Jinan's Kitchen + The Mad Priest = An explosive combo!
Did you ever get the monthly pop-up lunch from Jinan's Kitchen at Mad Priest Coffee Roasters on Broad Street last year? We loved sharing Jinan & Wahab's delicious Iraqi food with Chattanooga...but it was pretty tight in the roastery with all the coffee and food and people. ;)
Now we've got space at The Mad Priest, our all-day cafe & bar on Cherry Street downtown, and we are super stoked to have them take over our kitchen and bring you some old favorites and new dishes, too. Please note this pop-up is first come, first served, so you might wanna come on the earlier side if you want to be sure to get food!

Welcome to The Mad Priest, and to the timeless rituals of communion, revelry, and friendship. We believe that good drinks open our minds to new possibilities, spark creativity, and bridge people and cultures. Our endeavor is to continue in the tradition of the early coffee houses of the Ottoman Empire that were places of socializing, intellectual discourse, political debate, and of course, lots of chess. We’re so glad you’re here with us to celebrate the array of color and culture that is our world. Cheers!
