A place for coffee and conversation.  A place to meet new friends and gather with old friends.  A place to sit and relax.  A place to be.  Located in the Old City in Downtown Knoxville, TN.

The Third Place
The "third place" is a term coined by Ray Oldenburg in his influential book, "The Great Good Place". Third places are where people can regularly visit to take it easy, meet with friends and neighbors and whoever just happens to show up. That's our goal...to create a space where you can meet your neighbors, start new friendships, discuss ideas, interact with others, and enjoy delicious coffee and tea.

Stop in and enjoy a delicious specialty coffee drink, a fine organic green tea or warm banana nut muffin. At Remedy you'll find a comfortable atmosphere with cozy seating, fresh coffee, good books, board games, free WiFi, smiling faces and as much local artist flavor as possible.


More Than Great Coffee
What really makes Remedy Coffee unique is what we don't do. We don't have a goal of earning a profit. At least not for our own pockets. Every single penny of our profit will be given to ideas, people, and organizations in Downtown Knoxville. We will use our proceeds to make a difference and help the people in our neighborhoods.

Direct Trade Coffee
Our coffee is 100% organic, Direct Trade Certified and regionally roasted so you can count on it being as fresh as possible every time.
Book Swap
We have a pretty large collection of some of the strangest and best books you will ever stumble upon. Find a comfortable seat and start reading. Want to borrow a book? No problem, just leave a book for someone else. We call it the Remedy Book Swap...it's free, it's fun, it's fair.
