If hobbits built a tree house and served sandwiches and soup inside, this would be the Yellow Deli. It is super cozy and artsy. EVERYTHING is wood. Wood floors, wood chairs, wood staircases. And any bits that aren’t cut from a tree, like exposed brick...More

We ate here for lunch. The environment was so neat— Something to see everywhere. The food was awesome too. I recommend the veggie burger, root beer, banana milk and cream cheese pie. My kids also loved their hotdogs. Such a cool place!!

when we travel we look for non chain restaurants and this was a delight. There were 3 generations in our group and everyone found something on the menu they really enjoyed. We loved the "hippy" atmosphere and would definitely go back when visiting Chattanooga.

Such a fun Hippyish vibe. The walls are painted with bright colors and sayings (some Biblical) about the food, the planet etc. Clever decor with bushel baskets as overhead lighting. The food leans toward healthy choices and was really good. We chose the veggie burger...More
