Great ambiance, although very difficult to find a open table. 8-10 beers on draft offered, but those that are available are solid. Great coffee drinks too.

Cool coffee bar across the street from Five Seasons westside and Hop City - with those two business, forms Atlantaís "Beer"muda Triangle (so they call themselves). Cool open place, free wi-fi, delicious coffee and espresso drinks (though extremely expensive) and an excellent selection of draft beers, too!

OK, so itís the best coffee in town - subjectively - they win Creative Loafing every year as well as the southern regional of the barista competition - so itís worth the trip for that alone. Add in 10 or so great craft beers on tap and itís simply not fair. Last time I went I had the Bellís Hopslam and the Gouden Carolus Van de Kaizen - at one place! Plus, itís across the street from the best beer store in town - Hop City. Apparently they have food - didnít notice. I was too busy drinking!

This rating would be more appropriate on CoffeeGeek than on Ratebeer. The beer list at Octane is okay for a coffee shop. You can definitely find good beer here. But they are one of the best coffee shops in the South and thatís a much better reason to visit.

Squirreled away on Howell Mill between the Atlanta Humane Society and Georgia Tech, Octane Coffee Bar & Lounge is worth finding. Parking is a bit scanty, but it is convenient to at least one MARTA bus route. The food selection is no great shakes, but what they have is tasty and reasonably priced. It is their beer selection that does my heart glad - all microbrews and imports, and not one American big brand! Octane is small and does not have a lot of seating, but it is a good site for a small or medium gathering such as a Meetup. The alternative music they play is not too loud so you can have a good conversation. This joint is popular with geeks one can always see plenty of laptops.
