If you could take just one photo: the lounge of satisfied, quirky locals
If you're looking for a real Atlanta scene with a dash of New York's East Village, park your pants in Octane Coffee. The walls feature works of local artists for sale, and the bar hosts the occasional latte art competition where amateurs and pros alike compete with their fanciest foamy creations, but these offbeat touches are accompanied by a truly Southern vibe of warmth and welcome, rather than the sigh and stinkeye you might expect at similar spots in New York. Excellent people-watching and a great cup of coffee, whether you prefer the standard cappuccino and espresso or a stronger French press. They also serve snacks and sweets, including frozen treats from local icon The King of Pops.May 11, 2012 Like Add a Comment
