With so many coffee shops in Chattanooga, the casual visitor might become overwhelmed with the options. While there are many excellent cafes in the Chattanooga area, if you want a truly Chattanooga-esque café experience, the Camp House should be first on your list.
The Camp House is representative of Chattanooga’s atmosphere because it combines three things that Chattanooga is known for: beautiful architecture, good music, and excellent food and beverages. The Camp House’s venue features exposed brick, high ceilings, and vintage light fixtures. Its clean-cut lines merge with its antique accents to create an urban, yet comforting, ambience.
However, the Camp House is not only a café; it also hosts events such as Songwriter Shootout (an event that brings local talent to play in the café) Theology on Tap (an opportunity for intelligent conversation about theology over good beer), and weekly inexpensive, intimate concerts (featuring artists such as Derek Webb, Cereus Bright, and David Wilcox).
No good café would be worth visiting, however, if their food was bad. Thankfully the Camp House not only provides a creative atmosphere, it also serves delicious food and drinks. From their Classic Waffles (under $5) with warm butter and mouthwatering syrup to their carefully handcrafted lattes you will not be disappointed by the Camp House’s service.
If you visit the Camp House, do be advised that parking can be difficult (though far from impossible) to find in that area and check their website to make sure that they are not booking a private event on the night that you want to visit. Then show up, order some great coffee, and enjoy whatever creative treat the Camp House has prepared for you.
