We stopped here for a coffee and to relax while traveling through Tennesee. This place is right on the campus and in a very lovely setting. The lattes we had were tasty and they offered a nice selection of food as well.

Good food and drink. You can get a bagel or a fabulous sandwich. Always friendly service and an inviting atmosphere. Stop in for a bite when you’re visiting the University.

Great espresso and hot chocolate on a cold fall day! Lively environment filled with the usual campus suspects! Located within an historic house with several small rooms. Nice porch as well.
