Chocolatte Coffee - Chamblee Georgia off Shallowford Rd

You can find Chocolatte at 2558 Shallowford Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30345 in the Shallowford Exchange shopping center anchored by Publix, right off I85 North before hitting Spaghetti Junction. There aren't a lot of food options in the immediate vicinity (Publix Deli, Marco Pizza and similar).


This is a cute, independent coffee shop that is frequented by locals. I believe it's the closest coffee shop to my home in Northcrest (there used to be one in Embry Village outside the Perimeter on Chamblee-Tucker, however it's now been gone for some time). Whenever I can, I like to visit and support local independent businesses, especially if they offer good products. The coffee at Chocolatte Coffee is quite good. Note that "vente" doesn't make much sense here - ask for an XL.




The interior offers limited seating and menus written in chalk above a short counter. You can get all your specialty coffee drinks here and a limited assortment of baked goods and bagels. This is a small shop with a very friendly and efficient staff - I've occasionally visited and have seen customers lounging with a cup reading SciFi so this is definitely a well-geeked abode for those of us who love coffee and tech.



Parking can be a bit weird - it's easier to bypass the main entry (at the light) and continue to the next while traveling South-East from I85 - the second entry allows you to access the parking along the side of the business. Entering from the main entry forces you to continue around the parking lot and can be somewhat difficult to exit when it's time to depart.


My favorite drink, a large iced Americano.
