Aurora Coffee

468 Moreland Avenue, Atlanta, GA, 30316


Opened in 1992 by a Seattle transplant, this fiercely independent operation has weathered many changes—including a sale to the owner of Criminal Records—but it has never deviated from its basic mission as a serious espresso bar.

Dancing Goats Coffee Bar

419 West Ponce de Leon Avenue, Decatur, GA, 30030


The original sleek, welcoming spot in Decatur is an outreach of the much smaller Batdorf & Bronson, a Washington State high-quality roaster whose nearly twenty-year presence in Atlanta helped spur our healthy espresso culture.

Java Jive

790 Ponce de Leon Avenue, Atlanta, GA, 30306


Steven Horwitz and Shira Levetan keep the neighborhood awake with strong coffee, fluffy biscuits, stacked pancakes, and fried matzo. We’ll brave long waits for the weekend-only gingerbread waffles with lemon curd.

Kung Fu Tea

5280 Buford Highway, Doraville, GA, 30340


This outpost of a growing New York–based chain looks like a cross between a slick coffee shop and (with planters of wheatgrass displayed on its counter) one of the many juice bars sprouting up across Atlanta.

1593 North Decatur Road*, Atlanta, GA, 30307

As the name implies, the orange-brown van looks a bit creaky. But the crackerjack baristas from Steady Hand Pour House deliver sterling cups of coffee as well as specials like herbed lemonade.
