We love our coffee. I mean we reallllly love our coffee. So if you’re looking for the best spots in town to camp out and work in, or if you just need to run in and get your fix quick, we’ve got you covered! Check out our list with some of the best coffee shops the Scenic City has to offer:
Best For Vegans
Milk & Honey
135 North Market Street
Easily one of Chattanooga’s favorite (and most Instagrammed) coffee shops it Milk & Honey in the North Shore. Not only does Milk & Honey have a delicious selection of craft coffees, they also offer a full menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and all three are served all day! Want waffles at 6 p.m.? They got you. If you have a special diet, check out their full vegan menu. Also don’t miss the gelato, which is M&H’s second claim to fame. One thing to note is that this shop is smaller and tends to be busy a lot (for good reason), so there is a chance you might have to wait for a table to open up.

Best For Working/Studying
Cadence Coffee Co.
11 E 7th St
Serving up cuppas since 2011, Cadence Coffee is an amazing hidden gem right in the heart of downtown Chattanooga. Their location might have changed (since their days on Patten Parkway), but the inventive brews and cozy vibes are still the same. Try their newest special the Summer Lynn which is made up of blackberry, coconut, equal parts cold brew and almond milk, and a splash of heavy whipping cream. Yum!
Best For Large Groups
The Camp House
149 E. MLK Blvd.
The Camp House's massive space and delicious coffee makes it the perfect place for a work meeting or a study group. When it's nice outside, you can sit on the spacious patio and even bring your pup (on a leash of course!). Snag a latte to see what kind of art might be on top, and stay long enough for a meal. The food is delicious!

Best For Families
Rembrandt’s Coffee House
204 High Street
No list of coffee shops would be complete without Rembrandt’s in Bluff View! If you consider yourself a coffee snob, this wouldn’t be the first place we’d send you, but for its location, ambiance and DESSERTS, Rembrandt’s had to make the cut. Bring the kiddos and share a sweet treat out on the patio, which looks like a scene straight out of Italy. If you’re hungry, they have yummy sandwiches and salads, or you can pop on over to Tony’s Pasta Shop & Trattoria which is right next door.

Best For Specialty Coffee
114 West Main St. OR 205 Manufacturers Rd Suite 109
Does a latte made with beet root, orange, ginger, honey and almond or coconut milk sound delicious to you? This is just one of Mean Mug’s yummy and unique coffee drinks you can snag at their Southside location or at their newest spot in Signal Mill. If you’re looking for a place to take friends who aren’t coffee drinkers, Mean Mug also offers alternatives like a chai latte, tea, hot chocolate, kombucha and more. Definitely go for breakfast and try the quiche of the day, the prosciutto biscuit or the buttermilk waffles.

1400 Market Street
Want a sugary coffee? A pour over? Breakfast, lunch or dinner? A cocktail? Southside’s Frothy Monkey does it all, and somehow still manages to do it well! Grab a latte and take a stroll around the historic Chattanooga Choo Choo or nestle into a quiet corner of the second floor to get some work done. They offer a kids menu and gluten-free options, so no matter what you’re looking for, Frothy Monkey has you covered!
