The Coffee Collective – Sparta, Tennessee – 11/26/2019

We’ve been hitting the coffee scenes in Cookeville and Chattanooga pretty hard lately, so we decided to see what else might be available along our Tennessee route.

And, yay, we found something AWESOME!

And they are even open until 7pm!

The Coffee Collective!

The Coffee Collective has been in Downtown Sparta for a little over two years now.

But, the refurbished, warm, historically eclectic-style atmosphere with original brickwork and antique bicycle theme makes the place feel like it has been a part of the community forever!

I love nothing more than rolling into a quaint “new to us” town, and finding a locally owned coffee spot…

Even better when it has its own unique ambiance; a FABULOUS menu with a plethora of unique, flavorful creations; and, did I mention, they are open until 7pm!

Today, we hit up the seasonal specials and ordered a Rosemary Pecan Latte, as well as a Cranberry White Chocolate Mocha with whipped cream in all the right places!

But their regular drink menu is also filled with tempting choices! They have an extensive selection of coffees, espresso drinks, AND flavored hot teas!

The food menu lovingly pleaded for our consideration!

We went with the Verdina Flatbread with tomatoes, broccoli, mushrooms, and red onions.

It was SOOO good, I didn’t even want to share!

But, I’m nice.

So, I did.

And it was definitely big enough!

The Barista was super cool, and we enjoyed chatting with her about how much the Sparta area has grown in recent years.

Crossville, just to the East, is fairly well known for tourism in the area. Sparta, notsomuch. But, wow, it really should be.

She and I both agree that Downtown Sparta rivals Crossville for unique shops, cafes, eateries, and overall Small Town Spirit.

And it IS pretty magical!

But, it’s definitely not as small as I thought it was!
