Outdoor athletes have many great options for food and drinks in and around Knoxville. The Bearden Beer Market hosts weekly social runs that depart and finish at the bar, located in Bearden near Sequoyah Hills.
The "Flying Pints" runners meet on Mondays and Thursdays at 6:30 p.m., and usually number between 50 to 100. Located right next to River Sports on 2920 Sutherland Avenue, Blue Mason Coffee is a place where people gather to enjoy made-from-scratch pastries and on-point direct trade coffee.
The Copper Cellar has been a favorite for UT students and Knoxville residents for about forty years now. Their close proximity to campus, their two-restaurants-in-one-cellar status, and their cozy atmosphere are just some of the things that make it such a great eatery. Another thing is obviously the food itself; they offer Choice and Prime beef, fresh fish and seafood, and delicious brunch options.
Tellico Grains Bakery is an artisan bakery that offers warm, fresh, delicious bread on a daily basis (excluding Sunday and Monday). Made from scratch with simple, natural, and preservative-free ingredients and baked to perfection in their wood-fired brick oven, these breads really do have a unique, Old World feel (and taste).
