Hodgepodge Coffeehouse is a black woman-owned business, based out of Atlanta,GA. As an independent coffeehouse, Hodgepodge has a one-of-a-kind menu featuring craft coffee and scratch-baked goods that are made in-house every day.
Hodgepodge’s mission is to create a unique space in East Atlanta, where all are welcome to converse over great coffee and food, and it is with this idea that the first location opened up in Ormewood Park. With 3000 square feet of space, this shop has expanded into a gallery space for local artists and a consignment program with local merchants.
Building a community in East Atlanta was a gamble, but it certainly paid off. Although the majority of Hodgepodge’s customers live within a five-mile radius, people from all over the city spent time within Hodgepodge’s walls and asked when the business would expand into their own neighborhoods. There are plenty of other coffee shops people can go, but Hodgepodge’s customer service and attention to detail, keeps the customers coming in day in and day out.
To further respond to the neighborhood's needs, Hodgepodge introduced a market into its Ormewood Park shop. Being in a food desert makes it difficult for everyone in the community to access fresh and healthy food, so the Hodgepodge Market is stocked with prepared meals, fruits and vegetables and other goods from local food vendors. Continuing Hodgepodge’s quest to fill each community it enters with delicious coffee, homemade goodness and a whole lot of love, a second location opened in Reynoldstown seven years after the first. For its ninth year, Hodgepodge will be opening another location in Decatur, and a fourth shop in Summerhill will join the Hodgepodge family for the business’s tenth anniversary.
