When another soulless condominium pops up, we go to Hodgepodge to remember that Atlanta’s best and weirdest aren’t going anywhere. This East Atlanta institution has been slinging amazing coffee, pastries, and sandwiches since 2012 and building a diverse community of artists and neighbors along the way. The airy space still displays art for sale on the walls and all kinds of local goods at the counter. You’ll find all the coffee classics, as well as some amazing specialty drinks (try anything with their housemade lavender syrup). And be sure to order one of Hodgepodge’s incredible housemade Pop-Tarts. Who says you can’t go home again?
