While exploring Pigeon Forge, it is easy to work up an appetite and start to feel parched. When that happens, you just have to go three blocks from the Patriot Park Trolley to reach Espresso Yourself. This quaint coffee shop offers everyone’s favorite drinks from hot and frozen coffee to tea of all kinds. You can even pick up a fruit smoothie to rival all smoothies, as they are always made with fresh, organic ingredients.

Beyond their coffee, tea, and more, this coffee shop has a delightful array of tasty snacks in their glass case. Cinnamon rolls, muffins, and cookies vie for your attention as you look through the glass for whatever calls your name. Throughout the year, you can even find seasonal treats on tap, including gingerbread men and carrot cake.

As if the delicious drinks and snacks were not enough to pull you in, their dining room is built to impress. You will love sliding on to their comfy rocking chairs, available inside their dining room and outside, and taking in all their eclectic décor. You can even bring along a board game to enjoy while you sip on your drinks and munch all of the treats you can eat.

Everyone’s favorites include:

Peanut Butter Cup Latte
Available in three sizes, the Peanut Butter Cup Latte has all your favorite flavors in a single drink. With each sip, the rich, creamy peanut butter will tantalize your taste buds before fading out to let the coffee shine through. Make sure to try it hot and cold as the weather changes, treating your senses to an awesome experience time and time again.

Caramel Apple Smoothie
When you order the Caramel Apple Smoothie, you can experience all the best fall flavors sip after sip. The bright apple pairs beautifully with the sweet caramel, treating you to an awesome flavor experience without the mess. You can order this drink in small, medium, or large as needed to address your thirst.

Cookies and Cream Frappe
When a cold drink is sorely needed, make sure to try the Cookies and Cream Frappe. This drink starts with a vanilla cream base that is rich, flavorful, and icy cold. Then, they add cookie chunks, filling the drink from top to bottom with sweet bits and pieces. As it is powerfully sweet, only order the large size if you arrive ravenous and ready for the dessert of a lifetime. Otherwise, pick it up in a small or medium with a snack on the side.

When you cannot come in for all your favorite drinks, Espresso Yourself still has your back. They provide a variety of bagged coffee beans and loose-leaf teas, so you can make your favorite drinks at home. You can also choose from their Monin flavor syrups, including apple, chocolate, and agave, picking up all the best flavors to store near the coffeepot. Don’t forget to browse all their unique jelly flavors while you are stocking up.
