Just last week at this time I had never heard of Sewanee Tennessee or The University of the South at Sewanee. As luck might have it, I stumbled into Sewanee on a business trip and after following the recommendation of a friend, I found myself at the Blue Chair Bakery and coffee shop, enjoying life.
If you could package everything good about the South on a lazy summer day, shake it up and serve it on a plate with a side of yes ma’am—you get the Blue Chair Bakery and Coffee Shop. This place is exactly what you would think a small town Mom and Pop sandwich shop to be. The building is a house converted into a restaurant so the dining area still has the feel of “Moms house”. The atmosphere is clean, quaint, and quiet. Service is exceptionally “small town” friendly and the sweet tea is just right. Not a whole lot of fancy frills, or fuss here. The food is right, equipped with that home cooking love and the price is where it should be. There are no cons here as honestly, the restaurant lives up to exactly what it claims to be. If you want a sexy black dress and bow ties spread, this isn’t the place for you, however if you are looking to forget about the daily rat race for a relaxing quiet meal—take a seat in the blue chair.
