Charleston-based coffee shop and cafe the Daily opens next year in Atlanta’s Berkeley Park neighborhood on Trabert Avenue — the same street as Floral Park Market and Monday Night Brewing.

For owners Michael and Melody Shemtov, who also own Butcher and Bee in Charleston and Redheaded Stranger in Nashville, opening the Daily here is a sort of homecoming. Both are Atlanta natives and have been living in the city since last summer in order to get a better feel for the neighborhoods. The couple say they consulted chef and friend Anne Quatrano (Bacchanalia, Star Provisions) on Atlanta locations who led them to the Trabert Avenue space.

At twice the size of the Charleston cafe, the Daily in Atlanta will feature seating inside and on a patio adjacent to the building with the design handled by Square Feet Studio. In addition to its coffee, seasonal lattes, and smoothies, chef Jacob Hunter also plans to expand the food menu, which includes a selection of toasts, breakfast sandwiches, bowls, wraps, and salads.

The Shemtovs say they hope to eventually expand the Daily to other metro Atlanta locations.

The Daily, which opened in 2014 on Upper King Street in Charleston, joins a number of other Charleston-based restaurants in Atlanta. Queen Street Grocery owner Rob Bouton opened Field Day restaurant and Everyday Market in the Old Fourth Ward two years ago. Indigo Road Hospitality Group includes locations of O-Ku Sushi and Sukoshi in Atlanta and Oak Steakhouse and Italian restaurant Colletta at Avalon in Alpharetta.

Owners Nicole Lewis and Chris Wilkins relocated their Charleston bakery Root Baking Co. to Ponce City Market in 2018. Lewis and Wilkins transformed a portion of the bakery into Pizza Jeans pizzeria last August. Root Baking continues to offer counter-service at Ponce City Market and sells its breads at area Whole Foods and farmers markets.
