I make the drive from Johnson City to Nashville, TN quite often, and I would love to know about any good stops for coffee along the way. I'm happy to go out of my way a little bit (10mi) for good coffee!
On that note, any suggestions for good, quick, and cheap places to stop for lunch/ice cream, that would be great too. I've been stopping in surburbs by default, but I figure that there's bound to be something more interesting in knoxville. Thanks! :)
