Editor’s note: Yelp is a website and a mobile app – free to use – that connects you with local businesses, organizations and events. Reporter Newspapers has partnered with OTP Community Manager Heidi Paruta for a monthly feature. Here are some favorite eats, treats and more, from Yelpers in Reporter Newspapers communities.

After the holidays are over each year, the weather typically gets worse before it gets better, doesn’t it? Yelpers have got just what the weatherman ordered to warm you up from the inside out.

Perk N Pooch

According to Yelpers, dogs and coffee were always meant to be together. However, stop in even if you don’t have a pup, for an excellent cup! The menu is as full as you’d expect from any coffee shop, with flavored espressos, coffee, tea and more.

Sugar Shack

Able to complement any type of sweet treat with their large drink menu including coffee, cappuccino, hot tea, hot cider, housemade hot chocolate, breve, and the list goes on! Yelpers call it a great choice for a cupcake and coffee date.

Brookhaven, 4058 Peachtree Rd., Brookhaven, 30319

Crema Espresso Gourmet

The name says it all – they even offer espresso with alcohol in an open, inviting space. Yelpers value owner Yossi’s dedication and talent, and the staff’s excellent customer service.

Cafe Jonah

Serves Atlanta’s Batdorf & Bronson coffee, in addition to lattes, cappuccinos and espresso. Yelpers also love the selection of hot teas and hot chocolate. There’s even a psychic upstairs!
