Whether you’re in search of a quiet cafe to bust out a project for work or just a great place to meet up with friends, Alta at Jonquil puts you in position to enjoy the best coffee shops nearby. Here are five of our favorites.

1. Chattahoochee Coffee Company

One of the best-kept-secrets in Atlanta, this is a cafe where you need someone to let you in. Chattahoochee Coffee Company is located inside Walton’s gated community, just a few feet from the entrance. The cafe has a mountain lodge style and is situated alongside the Chattahoochee with a porch that offers stunning river vistas. Visitors can only enter by dialing from the call box at the gate and then waiting for someone at the coffee shop to buzz them through. But don’t be deterred! This coffee is worth the wait.

2. Starbucks

Let’s get this one out of the way. Yes, we love our local coffee shops, but sometimes when you need caffeine, a reliable WiFi connection, and a consistent grind that always hits the spot, Starbucks is sure to deliver.

3. Cafe Lucia

Cafe Lucia is an intimate shop with delicious coffee and even better treats. Located just two blocks around the Smyrna Library, it’s a great place to find the quiet and cozy atmosphere you need to kick back and relax. In addition to Smyrna’s best brew, their breakfast and lunch menu are simply amazing. Sammies, french toast, pastries, even ice cream and wine are just a few of the items you should try. Whether you need your morning joe, an afternoon espresso shot to keep you going, or a refreshing beer to wrap up your day, you are sure to love Cafe Lucia.

4. Rev Coffee

Tasty beverages, good vibes, and fun-filled events – like Rev Fest – are waiting for you at Rev Coffee. Here, they make a statement with every beverage they pour: sourcing, roasting, and preparing coffee that pushes the boundaries of exceptional quality. They know how to make coffee, and they make it well. It’s so good, they even have a blog to share their vast knowledge.
