Contact Info



When Norcross’s downtown coffee shop was on the brink of closing, Keith and Jeanette Shewbert felt they had to act in order to keep the coffee flowing. Fourteen years later, 45 South continues to serve the community. (Now Gwinnett’s oldest Independent coffee shop!) Coffee beans that are locally roasted, then freshly ground each day. Hand-pulled espresso shots (our coffee geeks really appreciate that personal touch!) , and when you walk in the door, you’re welcomed like one of the locals, check out the diverse local community, 45 South "A Coffee Kitchen" is a community-focused "Third Place" that works diligently to make everyone feel at home…and a little more awake, every day! Visitors to Norcross and those who call this idealic Southern town home are what make 45 South Cafe the perfect place to be!

Chat with a friend over a cup of locally-roasted, freshly brewed coffee or a glass of wine. Munch on a savory slice of quiche or one of our pastries. Work on your laptop in the peace and quiet of our back patio. 45 South Cafe is "Your Meeting Place" just a few steps from your home or a short ride into the heart of Downtown Historic Norcross at 45 South Peachtree Street.
