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!

We had breakfast here and the food was good but not spectacular. For what we got I felt it was a little over priced. Waitress was friendly and service was good. Food was not as hot as it should have been but not cold either. Would try this place again to see if it was just our luck that day... More

We stopped at the Firefly Cafe twice for lunch in Townsend, I think I had their chicken strips, they were really good, I also had a burger and that was average. They serve their drinks in little mason jar which I though was pretty cool.

Not bad, had a fried green tomato BLT that was delicious. Was hoping for a little more. Limited menu on Sunday and that was disappointing to me. Food quality average I would say, will go back and try a few more items.

We discovered this little diner during our last trip to the Smokies. Wait staff is very friendly. Food is very good. Mashed Potatoes are to die for! They need a larger seating area. Had to wait 15 - 20 minutes to be seated one night. They were turning customers away at closing time. Would definitely dine there again. Can't wait... More

Cute, clean, and tasty. Great for breakfast. Limited for dinner. Chef willing to accommodate special diet. All the employees were exceptional. And the coffee was good too. Try the Firefly French Toast or the Smokey Mountain Mash.
