A busy place with good baristas and good coffee in the downtown district of Cookeville TN. Not too far off 40 for a pit stop.

Poet's has a decent college vibe if that is what you are looking for. Their coffee is above average.

I enjoyed going here with my daughter for iced coffees and iced chai. I believe in supporting local business and this place is a great alternative to the coffee chains out there. There are two rooms that you can use ,the back room is quieter...More

My son and I saw our favorite CrossFitters at Mayhem pick up coffee from Poet's. We were on a road trip to Cookeville and searched out Poet's. We weren't disappointed. We both had an iced coffee and a chocolate chip muffin. So good! Cute shop....More

Stopped in for iced drinks for our road trip. I loved my iced "porch swing" with bourbon caramel flavor - who knew that was a thing?! Adorable sitting areas and great menu.

Needed to hammer out some work with my afternoon espresso. Poet's was the perfect venue. Definitely a great café to catch up on some work or with a good friend.

The daily drip is my favorite. Poets is a wonderful place to get coffee, a meal, and many other things. I highly recommend their place!

This local coffee shop / hangout is right downtown in this beautiful little town. All of the expected coffee based beverages as well as teas, chai, and fruit drinks. College kids studying, hipsters discussing life, and artistic types just hanging out.
