We had our daughter's rehearsal dinner at Good Vibes. It was our first time visiting their restaurant and they did an amazing job. The dinners were excellent, the staff was attentive and friendly, and we had access to the open porch as well as the...inside restaurant. They did such a nice job. Excellent choice. We enjoyed the food so much we went back for breakfast a few days later. We were not disappointed. It was all tasty and we enjoyed every last bite. We will return when we are in the area.More

We came here on our last morning, and I wish we had discovered it sooner. This was the best breakfast I've had in forever. Their bacon is perfect. The outside dining area is dog friendly. The bathrooms were clean, the waitress was nice, and prices...were reasonable. Looking at the menu, I was a bit concerned about the prices but the portions are so big and so delicious that they're definitely worth it. There is a kids menu too. I would eat here again in a heartbeat.More

My husband and I saw the nice reviews for this place and went to check it out. At first we were frustrated because it took us to their old location which obviously there is no restaurant there( think it was called Healthy Vibes prior) and...we were getting hangry but we’re soooo happy we found it. We sat outside which was so nice because you are right next to the river. There are bags/ boards and a few little kid things to do if you have little ones. The servers were sweet and the food was delicious! My husband and I both got different wraps and we grabbed a cinnamon roll for the go! Definitely stop by if you need a place to eat in Townsend!More

Nice little place tucked back by the river. Nice view of the river. My family and I ate breakfast here before or long day of activities. Pancakes with pecans inside are amazing, huge, and very filling! Husband & daughter had scrambled skillets.

This is the best place for breakfast before you enter the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The staff was amazing, the food was so delicious, I wouldn’t change a thing about our visit. It’s authentic, warm, and inviting. It is a must see stop, even...if you just try a scone and coffee.More

Breakfast here was a real treat. We were warmly welcomed and seated outside next to the river. The food was excellent, and the staff accommodated a request for a sandwich to go for lunch in the park. Highly recommend for a delightful start to the...day.More

We’ve been here twice and will return again. It is a quaint place on the river with healthy dining options, but can splurge if you want on dessert. The staff is very friendly and it has a really nice atmosphere. I highly recommend the avocado...BLT sandwich. Thanks for a delicious meal!More

The best bacon chicken wrap ever!! I usually get a wrap once a week and every time these are delicious. Plus the bakery items are so good also.

We grabbed a late Sunday lunch. Their menu is mostly sandwiches, all fresh. I opted for the special of the day, the best pot roast I've had. Good for two meals. Another local spot to check out.

These folks seem to believe that an ounce or two is sufficient serving size for a hearty serving of pancakes. I had to ask for additional syrup four times. Each time they returned with another ounce or two. It was fairly ridiculous. The quality of...their food fell into the category of average. Service was slow-even though there weren’t any other customers.More
