Atlanta coffee was nothing but perked dishwater until Aurora Coffee opened in 1992. The Little Five Points location wasn't designed as a cozy hangout. Since the folks who own Criminal Records took over, however, the cool-slacker service has gotten friendlier and there is Wi-Fi. The quality of the brew — Aurora's blend of beans from Batdorf & Bronson's Atlanta roastery — is exceptional. Food is limited to excellent fresh pastries.

Skewered meats, sliced at the table churrasco-style — by costumed gauchos wielding gleaming knives — are the centerpiece of the upscale Brazilian import. Beef and lamb shouldn't be missed. Prices are fixed, portions unlimited. The salad bar features asparagus, hearts of palm, fresh cheese, and similarly luxurious items. Even desserts (which cost extra) are worth the calories.
Located in a former New Age bookstore, this cavernous and modestly decorated Ethiopian eatery offers a standard introduction to this lesser known cuisine. There are no forks, gang. Use the spongy injera flatbread to scoop up gently spiced veggies (carrots, cabbage, collards) and lamb dishes. This place gives a whole new meaning to "finger food."
