Why We Love It...
Well, it's not Starbucks. What it is, is a fantastic use of a historic building along South Atlanta Street that helps make the neighborhood a little cooler. The Coffee Shop oozes charm and personality. The staff is always great and there is atmosphere with live music on the weekends.
Up until the opening of Roswell Provisions, there wasn't really a good, local option for Coffee in the historic district aside from LOATH.
They also buy their coffee exclusively from growers in Rwanda and pay higher than fair trade prices for it. You can learn more about those efforts at their website, www.drinkcoffeedogood.com.
What We Would Change...
There's not much we would change about the coffee house itself or the business. However, it is a little difficult to get to on foot and it's at the southern end of the historic district. If I could do anything, I'd move the entire house to somewhere on the square. But, since that's not possible, we'll keep it just the way it is.
