We were looking forward to eating here since it looked like one of the nicer restaurants in town and was favorably reviewed on TripAdvisor. The interior of the restaurant was nice and the dessert displays looked delicious. Unfortunately our experience went downhill when the food started to arrive.

Early dinner, It's terrible but I cannot remember what I ordered but I do remember the great choices of homemade items. We both ordered dessert and then did a swap at half time.

We ate here while on vacation in Townsend for the first time. They offer a nice entree and other choices for a vegetarian in a lovely setting. We sat outside on the front porch. Service was easy going and good. Be sure to take a walk across the hanging bridge over the river afterwards!

This restaurant has the best strawberry cake I've ever ate any were, but the Italian creme was a close second. Their sandwiches were excellent as well. They use wonderful homemade bread. We have eaten here twice and would highly recommend dining here.

I've never in my life had better French toast than I have had here. They're ingredients are fresh and love (and butter) have been poured into their food. This place is amazing you gotta try it

We had eaten here a few years back, but did not recall the food, and it looks nice, so we thought we would give it a try. We were seated promptly, but only one other table was occupied. I ordered a sandwich with brisket, ham, and cheese, with a side of mac and cheese. My husband got the hillbilly philly,... More

When we vacation in the Smokies, we always stop to eat at Miss Lily's Café. I love the tomato basil blue cheese soup, and the chicken salad croissant sandwich ALWAYS hits the spot! The food is fresh and delicious! Try her desserts and enjoy a nice cup of coffee after a fun day in the mountains! Her homemade cookies are... More
