cup of ATL

JAVAMONKEY | decatur

The first time I visited downtown Decatur, I was caught up in its small town feel as if I had stumbled walked onto the set of some storyline. You can always find twinkle lights strung across store fronts and families huddled in corners of restaurants or high school students with books spilling out of backpacks onto benches. It’s noisy and beautiful and just short drive from downtown Atlanta.

JavaMonkey has held that quintessential charm since 1993, with plenty of room indoors for those studying or catching up, and a stage and patio outdoors for music, open mic nights, and poetry slams. It has bohemian creativity oozing out of its bright walls and some darn good coffee while it’s at it.

Here’s the gist //

Location
425 Church Street, Decatur, GA 30030

The Hours
M – F: 630 am – 12 am | Sa – Su: 730 am – 12 am

Beans
They sparkle up those Counter Culture beans just to your liking.

Signature
Good coffee, good wine, and the kinda space that makes you feel like there’s a little magic in the air. It’s probably the music trickling in as people go in and out. This place is particularly enchanting on early fall evenings.

Feast
Sandwiches, juices, and pastries. You won’t go hungry. Don’t worry. There’s a full wine and beer bar that is perfect side for listening to tunes on the patio.

Know Before You Go
Decatur does take some parking prowess. There are some lots that are pay/depending on the day at Decatur Presbyterian Church. You can also find paid 2-hour street parking which is free after 6 pm or on Sunday.

Monday nights are open mic for music and poetry and always a surprise. Sign up starts at 7 pm.

My Order
Vanilla Latte, side of chocolate covered espresso beans

Get the social latest.
