“Small portions.”
Review of Crossroads Cafe

Crossroads Cafe
Ranked #6 of 12 Restaurants in Sewanee
Restaurant details
Reviewed February 3, 2014

Not much to talk about, had to-go brought in, the typical Asian noodle/rice thing, but not much to speak of in terms of originality or thought--the to-go containers weren't even half-full, and we dropped close to $50, including tip for a meal for four. If this were located in a metro area, it wouldn't have lasted 15 minutes. Pump up the portions, as rice and noodles cost nothing. Perception is reality.

A real gem on the mountain. The menu changes all the time but Irene has her finger on the dial. Enjoy!

Crossroads Cafe gives a much-needed boost to dining options on the mountain: creative, fresh, and delicious Asian cuisine served in a casual, but comfortable and welcoming space. Live music on a Tuesday evening was a pleasant surprise and backdrop to an excellent dinner.

Our group of 13 enjoyed a multi-course feast planned and cooked by Irene, the Singapore native who owns the restaurant with her husband, a native of Tennessee: both gracious and hospitable hosts.

Our meal began with steamed dumplings, followed by fresh salad greens, beets, lentils, and a variety of meat and vegetable offerings: the beef curry was outstanding, as was the shrimp and calamari; the broccoli was incredible: crisp,and spicy. Dessert was a beautiful fruit tray with sliced apples, grapes, strawberry jam. A variety of herbal teas are available, as well as a selection of beers. Bring your own wine and they will provide the glasses.
All in all, a memorable feast and delightful evening in a charming place.
