“A Local Secret”
Review of Christy's Cafe and Bakery - CLOSED

Christy's Cafe and Bakery

Restaurant details
Reviewed January 27, 2012

Christy's is one of those places in Cookeville that apparently is a secret among the locals. It's locally owned and operated and is hidden among all the chain restaurants in the area.
I went for breakfast and was not disappointed. The restaurant is quite large with options of dining in or carry-out. The menu is very expansive and covers everything from breakfast, lunch and supper.
You seat yourself and you will be greeted by a cheerful and friendly wait staff. I ordered the omelet with ham, bacon and sausage. I also ordered hash browns and wheat toast. My plate of food arrived in about 5 minutes and you could tell it was freshly prepared. A huge omelet with crispy hot hash browns. The wheat toast was obviously baked on the premises, nutty and crunchy.
A great find and so much better than the chains down the road. Perfect for kids too.
Highly recommend it. No website yet, but you can find Christy's on Facebook.

We have been here numerous times. The breakfast is VERY good and you certainly get plenty of food and excellent service - Linda is the best. Dinner is excellent too, especially the Fried Chicken - BEST around. They will almost always ask if you want a to-go cup for your drink. I agree with plenty of parking, can be easily missed, but is certainly great to get in and out of - why wait in long lines at chain restaurants for everyday foods.

Christy's is located off of Interstate Drive in a business type strip mall. It is easily missed if you are not looking for it. Plenty of parking available. The venue seems to connect to another business.
We have dined here two times and both were really good. They have an evening menu as well as a lunch menu. We enjoyed the chicken, vegetables were really good and the homemade pies are excellent. Good sweet iced tea. Good reasonably priced meals with good service and plenty of tables and booths to choose from.
Christy's is located on the same strip as all the chains in Cookeville, just a little harder to notice, but well worth a stop.

Great food when other Cookeville restaurants have a long wait. Somewhat of a southern cafeteria upscaled, Christy's has great sandwiches and salads too. Very clean and friendly. On the western side of Interstate Drive, part of a building with other commerical businesses. Give them a try when your other favorites are packed. Closed Sundays.
