Heaven in a Cup: The Best Coffee Place in Gatlinburg
Jordan's Village Creamery Coffee and Drinks
Considered by some to be the playground of the Midwest, my family started going to Gatlinburg around 2004. With its quirky shops, extensive hiking trails, white-water rafting, beautiful, fun-filled cabins, and abundance of places to get married – one being a drive thru wedding place – we quickly fell in love with this quirky vacation spot. So it is with deep dismay that I write about how of all the times I’ve been to the place, I’ve only recently discovered the best cappuccino place I’ve ever been to in my life.
Nestled back in a cluster of shops called the Village – found on the main shopping strip in Gatlinburg – is the nirvana of cappuccino. Called Jordan’s Village Creamery Coffee and Drinks, this little coffee place features a wide abundance of cappuccino flavors – at least 36 – such as Reese’s peanut butter, cinnamon roll, cinnamon Danish, praline, Snickerdoodle, Butterfinger and even a flavor inspired by the current president called the Obamaccino. A variety of flavors – like bubblegum – exists also for kids, so if you need a coffee fix and are visiting the area with kids, it is well worth stopping by this little nook of a coffee place with the little ones.
Thus far, I’ve tried two of the flavors – cinnamon Danish and Reese’s peanut butter – and my husband has tried some of the other flavors. Our verdict? The cappuccinos – and in his case, frappaccino – taste very much like the flavors advertised. Simply put, it’s heaven in a cup because the flavors are that delectable. Case in point: I first found this place while visiting Gatlinburg for a friend’s bachelorette party. When I later returned with my husband to Gatlinburg, I raved about the place nonstop (I’m a sucker for good cappuccinos).
Yet he seemed more interested in getting his usual green tea frappuccino. After I made him try one of the flavors there, my Starbucks-crazed husband became just as enthusiastic as I was. When I asked him if he had to choose between Starbucks and my discovery, he selected this place. On our last full day in Gatlinburg, we succumbed to our gluttonous nature and ended up buying two drinks apiece. Yes, it is that good.
As mentioned earlier, you can find this coffee place in the Village, which is impossible to miss as it’s on the main shopping strip in Gatlinburg. Upon entering the Village, you’ll see a cluster of shops. To your right, you will see a hiking shop. Just circle around to the right past the hiking shop and you’ll soon arrive at the tiny nook called Jordan’s Village Coffee and Creamery. All the flavors you could ever imagine for cappuccino will be found on a white board on the back, which also advertises other tasty eats like mozzarella sticks.
The place is small, yet cozy with stools and counters to sit at and an eclectic variety of other items for sale – my favorite being the quirky sayings such as, “I smile because you’re my daughter; I laugh because there’s nothing you can do about it.” The cappuccinos run around four dollars and are well worth the cost. To be quite blunt, it is that cappuccino place that makes my husband and I all the more eager to return to our Midwestern playground.
