When Simon or his staff say Welcome, they mean it. When people say their food and prices are good and reasonable, it's true. When it is said that Kali's has a great following for breakfast and lunch, it's true-better come early. When Simon or his staff say Thank You for eating there and have a Wonderful Day, they mean it.... More

The food is very good and the prices are excellent. We have always had good luck at Kali's and would recommend it to anyone. Sometimes you will have to wait for a seat but the Breakfast is well worth it.

Quick service, food is tasty and priced right. Open breakfast and lunch per the sign. The place was packed with diners but the staff cleared tables quickly. Nothing fancy but one of the best Ruben sandwiches I've had in Crossville.

Due to a car problem we were stranded here for a day. What a great town to be stranded in. We found a cabin and Cumberland Parl and needed a breakfast. An employee at the park recommended Kali's. We had a great breakfast and a low price. Local place in a little strip mall. Waitress was great! We try to... More

Stopped at this restaurant based solely on the good reviews posted on Trip Advisor. Was not disappointed! Great breakfast for the money, quick and friendly service, very clean (even the bathrooms!) Simple decor with early 1900's photos of town on walls. If looking for great food with no wait and no frills, this is it!

We stopped in for breakfast after fasting for a doctor appointment. All we wanted to do was get something to eat. This was our first visit and didn't expect much as it looks like a bit of a dive, in a strip mall, from the outside. Much to our surprise, it's much bigger, on the inside, and very clean. Service...

Friendly staff and good atmosphere. I've had breakfast here a few times - it's nothing to write home about but it will fill you up for a good price. Coffee, omelet, toast, and grits cost me about $9.

Had a quick solo breakfast here, not a ton of atmosphere inside but very comfortable, service was lightning-quick, very good omelet and toast, can't beat the price. Definitely a local favorite and easy to see why, this place understands that good food and great service at a reasonable price will make you successful even in a small market with a... More
