We love this little place for a quick, healthy, lunch. The chicken salad is excellent, and comes with a nice side of pasta salad (there are other choices, but that is what I opt for each time). While your food is being prepared, you can wander around and check out the stuff for sale, which ranges from gluten-free mixes to... More

Cafe is open only 11-3 p but the food is delicious. My wife and I had the Lentil burger and was well pleased.

the folks was friendly and willing the assist. It was nice to have a place to go with my dietary requirements. Just be aware of the cafe hours! The hours are short (11-3pm). I would like to see an extension but I made it work. The juice bar was great and the juice shots are available at anytime.

We were glad to find a vegan dining spot, and not too bothered that the pickings were slim, but we were dismayed by both the quality of one of our meals, and the response we received when we voiced our opinion. My son ordered a roasted veggie wrap and, a third of the way through it, he blurted out that... More

We didn't eat here, but we did pop in for an emergency item, and the lady was knowledgeable of her products and very friendly!

If you are looking for clean/healthy meal, this is the place to go. A lot of the restaurants in the area are filled with fried and fat. This was a delicious change from the rest of the area. We will be sure to come back again on our next visit!

We went there twice for lunch during our stay in the Smokies. I had the chicken salad and my husband had the chicken wrap. Both excellent!

If you want healthy and delicious food for lunch this is the best place in Gatlinburg! Love the lentil burgers, chicken burrito Tuesdays, the BEST potato salad! Locally owned and they have a good selection of vegetarian groceries. Essential oils and supplements sold too. Love this place!

I had the chicken salad with a side of pasta salad and it was amazing. While the menu is somewhat small, the healthy and delicious options in a town where there is no healthy eating dining experience is a breath of fresh air. The store is small and limited supplies but the cafe is a great place to grab a... More

Very much like a whole foods. Love that all is organic. Excellent selection across the board. If you are from outside of Tennessee remember that grocery stores don't sell wine as they do elsewhere. Good produce, poultry, fish, prepared foods. Grass fed beef, pasture raised local eggs, nice cheese selection. A very pleasant surprise.
