Do the Percolator
Atlanta suffers with an overabundance of chain coffee shops, hence Starbucks galore. Yet a few privately owned java stores have opened with success in our city, getting raves from metro-dwellers who prefer to deviate from the norm. Iíve got the scoop on the newest one percolating soon near you.
Inman Perk Coffee has opened one location in Flowery Branch, and is opening another store in Inman Park. The Inman Park store will open on Elizabeth Street; both coffee shops are family owned. I had a chance to speak with manager Guy Ettinger, and he explained the Inman Park location would have slightly different hours and even more enticing coffee drinks for us city folks.
Inman Perk coffee concoctions come in simple small, medium, and large sizes. Donít worry about getting the lingo down for your double-venti-choco-latte-dry-soy-blah blah at Inman Perk. Options include espresso, cappuccino, turtle mocha (yum), several iced drinks, and many other coffees for your pleasure. Sweet treats round out the menu with pastries and a specialty PB & J sandwich. I had a latte with a vanilla shot on my first visit to Inman Perk that was excellent.
The Flowery Branch location is coming up in blooms. Local Atlanta artist Sabrina Sextonís first public photography exhibit ëPetalsí features her delicate photographs of beautiful and exotic flowers. Proceeds from each sale benefit the National Prostate Coalition. Soon you can check out her work online @ www.sugar7.com
