Octane 1.JPG

The Low Down:

There are many times where Octane in Grant Park has become my office. I have spent hours on end drinking their scrumptious coffee, roasted in house, and devouring baked goodies from Little Tart Bake Shop. With locations all around Atlanta, Octane has become an Atlanta staple. It doubles as a bar so you can grab yourself some coffee or a well crafted drink. If you're going to the Grant Park location come early as parking usually fills up fast. This location also shares a space with Little Tart Bake Shop so y'know what that means...a never ending goodness of baked deliciousness to go along with your coffee.

Condessa does a job well done. With two locations in the city, knowledgable baristas, good coffee, and yummy food it checks all the boxes.

Brash Coffee has managed to pack minimalist design, modern vibes and well crafted coffee inside a small shipping container...and it's awesome. Located in West Side Provisions, this place is a no frills, quality shop. It's a great idea to begin your morning here and spend the rest of the afternoon shopping in the district.
