Hodgepodge Coffeehouse is a black woman-owned business, based out of Atlanta, GA. Homey, art-filled coffee shop with sandwiches, from-scratch baked goods. Big floor-to-ceiling windows facing the street where sunlight comes through during the day. I love to take my laptop and work at this coffee shop, there’s a good distance between each table to give you personal space.

Cafe Blue uses JAMAICA BLUE MOUNTAIN COFFEE, which is extremely limited in production and about 80% of each year’s crop went to only Japan for 10+ years!
Cafe Blue has very high quality and unique specialty tea lattes with beautiful colors and floral ingredients.
An artsy wooden vibe interior, it would be perfect if it has more windows for people who enjoy the sunlight. Highly recommended to come for their specialty coffee lattes. Check out their Instagram for the beautiful color of the drinks!
Excellent place to do work during winter time and to stay indoor.
Address: 2005 Boggs Rd NW Suite 100, Duluth, GA 30096
Lovely local community coffee shop with hand-crafted goods located at McDonough, suburb area a little south past Atlanta, GA. My No.1 favorite coffee shop to work outdoor while enjoying the sunlight and summer breeze.
Address: 58 Griffin St, McDonough, GA 30253
A well-hidden AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL coffee shop right next to the river. Be aware, it could be hard to get in since it’s inside the residency neighborhood. You’ll have to tell the security guard you’re here for the coffee shop. It gets busier towards late afternoon and might be hard to get in. They have very limited parking space but are worth trying early in the morning.

I personally love having enough personal space with sunlight coming through and surrounding by the nature, kinda in-between city and suburb. Not every coffee shop is located in the city, however, I hope you find it helpful and gives you an idea of which coffee shop to visit while you’re in GA!
