“Smokey Mountain Gem”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Wow! Some of the best places are found in some of the smaller places. This is very true about Our Place in Cosby, TN. Even the name of their street (Cricket Hollow Road) adds to the shopping experience. A super place for very good fair trade coffee. They have a large collection of new and used books that are reasonably priced. The lady who owns the store can direct you to what you are looking for but a lot of the fun is in the search. We have been on the road for 4 weeks and stopped at many places. This is by far one of the best.

“Coffee and book lovers paradise”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

We discovered this place on a trip to Gatlinburg, and we are already talking about going back so we can go here again! The coffee is one of the best cups of coffee that I have ever had, and the bookstore is wonderful. It has so much more than just books, but the book selection is amazing. Needless to say, we had lots of coffee and came home with quite a stack of books. I can't wait to go back to see what we find next time!

“Book lovers Paradise where coffee and company keep you coming back year after year.”
Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

It is amazing the number of years I have went by " Our Place" and never visited. One afternoon I did stop by and we put " Our Place" on our shopping list every year! School Teachers delight! Book lovers come one come all. The best coffee in the state of Tennessee!! Very unique shop! Gifts, books, neat things that you must have. The owners are a delight to the experience of " Our Place". As the sign out front says...we are worth turning around for!!!

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

Harold and Deanne were a pleasure to visit with. They have an immense selection of nonfiction books- from gardening to biographies to music legends. They will brew you a cup of joe, and refill it until you are ready to leave. This was one of our favorite stops on our trip!

“Interesting place...”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Definitely not your Gatlinburg touristy shop... The coffee was pretty decent. I don't know if it was fabulous enough to "turn around for", but an interesting, eclectic stop anyway.
