It looks like coffee and cycling enthusiasts will soon have a destination to share their interests. Cafe + Velo is opening on Edgewood Avenue in Sweet Auburn. Local artist Jeff Demetriou and Atlanta Beltline Bicycle owner Ben Boisson are behind the project.
Further details are vague at the moment, but Demetriou believes Cafe + Velo will bring something new to the city. “It's going to be a very different kind of place,” he said in text message to Eater Atlanta, “the kind of place many people have been wanting.” Demetriou confirmed local caffeine juggernaut Octane Coffee “is involved.”
A website and accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram have gone live. As of this posting, Cafe + Velo’s website is sparse, save for a logo, social media links, and a rolling countdown. There’s no mention of what, exactly, is planned when the clock strikes zero, but it will happen on Monday, September 5. Perhaps a Labor Day opening is in the cards?
