“The ONLY healthy choice in town!”

Restaurant details
Reviewed August 27, 2012

This is the only health food store/restaurant in Gatlinburg and is a one woman show. How Jan does it is amazing. I can get wheat grass shots here, my supplements...everything I need as a cancer survivor, to live a healthier lifestyle. My daughter and I had lunch there today and the veggie wrap exceeded my expectations by far. The Whole Earth Grocery is quirky and fun, the parking is free and plentiful and it a worth the visit!

My wife has numous allergies and we find that natrual food places have the best for her. However this place was dismal. No produse, the "cafe" was also being used to store supplies and the shelves were filled mostly with attempts at "Hippie" era shirts. We were disappointed. Do not waste the time here.

We are sorry you were disappointed with our store. We often accommodate people with food allergies with great success. However, when allergies are unusual or numerous, advance notification is needed to allow us time to prepare something special. Which we will happily do.

As a reminder, we are an independently owned natural foods store with a lunch cafe. Our shelves are stocked with many different "supplies" consisting of groceries, dairy products, frozen foods, vitamins/supplements, aromatherapy, health and beauty aids, gifts and yes some clothing. Our "hippie" clothing would be our tie dye's that we do ourselves. They have been wildly popular with locals and tourists of all ages. We truly enjoy our diverse customers and try to provide something for everyone.

Jan now has wheat grass! You can stop in for a shot anytime! Love this place for anything healthy. Their food is always fresh and yummy. The only vegetarian option in town.

Wonderful, all supplies there are very healthy and meals are VERY tasty. The owner (lady) has lots of knowledge about Health Foods. We learned even newer things from her and new health foods that we weren't aware of. We will revisit each time we come to Gatlinburg.

This quaint place has the most simple, delicious lunch menu. We had a salmon burger and chicken salad sandwich on Ezekiel bread. Hard to find places like this away from the tourist. Very refreshing.
