We were guests of dear friends last Sunday and looked forward to enjoying a great brunch. I ordered the eggs with grit cakes and the Benton Bacon and Tomato Confit. The eggs were heavily salted and the grit cakes were completely dry and bland and no salt on them. Let me tell you the salt did not even out between... More

This is a great little Cafe nestled in the mountains on Lookout Mountain, TN. Outside setting was awesome. Fall foliage was beautiful. Food was delicious and reasonable for lunch.Homemade chips were GREAT. Will be back for sure.

We were recommended this restaurant when we were staying locally, and were drawn in by the outside area with firepit. We found all of the staff extremely welcoming and friendly, and it was great to sample the recommended beers. The burger was great, as was the salmon, and the corn bread was a delicious way to start the meal. Definitely... More

Our experience at Cafe on the Corner was mixed. My husband did not enjoy his meal of meatloaf at all, however the pasta I ordered was quite good. The restaurant's specialty cornbread made a delicious appetizer. The service was friendly, but quite slow. The restaurant was very clean and well-decorated providing a comfortable, quiet ambience.

The atmosphere and appetizers were excellent, though I felt my entree was just average. The server was a sweet but likely inexperienced young person. The biggest fault was that the dish that actually drew us there, the candied pecan and strawberry salad was served without any pecans that we found. Our server was eager to have the situation corrected but... More

Simply drove up on this gem. The blackened mahi mahi was more than enough and delicious. Sarah was exceptional. She recommended a yeehaw blueberry sour that was great.

My friends chose this place mainly for the extensive biscuit and fried chicken menu. Unfortunately i could not have fried foods but the girl at the counter recommended the iron goat biscuit which was a delicious combination of goat cheese, spinach, egg and ham in biscuit. My husband opted for gravy over biscuit which also turned out yummy. We were... More

We have become TripAdvisor addicts, and places like this are exactly the reason. Never would have thought to come here otherwise, and it was wonderful. We were dining with our three young kids and it was a perfect "compromise" restaurant -- terrific, "classy" food for us parents, but still genuinely accommodating for our kids. Everything was awesome, including all of... More

So we are on top of Lookout Mountain near Chattanooga, Tennessee. We are between tourist attractions Rock City and Ruby Falls, and hungry. Cafe on the Corner caught our eye with its delightful location, cozy deck and contemporary minimalist decor. The menu was imaginative. The quality and taste surpassed all expectations for a southern mountaintop cafe. Flounder, ok, but FRESH... More

The Inn that we stayed at in the area recommended Café Seven. I am so glad that we chose it too, our food was delicious. I ordered the Rib eye steak and he ordered the Meatloaf sandwich. We shared a few bites of each and really loved all of the food. The prices were not bad at all, we ate... More
