The green apple salad is the most wonderful salad I’ve ever experienced. My husband loved the Rueben. My 12 year old ate all of her Caesar salad (she I the pickiest person on the planet), and said it was good… But….. please know it was the green apple salad that caused me to wore this review. All the stars for this establishment. Well done.

I work in the downtown area. I walk from my office, a couple of blocks away, to have a salad and quiche from the Mustard seed. They have amazing salads and even more amazing quiches. Their Strawberry poppyseed dressing is so good, I could drink it with a straw! Long story shorter: I make it a point to eat here at least once a month. It can get very busy around lunchtime, so I order to go a lot as well. I promise, if you have the time (nd patience) to wait for the food, you will not be disappointed.

English toffee latte perfectly blended, not overly sweet. We ordered Julie’s Club, chicken salad scoop (you can a make another sandwich out of it!) cranberry chicken quiche (you’ve got to get this as side order!) tomato basil (will come back just for this soup!), Reuben (sauerkraut not too tangy, just right!), Micah’s, broccoli cheddar soup. 6 ****** stars ****** for me!

Anytime we go near KIngsport in our travels we will stop here...this is a quaint local restaurant with fabulous food and exceptional staff...It is in downtown Kingsport but is well worth the trip...Our server, Nancy, was wonderful, and the food, well all I can say is that I wish I was there as I type this...it is that good...don't forget to save room for the Caramel cake, which is now my favorite dessert of all time...

Food was terrific! My chicken salad was delicious, wife’s Reuben was one of the best we’ve had (corn beef was very lean) and the soups were top notch. The restaurant was busy but moved quick and service was friendly. I wish my town had a restaurant like this!

My husband and I visited this restaurant in February 2022 and we loved it! It's quaint, decorated adorably, has fabulous food and a great staff. PLUS, the prices are reasonable. What more could you want in a place to eat?!? Definitely put this on your places to visit.

Terrible. Went in large group for lunch meeting- started at 10:30am so we could beat the lunchtime rush. After charging us 32% gratuity they kicked us immediately. Some of us were still paying!!! apparently after 15 people eating and drinking at their establishment from 10:30-12:30 they had our money and now we were of no use to them. They needed the table and were very rude about it. We said we were just rounding off our meeting and needed a few minutes. Then the owner scoffed at us and said she would call and report our group to the organization we represent. Very nasty and unprofessional. Charged us extra for our audacity to bring them so much business then chucked us into the street. 🤡🤣 What a shame. That was our first meeting and we are growing very quickly so I’m so pleased to know early on that we should choose a different small Kingsport business to support. So many lovely places to eat in this town with much more pleasant people. 🤗🤗💖 Key take-away....don’t go here in large groups as they don’t want the business. ..be prepared to eat, pay & run. Not suitable for leisurely lunch. You’re just a number and your repeat business is not important. 🤗 Table charmers.

We had five people sitting outdoors, and all the food was delicious. All of us loved the Kitchen Sink salad and the Tomato Pie the best. Debbie, the owner, served us with a big smile and plenty of Southern hospitality. Highly recommended!

Saw the Tripadvisor reviews and wanted a good place for lunch in Kingsport. The Mustard Seed was great. Very fast service and a large selection of salads, sandwiches, quiches and soup. Lots of combo options. I selected the chicken and cranberry quiche and the kitchen sink salad. I had two generous portions of each. My only quibble is that quiche to my mind is primarily eggs and cream/milk. My chicken quiche was more like a chicken pie. It was tasty, but not really quiche. The kitchen sink salad was excellent with a wide variety of items. Plus a little bonus muffin.

This is by far the best restaurant in the entire city. The food is fresh and delicious. I bring all guests here that come to visit me. Order the Pick 3 and choose Julias club for the sandwich, Kitchen Sink for the salad and the chicken and cranberry quiche for the side dish. You'll think you're in heaven. Friends often order more for later. Delicious. Tastes you won't find elsewhere.

My husband and I have been here several times. It is awesome! The food and coffee are great, the service is great, and the ambience is great. We have had the soup of the day, chicken quiche with cranberries, chicken salad sandwich, salad with berries, and other things, all of them delicious. A great experience and we will definitely be returning.

Highest quality ingredients. We enjoyed the Caesar and spring salads, the spinach quiche, the potato soup, and three kinds of sandwiches. All fresh and good sized portions. The ladies working there were friendly and helpful. A perfect lunch stop for our family.
