If you are looking for clean/healthy meal, this is the place to go. A lot of the restaurants in the area are filled with fried and fat. This was a delicious change from the rest of the area. We will be sure to come back again on our next visit!

We went there twice for lunch during our stay in the Smokies. I had the chicken salad and my husband had the chicken wrap. Both excellent!

If you want healthy and delicious food for lunch this is the best place in Gatlinburg! Love the lentil burgers, chicken burrito Tuesdays, the BEST potato salad! Locally owned and they have a good selection of vegetarian groceries. Essential oils and supplements sold too. Love this place!

I had the chicken salad with a side of pasta salad and it was amazing. While the menu is somewhat small, the healthy and delicious options in a town where there is no healthy eating dining experience is a breath of fresh air. The store is small and limited supplies but the cafe is a great place to grab a... More

Very much like a whole foods. Love that all is organic. Excellent selection across the board. If you are from outside of Tennessee remember that grocery stores don't sell wine as they do elsewhere. Good produce, poultry, fish, prepared foods. Grass fed beef, pasture raised local eggs, nice cheese selection. A very pleasant surprise.

We usually visit on vacation and the place has always been great. Egg Salad on various breads, Greek Salad and the pumpkin bread are super. Lots of other items that are organic and health oriented. Coffee is great and the lady who works here is very nice and very professional. Great place to stop in.

I was thrilled to find this cafe in an area full of unhealthy touristy chains and southern cuisine. I ordered the lentil burger salad with shiitake sesame dressing. The burger was delicious with very nice flavor. The dressing was light and delicious. I do wish the salad had come with more greens as it was a small salad and I... More

Amazing and healthy lunch spot just off the main strip downtown. Wraps, sandwiches, and salads are all amazing. Add a carrot juice and wheat grass shot to your meal and you'll feel like a million bucks when you leave. Can't say enough great things about this place.

The lunch cafe has great food. They have a nice selection of sandwiches and salads, and use organic ingredients when possible. The chicken salad is some of the best I have ever eaten. The coffee is also very good and there is a nice selection of healthy drinks. If you are looking for tasty food that is a healthy alternative... More
