There’s now a weekly biscuit popup at the Met in Adair Park
Butterly Biscuits is popping up with from scratch biscuits and breakfast sandwiches every Wednesday and Saturday, from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Met complex on Murphy Avenue. The family-owned business may be familiar to those who attend Grant Park Farmers Market on Sunday mornings. The Met menu includes a BEC breakfast biscuit, smoked salmon biscuit, a cinnamon roll biscuit, and the option to purchase six frozen biscuits to reheat at home. Order onsite at the blue tent or preorder online. Curbside pickup is only available on Saturdays. Saturday preorders must be placed by Friday at 11 p.m. People are asked to please wear masks.
Hodgepodge Coffeehouse makes its stance known on inclusivity and antifascism
The coffee shop is making its inclusivity and antifascist stances known once again. Hodgepodge Coffeehouse posted the statement nearly a year ago to its Instagram account and is re-sharing it with followers, as protests against police brutality continue in Atlanta and throughout the country. Both the East Atlanta and Reynoldstown locations include the “No Hate Here” posters, which owner Krystle Rodriguez says are sometimes stolen off the walls. “Just a reminder that, no matter which location you visit, you are seen, loved, supported, and protected,” the post reads. Since the protests began in Atlanta, Hodgepodge has been lending out its parking lot to those who wish to organize and make signs. The shop is also donating to bail funds and giving out free coffee to protesters.

Just a reminder, for anyone who has come in the last couple of weeks and said anything about our #antifascist stance: here is our post from almost a year ago (August 16, 2019 to be exact). We've had these posters up in both locations since. They get boosted and we just print out more. Antifa is not a group, it's a protest movement made up of anyone who militantly opposes fascism and that's us all day Repost by @_reposta ——— It looks like our OG location will be closed until Tuesday as we (impatiently) wait for the final piece of equipment needed to fix our AC. Just a reminder that, no matter which location you visit, you are seen, loved, supported, and protected ♥️ #goodmorning #riseandgrind #friendlyreminder #weloveyou #safespace #hodgepodgecoffee #local #independent #eav #ormewoodpark #reynoldstown #atlanta #weloveatl
Mellow Mushroom launches a community giving program
Pizza chain Mellow Mushroom launched “A Pie for a Pie” at all 180 of its restaurants throughout the country in April. Every week, individual restaurants donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of a small pizza to a local nonprofit or frontline worker. On Thursday, June 25, the Georgia locations plan to donate pizza proceeds to over two dozen local and regional nonprofits, including Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, the YMCA summer food program, local Boys and Girls Clubs, and the Decatur Housing Authority. Check individual Mellow Mushroom restaurants for more details on donations. [OFFICIAL]
