Inman Park Specialty
Cacao Inman Park
299 N. Highland Ave., Inman Park
Cacao founder Kristen Hard is a bit of a local hero—she opened her shop after taking a sabbatical from her law studies to travel (including working as a chef on a yacht). Hard is one of the only “bean-to-bar” producers in the region, which means she sources the beans herself, then roasts and shells them in-house. The result is ridiculously complex chocolate that you can really only get in Atlanta. (There are also locations in Buckhead and Virginia Highland).
Krog Street Market
99 Krog St., Inman Park
Like a smaller version of Ponce City Market, Krog Street is filled with tiny purveyors selling everything from flowers, baked goods, and chocolate to ice cream, bbq, and locally brewed beer. It’s also home to some of our favorite restaurants in the city (notably, the Luminary and Superica). The entire operation is located just off the Beltline, so it’s easy to ride your bike here at all hours. P.S. Jane’s Bakeshop has great lattes.
Kale Me Crazy
300 N. Highland Ave. NE, Inman Park
If there was a #goophq in Atlanta, we’d lobby for it to be next door to this place—their detox-friendly salads and wraps are exactly what we want to eat for lunch (plus the smoothies, acai bowls, and juices make it a morning staple, too). With a highly successful franchise program underway, outposts are basically taking over the city, though the original is in Inman Park.
