Takeout | Girls' Night In

Food & Drink Takeout

Girls' Night Out, how about Girls' Night In?! Takeout food, reconnecting, and making memories without any of the stress. Grab your girls and go to brunch at your house. Meet up on a friend’s porch for a small get together. Get the gang together for a virtual hang out, and deliver party kits ahead of time. Just because we’re six feet apart doesn’t mean we can’t indulge in Knoxville’s tastiest offerings together.

This isn’t a best-of. This isn’t a must-try. These are the items we’re missing right now, that we want to share with our besties.

Cruze Farm Ice Cream Pints

In need of some locally made Cruze Farm goodness? Order a pint for each friend in attendance and be the belle of your own ball. Or go ahead and upgrade to the Party Bucket size (5 quarts of your favorite ice cream!). You can order online for downtown curbside pickup, or give them a call at (865) 333-1265.

Cafe 4's Strawberry Field Salad

The freshest explosion of summer in every bite, this salad from Cafe 4 will instantly transport you to Market Square in May -- feel good weather, cute sunglasses, and even cuter dogs to look at. Luckily, their menu offers enough variety that everyone’s palette will be satisfied. Order food for everyone here. Maybe a Mimosa kit too?

Late Night Tacos from CJ Tacos

Set up a Rom-Com Viewing Party on Saturday night featuring a spread of potato, Korean BBQ, buffalo chicken, and steak supreme tacos from CJ's Tacos!

Oh Knoxville, you spoil us.

Bayou Shrimp Benny's from Ruby Sunshine

All of the ladies who brunch are all cordially invited to keep living your best life no matter where you are, thanks to Ruby Sunshine.
