With two of our daughters home for Christmas, we went out for our traditional Christmas Eve lunch at Tony’s Pasta Shop. Afterwards, we walked around the Bluff View Art district, taking photos. Even taking a photo of the plaque on one of the walls along the sidewalk telling us that we couldn’t take photos in the district! We decided to stop in at Rembrandt’s for a little pick me up before heading home.
The baked goods looked good, but we had sweets waiting for us at home, so settled instead for just coffee drinks. My husband got an expresso, I got an Americano, one daughter got at Chai Latte, and another daughter ordered another coffee drink that I forgot to take note of.
The space is very small and cramped. We managed to get a small table in the middle because someone was just getting up. We then kept an eye out for our drinks to show up on the ledge. The espresso, chai latte and Americano came out all about the same time. My other daughter’s drink, which unfortunately I can’t remember what it was, took forever. She walked up and checked on it two times, before it finally appeared. I had already put my phone and camera away, so I don’t have a photo of it. The drinks were good, nothing special.
There are a lot of good coffee shops in Chattanooga that offer much more inviting, less cramped options. Perhaps in warm weather, sitting on the patio, makes it all worth it, but in cold weather, there is not much to make this the coffee shop of choice.
