8ARM CAFE “A coffee shop with an executive chef!”

Wow! I amĀ blown away every time I frequent 8arm! This establishment was literally a blessing from the food gods for Atlanta!

8arm serves some of the, no let me rephrase that, THE best food I have ever eaten at a coffee bar. At this point, I would not even consider 8arm a coffee bar anymore, It is almost insulting. This is a culinary HOTSPOT! Owners Nhan Le and former owner Angus Brown, (Rest in Peace), really know what they were doing when creating this masterpiece. If I lived in Ponce City Market’sĀ trendy loft apartments, I would be at 8ARM every day….Ā Hold on, I don’t live at Ponce, but I am at 8arm almost every day!

Back to the point, 8ARM is a go-to spot when in Atlanta. If you live in Atlanta (or anywhere around the perimeter), and have not been to 8arm, your palate has unfortunetly not matured to its full potential. With options ranging from an Egg Mcmuff to a Sweet Potato Beef shank, you know there is something serious going on in the Kitchen. And this is just brunch!

Without prolonging this post any further, I must conclude by simply stating, “Go to 8ARM!’ If you are not pleased with your experience, I would doubt that you were in the right state of mind when you came to visit, or maybe you were having a bad dream.

Now let me bless everyone with some mouthwatering pictures off of the brunch menu at 8arm, taken by yours truly, ME šŸ™‚

Golden Drops Cafe


Let me begin by saying, I am an avid coffee drinker. I drink coffee, not just for the morning rush and the extra push to get me through the day. I drink coffee for the taste! Not just the milk, added sugar, sweeteners, along with any other additive. I truly enjoy the taste of coffee itself. Do not get me wrong, when coffee is mixed properly, with great ingredients to perfectly compliment the cup, I really do enjoy it. And Golden Drops Cafe does just that!

Golden Drops Cafe sources their coffee from a friend in El Salvador who grows his own coffee and is also a barista champion in El Salvador. With the assistance of their supplier, Golden Drops Cafe implemented a coffee menu unlike any other around. The coffee alone is exceptional. The espresso is slightly bitter, with a great balance of richness and a VERY, VERY smooth finish. It is a very drinkable espresso, that can be taken down with little to no awkward facial expressions!! The taste of the espresso is vibrant and stands out in any of the lattes or cappuccinos. The favorite latteĀ of mine is the signature Golden Latte! Golden Drops also has a good amount of latin food, with cuisineĀ ranging from Dominican to Brazilian to Mexican! All of the small bites are home made and you can truly taste it no matter what you decide to order!

What really makes Golden Drops amazing is the Owner, Victor Ramirez, who has a passion for what he does. Victor can talk to you for hours about his coffee, where the coffee is sourced from and how delicious the food is. He is a very delightful man who can put a smile on your face while spewing knowledge and history of great coffee. I look forward to visiting Ā Golden Drops every morning, and any afternoon that I can make it over there to study.


“Only two coffee shops in America are using the coffee beans that are served at Golden Drops Cafe” -Victor Ramirez

“I have a hard time enjoying coffee, I struggle to find one that I truly enjoy due to the intense bitterness. At Golden Drops, the coffee is amazing! I love all of their Lattes!!!” -Emily Rios

“Had a large cup of their signature coffee drink–normally do not like my coffee at all sweet but this was delicious. Ā Also had a guava-cheese empanada as a snack–tasted great too. ”
Highly recommended. -David M (Yelp.com)golden double latte.jpeg
