… with all of Chattanooga’s coffee shops. If we’re being honest, drinking coffee is an everyday love of ours, which had us thinking, which local coffee shops best represent each day of the week?
We hope you enjoy the final installment of our Drink Up Week articles — a fun take on seven Chattanooga coffee shops.

☕ Monday | Niedlov’s Café & Bakery
It’s important to set your week up for success, which is why Niedlov’s is our Monday coffee shop go-to. Heading here to get your breakfast pastry + coffee fix is the perfect way to set a solid foundation for yourself. Let’s be honest, Mondays are a multiple cups of coffee kind of day for most of us, which is why the free in-house refills of drip coffee are a lifesaver.
☕ Tuesday | Be Caffeinated
Be Caffeinated has several locations throughout the Chattanooga area with drive-thrus, which makes it a convenient + quick way to get your cup of joe. Tuesdays can be hectic, meetings are starting to pile up, and you can’t be late, which is why Be Caffeinated helps us get through a Tuesday with ease without sacrificing our need for caffeine.

☕ Wednesday | Sleepyhead Coffee
You’ve made it to hump day, and we think that is something to be celebrated. Treat yourself to a delicious cup of coffee + a vegan donut at Sleepyhead Coffee. On Wednesdays we start feeling a little excited to be making it through the week, so soak up the good vibes and breathe in the fresh air (you know, because of all the thriving plants).
☕ Thursday | Rembrandt’s Coffee House
When we think of Thursdays, there’s a coziness that comes with it, and Rembrandt’s Coffee House has to be one of Chattanooga’s coziest spots. The indoor + outdoor space perfectly encapsulates a Thursday vibe — all you need is a cappuccino and a Russian tea cookie to accompany you.
☕ Friday | Velo Coffee Roasters
Making it to Friday is one of life’s sweetest feelings, and heading over to Velo Coffee Roasters for an affogato — a scoop of ice cream with a shot of espresso poured over top — is pretty darn sweet. Grabbing this coffee and sitting out on the patio is the perfect way to round out a work week.
Yesterday, the City of Chattanooga released its Roadmap to End Gun Violence in Chattanooga. The roadmap includes immediate actions + long-term investments to help stop the current cycle of violence on city streets and address the issues that cause cultures of violence to emerge in the first place.

Skull Island Campground — a TVA campground located in Harrison ~35 minutes from downtown Chattanooga — recently reopened after years of maintenance-related closure. The campground has been completely refurbished and is now open for booking. ⛺
Bike Walk Tennessee is seeking speakers for the 2022 Tennessee Bike Walk Summit.

Interested speakers can fill out the proposal form.
There’s an app for that. TDOT’s SmartWay Traffic information + the new TDOTFIX (a hotline for drivers to report potholes and other maintenance issues) are now available on an app called MyTN. You can download the app to your device by clicking the Apple or Android store icons on this webpage.
