You and Me and Coffee and Tea

on March 10, 2018

Being a Chamber member sometimes means I want to go to a Grand Opening but I can’t because there’s conflict on my calendar (that’s what my mom calls it).  When that happens, I have to miss one event because something else is already planned.  That’s what happened when Smoky Mountain Espresso had their big Grand Opening on February 28. I already had something else planned (school actually) so I couldn’t go to this Chamber event.

But that’s okay because my mom said we could go to Smoky Mountain Espresso on a different day so I could take pictures and let everybody know about this new place that also has a Sweet Frog in the same location.

This is a new business and it’s on Middle Creek Road in Sevierville, just a little bit off Veterans Boulevard on the same side of Veterans as Dollywood (except Dollywood is still a long drive up before you get to it).  Before it got opened, everybody was trying to guess what it was going to be.  Then it opened and it was the Smoky Mountain Espresso and plus also a Sweet Frog (and that’s a frozen yogurt place) right in the same building but on other sides of each other.

Inside it’s really nice.  This is what it looks like.

It’s got a nice comfortable look and feel to it I think, and if the fire was going, it would be even better.   If you look on the right side of my picture, you can see a fire extinguisher.  That makes me feel superly safe because if a fire breaks out at the fireplace, the workers of this place can put it out before it takes over the whole place and someone gets hurt maybe.  So I’m giving having a fire extinguisher in that good of a place a two thumbs up from me.

Maybe you’re wondering what the saying over the fireplace says.  It’s a really good idea so I took a picture of it so you can read it without any trouble.  Here’s what it says.

Isn’t that excellent advice?  I think it is.  And you know what else?  There’s other signs with sayings on them at Smoky Mountain Espresso, like this one bunches.

I know it says coffee but I’m pretty sure it means tea, too, because you have to brew tea and lots of people like tea, and when you go to one of my tea parties, you know that’s true because of how much fun we have.

I know the sign over the muffins and cookies says “Never Enough Coffee” but I think they also mean never enough tea and never enough sweet treats.  Also, I like that there’s not a bazillion things to choose from because that means people don’t have to worry about not knowing what they want to get when they go to Smoky Mountain Espresso.  It looks like it’s easy peasy pickin’s (that’s what my Grandpa Two Rivers says lots of times).

So if you want to support a new Chamber of Commerce member, you should go to this location with some friends and check Smoky Mountain Espresso out.  I think maybe it’s going to wind up being one of your favorite places for a quiet cup of coffee or tea.

If you do go, you should come back to my blog and share what it was like for you in the Comments Section.
