Southside favorite relocates downtown, better than ever
Just in time for the holidays, Chattanooga’s favorite Southside coffeehouse will be packing its bags and moving to historic Martin Luther King Boulevard.
The Camp House’s new location, which opens in December, will match the fast-paced lifestyle of downtown Chattanooga with an expanded menu that includes breakfast, bites, brunch and sandwiches. Six craft beers will be available on tap and the new spot will also be adding a selection of wines to the menu.The relocated restaurant will open at 7 a.m. and serve food until 9 p.m.
In order to spice up the kitchen, Matt Busby, executive director of the Camp House, recruited local chef extraordinaire Jose Alfaro and Dan Rubino, an award-winning culinary master from New York City. Rubino earned his honors for opening Café Mirage, a three-time New York Times Critics Choice award winner for “Best Restaurant of the Year.”
Along with a new address, The Camp House will also be treating Chattanooga to the bao bun. This delicious type of sandwich, a steamed bun filled with vegetables, meats, and cheeses, will be served in a Chattanooga restaurant for the very first time. The bao originated in China and its popularity has risen in recent years. Six different types of bao buns will be offered on the menu, and each week they will introduce a mouth-watering bao bun special.
One entrée sure to be a Scenic City favorite is the Chattabao. This savory standout is stuffed with pimento cheese, bacon, avocado, pickled slaw and a house-made spicey sauce. It promises to satisfy even the harshest critic’s appetite.
Downtown Chattanooga needs energy in the morning, and the Camp House prides itself on brewing the city’s freshest cup of coffee. It’s known for introducing Chattanooga to brews from all over the world, and the tradition will continue at the new location.
Along with a hot cup of coffee, breakfast lovers can continue to order The Camp House Waffle. One of the most popular items on the menu, the Camp House Waffle is topped with berries, granola, yogurt and syrup. This treat ensures a healthy start to the morning.
For an afternoon pick-me-up, look no further than the Camp House’s “bites and sweets,” menu. Featuring bruschetta, cheese platters, and an assortment of hummus dips, these quick snacks will revitalize your energy without overstuffing your belly.
The Camp House not only provides the public with great food and fresh coffee, but it also brings the entertainment. Every weekend, the restaurant transforms into a venue that will continue to play host to some of the country’s most exciting musical acts.
Restaurant-goers will be encouraged to dine at the Camp House’s outdoor heated patio. The patio will stay open all day and on the weekends provide a place for guests to drink wine and eat food without paying a cover for the music act of the evening.
At the Camp House, everyone is a part of their family, and this holiday season, they will unlock the doors to their new home and invite everyone inside for hot coffee, a warm meal and lots of good vibes.
They are all about great coffee & beer, friendly community, and lots of great music!
