Food scene

A great place to dine for a four course fondue meal, but also a great dessert spot if you just have a sweet tooth! We often go for just the chocolate fondue!

As a breakfast option, this is the place to be! Go early! The later you go, the longer the wait! People line up outside to get a taste of their pancakes. Every kind of pancake you can imagine, but my favorite are the buckwheat! They only take cash there, but they have an ATM inside the restaurant.

We recently visited Anakeesta and loved it! You ride a chair lift to the top of a mountain where you'll find neat shopping, restaurants, food trucks, a mountain roller coaster, zip lining, a treehouse, a tree canopy bridge and a beautiful flower garden. The views of Gatlinburg from Anakeesta are amazing, but if heights aren't your thing, you might want to check it out before purchasing your tickets!
