Bread Coffeehouse is a place unlike any other on campus

…a place where good coffee flows freely, delicious treats are served daily, where residents and staff know your name, where you will be treated with love no matter what you believe, a place that never pushes Jesus on you but a place where the staff believes in serving Jesus by serving you and loving you.

We have live bands, great dinners, quiet study times, deep conversations, great story tellers and people who will listen to you.And we are a lot of fun! Come play ping pong or a board game, create art by baking or drawing on the tables, pick up a guitar, play with playdough or dance in the kitchen.


Located at the intersection of North Decatur Road and Clifton Road, Bread Atlanta serves the students of Emory University and the surrounding area. The house is open Monday through Thursday during the semester for students to get a free cup of coffee, play games, and feel at home.

We love live music and we love people who love to show off their talent. We are looking for talent most Thursdays of the Fall and Spring semesters (September through November, January through April). Artists play for a very hospitable crowd, a delicious meal and we even pass the gas can for tips. Our students purchase merch like crazy in the form of cds, stickers and t-shirts, so bring it along. If you’re a musician or a band or a comedian or a poetry slammer and you just need an audience and a venue, then you should email Ashton at
