Lunch

Amazing and healthy lunch spot just off the main strip downtown. Wraps, sandwiches, and salads are all amazing. Add a carrot juice and wheat grass shot to your meal and you'll feel like a million bucks when you leave. Can't say enough great things about this place.

The lunch cafe has great food. They have a nice selection of sandwiches and salads, and use organic ingredients when possible. The chicken salad is some of the best I have ever eaten. The coffee is also very good and there is a nice selection of healthy drinks. If you are looking for tasty food that is a healthy alternative... More

This shop has a little bit of everything...a Flash Gordon laser, purple Ball canning jars, antiques, incense, cloths, and a cute cafe. Wish I would have known about the food here before eating at Papa John's. It smelled wonderful and the prices were decent. It's off the main path, so you won't be bombarded with tons of people. Coffee smelled... More

My wife and I are focused on eating healthy, some would say to an extreme. We focus on buying only organic, non-GMO food. When we visit Gatlinburg we primarily pack in our own food because there are very few local sources of truly healthy food. We discovered Whole Earth and decided to try it. They have a limited stock of... More

I'm like preservatives and have no issue with GMOs, but I found many things at Whole Earth that were a delight. Natural sodas, yogurt made right, and sandwiches made with fresh ingredients... this store does have something for everyone.

Paid a visit for lunch today and we were very impressed with our choices, the chicken salad sandwich (on very good gluten free bread) and the lentil burger - both were really tasty and deceptively filling! Will be back tomorrow to pick up some sandwiches to go, for our drive home.

We stopped in twice to eat lunch on our weeklong vacation to Gatlinburg. This is basically a small cafe in a local heath food store. They have a selection of herbs and vitamins, candy, various tie die items, etc. We were hungry when we arrived there and tried the lentil burger and chicken salad sandwich/wrap and enjoyed both. Their pasta... More

Not a very large variety and everything was expensive. We went there to find groceries to buy for lunches and only found 2 frozen dinners.

Whole Earth Grocery Cafe is very near our TreeTops condo, and my wife finds a reason to visit several times during the week. We recommend the Salmon burger and salads to go for the Condo fridge. My wife also shops for various supplements. Lots of free parking. This small plaza has seen better days.
