An Ultra-Marathon and a Restaurant Review: Rembrandt's Coffee House

{the smoky mountains, literally}

This past weekend I traveled to Chattanooga, TN with my husband and best friends for the StumpJump 50k, an ultra-marathon. The StumpJump is the largest and most competitive 50k trail race in the Southeast. The race took place on the beautiful singletrack of Signal Mountain and Walden Ridge, and featured a liberal dose of mountain stone and over 4,400 feet of elevation gain. I know what you are thinking, impressive and crazy. These men are real men.

As the boys raced, I indulged in girlfriend time. We ate, shopped, got manicures and ate some more. Could a long weekend be any better?

At the beginning:
Walking into Rembrandt's was walking into a typical morning at a coffee shop, bursting full at the seams. A good, warm vibe.

Service at Rembrandt's hindered the overall experience, as they were overly busy and not the most friendly people I've ever met.

Drink List:
Extensive coffee bar with a diverse list of flavors and soy milk as an option!

The lattes topped the charts, served in large white ceramic mugs to stay, and paper to-go cups if you don't have time to linger. On our trip, we stopped at Rembrandt's twice, the first day I indulged in a pumpkin spice soy latte, and the second day I enjoyed a macadamia nut soy latte. Both were out of this world and I still cannot decide which one was better. Regarding the food, I only ordered a bowl of fruit, as they didn't have a very vegan-friendly menu. The only other vegan option was a "Health Nut Breakfast Wrap," which was a whole wheat wrap filled with peanut butter, bananas, strawberries and granola.

Vibrant morning scene with tight indoor seating as well as a large outdoor patio available.

Convenient street parking.


In the end, after visiting twice, Rembrandt's Coffee House is a definite winner for your morning latte routine!
