Found this on trip advisor, looking for something we hadn't tried. It was far above expectations and a very simply delicious meal. 6 items are gluten free on today's board, many of them are veggies too. They're only open 11 AM til 2 PM Monday...More

Amazing spinach salad. Love the blackberries and lemon poppyseed dressing. Yum! I go there just for the salad, everything else is a bonus. Order with the grilled chicken and banana pudding for a knock out meal.

Great fresh food - a welcome relief to the chain restaurants so prevalent in Knoxville. Food quality excellent and much fancier than the place. Can eat outside on warm days which is a big plus. Go here - you will not regret it!

I like the steak, mashed potatoes, and either the asparagus or the spinach with berries salad. Yum, yum, yum! And they offer a small discount to employees of the nearby community college. NOTE: Open only for lunch and closed on Saturday and Sunday!

Brown bag is a little pricey for my budget but so yummy! Great food to get for groups; office catering; events.

My work had The Brown Bag cater a luncheon for us. The food was very tasty, my favorite was the corn pudding which was a little on the spicy side, but that's the way I like it.

Always a healthy option. Their grilled chicken with asparagus and spinach salad is my favorite. They also have amazing Cole slaw The food is always fresh and comes out quickly. They also have some dog friendly outdoor seating which is a plus as well. Great...More

Be forewarned they are only opened a few hours a day, so check the time. Great place to eat with a lot of healthy options. Great fresh food with great service. Does get very busy around lunchtime.
