The Creek was originally a class project at Carson-Newman University, and the idea blossomed into a real-life venture that has become the best café in Jefferson City. The sandwiches and ice cream are fantastic, and the place has a comfortable atmosphere that is perfect for...More

We took a coffee/tea break at The Creek Cafe. Located in the heart of Jefferson City, it has reasonable prices (not like Starbucks) and a relaxed, quiet atmosphere in which to enjoy your drink and carry on a conversation. We will return.

This little place knocks it out of the park!!! Had the chicken salad sandwich and white bean chili. I travel and eat out over 200 days a year from coast to coast and I promise you this place is nothing short of fantastic!!!

I took my wife here for a celebratory drink after closing a land deal. She ordered a fancy coffee, while I ordered tea. It was very good and we will return.

The Creek is a fun place to eat. The food is good. Don't go if you are in a hurry. Each person's order is fixed as they order it and it takes awhile.

Love the ice cream! Girls were very nice behind the counter. Sandwich and soup were fantastic! Hopefully more businesses spring up in downtown Jeff City like this one.

The Creek embodies everything you want in a small town non-chain restaurant. Food is fantastic (including ice cream for dessert if you like), service is friendly, and the place is charming. My daughter got a veggie wrap and I got a club sandwich. Dee-lish!
