The Sunspot has to be one of my all time favorite places to eat. It was a great lunch hangout while in college and now a great date night place with my husband. He's a carnivore...


I have visited Sunspot several times recently because my coworkers and friends like it there. I love the food and the bartenders can make a decent mixed drink...(unlike many bars...

Forget it! 12/11/2009

Too bad they had a 74 health Inspection score with a bad review on their sanitization! more

A place for vegetarians and carnivores to come together 11/2/2005

The Sunspot has to be one of my all time favorite places to eat. It was a great lunch hangout while in college and now a great date night place with my husband. He's a carnivore, I'm a veggie. This is one of the few places we can go together and both be happy. The food has a very distinct taste and flavor and it always fresh. The hummus is amazing and a must have for every table. A few years ago they expanded and made the bar area larger to add additional seating. A plus in my book because the wait can sometimes be a bit long on the weekends. more

Great ambience and food! 8/29/2005

Sunspot is a favorite of mine! It has both a bar area and a casual dining area, so you get the best of both worlds. Service has always been impeccable, though sometimes there is a bit of a wait. As for the food, if you like an eclectic mix of Mediterranean, Jamaican, and Tex-Mex, you'll love it. There are plenty of vegetarian and carnivorous options on the menu that is flavorful and unique. Enjoy! more

not just vegetarian... 8/16/2005

Great place - lots of character and unique food for Knoxville - find it rght on the strip. A supporter of non-smoking atmosphere as well as a strong selection of vegetarian and vegan foods. A hard to come by cuisine in Eastern TN. Good for groups of up to 6 at a table but plan ahead for UT games since the strip gets packed and parking is a premium. more

One of the Best of the Cumberland Strip 8/16/2005

Sunspot is located on Cumberland Ave within walking distance to the University of Tennessee. Restaurants have come and gone here, but the Sunspot has endured. It is difficult to explain the menu - I think it is a bit eclectic. The specials are always flavorful and creative. I have had an occasional meal here that was over-spiced, but I like the culinary risk taking. I believe they still have a full bar. Good vegetarian selections, friendly atmosphere. I'm glad they are still around. more

For vegetarians and meat-eaters to enjoy together 8/15/2005

Sunspot is a favorite of mine. I regularly take vegetarian friends who are visiting from out-of-town, as it's a rare locally-owned restaurant that offers great quality, atmosphere, and value. The menu has tremendous range, including great salads, tofu sandwiches, vegetable pastas, seafood, a great burger, chicken sandwich, blackened crab quesadilla, and on and on. The service is friendly, the atmosphere is very unique, and It's also just a short walk from the UT campus. more
