The pleasures of living in Brookhaven start first thing in the morning. For many of us, this means a cup of coffee at one of our favorite spots, maybe with a friend or two. Finding the spot that suits you best is like finding a friend who is morning-friendly – not just anyone will do. It’s fortunate, then, that Brookhaven offers a rich array of options.

Brookhaven has its own Flying Biscuit Café. Serving breakfast all day, the award-winning Biscuit is a place to enjoy country eggs benedict, city-fied smoked salmon, or just about any breakfast delight you have in mind. The Biscuit is known for carryout and catering, too, so if breakfast must happen at your place, home or work, they can more than satisfy.

Minutes away is Esquisito Bakery & Café, where breakfast is served, delectable cakes are displayed, and beautiful baked goods by the dozen are enjoyed, both here and at home. Esquisito dedicates their skills to “the small pleasures of life.” Fans hereabouts say that’s a pretty modest explanation for the quality of what you’ll enjoy there. “Exquisite,” they say, is a name that was well chosen.

Starbucks is no stranger to anyone, and people who choose the townhomes of Brookhaven are no exception. Two locations are extremely handy and a third is on the way. So, for those who say, “Nothing else will do,” Starbucks is here for you.

Enthusiasm on the Go

Grab-and-go is more than “the new normal” for many in the thick of their careers; it was their preferred mode of morning coffee all along. “A cup of ambition” can be the secret ingredient for a satisfying day at work, and the opportunity to make that an excellent cup of coffee is right here where Brookhaven folks want to see it.

Moonbird Coffee is open for grab-and-go now, Wednesday through Saturday. Their fans say the espresso, cappuccino, Americano, and latte – or hot chocolate Mexican style, or whole leaf tea, or iced tea flavored by the season – that they found there are reason enough to call it a special day.

Others say that the WFM Coffee Bar is convenient, even though it’s two or three miles north, because as the initials suggest, it’s located in The Whole Foods Market on Peachtree Boulevard. With sensible precautions, people are shopping at Whole Foods again, and you know the thoughtfulness that goes into the selections they present there. The same is true of their coffee.

The lifestyle of Brookhaven adds value to living or investing there, beginning with morning coffee and extending far indeed from there.
