If you’re craving good food and good people, there’s no better restaurant to stop in Townsend than Apple Valley Cafe Express.

At lunch, experience Townsend’s Best Burgers, Milkshakes, Salads & More! 

Relax & Enjoy

For breakfast lovers, start your day with our fresh, locally-roasted coffee and a delicious double stack of pancakes, loaded with your favorite toppings from our Pancake Toppings Bar! Or try the “Breakfast of Champions” with Scrambled Eggs and a Fried Apple Pie! Then, cool off in the afternoon on our Beer Garden patio with a Calfkiller draft beer, a vintage Coke, or one of our exclusive premium ice cream cones and sundaes.

Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

Whatever your pleasure, don’t forget to take home some of our World Famous Fried Apple Pies. We sell 50,000 of these little gems every year. Each Pie is topped off with our special blend of cinnamon and sugar that compliments the right touch of tart apple sweetness! Or have one of our famous fried pies hand spun into our cinnamon ice cream in our Fried Apple Pie Milkshake!
