My wife and I were enjoying a relaxing time in Crossville and stopped at Kali’s Kitchen, a favorite of locals. The restaurant had a Southern welcoming charm. The restaurant’s specialty is breakfast all day. We knew we were in a good place with a busy restaurant in the middle of the day. The... read more

It sounds like this is the place to go for breakfast. We had lunch there recently and as others mentioned, it's standard country cooking. Nothing remarkable, but decent. I would say the prices are fair and our waitress was courteous. The restaurant is clean.

You can count on Kali's for a consistently good breakfast. One time when I ordered eggs-over-medium, I had to ask the waitress to tell the cook it was the first time I ever had perfectly-prepared eggs-over-medium!

My wife and I tried Kali's for breakfast after checking reviews on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. My wife had the veggie omelet and I had the big breakfast. They both were excellent. Our food came out quickly and the staff was very friendly and checked on us often. We even chatted with a local couple and they told us... More

We are from GA and were on vacation for our 1 year anniversary in July 2015. We stopped in for breakfast. It was amazing. Service was great and everyone was very friendly and helpful. French toast was just like Grandma used to make. Hubby loved the eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy. We love local restaurants like this one and will... More
