This is by far my favorite place for coffee in Atlanta. While I do frequent the biggest player in this market as well, Octane provides a great escape and change of pace. The options for coffee are extensive, THEY HAVE ALCOHOL and the staff is the by far the best part! They are the nicest group I've come across in a coffee house. The only reason I gave it 4/5 stars is the hours. I really feel like Octane would benefit from staying open on the weekend until at least 1AM. There is a definite market in the Atlanta area for an alternative to the traditional bar/club scene and I think Octane has all the ingredients. If you put an acoustic performer on Friday and Saturday evenings and made it 18 to get in, 21 to drink after 10pm, you'd fill a huge void in the Atlanta night that doesn't currently exist. That being said, I'm not shying away from Octane as a result. If I'm on the Westside I'm headed there, for sure.
