The front desk of our hotel suggested we stop here and grab a sandwich and snacks before we head to Cades Cove. It's a quaint little general store.

Some of the stuff they carry here is like stepping back in time. Grab a sandwich, or chat with the staff. We will make this a stop on every trip to Gatlinburg.

Found this place by accident. Was going to someplace else for lunch but they were only open for dinner. I had an amazing fried green tomato BLT. Fun store to walk around. Lots of yesteryear things that brought back fond memories.
