Imagine dining along the Tellico River, enjoying homemade soup, a specialty sandwich and freshly brewed gourmet coffee!

Lunch on the Tellico River

The Tellico Kats menu of custom prepared specialty sandwiches features their quality deli meats and cheeses, but Kats goes way beyond the menu. Daily specials highlight their true creativity, with seasonal vegetables and fruits inspiring additional sandwich offerings, homemade soups and exotic salads, plus “chef’s whim” selections, like quiche or chili. The Turkey Pot Pie soup is a favorite, but Spinach Wild Rice soup is a close runner-up. Sourcing many ingredients from local farm markets, Kellye and Tomye create extraordinary salads, combining delicious fresh ingredients you’d never think of mixing yourself, often with their homemade dressings. Even the “sides” are unique, like oriental slaw, bean salads, salsas, and fruit concoctions. But save room for the daily homemade dessert special… it might be Amaretto Sour Cream Cake, Peppermint Cream Cheese Brownies, or a huge slice of Strawberry Pretzel Cream Pie. Or grab a homemade snack pack to go, like Tellico Kat’s own trail mix or granola bars, chocolate clusters, fudge, or a homemade cookie treat. If Tellico Kats is open, Tomye and Kellye are there, so consistency and quality are assured.

Tellico Kats is more than a delicatessen, a restaurant, a caterer, and a general store. It’s a place to relax, make new friends, and learn about the area. Plan a visit to Tellico Plains today!
