About
We're Open! If you're craving good food and good people, there's no better restaurant to stop in Townsend than the Apple Valley Cafe Express. Start your day with the fresh, locally-roasted coffee. Or try the "Breakfast of Champions" with Scrambled Eggs and a Fried Apple Pie! At lunch, experience Townsend's Best Burgers and "Build your own Masterpiece" at our new toppings bar! We have over 30 toppings to choose from, including all the fixins plus Bacon Jam Spread, Feta Cheese Spread, and our very own sauces, sold in Apple Valley General Store. Or, chow down on our in-house smoked pulled BBQ! Then, cool off in the afternoon on our Beer Garden patio with a Calfkiller draft beer, a vintage Coke,

Great location, setting, service and amazing food. I had the ham and jalapeño pimiento cheese sandwich. I wished we lived closer just for this sandwich. We were traveling with our goldendoodle, they have fresh water available and a doggy area for potty breaks.

This was a stop on a Tennessee Mountain Tour, however it was so good we went back a couple days later, specifically for the fried apple pie! It was not overly crowded. The staff was friendly and the prices were reasonable.
