(This restaurant has moved to a new location. Check their Facebook page for updates. )

A new restaurant opened downtown on April 1st and I finally made it there. You are going to love this new place for breakfast and lunch. Take a look now at Mom’s Vintage Kitchen.

The restaurant is located on Bruce Street next to 20/20 Optical.

There will be a special each day. I hear that the chicken and dumplings special is most popular.

The vintage decor is charming and will take you back to another time. There are many different places to sit, both tables and stools.

My favorite sitting area may be the stools.

Christie Champ started as a baker at the Bee’s Knees. Then, she began selling bread and pastries at the Sevierville farmers market last year. When the building space became open, Champ began remodeling in March and Mom’s Vintage Kitchen was open by April 1st.

Mom’s Vintage Kitchen specializes in fresh, home-made ‘in-house,’ gluten free products. They also do not cook with oil. In fact, the restaurant is one of the gluten free stops for the Knoxville and Sevierville areas.

There is a milk-shake bar and ice cream shop there. We love Mayfield’s brand!

Catering is available and they make custom cakes. I took the two pictures below from her menu. I like the ‘doctor’ cake on the left.

As if it couldn’t get any better…they are soon going to add gourmet coffee, espressos, lattes, and cappuccinos!

My friends have already had lunch here and share great reviews. For example, one friend, Tad Wynn, ate there today and gave the food two ‘thumbs up.’ He reports, ” My ham and Swiss sandwich was exceptional – fresh, homemade bread and plenty of ham! They have daily specials, also. I can’t wait to try the beef stew and chicken and dumpling.” Another friend, Sheley Rose, was very impressed with the food this week and wants us to go meet for lunch there next week. She said that she tried several cookies and lemon is her favorite.

We have a new place to go downtown now so don’t hesitate to visit this restaurant for breakfast or dinner. It will be a gluten free option for many. See you out and about in Sevierville. 

 

A Visit to Downtown Sevierville Farmers Market, Labor Day Weekend 2016

Since we were off work on Friday, it was a good time to meet Melinda and Elaine for a trip downtown Sevierville. The day started with coffee, a stroll around the downtown Sevierville Farmers Market for shopping , then back to Courthouse Donuts for lunch. The weather could not have been better. Here is some of what we saw…

First stop at the market found unique jewelry, some pieces using Indian nickels. There are some in the upper, right picture below.

Next, we found the Sevier County Humane Society in the gazebo. They brought four beautiful dogs ready for adoption. So sweet! You could visit the dogs, pet them, and take a walk with them to get to know them. The big, white one is named ‘Pee Wee.’

The event this year will feature local potters. I can’t wait! The Sevierville Commons Arts Council has a new website too. Here is a link to their new website.    http://www.seviervillecommonsartscouncil.org

Last month, a vendor who makes animal figures took a sketch of my dog, little Dolly, from a picture on my cell phone. It was ready for me today! It was only $5 and I was delighted with the figure!

Then, my friends and I made our way back to Courthouse Donuts for lunch. We love the big windows, art, and a view of street and courthouse activity. Plus, the food! We tried the cuban sandwich, chicken salad on pretzel bread, and the spinach salad. Divine! The half and half combo is my favorite way to order too. Doughnuts are good!

A new thing that I noticed was music during lunch in the back of the big room, Dyers Downtown. A talented duo called the Pea Pickin’ Hearts performed a variety of tunes. I have heard of them, but had yet to hear them live. What a nice way to spend the afternoon!

The duo travels around the Southeast, spending 80% of their time on the road. We’ll try to catch them again when they are in the area. Truly talented and created a wonderful atmosphere in the room. I think that I have found a new -favorite- local- group!

Here is a link to their Facebook page for more info, photos, and videos.

All in all, it was a great day at the Farmers Market. Maybe one of my favorites this summer. Find more pictures on the Out and About in Sevierville  Facebook page at this link
