Since 1992, Aurora has served as a central gathering spot for musicians, writers, academics, and passersby in need of a pick-me-up. The Little Five Points shop’s long-standing relationship with Batdorf & Bronson, and a crew of top-notch baristas have crafted a menu filled with full-bodied and highly-caffeinated coffee excellence. Stop in for a no-nonsense cup of espresso, cappuccino, or cold brew. Sweet and savory pastries including bagels from Emerald City, make for an excellent snack on the go, or a leisurely afternoon of stimulating conversation and people watching on the patio.

Decatur, GA 30033

Some may say that Waller’s is off the beaten path, tucked away at 240 Dekalb Industrial Blvd in Decatur. But, the unassuming location is one of its greatest assets. A bucolic creekside forest walk behind the shop is perfect when you need some Zen or bird watching with your cold brew or cortado (they serve Batdorf & Bronson). There’s a fridge full of craft beers and plenty of baked goods, snacks, and sandwiches behind the counter. The Outer Space Concert Stage behind the shop is regularly booked with local acts.
