710 Ponce De Leon, NE; Poncey Highland
This café is one of those places that you could happily while away the entire day, starting with your morning coffee and Egg McMuff sandwich (soft scramble, cheddar, cilantro-Tabasco mayo, avocado—the works), which can be ordered at the counter. Pastry chef Sarah Dodge is something of a local hero: her breads—including her famous biscuit—and cinnamon rolls fly out the door every morning. Come evening, the outdoor patio turns into a lively spot for cheap Nicaraguan beer and strong mixed drinks—and, starting at 10 p.m., a late night menu of burgers and oysters.
Cacao
3035 Peachtree Rd., Suite A150, Buckhead
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, the 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 Inman Park and Virginia Highland).

dtox
1170 Howell Mill Rd., Knight Park
This sweet little juice bar, now three locations strong, first opened back in 2014 with a commitment to sourcing organic produce from local Georgia farmers and wholesalers. In addition to the requisite juices, smoothies, and elixirs, they have a small selection of solid food, including acai bowls, nori rolls, soups, and salads. Hard-core cleansers might want to try their pre-packaged juice cleanses and meal plans, served in their adorable (and signature) glass bottles. You can also find them in Piedmont Park and Chastain Park.
