We visited this restaurant on a Saturday for lunch. We were able to make advance reservations, but it didn't look like they were really needed. We sat on the patio and there was ample shade with large patio umbrellas. Our waitstaff was very friendly and really attentive. Our food came out quickly and it was oh, so delicious!! Our family...

My son and I stopped here after visiting Rock City. It is a quaint cafe with friendly service. I had a hamburger that was delicious and my son had grilled cheese. It's located in a very pretty neighborhood on Lookout Mountain.

This restaurant on top of Lookout Mountain is reached by a dramatic winding road with great vistas (but had to keep my eyes on the road!) The restaurant itself is in the town of Lookout Mountain, a pleasant, well-to-do town, but away from the cliffsides. The restaurant is said to be a coverted grocery store, if so, it was an... More

The service and the food..not to mention the location are great! The Fried Green Tomatoes were great and they brought us a surprise cornbread bowl to the table. Best I have ever had...and I'm southern-so I've had plenty. Our staff was great and we were treated like royality.

Lookout Mountain is beautiful. This little cafe is a locals spot. Service is great. Staff are polite and attentive. Food was very good. We sat outside on the patio. They had heat lamps. It is quaint and has good food with daily specials. If in the area stop in for a snack, app or a meal.

We passed by on our trip back from Lula lake and gave the cafe on the corner a try since it looked so cozy from outside. What a nice experience. Staff was extremely friendly, service was quick and food was super delicious. We had the flatbread as entree and the Cafe Mac and Fried tomato sandwich main course. Highly recommended.... More
