Recently the mega-coffee chain Starbucks announced that it was surprising its customers with an early release of their popular seasonal drink, the Pumpkin Spice Latte. However, the surprises don’t stop there for visitors to the Smoky Mountains.
In addition to treating guests to their favorite drink early, Starbucks is also treating fans to a brand new location in our very own Gatlinburg TN.
Set to open on September 8, the new Gatlinburg coffee shop will be located next door to the brand new Paula Deen Gatlinburg store and the Mellow Mushroom at the south end of the Parkway.
Do you already know the first drink you plan on ordering at the new Gatlinburg coffee shop? Let us know in the comments below!
Our Favorite Local Gatlinburg Coffee Shops
If you are looking to include a little local flair in your morning cup of coffee, then you and your family will love visiting one of these great local Gatlinburg coffee shops.
The Donut Friar
The welcoming aroma of freshly-made donuts and just brewed coffee is always what comes to mind when we think of The Donut Friar coffee shop in downtown Gatlinburg. The friendly staff is there to greet you with a smile and a hot cup of coffee every morning at 5 a.m.
What we love the most about this Gatlinburg coffee shop is that you can either enjoy your drink inside and watch as the people stroll through the shop, or you can step right outside and enjoy it next to the bubbling fountain at The Village Shops. Either way, a trip to The Donut Friar is one of our favorite ways to start the day when we visit Gatlinburg.
