The coffee is the best in Cherokee. The staff is very friendly and the baristas know what they are doing when it comes to making coffee. Don't miss the chance for a good latte. Prices are reasonable too.

Good Coffee, comfortable fun seating inside and outside. Little water park for the kids right beside it. Clean inside. They do not serve breakfast but do have some little munchies.

Although the service was a bit slow, the coffee here was freshly made each time we visited. The frappés were just right with freshly made whipped cream!

The shop now has a new name but the same great service and its where the locals hang out too. Prices are good and the choices are more than Star Bucks.

Come here every year for a good latte and other coffees. Not a place for food. Plenty of places to sit inside and outside you get a great view if the river. The name has been changed to Cherokee Coffee. Still our favorite.

Means no coffee for us! Tribal Grounds must now go by Cherokee Coffee and online directions are not accurate at all. When we finally came upon Cherokee Coffee we walked in the front door only to be told they were closed. It was 5:55 pm....More
