Get ready to get caffeinated, Summerhill.

East Atlanta coffee shop Hodgepodge is set to open a second location across from the GSU Stadium -- formerly Turner Field -- at the corner of Georgia Avenue and Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard in mid-2019. The spot will be housed on the ground level of a new construction office building.

Owner Krystle Rodriguez said the neighborhood was a natural fit -- both she and her husband graduated from GSU and have lived in nearby Chosewood Park for the past decade.

"We're really excited about the growth that's happening in the area," she said.

The setup in the Summerhill shop will be similar to the East Atlanta location, offering a variety of coffee drinks and baked goods. Rodriguez said the East Atlanta location will soon feature a small market with grab-and-go items, which she hopes to bring to Summerhill when that spot opens.

Hodgepodge is also known for displaying the work of local artists and hosting live music and other community events.

Hodgepodge opened in its original location at 720 Moreland Ave. SE in January 2012.

Georgia's first 'own premise' brewery, Halfway Crooks Brewing and Blending, will move in down the street on Georgia Avenue later this year.
