Octane Coffee is a local chain of coffee shops in the Atlanta area. The original shop on Marietta Street opened in 2003, and Octane has since grown to four Atlanta locations and two in Birmingham. Octane is more than just a coffee shop, however, as our visit to its original location revealed. Both the exterior and the interior are brick, which we found warm and cozy. The rest of the interior is rather spartan, with no nonsense tables, chairs, and stools around the cafe. However, local art lines the walls of the coffee shop-Octane supports local art, so they host rotating art exhibits within the walls of the cafe. The left half of the bar serves coffee, while the right half of the bar serves local beer. Octane serves a standard line-up of coffee drinks with beans that they roast themselves. They also serve pastries and other small food items that typically go with coffee. Octane also has a variety of spirits, but their specialty is craft beer, especially local beer. Because of the different drinks Octane serves, it’s ideal place for studying, reading, or getting work done during the day, while also being a nice meeting spot for after-work get togethers. Parking is hard to find in the area, but the Westside location is a fun place to get work done or relax. Octane is a great local coffee shop so, when you’re in the mood for a good cup of coffee or want a cozy place for a little date, check out Octane.
