With the combination of intense traffic as we neared Smoky Mountain National Park and not seeing a roadside rest since 100 miles ago, Sevierville was our final pitstop on this Thanksgiving escapade to the forest. Besides desperately needing to pee, I like to drink Via on the hiking trails and was fresh out. Great service and clean; an all-around beautiful Starbucks experience.

After an amazing (still-to-be-uploaded-to-Wordpress) adventure in the Smoky’s, nothing brings you back to “civilization” like a roadside rest and a strong drip coffee. Having little hope for a Starbucks store between the park and Louisville (a 6+ hour drive), we had stopped off in Jalisco, TN for a canned double shot at a gas station before finding this beauty in London, KY. Bam. One-stop shopping with a clean place to pee, a drip coffee, and a Steak N Shake next door.
