I love a good latte or mocha in a cute coffee shop. Bonus points if the latte has an extra shot of espresso, and more bonus points if said coffee shop is locally owned. I like a good Starbucks drink as much as the next basic white girl, but when given the option, I’ll pick a local spot over a chain almost every time.
Chattanooga has plenty of options when it comes to local coffee shops and cafes.
As much as I love taking coffee breaks in the afternoon, I’m also a fan of getting downtown early and treating myself to a nice coffee before work. Especially on Mondays, it’s a nice, quiet way to get my mind set and start the week on a good note.
Not only is Chattanooga home to many great coffee spots; we’ve also got great spots for tea and hot chocolate. No matter your taste, Chattanooga has a cafe or shop that has what you’re looking for.
