Located in a cozy, rustic shop on the Jackson Square in Georgia, Lucy Lu’s coffee could rival Starbucks, while their homemade sweets, bread and sandwiches are just the icing on the cake. Since Lucy Lu’s is named after a real-life pup, it’s only natural there would also be a window to serve treats to furry friends. All around, this small town cafe checks off all the boxes to be dubbed one of the best coffee shops in the south.

Unique and traditional coffee beverages fullfil the cravings of every coffee lover—their general roast is smooth, bold with warm notes, which makes for a killer espresso. All the basics are covered, from Americanos to cappuccinos, but there are plenty of fun creations, like the Butter Pecan Latte with whip and pecan garnish.
Since Stranger Things is filmed in town, a “Stranger Drinks” menu paying tribute to our favorite TV obsession offers the “011” with maple syrup and cinnamon coffee, complete with an Eggo topper. Two other fun options include the “Stranger Things” with coconut and cinnamon, and “The Upside Down” with toffee and chocolate–they look as cool as they sound.
Sandwich selections are simple, classic and perfectly executed. Pimento Cheese on sourdough is satisfyingly soft and creamy, and other mouthwatering creations include egg salad, olive and cream cheese, ham and cheese, turkey and Swiss, and chicken salad—you can choose your bread, but the croissant is hard to beat. In the winter, sandwiches can be paired with house soup. Keep in mind, sandwiches are only available from 11am-2pm. For breakfast, try the buttermilk biscuits with sausage, egg and cheese!
Caramel puff corn, coffee cake, brownies, fresh baked cookies and other delicious pastries are featured year round, but seasonal and rotating indulgences are debuted on the regular. National Blueberry Month brought blueberry buttermilk biscuits, and a dreamy French toast draped in a sweet compote. With autumn nipping at our heels, so is Lucy Lu’s beloved pumpkin bread! Every day here is exciting because you never know what homemade goodies will be waiting for you.
