Free bites during grand opening celebration at Octane Coffee in Woodruff Arts Center

Octane Coffee Company LLC, the Atlanta-based coffee roaster and retailer, has opened a new location at the Woodruff Arts Center in Midtown.


The new space, which opened last month, features the coffee, tea and light eats that are offered at three other metro-area locations. On Aug. 5, the shop, which officially opened in July, is having a grand opening celebration. Guests can get free breakfast sliders in morning, free appetizers in the evening and free travel mugs all day long.

With the location in the Arts Center, Octane now offers guests of the Alliance Theatre, Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and the High Museum of Art a place to relax and refuel while enjoying Atlanta's top cultural institutions. The menu includes new brews from Octane's in-house team as well as new food items made in-house and from local artisans. Soon, classic cocktails and craft beers will also be available.


“We love the energy and the family atmosphere that this area provides,” said Diane Riffel, Octane partner.  “Our philosophy on a handcrafted experience putting quality and service first fits very well within the high standards of The Woodruff Arts Center.”

Octane Coffee, Woodruff Arts Center, 1280 Peachtree Street. Open 7 a.m. –10 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. –10 p.m.  on weekends.
