During our shutdown, the Tellicafe used this time to not just clean and sanitize our facilities, but also renovate the interior of the restaurant. As mentioned above, we are still offering curbside pick-up for to-go orders upon request, and we will now begin serving dine-in patrons as well. We have always taken sanitization and cleanliness very serious. We continue to be vigilant sanitizing menus, food prep areas, counters, bathrooms and all other facilities regularly. Check back here for updated information as well as our and our . For questions, or to place an order, contact us at .

During this crisis, The Tellicafe continues to serve the great people of this community. We pray for all in these trying times and stay committed to the health and safety of everyone.

  • Had lunch here again today. As always the atmosphere, food and service was outstanding. We drive up from Cleveland,TN a couple times a month. Have never been disappointed. If you are in or near Tellico Plains you must stop in and enjoy the delicious food.

  • Stopped here for lunch after 100 miles on the motorcycle. Had the pork stuffed baked potato and cheese potato soup. Both were great. Super friendly staff and the price is right. Highly recommend if you are in the area. They have motorcycle parking right up front.
