Poor customer service, notably from the newer, younger guy with all of the bracelets on his wrists and a flag hanging from his pocket - is that a thing? Is that sanitary at a coffee shop?I had hoped that this coffeeshop would do well since its been there so long - 10 years I believe. But when you walk in and the young guy at the counter doesn't speak to you and you are the only customer - then something is seriously wrong with their customer service. I have watched him have issues with customers in the morning, and then when the owner walks in, he presents the issue to the owner as if the customer was at fault. Crazy.As a foodie and a coffee snob, I would recommend that you try Revelator or Drip. I like Revelator for their minimalist vibe. I also love Drip and the people there are at lot nicer than the Urban Grind. :) Condessa was nice also - I visited their location which is closer to Georgia State University.By the way, I have frequented the Urban Grind for 10 years. And some of the reviews listed here are correct. The Urban Grind can be cozy. But customer service and cleanliness are issues if you really look behind that counter when certain baristas are working. The OGs are nice for the most part. This shop is past its prime and has become more of an event space than a place where you go and enjoy coffee.What's good about the Urban Grind: Going on a slow day and sitting towards the back in one of the new high top seats and staring out the window and letting time pass by.So although service is piss poor -notably with the newer guy - the Urban Grind does have some good features.

You could have had a V-8. The Urban Grind is a coffeeshop turned event space past its prime and unable to keep up with growth of West Midtown. New bratty barista in the mornings takes the ambiance away from what was a nice compliment to the nationally known coffeeshop down the street. Its not the place for coffee, but they do have good events. Old achool staff are nice. New staff need their diaper changed. Drip and Revelator are better choices for tgose who enjoy the essence of a coffeeshop. Check food inspection numbers at the Urban Grind and the last time they has an inspection.
Inman Perk is a great little coffeeshop in Inman Park. It's a perfect place to get some work done or just sit outside with a breakfast sandwich and an iced coffee.I especially dig their breakfast - much cheaper than other options around and still great. Sandwiches are made by default with egg whites, which is a nice touch. The food always does take FOREVER to come out, though, so if you're in a hurry it might be better to head somewhere else.
Perfect spot for breakfast alone, brunch with friends or dinner with boo. The biscuits must be made with some type of mind control agent because they are remarkable. The chicken sausage gravy is like the sunlight in your room after a storm. Simply refreshing. The service is great and the decor makes me want to sit on a cloud.
a sweet neighborhood spot whose coffee drinks are just a little less than great. love that they have a dog area. have not been in the afternoon but might be a cozy spot for a beer.
West Egg cafe is my go to spot for lunch whenever I am around the Westside district. I have not had one item that I did not like. Everything is amazing especially the egg sandwich and Milky Way latte. The latte is very chocolatey and sweet so I drink it as a dessert soup. I also love that fact that they model their restaurants name and slogans after The Great Gatsby. You cannot go wrong with anything from West Egg cafe.
Nice little coffee shop in N. Highlands to grab a coffee and do a little work. They also have a patio perfect for enjoying the weather and people watching.
Popped in to work outside of the office & get a change of scenery and the service was awesome. so was my lemon pound cake.
Flying biscuit is a great place for breakfast, but the biscuits were not as good as people told me they were. They're not bad, but they didn't live up to the hype. Ok,now that we've got that out of the way let's talk about my meal which was amazing. They should be called flying grits because these are some of the best grits I have ever had. I had the breakfast bowl . It's a bowl of grits topped with two oven fried green tomatoes, turkey bacon , two eggs over medium and top with homemade red salsa. This is truly a dish you need to try and a place you need to go. I just didn't want you going there ready for biscuits, but hey you may like them. I'm use to my grandmas biscuits so, don't mind me.
The food here is just ok. The Margarita are the best! It's usually busy so prepare to wait. It's a really cute restaurant. They also have a shop up front with a lot of cool authentic Mexican items.
