Sweetwater is happy to offer PENNY WEDNESDAY when senior citizens and veterans can purchase an “in house” cup of coffee (with a refill) for just a penny. How long has it been since we have seen a Penny Cup?

The beautiful Village of Sautee is alive and well.  Music every Friday night during late spring, summer, and early fall.

First  Friday of each month offers bluegrass and old time music at Inside Out.  The rest of the Friday evenings you will find music at Sweetwater Coffeehouse with local and regional artists performing traditional and original music from many genres.  Music starts at 7 and goes until 9.

Please visit the Sautee Nacoochee Community Association on line to find out about all of the fantastic events taking place there over the next few months.  Programming is the best it has ever been!

Sweetwater offers breakfast and lunch daily.  Choose from a toasted bagel with cream cheese and Hillside Orchard jams, home made chicken salad on a bed of organic greens, Jessi’s Club – a hearty meal for a hungry man, or eggs any way you like them.

Those are only a few of your options.  The choices are limited only by the resources we have available in our kitchen.  In the summer you can always count on garden fresh tomatoes and organic greens.

Sweetwater Coffeehouse (Sweetwater) is and has been a successful Sautee business for over 18 years. The brainchild of Eric and Anna Anderson, Sweetwater was purchased by Carolyn Hayes in December of 2008. Carolyn and her son Zach have continued to provide the place and service that Sweetwater is to the community.

cup_and_coffee_fall_6616wSweetwater is committed to carrying top quality products at affordable prices. Fair Trade Certified and organically grown coffees and  teas top the list of products offered. The coffees and teas are sold by the cup or by the pound.

All of the baked products are made in house and, with the exception of the brownies, are created from scratch.  The brownies start out from a mix, but then are modified with espresso, Georgia pecans, syrups, spices and flavorings into something  totally all their own. Sweetwater’s sour cream pound cakes are always a treat, and if you arrive at Sweetwater at just the right time, you can have a piece just out of the oven.

To accommodate the needs of our growing community, Sweetwater is now offering made from scratch soups, along with grilled cheese and club sandwiches made with breads from The Country Bake Shop. Our regulars come back for our egg and cheese bagel sandwiches, and daily specials such as quiche, Sautee Caprece, and tarragon chicken salad.

If you are in need of a special gift or card, Sweetwater can help. Our specialty coffees and teas are available by the pound or box. The beautiful mugs and not always so beautiful but very folksy face jugs are made by local potters who love their craft and demonstrate that love in the pieces they create.

On our walls you will find original paintings, prints and cards by local artists who honor Sweetwater by placing their work with us.  We have home made quilts and pillows, re-created jewelry, and clocks made from  photographs.


Sweetwater owes much of it’s success to its location on Highway 17 very near where 17 intersects with Highway 255 at the Old Sautee Store. The Sautee-Nacoochee Community Center is located less than a mile down Hwy 255. The village of Sautee is quickly becoming a destination as it adds specialty shops featuring products that cannot be found just anywhere. Sweetwater is proud to be a part of the the village of Sautee’s business and cultural community.

Sweetwater is very aware that the support it has received over the years from the Sautee community, and from customers in North Georgia and beyond has made Sweetwater what it is. Sweetwater has become a home away from home for many. Our goal is that Sweetwater will always be so.
