While all of our 2 and 3 bedroom condo units in Gatlinburg feature a full kitchen for easy meal preparation, sometimes you just want to head out in the morning to sample a delicious Southern breakfast! The great news is that Summit Manor is within easy walking distance of several restaurants that serve up some of the best breakfast meals in the Smokies! Here are 3 awesome restaurants within walking distance of our hotel where you can enjoy a delicious breakfast in Gatlinburg:
1. Crockett’s Breakfast Camp
Enjoy the best home-cooked meal in the Smokies at Crockett’s Breakfast Camp, a legendary Gatlinburg restaurant that dates all the way back to 1875! The restaurant is named after David “Crockett” Maples, who was an American hero who served as a private and corporal in the 9th Tennessee Cavalry during the mid-1860s. After completing his military service, Crockett and his wife began serving hungry travelers from a small supply store at the base of Mount LeConte. The quality of the food and service quickly became famous in the Smokies, and now you can sample some of their breakfast dishes, such as Old Fashioned Cinnamon Candied Apple Waffles, Big Tennessee French Toast and Hungry Hunters Huntcamp Skillets! While at the restaurant, be sure to stop by the wooden statue of David “Crockett” Maples out front to see the man who made his mark in the Smoky Mountains more than 150 years ago!
2. Bennett’s Pit Bar-B-Que
One of the last places you might expect to find an amazing breakfast is at a barbeque joint, but Bennett’s Pit Bar-B-Que has the best all-you-can-eat breakfast bar in the Smokies! The buffet includes just about every type of breakfast food imaginable, including a Belgian waffle bar, eggs, sausage, bacon, French Toast, home fries, grits and much more! Bennett’s Pit Bar-B-Que also offers a traditional breakfast menu where you can order omelets, pancakes and country biscuits with gravy. The restaurant first opened its doors in Pigeon Forge in 1991 and has grown over the years to multiple brands and locations, including the Gatlinburg location just steps from Summit Manor!
3. Flapjack’s Pancake Cabin
If you have the taste of pancakes in your mind, there is no better place to head than to Flapjack’s Pancake Cabin for breakfast in Gatlinburg! This popular small Southern chain opened up their first restaurant back in 2001 and has expanded to 7 locations after serving more than 5 million guests! Come find out for yourself what the fuss is all about by sampling all types of mouth-watering pancakes, including Sticky Bun Pancakes, Reese’s Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Pancakes and Grandma’s Peanut Butter and Banana Pancakes!
