Although next door to a Dollar General in a strip center, this small yellow exterior clapboard-looking cafe is excellent. We stopped by for breakfast but there is a wide variety of lunch options too including the most colossal grilled cheese! The service is excellent as well. Most meals are under $10

I just love this little place! I am hooked on the fried green tomato BLT sandwiches - what a great combo and one not found anywhere else.

This little café is under new management and what a difference! The menu is creative but still has favorite comfort foods. Food is fresh, service is fast & friendly, décor is inviting, and plenty of parking. It's become our favorite place to eat in the Townsend / Maryville area. Well worth the drive. We've eaten breakfast and lunch there so... More

Unfortunately on the front door is a note that the Cafe has closed due to personal commitments. Very sad to see it close. Hopefully it can reopen someday!
