Cafe
“The coffee is good. More importantly, however, the place is packed with unique vintage bicycles as cycling is the owner's passion. But truly, if you take coffee seriously this just might be the best Chattanooga has to offer, though there are plenty of options. Like Mean Mug (which we mentioned in the food section as we feel that is their highlight), Velo has a great outdoor patio to enjoy when the weather permits.”
