We know how important that morning (or afternoon pick-me-up) cup of coffee is for you, which is why we want to share some of the top places to grab that cup of joe! We aren’t including those big name coffee chains on this list; we want to share the little stores whose coffee is definitely much tastier. So here are the top 5 Pigeon Forge coffee shops you should visit before you come play with us!
1. Coffee Armory
If you want to visit a locally owned and operated coffee shop, you should visit Coffee Armory. This shop is located at The Tower Shops in Pigeon Forge. They proudly serve Black Rifle Coffee Company, a delicious brand of coffee you’ll love at first sip. Get it black, with cream and sugar, or with flavoring. You have the option to get a latte, cappuccino, macchiato, or espresso, and they offer hot and iced options as well. You’ll also find hot chocolate, frozen blends, and teas on their menu. If you fall in love with the flavor of Black Rifle’s coffee, you can pick up a bag or two to take home! You’ll love this Pigeon Forge coffee shop!
2. Espresso Yourself
A hidden gem Pigeon Forge coffee shop you will want to find is Espresso Yourself. Tucked away near Old Mill Square, Espresso Yourself is the quaint little coffee shop of your small town dreams. Choose from light, medium, or dark roast coffee to get your favorite flavor. Of course, you can have it hot with cream and sugar, or you can try an iced version. In addition to coffee, you’ll find a decent selection of hot tea, including early grey, English breakfast, Moroccan mint, and chai.
3. The Old Mill Creamery
If we told you that you could find fantastic coffee at an ice cream shop, you may be skeptical. If you don’t believe us, you should head to The Old Mill Creamery and try it for yourself! They offer Guatemalan dark roast coffee for a robust flavor, but you’ll also find espresso, lattes, macchiatos, and cappuccinos on the menu. Just like other coffee shops, you can get them iced or hot, and when you pair your choice with ice cream, it makes for the perfect pair!
4. Buzzed Bull Creamery
Buzzed Bull Creamery is more than an ice cream shop that serves boozy sweet treats. Of course, you can’t go wrong ordering a spiked milkshake or scoop of ice cream, but it’s even sweeter when you try something from their espresso bar! You won’t find anything quite like the coffee options here. There are flavored coffee beverages, like the Hard Apple Pie made with espresso, steamed cream, caramel, and apple pie mix. There’s also a s’mores and chocolate peanut butter drink you won’t want to miss. Any of these beverages can be “buzzed” if you are over 21. You’ll love trying all of the coffees at Buzzed Bull!
5. Sugar Bears Café And Creamery

We can’t talk about the best Pigeon Forge coffee shops without mentioning Sugar Bears Café and Creamery! Our snack shop doesn’t just have sweet treats and ice cream; we also offer everyone’s favorite hot beverage. Enjoy it black or as a latte, or if you’re feeling truly crazy, you can ask to get a shot of espresso put into one of our milkshakes!
Once you try these Pigeon Forge coffee shops, you’ll want to go every day of your trip! It’s a great way to start the day or get a little bit of energy you need before heading over to our Snowpark!
