According to an announcement on Facebook, the coffee shop’s last day open in Decatur is Wednesday, November 23. The original East Atlanta shop, which opened in 2012 on Moreland Avenue, remains open.
“Rising costs over the last year have forced us to make difficult decisions, including editing down our offerings and, eventually, our hours,” the post reads. “We were hoping this would be temporary, but as the months continue we realize we’re simply spread too thin to give the full Hodgepodge experience people have come to know and love at either location.”
Staff from the Decatur location will become employees at the East Atlanta shop, which will also begin rolling out new dishes from its kitchen in the future. The menu currently features baked goods like popovers, beef and chicken Jamaican patties, and biscuit and bagel sandwiches.
Earlier this year, owner Krystle Rodriguez closed the Reynoldstown location of Hodgepodge at the tiny One Moreland retail strip. At the time of the closure, Rodriguez alluded to continuing hardships stemming from the pandemic and trying to maintain the well-being of her staff while balancing all three shops amid rising costs.
Eater reached out to Rodriguez for comment.
