. The shopping destination offers guests a stylish and welcoming haven with cobblestone streets, outdoor communal spaces with lush greenery and bold, European-inspired design. This covered, 1,960-square-foot Veranda can be found near the corner of Bolling Way and Buckhead Avenue, across from Le Bilboquet, and treats visitors to a comfortable place to gather and linger. It’s also utilized for on-site performances, special events, tastings, and resting between perusing through shops.
Considering they operate a few coffee shops in Atlanta, you’ve probably already spotted a Caribou near you, some stores provide guests a reliable work and gathering space with tables to sit down at and stay awhile, while others are grab & go oriented. Along with mochas, lattes, and bubble teas, they’ve got toasted bagels, breakfast sandwiches, and baked treats.
