The place is a little small and not a lot of stock but the prices were good and we were at least able to find the things we wanted.

The tuna salad was just what I needed after hiking in the mountains. I am gluten free and it was challenging to find good organic options over the weekend. This is a gem for anyone who is seeking a healthy meal in Gatlinburg. Thank you, Trip Advisor for listing this place.

This cafe/market is possibly the greatest find off the parkway. Everything is made "in house" with fresh ingredients. They offer a wide selection of all natural and organic products at a reasonable price. Besides food products, they also sell homemade soaps. They have all natural chocolate bars in an exotic flavor assortment, plus the more traditional flavors. They sell huge,... More

Thank you, TripAdvisor, for pointing us toward this little jewel! We had delicious Black Bean Burgers, mine Gluten Free, in a little nook of the rustic and cozy store. I got a tasty Coconut Bliss Bar out of the freezer for dessert. Great way to end a yummy lunch on a warm day after hiking. And bonus points to the... More

Had a very tasty lunch here in the midst of a lot of bad food choices! Good healthy, organic foods. Quaint little eating area with a grocery , as well. I had researched before we arrived in Gatlinburg, and was only disappointed by the luke warm reception of the proprietor on this particular day😞

We found this place when we did the salt and pepper museum. Although we didn't eat lunch here, we got a few snacks and beverages. Lots of holistic finds and healthy things you won't find just anywhere. It was worth the stop and glad we found it.

On vacation with family from Wisconsin. Really unique spot with other cool places around it. Perfect for specialty foods and drinks.

For the same $ of a happy meal, you can get something just as satisfying but much healthier; our office favorites are the veggie wrap, and the tuna and chicken wraps. And they are a local store, so you are supporting the local economy when eating or shopping here. I tried their salmon burger, and while it tasted really good,... More

While visiting Gatlinburg and need a break from the "fried", visit this cute little cafe. It has everything, health food store, vintage clothing, handmade items and even a few antiques. Menu is small but on the healthy side. Try the chicken salad on he Ezekiel bread served with homemade potato salad. All meals are brought to you on local artisan... More

The best place in the area for a healthy lunch. I recommend the chicken salad or the black bean burger, accompanied by the pasta or potato salad. You can't go wrong. Grab a bottle of Blue Sky grape soda for the sweet tooth or a humble Honest Tea out of the fridge, and you've got a nice, peaceful lunch in... More
