Rahel Belfield’s coffee shop, Grant Park Coffeehouse, will serve its last cup of coffee at the café’s current location on Cherokee Ave. But there is no need to panic, while the change is big, it sounds like in the long run, it will make room for even better coffee and pastry related things.

“After 11 years at our current location across from the Atlanta Zoon, we are packing up our coffee makers and chicken salad and relocating slightly further downtown,” Belfield shared across Grant Park Coffeehouse’s social media channels just yesterday. “Our new location will be 8 Park Place South in Downtown Atlanta, just 10 minutes from where we are now (and walking distance from GSU, CNN and many other spots.”

After celebrating its last day at the Cherokee Ave location on September, 28th, Grant Park Coffeehouse will reopen at the Park Pl. spot on September 29th.

And the news doesn’t stop there—it turns out, in addition to the move, Grant Park will return to the same area sometime next year in the form of a second café. “I would never want to leave my regulars and friends without somewhere in the neighborhood, so I’m also happy to reveal that we will be opening a second location very close to our original spot some time next year,” adds Belfield. The café’s second location has not yet been announced.

In addition to coffee and pastries, Grant Park serves breakfast plates like Butter rolls, scrambles, and cheesy grits. You can also find Ashby’s Sterling hand-scooped ice cream at the coffee shop.
