Chattanooga TN: Purple Daisy Picnic Cafe

Based on the on-line comments, I wasn't sure what the physical location of the Purple Daisy would be like: rough and ready or cute? The road from the highway furthered my confusion; the neighborhood wasn't bad but clearly old industrial. The Purple Daisy's neighborhood, a few miles from the highway, is actually next to the inclined railway and a brighly-renovated tourist district. It's also conveniently near the International Towing and Recovery Hall of Fame and Museum (you can't make up this stuff, folks). The interior of the Purple Daisy is decorated in Southern wacky style.

The food was great. The BBQ pork sandwich was juicy and tender. The sauce is slightly thin but not a North Carolina style vinegar sauce, either. The corn was just right, not overcooked. I tried the spicy cole slaw which was excellent. Don't be fooled by the mayonnaise---this slaw is plenty hot and leaves a long, deep afterburn. The combination of creamy cole slaw and pepper sauce is a great idea.
