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

I truly enjoyed the Whole Earth Grocery Cafe. Excellent, loved the staff, great attitudes! I also found this to be a wonderful place to get things I needed (such as apple juice) very close to our hotel room, instead of having to run all the way up to the Food City. Be sure to visit Whole Earth!

This is a great little place, with excellent sandwiches and friendly staff. It's well located, right in the middle of an assortment of stores to explore, so it's convenient for getting a bite while shopping.

Came over for a bite on the recommendation of the reviews on tripadvisor. The reviews were exactly right, amazing food! The roasted veggies were wonderful and the potato salad was one of the best I've ever eaten. This place was so good we made a point of going back before we left town.

We always make it a point to stop here on every trip to Gatlinburg. After eating candy, fudge, and fried street food (which are great, don't get me wrong!), Whole Earth provides a light, healthy alternative with some delicious food options. My husband and I decided to take a picnic to the mountains and ordered two chicken salad sandwiches. He... More

A charming little place where you can find some natural products. The atmosphere is relaxed. And, try the alternatively made cookies (my wife loved the coffee flavored)...excellent!

It is tucked away, but you will be glad you took the effort to find it. If you are vegan, you will be especially happy you found this place. The owner is almost always the one looking after you and preparing your food. Everything on the menu is unique and well prepared. The grocery store carries items you just wont... More

Wow!!! My boyfriend and I stopped for a quick bite and were VERY pleasantly surprised! The menu options are not many, yet I honestly have not tasted better vegan cafe/deli food. We had the black bean burger (SOOOO good!) and a veggie wrap (also super good!) and a greek salad. They also have fresh squeezed juice, which was phenomenal. My... More
