Pinewood Store & Kitchen is our farm-to-table diner just across the street from our farm in a restored 1920s gas station in the heart of downtown Pinewood, TN. The country kitchen, which is owned and operated by television chef, restaurateur, and author Mee McCormick, offers an innovative new approach to creating healthy, country cooking.
In addition to traditional, down home fare, the farm-to-table restaurant also offers a number of gluten-free, vegan and dairy-free items for customers with food allergies and sensitivities to enjoy. From the grass-fed beef burgers and woodfired pizzas to the farm fresh salads and falafel wraps, Pinewood Store & Kitchen offers healthy alternatives for every taste.
Mee’s inspiration and passion for cooking for wellness stems from her childhood as a “food stamps and fishsticks” kinda girl growing up in a poverty-stricken town in Northern Pennsylvania. Growing up with a digestive disease and a number of food allergies, Mee began cooking for wellness out of sheer survival.
With the help of the entire family, including her husband Lee, her sister Nicole, and her two daughters, Mee hopes to create an oasis in the middle of a food desert with meals that are scrumptious, familiar and healthy to provide nourishment and wellness to the entire community.
The meals at the Pinewood Store & Kitchen are seasonal, based on what’s coming out of the garden that time of year. The kitchen’s ingredients — including the fruits, vegetables, grass-fed meats, and even the wild mushrooms and sweet Tennessee honey — are all sourced from right across the street on our 10-acre farm.
We’re always entertaining at the cafe with live music, open mic nights, Sunday brunches and good old fashioned camaraderie. Visit www.pinewoodstoreandkitchen.com to see what’s on the menu.
Pinewood Store & Kitchen is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner on Tuesday-Sunday. We’re located at 4951 Hwy 48 North Nunnelly, Tennessee.
