     Pete's Coffee Shop is perfect for a downtown location.  Knoxville and it's downtown may not be a big city downtown, but Pete's captures the big city experience with below market prices for good food.  A few years back, Pete's was located in a very much crampted location that has now been destroyed.  That location had a bar on one side and booths down the other side with an aisle in between.  At lunch, that aisle was always a standing line waiting for the next table.  Now with the location, the atmosphere has changed but that line in the aisle is still there.  The line, can move quickly, but if you are the guy or gal sitting at the table along the aisle, you have no eating privacy.  Now if you get my drift, to me that's the big city feel.  The food here is generally very good, and yes, that is Pete at the grill when you enter the door.  The employees know that they are there for a reason, the dining atmosphere is fast paced, greasy spoon style, however, you will not find better prices for the food you get at Pete's.  Out of town guests, please avoid peak lunch hours but visit before 12 Noon or after 1:00pm for your best experience.  The food is good, the service is fast paced and energetic, the atmosphere offers no privacy.

     In perspective, this website recommends this restaurant for dining purposes, not for a meeting, not for a date, but for honest food, honest prices and the in and out dining experience!
