OliBeaIf breakfast is indeed the most important meal of the day, then OliBea is surely the most significant restaurant in Knoxville’s Old City. Specializing in morning meals, the eatery offers the expected egg dishes, but with special attention paid to farm-to-table ingredients and all sorts of creative culinary touches. A twist on a brunch classic, the Tennessee Benedict features local ham and hollandaise sauce spiced up with chilies from Rushy Springs Farm, outside Knoxville. Other favorites include the breakfast tacos with chorizo, egg, and potatoes, and the carnita tostada, which comes stuffed with confit pork shoulder, frijoles, queso fresco, eggs, and salsa.
