My husband and I stopped while passing through. We decided to stop because of the reviews from others. I'm glad we did! Very small place but very friendly employees. The food was amazing. Bathrooms were clean. Not a lot of seating but there were a few tables inside and some on the porch overlooking the river. I will definitely consider... More

We had a panini and throughly enjoyed it. The porch by the river really added to the experience. When in Tellico, be sure to stop here for a sandwich!

This is a small place just outside Tellico Plains at the beginning of the Cherohala Skyway. We sat on the porch overlooking the river. Our sandwiches were tasty and reasonably priced. Wait staff was attentive and efficient. I would certainly recommend this restaurant.

Would definitely recommend Kat's deli at the start of the Cherohala Skyway! The sandwiches are delicious and what you would expect from an expensive delicatessen. My fiancé and I split a club sandwich on ciabatta after we saw the size. One of the best meals we have had on our recent motorcycle vacations. One of the best values so for... More

When you decide to drive the Cherohala Skyway, well the place to eat is Tellico Kats Deli. We stopped by yesterday (May 29, 2015) before we started our drive. I had the club sandwich on toasted wholewheat and she had the tuna and a bowl of soup. Both were excellent! We sat on the deck over looking the river. Perfect... More

Delicious food, great paninis. Staff were so nice and very accommodating for our little dog, even bringing her a treat. Awesome homemade desserts.
