Knoxville's Most Envied Coffee Shop Corners

When we moved to the Scruffy City, we immediately went on the hunt for the best coffee shops in Knoxville. However, when rain (and temps) started dropping down, we got more specific: coziest coffee shops in Knoxville. (Oh, and pumpkin spiced lattes. Also fleece lined leggings… and cider… and a cute beanie, of course.) Okay, so we went on the hunt for a handful of things, but *one* of those things was most definitely the coziest coffee shop corners in Knoxville.

Well, we’ve done our research and we’re here to share. When the clouds start rolling in, run-don’t-walk to snag a space in one of these six cozy corners in our scruffy lil city!

6 Coziest Coffee Shop Corners

#1: LIKEWISE COFFEE:

East Knoxville

Likewise Coffee is chock full of cozy nooks. Heck, it’s in a gorgeously renovated old house so the whole thing is basically a cozy nook. If you walk in and land the lime green armchair corner or the big leather chairs in front of the fireplace, just trust us – you’ve won the freakin’ lottery. 10/10 recommend this place for all cozy days.

#2: GOLDEN ROAST COFFEE ROASTERS

West Knoxville

Golden Roast Coffee Roasters on Sutherland Ave (otherwise known as the Marble City neighborhood) is located in a renovated old church (okay, maybe we just like old renovated buildings…😂) and we are here for those vibes. Between sinking into the velvet green armchairs or snuggling into the big leather couch, this is clearly the place to ready any storm.

#3: SOUTH PRESS COFFEE

South Knoxville

What can we say about South Press Coffee? She is eclectic. She is inclusive. And by golly if she isn’t cozy 😍 The whole space is chock full of colorful vintage decor, fluffy couches, and a pick-your-own-mug situation that had us swooning.

Backroads Market in West Knoxville

#4: BACKROADS MARKET

West Knoxville

Located just down the street from Golden Roast, Backroads Market is another cozy gem in Marble City. Their space doubles as a perfectly curated home goods store so you know they have the good furniture. Between all the comfy couches, cozy corners, and inspirational wall decor, it’s almost startling how easy it is to spend an entire day hiding out there.

#5: AWAKEN COFFEE

Old City

Awaken Coffee is in the heart of the Old City which means the building is just that: old. Tall, worn brick walls are the perfect backdrop to an afternoon of reading or podcast listening. If we’re looking for optimal cozy, we prefer the far back-right corner – though if you truly want to spoil your inner introvert, take the staircase to the “treehouse.”

Wrenhouse Coffee in Corryton Tennessee

#6: Wrenhouse Coffee

East Knoxville

Wrenhouse Coffee is a little bit off the beaten path, all the way out in Corryton. But what’s cozier than a little bit of East Tennessee countryside? (This would be a perfect stop on your way to Oakes Farm this fall, just sayin’.) This is another house-turned-coffee-shop and we are obsessed with the whitewashed brick fireplace. *dabs tears of delight*

These are just a few of our favorite cozy corners, but you know there are more where those came from! We’ll be spending all our autumn days pumpkin sipping lattes in leather chairs around Knoxville’s coffee. See you there?😉
