Best Atlanta Coffee Shops

Here’s Our List Of The Best Atlanta Coffee Shops

Because house hunting is just better after a really good cup of coffee, we’re sharing our list of the best Atlanta coffee shops.

Meeting home buyers and renters over coffee is a practical and comfortable way to understand more about their real estate hopes, dreams and priorities. And often, a big priority is finding a home in a neighborhood with an excellent independent coffee shop nearby.

So for all you coffee lovers, here are the 10 Best Atlanta coffee shops and the neighborhoods they benefit:

1. Buteco Coffee & Bar

First on our 2019 list of best Atlanta coffee shops is Buteco Coffee & Bar in the Beacon Atlanta development near the Beltline in Grant Park.

It’s a bright and genuine place where everything tastes amazing. Great coffee is only a part of what makes a visit to Buteco enjoyable.

Buteco brings a Brazilian vibe to Grant Park coffee lovers.

If you feel a certain Brazilian vibe when you walk it’s to be expected. Owner and general manager Rafa Pereira hales from Brazil and has brought us the ideal combination coffee shop and bar. We know, it’s not often a place can be both. But Buteco succeeds.

The place has a neighborly welcoming feeling and in addition to amazing coffee, they serve up a fantastic list of Brazilian street snacks.

Begin your home search here with a Cortado. And after buying your home, come back for Caipirinhas!

2. Dairies Coffeehouse And Cold Brew Bar

A close second this year is Dairies Coffeehouse and Cold Brew Bar in Reynoldstown.

Right away let’s call out what makes a visit here special. Namely, the cold brew bar. Yep just like the name says. In addition to all the outstanding coffee, tea and food you’d expect at one of the best coffee houses in Atlanta, this place delivers on cold brew and nitro like nowhere else.

The atmosphere here is pretty inviting. There are comfortable sofas for chatting over a cold brew plus table seating for when you want to sit and work a bit or have a meal. Plus there is also an outdoor seating area which is perfect for working or relaxing.

3. Ebrik Coffee Room

Moving up on our list in 2019 is Ebrik Coffee Room. Ebrik serves Downtown Atlanta residents, students and workers alike. Here you can have a cardamom infused Turkish coffee and browse their extensive book collection or meet someone new.

When you walk in you immediately feel that this is a genuine community coffee house. Ebrik has what so many other trendy coffee places are striving for – namely, genuine culture and a unique coffee experience.

4. Joe’s East Atlanta Coffee Shop

When we’re in East Atlanta (which seems to be more often these days!) you can find us at Joe’s. This place has been serving up amazing coffee and tasty treats since the early days of a renaissance that made EAV the darling of developers and entrepreneurs alike.

Joe’s is a warm and cozy favorite in East Atlanta.

Joe’s is located in an old commercial building with heavily worn wide plank floors, and exposed brick walls and ceiling trusses. The space is warm and cozy like an old flannel shirt, filled with over-size sofas, chairs and occasional tables of every description.

5. Urban Grind

Urban Grind, in the heart of Atlanta’s West Midtown Atlanta area, is the total package. The space is warm and inviting, with lots of comfy seating, rotating displays of quality art, and community events like Wednesday open mike nights. They serve breakfast, paninis and deli sandwiches and of course, great coffee.

6. Chrome Yellow Trading “CYT”

Chrome Yellow Trading (“CYT”) in trendy Old Fourth Ward (“O4W”) is the kind of place you would expect to see Jerry Seinfeld, a cool car, and a buddy, having serious coffee. The all black exterior hints at the lean, clean, meticulously designed interior. This shop is so beautiful, that their Facebook page lists rules for photographers. They take coffee seriously.

Trendy …. CYT in O4W.

7. Octane

Octane sits across the street from Atlanta’s historic Oakland Cemetery in Grant Park. We love the bright open loft style space with massive windows. It really connects you to the vibe of the neighborhood.

And if you’d like a little something sweet with your coffee, you’ll love that the space is shared with French pastry shop Little Tart.

8. Java Cats

Also located in Grant Park is Java Cats which gives patrons a chance to satisfy their feline itch along with their caffeine. For $10 you can visit with the kitties, kept in a separate room, or adopt one. They normally find homes for about 200 cats a year.

Since Dave is a Realtor and a cat person, he likes helping both people and cats find new homes. So it’s not surprising to see that Java Cats made the list of our favorite Intown Atlanta coffee shops.

9. Park Grounds

Prefer dogs? Well then check out Atlanta’s most dog-friendly coffeehouse Park Grounds. Here you can let your dog play in the enclosed dog-park while you sip your favorite coffee drink. Perfect.

Park Grounds is located in Reynoldstown, one of the best dog friendly Atlanta neighborhoods. So if you’re a “dog person” like Jeff, take your bestie to Park Grounds for coffee and play time!

10. Inman Perk

If you need a perk-me-up after a stroll on the Beltline, stop in at Inman Perk. It’s located in, you guessed it, Inman Park.

This little European style shop offers sidewalk café tables for some of the best people watching in the city. Inside, it packs an amazing variety of specialty coffee drinks, baked goodies, breakfast and lunch all day long.

Honorable Mentions:

San Francisco Coffee

One of the first “third-wave” coffee shops in the city and always a good choice for a decent cup of coffee is San Francisco Coffee. We like the freshly roasted organic fair-trade coffee. Plus you can usually find a delightful something to nibble often with locally sourced seasonal ingredients.

And as Intown Atlanta Realtors, we appreciate that they have cafes where we often work: Virginia-Highland, Poncey-Highland and Candler Park.

Dancing Goats

And finally, Dancing Goats remains one of our favorite Intown Atlanta coffee shop destinations. There are currently four locations in neighborhoods where we often work: O4W, Midtown, Buckhead and Decatur. They serve up a bold and toasty house blend with hints of chocolate and spice from award winning coffee roasters, Batdorf & Bronson. We especially like the spacious patio at the O4W location in Ponce City Market.
