A coal miner's - I mean Farmer's Daughter.

Obviously, all this local, Southern food has me listening to Loretta on repeat.

She is really a sassy belle, isn't she?

"You're the reason our kids are ugly, little darlin'..."

I can always find a kindred spirit in a strong, Southern woman.

"We were poor, but we had love..."

Well, food is love, so Butcher Holler must have tasted delicious.

So did these bites.

The Farmer's Daughter

Nestled in a delightful little converted gas station on Hixon Pike sits this farm-to-table gem.

Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes

Riverview Farm cornmeal and local blueberry pancakes served with Sequatchie Cove Farm sausage and vanilla syrup

When you know what farm your food came from, that is creating a real connection with what you are putting in your body.

A colorful salad made with quinoa, french lentils, roasted roots or pumpkin, marinated veggies, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, shaved parmesan, and lemon-miso dressing

Mike's Potatoes

Hashbrowns served with house-made apple sauce, sour cream, fried Main Street city ham, and local scrambled eggs

"and I love that country ham."

Southern Star

Simple, delicious Southern food sitting shining on Broad Street. This is a place where I suggest you order the daily specials. They are treats.

Quiche of the Day - Spinach and Mushroom 

Yes, I know quiche is really bad for you, but frankly, life is just too short not to.

Each table is gifted with these little bites of fried cornbread. Delightful.

Chattanooga, you are so delicious.

"...country folks all know where it's at... i'll show you around if you'll show me a weddin' band.."

Loretta really knows.

"...you ain't woman enough to take my man." (Hehe)
