“Great Little Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

My family visited Elizabethton and asked a local antique shop owner where he ate in town. He recommended Bonnie Kate.

I was not sure about it when we first went in. We arrived right before closing but they were very friendly and served us. Our server was exceptionally friendly and knew the shop owner by name.

The cafe has a full culinary kitchen and the chef and sous chef both wore very clean clothes. Everything is obviously homemade and freshly made everyday. The chef came out to see how everything was and if we needed anything. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend the cafe to anyone visiting Elizabethton.

“TRY THE BONNIE KATE CAFE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

Went to the Bonnie Kate Cafe with a group of friends. The wait staff was very friendly.
Our waiter explained the specials and answered any questions we had concerning
the menu. The menu consists of sandwiches, salads, wraps, crossaints and
many other items. Breakfast is offered as well. There is also a theater attached
to the cafe with first run movies should you want to see a movie before or after you
eat. We enjoyed our visit at Bonnie Kate and will go back next time we are in
Elizabethton.
