Our group has known Elvira for several years when she worked at a restaurant in Townsend, TN. She recently opened her Cafe in Wears Valley, and we've eaten breakfast once last year, and breakfast and dinner this year. Breakfast consists of local ingredients and have a "home cooked" quality. Likewise, dinners also use local ingredients.
Both the food and service are outstanding, as the crowds in the Cafe prove! Elvira can often be seen running back and forth helping servers, as well as being cashier. The food is prepared at the front portion of the Cafe, where, for example, one can watch the chefs prepare crepes and other breakfast items.
Elvira's Cafe is about a 15 minute drive from either Townsend or Sevierville
