CJ and Company
Ranked #52 of 111 Restaurants in Bristol
Cuisines: American
Description: a small, intimate atmosphere cafe just off the main street in Bristol, TN/VA frequented by local business people. Bristol is a major antique shopping center, considered the historical seat of Blue Grass and Country music. This is a cafe well-known by locals. I just wonder how well it is known by tourists. My wife and I eat there occasionally when we are in Bristol for the fresh and well-prepared food.

“Cute and quiet with good food”
Reviewed July 24, 2011

This little cafe is hidden on a side street off the main street of Bristol, TN/VA (the state line divides the two cities in the middle of State Street). The day before we decided to eat at this cafe, we noticed they offered specials, listed on a chalkboard on the sidewalk. (The advertised "New York Rueben" attracted our attention.) The menu offered a variety of sandwiches, soups and salads. The Greek salad (special for the day) we each ordered was served on a dinner-size plate, consisted of a variety of fresh spring greens on a bed of Romaine, red onions, a generous number of greek olives and plenty of Feta cheese, a very generous portion for $6.95. We opted for the additional grilled chicken breast for only $2 more. It was almost more than we could eat. The only negative for this dish was the dressing, a rather vinagery-oily Italian-type, which thankfully was served on the side. We were served by a young man who attended to our needs frequently and respectfully. Our wait time after we ordered seemed somewhat excessive, but the quality of the food made the wait worthwhile. Other patrons seemed to be local business people, which we took to be a good sign.
