I’d been hearing rave reviews about the new Remedy Coffee since it opened just a few weeks ago…and finally I managed to make my way down there last week. I must say, this place is awesome!
It has the Downtown Knoxville coffee shop feel that I love, with big comfy leather couches, exposed brick walls, giant windows, and an upstairs loft for small meetings and study groups (make sure you take advantage of the free WiFi). And the best part – the chai latte and the pumpkin muffin I ordered were delicious!
The pricing is comparable to that of Starbucks (about $6 for my chai and muffin)…BUT Remedy donates 100% of after-tax proceeds to charities like Habitat for Humanity, Tribe One and Beardsley Farm. Talk about generosity!
On top of donating every single penny of their profit helping the Knoxville community, Remedy also brews only 100% organic and direct trade certified coffee, which helps ensure a fair wage for coffee farmers and their families as well thriving and healthy farms.
Remedy is owned by Knoxville Life Church and is located in the Old City at 125 W. Jackson Avenue. The shop is open Monday-Friday (7:00am -10:00pm) and Saturday (8:00am – 10:00pm). It’s closed on Sunday.

Remedy boasts Intelligencia coffee beans (http://www.intelligentsiacoffee.com/). Between that and the fact that Old City Java is gonna start carrying Counter Culture (http://www.counterculturecoffee.com/), I’m pretty stoked about our city’s coffee-shop profile. Looking pretty good!
As you can probably tell my wife and I love coffee shops. Between Remedy and Javerde, we have great choices now in Knoxville. Also, don’t forget about church in the back of Remedy on Sunday mornings – amazing!
