A Decatur fixture since 1993, this is more than your average coffee shop. While the bar sells wine and beer along with coffee drinks and the pastry case turns out truly great sandwiches, twentysomethings and hipsters flock for the daily live music and poetry readings in the bohemian atmosphere.
This department store is for post-ironic, Gen-Y urban hipsters, with clothes, kitschy housewares, smoking supplies, a bit of kinky gear, and oh-so-much more. It's been named one of the "25 best independent stores in America."
Savage Pizza is among the best local sources of real, hand-thrown, honest-to-Palermo pizza. This slightly bent independent in Little Five Points is notable for fresh ingredients, homemade sauces, and clever, knowing service. Wide selection of toppings and calzone fillings. Good for takeout.
