“Cade's Cove side trip”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

Small cafe serving sandwiches on homemade bread and nice desserts. Nice easy place to detour from the Cade's cove area of the park. I thought it was a bit overpriced.

“Excellent food & service”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

We went to the Smokies for a week and ate here three times while we were there. The food was great and the service was very good as well. You always felt right at home. Everything was top quality with good prices. What a selection of pies, wow.

“Quiet Friendly Atmosphere - Good Food”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

The wait staff was friendly and helpful. Food was adequate and reasonably priced. We were there before the official start of the vacation season and found the restaurant to be relaxing, which might not be the case later.

“Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

We stopped in for lunch while making the return trip from the Cades Cove area. Service was friendly, food was tasty and affordable. My only regret is I had no room for dessert.

“Great Food and Great Service”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

We eat here at least once every time we visit the Smokies. The food is great and we had a great server. We talked to the owner and let her know how much we enjoyed it. They have a very reasonably priced special everyday. All the portions are large. Can't wait until our next Smokies trip so I can try something different.
