Sunspot is located on the Strip in the middle of the University of Tennessee campus. We have won several awards for best lunch, best brunch, and best vegetarian (although we do serve non-vegetarians as well). We strive to use as many local and organic ingredients as possible. There is a downstairs patio and a rooftop deck. We have doggie bowls for water, offer doggie treats, and are working on starting a weekly Yappy Hour. Visit Website

    Yummy Brunch!

    I ate here on a Saturday around noon and had the avocado toast and soup! the food was really good, and my little guy enjoyed the patio! It is definitely dog friendly. There were five dogs out on the patio!

    Definitely Fido Friendly

    Large patio is uncovered, but they do have umbrellas for shade and a few dishes of water spread around for dogs. Staff was very friendly with our puppy. Food was great! Lots of interesting options. Parking is a little tricky since you pull into the gas station next door and park against the building. Very convenient to UT. We’ve been twice and will be back.

    Worth the Drive

    Not located downtown but worth the drive! As a vegetarian married to Mr. Meat and Potatos, we were both happy with our meal! We were greeted with a water bowl for our pup and she loved the staff! Great find!!
