    Some of the best espresso drinks and pastries in ATL. I recommend the kouign-amann paired with a cappuccino.

    A really good place to study! Long tables, great coffee and baked goods. The chocolate chip cookie was 80% dark chocolate. Amazing. And their soup of the day was delicious too.

    Fantastic coffee, fantastic, pastries. Some outdoor seating; good place to work or relax, although somewhat of a hard atmosphere

    Octane is the perfect spot for coffee and pastries. They roast their own beans in-house, so whether you want a simple pour-over or their complex "carmelatto," you can't go wrong. Read more

    I flew into Atlanta on a business trip and came across Octane+Tart on a hunt for a good, local coffee shop. It did not disappoint! I ordered a sandwich, latte and cookie -- all three were delightful.

    Once the Bake Shop closes you cannot order Granola with Milk despite both ingredients being within view of the cash register. It was really off-putting; doubt I'll go back.

    I'm not a Coffee lover at all, but I do love croissants and Octans are second to none, not the mentions there on CL's list for eats-b4-Udie must try!

    If you like flavourful, freshly ground coffee or espresso that is made to order, Octane is hands down, the best place to go to in Atlanta. Great coffee place and they know exactly what they're doing

    Pour-over is the method of choice in this establishment, and the curated offerings of African & South American java fair are prepared consciously to deliver the actual nuances that good coffee offers

    This is my favorite coffee shop (and bakery!) in all of Atlanta. Octane's iced coffee is my go-to. At Little Tart, make sure to try an almond croissant. Or any variety of croissant, for that matter.

    The almond croissants are impossibly flaky and creamy in the middle from a spread of bourbon-infused frangipane, and they also benefit from a spritz of bourbon syrup. Read more
