What a refreshing stop after a kind hot day of riding. The food was delicious. The ladies were delightful. Home brewed tea is refreshing while sitting above a stream watching nature!! We will be back for sure!!

My wife and I stopped by with another couple while out motorcycling in the area. Very nice little shop just out of town. My buddy and his wife split an Italian sandwich and could barely finish it. I had the same thing and couldn't finish it. My wife had a tuna something ? Sandwich and also couldn't finish it. I... More

Katz has the best soup and sandwiches. I love their chicken salad, best I ever had. Their soups are so yummy, and we love their side salads. Well worth the money. Best food in Tellico Plains. Ron and Deborah Singer

This is my second trip to Tellico Kat's on the Cherohala Skyway, and I have to say they still put out one of the best sandwiches money can buy. This time I had the italian sub, it was piled high with cappocola ham and provolone cheese - after eating it for such, I was still full at dinnertime.

I had a fantastic turkey salad. Fresh, loaded with goodies and reasonably priced, made and served up in 10 minutes or so. Everyone else had sandwiches and all said they were very happy with the quality and quantity of food they received.

One of my Dad's favorite places is Kats Deli on the Tellico River, just up from downtown (giggle) Tellico Plains. We have had several handmade sandwiches, but our all time favorite is the Reuben on Rye. Take your time and eat out on the back porch... allow the slow river to relax your day while you enjoy that good sammy...... More

This is a coffee shop, plus sort of a diner. The coffee, food and desserts are good. They have tables overlooking the river and great ambiance.

My husband and I are 'frequent flyers' at Kats which offers delicious food made with quality ingredients. They create combinations to please your tastebuds and serve it up in a friendly atmosphere along the beautiful Tellico River. We couldn't ask for more. Homemade soups. Huge sandwiches with fresh deli ingredients. Innovative sides. Mouthwatering deserts. All at a very reasonable price.... More

The sanwiches are good a little over priced but good. I really liked the location but I seriously think a sandwich shouldn't be 6 and 7 dollars. I mean it's not like it's a submarine sandwich

Very friendly folks! Reasonable prices for great sandwiches, homemade goodies (butterscotch pumpkin pie!), and local art for purchase. Beautiful views of the river from seating on the porches.
