Grab a coffee while you shop.
A cup of coffee can power you through any shopping trip, so stop by Frothy Monkey before perusing Chattanooga Jewelry Company. Adjacent to the iconic Chattanooga Choo Choo, Frothy Monkey is a “breakfast through dinner” coffeehouse serving up espressos, lattes, mochas, and more, and their menu – featuring omelets, shrimp and grits, and other healthy fare – is a local favorite. The Chattanooga Jewelry Company is a newcomer to the Choo Choo scene, but with beautiful custom jewelry and watches, it’s already proven to be a Southside gem. frothymonkey.com / chattanoogajewelrycompany.com
