The Farmer's Daughter opened in the fall of 2013 in a previously abandoned gas-station next to the Tremont Tavern (which serves up some of the best burgers in town). It's family run, the food is sourced from local farms, and the art comes from local artists.
It is a farm-to-table cafe in the bungalow-strewn hills of North Chattanooga, featuring a simple, yet eloquent breakfast and lunch menu. Ann Keener, the restaurant's owner and chef, sources the most local ingredients she can find. They've also partnered with Copacetic Coffee, a coffee bar run by one of the best roasters in the Southeast, Velo Coffee.
The sausage-egg biscuit is a classic option. So too are the Grits and Greens. But the A La Carte menu is where you can really get carried away with delicious pairings. Fried eggs, hashbrowns, toast, sausage, and the best grits in town. The drip coffee with thick cream from Sequatchie Cove Farm is arguably the best in the city, and the restaurant itself is beautiful and open.
Sit outside in their expansive outdoor patio and listen to live fiddle and banjo folk music. Watch children playing in the pebble rock garden. Have conversations with the very friendly waitstaff. And enjoy one of the best breakfast experiences you can have in Chattanooga.
