Two new coffee shops are coming to Grant Park

Grant Park is getting two new spots for coffee.

Blue Donkey Coffee, which both roasts and serves coffee, is set to open another location in The George at 275 Memorial Drive this year, while The Beacon development at 1039 Grant St. SE is set to get Brazilian coffeehouse Buteco, What Now Atlanta first reported.

The new Blue Donkey location is also listed on its website. The shop, which specializes in iced coffee and craft coffee products, is owned by Atlanta natives Ed and David Lane and William Rankin.

The shop's roastery, which roasts single origin beans daily, is located in Fayetteville. The business also has locations on the campuses of Georgia Tech and Emory University, and sells coffee at the Piedmont Green Market and Peachtree City Farmer's Market. Blue Donkey also has a seasonal shop at Piedmont Park that's closed for the winter.

Blue Donkey will join Your Pie and Farm Burger in The George .

Buteco, which is shooting for a summer 2018 opening, draws inspiration from owner Rafael Pereira's first job in his first job in his father's bakery in São Paolo, Brazil. The spot will serve coffee, Brazilian comfort foods and beer, wine and cocktails.

The space will seat 25 people indoors, with space for at least 40 more on the outdoor patio.

The bar will join other Beacon concepts Eventide Brewery and businesses including the soon-to-open Grant Park Public House, Third Street Market & Deli, Maggie's Bistro, Patria Cocina and several other businesses.
