Nestled within the Embassy Suites by Hilton on the corner of Gay Street and Union Avenue, our Downtown location – K Brew’s third store, to be precise – has become a local favorite. Fans of coffee, espresso, bagels and sightseeing will be sure to enjoy their time here!
K Brew Downtown is worth visiting for its fresh history, delicious menu, proximity to events and activities, and several backgrounds for great photos.
Curious about K Brew Downtown’s origin? Here’s the rundown, straight from the founders:
“In 2019, K Brew partnered with a new Hilton hotel in the heart of Downtown Knoxville for its third location. This was no ordinary hotel, however. “We became obsessed with the project that Hilton/Kana Hotel Group was building in Downtown Knoxville. The old building was an eye-sore right in the heart of our city, and the group was transforming it into a modern, chic hotel, creating a connection point between the prominent Gay Street and Market Square areas. From the first time we saw the plans, we wanted to be a part of that transformation.” -Pierce LaMacchia, CEO
K Brew’s third location quickly proved to be another home run shop, enabling the company to serve coffee and bagels to the many residents, workers, and hotel guests in Downtown Knoxville.
Despite being the more intimate of K Brew’s four locations, Downtown offers the full menu and makes no compromises. Here are some of the wonderful selections on K Brew’s menu, ranging from the traditional to the decadent:
- Bagels, bagel sandwiches, and a variety of delicious cream cheese spreads
- Cold Brew
- Drip Coffee
- Hot/Iced Tea and other non-coffee drinks
- Chocolate Chip Cookies
