This cafe/market is possibly the greatest find off the parkway. Everything is made "in house" with fresh ingredients. They offer a wide selection of all natural and organic products at a reasonable price. Besides food products, they also sell homemade soaps. They have all natural chocolate bars in an exotic flavor assortment, plus the more traditional flavors. They sell huge, all natural cookies, in flavors to suit anyone. Ice cold beverages are offered in the cooler, as well as fresh coffee by the entrance. They have a delicious lunch menu that is affordable and healthy.

Today, my husband and I shared a chicken salad wrap with a side of pasta salad and a San Pellegrino. The chicken salad is fresh..NOT FROM A CAN!!! They put grape halves in their chicken salad which is an incredible and delicious pop of flavor. THIS is how chicken salad should be made every where! The wrap was STUFFED with chicken salad and topped with lettuce and juicy tomato slices. The pasta salad was tossed in a pesto sauce and was a perfect accompaniment. Our San Pellegrino was chilled and bubbly. There is a small dining area to the side of the main store. It is comfortable and cozy. There was another couple at a table, and the woman kept saying how great her food was. She actually turned to me and commented how wonderful her lunch was...repeatedly!

If you are looking for something off the beaten path, away from the crowds of the parkway, quaint and quiet....come here! The food is fresh and healthy. The prices are affordable and the owners are wonderful people! Give them your patronage...you won't be disappointed! We are lucky enough to live here and we hope they are in business for a long time to come. This was not our first visit and it will certainly not be our last!

Thank you, TripAdvisor, for pointing us toward this little jewel! We had delicious Black Bean Burgers, mine Gluten Free, in a little nook of the rustic and cozy store. I got a tasty Coconut Bliss Bar out of the freezer for dessert. Great way to end a yummy lunch on a warm day after hiking. And bonus points to the lady at Whole Earth Grocery for not giving us the Evil Eye for rolling in 15 minutes before the cafe closed. :D

Looking forward to going back!

Had a very tasty lunch here in the midst of a lot of bad food choices! Good healthy, organic foods. Quaint little eating area with a grocery , as well. I had researched before we arrived in Gatlinburg, and was only disappointed by the luke warm reception of the proprietor on this particular day

We found this place when we did the salt and pepper museum. Although we didn't eat lunch here, we got a few snacks and beverages. Lots of holistic finds and healthy things you won't find just anywhere. It was worth the stop and glad we found it.

On vacation with family from Wisconsin. Really unique spot with other cool places around it. Perfect for specialty foods and drinks.
