Caffeine and Cocktails at Octane Coffee
As a freelance writer, I'm always looking for a place other than my couch to do work. My requirements are free wireless Internet, plenty of outlets and quality beverages. Octane Coffee succeeds on all fronts. Although they have locations throughout town and one in Alabama, the Grant Park one is my favorite. On any given morning, you will see every table covered in laptop computers of aspiring entrepreneurs, students or poor writers like myself. You'll find all the usual suspects: coffee, tea and hot chocolate. But what makes Octane different is that after 5 pm, it turns into a bar and serves dinner. Atlantans must know when to switch to the hard stuff. The Grant Park location also shares space with Little Tart Bakeshop, which serves up quiche, tarts, sandwiches and other sweets.

Craft Coffee & Cocktails at Octane Coffee Bar
Octane is a cafe and bakery by day, bar and lounge by night. No matter the time of day, Octane's trained staff is putting care into the details of their drinks down to the latte art. North Carolina's Counter Culture beans are the brand of choice to power the crafted cups of coffee. Little Tart Bakeshop shares the space and fills the pastry and snack selection with treats, croissants and quiches. At night, the small plates menu comes out as well as the beer, wine and cocktail list.
