Batdorf & Bronson
Just east of Capitol Lake Park, this downtown coffee shop is home to what many consider the best brew in the city. Now a small chain—which includes one branch in Decatur, Georgia—Batdorf & Bronson roasts and serves fair trade coffee from growing regions around the world, including Costa Rica, Colombia, Indonesia, and Kenya. At this flagship location, the shop’s interior is large and inviting, with a high ceiling, oversize leather couches, a fireplace, and free Wi-Fi. In addition to coffee drinks like espressos and vanilla lattes, the menu also includes fresh baked goods such as apple pumpkin muffins.
