It’s no secret that I am always looking for an awesome new place to get some delicious food. I’m even more so always on the look out for a great cup of java! Which brings no surprise why I stumbled upon this little gem. On a humid rainy day, I drove around the streets of Inman park looking for coffee to fight off a bad case of the sleepies. My 3-year-old was with grandma, so it was just my 7 months old and I. After driving past the great Krog Street market, I saw what appeared to be a red and white sign nestled in between two branches. It looked like a small intimate building with a small bistro table & two chairs. The sign read “Juliana’s crepes and coffee”. What could be better than something sweet? I parked on the side of the street and carried my son along the uneven cobblestone sidewalk. When I entered the building I was greeted by a nice young 20 something gentleman letting me know they close at 4. (It was 3:50 pm. Oops) I was going to leave at first but decided to buy something so I’m not wasting this guys time. I honestly never had a real crepe before so this was kind of exciting. I asked what the favorites of most were. Apparently, everyone loves Nutella. I ended up going with the Apple caramel crepe and omg was it delicious!! It had fresh sliced granny smith apples stuffed inside a thin crisp crepe smothered in caramel, dusted with powdered sugar, hot off the skillet. Something so simple yet flavorful. I live for flavor! For the size and price, I would say it was well worth it. I ordered my crepe to-go since the guy was trying to close up shop. As far as in coffee, they only had one option and one blend of coffee. Regular old drip coffee courtesy of Dancing Goats coffee. (I’ll be going there soon.)
The atmosphere of this little eclectic joint was like most local coffee houses- quite, quaint & cozy, which I love. I could tell by the concrete floors, stone walls, and the old furniture that it was an old building which adds to its charm. I would say it’s somewhat kid friendly. I didn’t see any high chairs or anything there to keep kids occupied but for an early dessert or brunch kind of thing, I would recommend. Might make a cute date place. They also sold local jams or preservatives on the shelves on the walls. I thought that was nice. With a very limited menu of just specialty crepes, tea, and coffee, you’ll basically go there for just crepes. I highly recommend trying this place! Parking isn’t the best (side street parking) but great for in and out a quick bite. It’s local and I’m all about supporting local business. I think it would be a great place for travelers as well because it’s in the midst of one of Atlanta’s oldest and historic neighborhoods.
If you live in or around Atlanta, try to stop by. If you’re visiting, make a trip there. You won’t be sorry.
