Jonesborough's

Living Room

 

COFFEE / TEA / ESPRESSO / CREPES / pastries / Vibes 

 

Located in Tennessee's oldest town, Jonesborough, the Corner Cup invites you to experience those good vibes with a cup of joe and a smile.

The Corner Cup is a spot to relax with a tasty beverage, a hand-made crepe, or a friendly conversation. It is the brainchild of Deborah Kruse, the patron saint of all things caffeinated in our little town. Situated on the corner of Main and Spring Streets, our cozy shop is right in the heart of Jonesborough's historic district. The sights, buildings, events, and the stories of Jonesborough are always close by. Strike up a conversation with a local and you're sure to get an earful of yarn about the many ways we love this place.

 

Our excellent coffee is roasted locally, so the flavor in your cup is always fresh. With an extensive array of organic teas, Italian sodas, and pastries and snacks, you'll be sure to find something you like. Each order is crafted with love by our trained baristas, and our lovely rooms encourage a relaxed vibe. See some local arts and crafts, and chat with a friend or two. We'd love to have you.

Thursday - Saturday 9am - 3pm, enjoy crepes from Krazy Krepes. We have a large menu of sweet and savory choices perfect for breakfast, brunch and lunch!

Deborah Kruse, owner

Growing up in Lander, Wyoming, Deb enjoyed spending her free time climbing trees, riding dirt bikes and later, orienteering. She spent twenty years in FedEx and the company's philosophy was "people, service, product: You take care of the people, you provide good service and product, and success will follow." With the traveling nature of her job, she found herself in many new cities, and the first place she always went was a local coffee shop. While she had many dreams of opening her own shop up one day, it wasn't until 2015 that this dream was to come to fruition. Since, she has enjoyed sharing and hearing people's stories and creating the experience that is Jonesborough's Living Room.

Deb, or as we like to call her "The Most Interesting Woman in the World," has a life story that could fill many a novel, so be sure to strike up a conversation with her the next time you stop by. 


Krazy Krepes

We make delicious savory and sweet Crepes for breakfast and lunch Thursday through Saturday, 9am-3pm!

Testimonials

The-Corner-Cup-2017_Photo-by-Whitney-S-Williams_02_sm.png
The Corner Cup really has become “Jonesborough’s Living Room”.... the place where the community meets, hangs out, and relaxes alone or in company. The coffee is locally roasted and consistently good, staff are friendly and competent, snacks are locally baked and tasty, seating is comfy and homey, and prices are very reasonable. The atmosphere is warm, welcoming, and inviting to all. It’s only been open a year, but it’s gotten hard to imagine our community without The Corner Cup! I love my daily latte.
— Deborah Burger
The best baristas and service in the Tri-cities area! Shop local and you won’t regret it.
— Katy Runge
When I think of a small town coffee shop, this is what I always envisioned. Absolutely lovely. The employees are friendly, knowledgeable, and are active in their community, outside of the shop.
— Katy Bledsoe
Such a cute place. Great selection of hot teas and friendly staff! Not to mention comfy places to enjoy the teas!
— Ashley Nicole Lane
How nice to have a “real” coffee shop in Jonesborough. The Corner Cup, located on the corner of Main St. and Spring St. is the perfect spot to meet friends and sample the wonderful fare Deb and her able crew offer. Atmosphere ....welcoming,cozy and hip!
