Beans + Brews

At Athens Cooks, we love the idea of sipping on a great cup of coffee while you shop or sitting with a friend and talking about your finds while snacking on a local pastry. In our cafe, we're dedicated to offering customers a high-quality coffee experience with top-notch machinery and the best local brews. That's why we're proud to serve 1000 Faces Coffee and Publica Coffee!

1000 Faces Coffee is a coffee roaster and merchant of change, with a mission to connect coffee consumers and producers more directly through quality, education, service, and friendly interactions. They believe that by increasing consumer demand for high-quality coffee, they can spur more quality coffee production. 1000 Faces travels to coffee-producing countries to establish relationships with producers and ensure the integrity of their coffee. They believe in the importance of respecting geographic origin, building direct relationships, and promoting ecological awareness in the coffee industry.

Independent Bakery Co.
In addition to our amazing coffee options, we also offer a selection of fresh pastries from two local bakeries. The Independent Bakery in the Five Points of Athens is committed to providing our community with healthful, hearth-baked loaves of bread and delicious pastries, just as community bakeries have done for hundreds of years. We're happy to be joining the group of Athens dining-establishments that carry their delectable goods!


Kiki's Bakeshop Logo
Our other pastry option comes from Kiki's Bakeshop in downtown Watkinsville, Georgia. Kiki's Bakeshop is inspired by the great food traditions and bakeries of Europe, and offers a wide assortment of tasty, home-baked goods, all crafted by hand in their kitchen.

We invite you to come and enjoy a cup of coffee and a pastry at our cafe, where you can watch the world go by and enjoy the friendly, community atmosphere.

Our cafe will feature a carefully curated selection of beer from some of the best local breweries in the area. We are proud to offer brews from Athentic Brewery, Normaltown Brewery, and Southern Brewing Co., each with its own unique flavor profile and character. Whether you prefer a hoppy IPA, a crisp lager, or a rich stout, we'll have rotating taps to feature something for every taste.

In addition to our beer selection, we are also excited to offer a selection of wine from small boutique vineyards that practice sustainable agriculture and/or biologique practices. These vineyards take pride in producing high-quality wines that are not only delicious, but also environmentally and socially responsible.

To start, we will be offering a selection of charcuterie boards featuring an assortment of locally sourced meats and cheeses. Our meats will come from great businesses like Spotted Trotter and Coro, known for their commitment to using ethically raised animals. Our cheeses will come from local farms like Rockhouse Creamery and Sweetgrass Dairy, two of the best artisanal cheese producers in the region. These boards will be accompanied by a variety of high-quality local fruits and veggies, as well as olive oils from Uliva and Brightland. Our breads and crackers will come from GA Sourdough and Independent Baking Co., ensuring that every bite is fresh and flavorful.

In the coming months, we plan to expand our cafe menu to include sandwiches, soups, and daily specials featuring the best local ingredients and flavors. We are always looking for new and exciting ways to showcase the abundance of talent and resources in our community, and we can't wait to share them with you.

So if you're in the area, be sure to stop by and check out our cafe. Whether it's for a coffee and pastry on your way to work or wine and cheese in the evening, we can't wait to see you there!
