All I can say is we’re not in DC anymore!
Location:790 Huff Rd. NW Atlanta, GA 30318 (they have two locations though- note that the other location is only open to the public Monday-Friday…don’t make my mistake!)
Vibe: As soon as I walked up and saw the marquee lights that said open, I knew I would love this place. When you walk through the doors you feel as though you’ve walked into an alternate universe, almost like a man cave meets a beautiful architectural space with taxidermy. It’s really relaxed and a beautiful space that doesn’t look anything like its exterior.
Wifi: I didn’t use it, but apparently there’s good wifi!
Hours: Monday-Saturday: 7AM-10PM, Sunday: 9AM-9PM
Coffee & Food: I had been aching for a mocha since it had been quite some time since I had had one (aka 2 weeks!). Therefore, as soon as I took a sip, I was brought back to equilibrium. There was an abundance of foam (#foamwhore) which made me incredibly happy. It was also perfectly balanced between coffee and chocolate and was the ideal temperature. Needless to say, I was beyond pleased. As for the food, I was starving by the time I got there. When I saw the food options, I wasn’t thrilled as I was looking for something a little more substantial than a muffin or sugary roll. I opted for the ham and cheese croissant, and even though I’m not a ham girl, man it was good. It was really buttery and soft and as soon as you got to the middle, oh it was heaven.
Music: The barista had on St. Paul and the Broken Bones (one of my mom’s favorites!- she came with me). It definitely fit the mood of the place: a little dark with tons of soul and character. I added some of my favorite tracks from the album to the Musings over Mochas Spotify playlist.
Pricing: Since my mama paid, I didn’t pay a whole lot of attention, but our total (two coffees, two ham&cheese croissants) came out to about $18 bucks, so each component was about $4.50- pretty standard.
Seating: Tons. Inside, outside. Chairs with tables, chairs without tables. Individual, group. Whatever kind of seating you want, they have. I went on a Sunday and it was empty, but the barista said it gets pretty full during the weeks, which was no shock.
Overall: I LOVE this place. It’s been a little tough finding coffee that’s up to par to feature here on Musings over Mochas, so I was so excited when I stumbled upon this place. The vibe is great, the coffee is scrumptious and it’s nestled in a cute area. If you haven’t explored the surrounding area, it’s a must, filled with an idyllic farmers market on Sundays and some of the most charming stores I’ve seen in a while. It gave me some hope for Atlanta. I mean it might have been the taxidermy (I have a major thing for it… but only when you dress it up with costumes and jewels… is that weird? Don’t hold it against me, okay?). I seriously thought about staying there all day I loved it so much.
Insider Tip: This is their second location. At their first location, you can actually sit along the Chattahoochee River and sip your coffee (hence the name!)
