“Now in it’s sixth year of business Elvira’s Cafe has become the community’s favorite place to catch up and chow down. With an excellent team in the kitchen and some of the friendliest waitresses in Tennessee, it is easy to see why Elvira’s home away from home has become the place to be for home made food in a warm and inviting environment. You will be impressed. They use local ingredients and farm fresh food makes all the difference.”

“Whole Earth Grocery is both a grocery store and a whole foods cafe. The store carries many health and specialty food items, herbs, organic and special diet items. The store is only open 10am-5pm and the café 11am-3pm Monday-Saturday, so plan ahead to enjoy! ”

“This place is owned by an awesome Christian gentleman who loves to make great food and give great service. It literally is a little shed restaurant so do not expect something extravagant. A low key, quick eatery with the largest pancakes I have ever seen. Definitely worth a try in Pigeon Forge. ”

“Why go to the same franchise shops you have at home when you can have coffee and ice cream treats at this local landmark. When in the Village make sure to make your way to Crescent and the Village Cafe and Creamery where you can sit outside and enjoy the quaint old world atmosphere while treating yourself to delicious ice cream, milkshakes, coffee drinks, slushies, smoothies, and more.”
