From West Town to West End
Frulatti Café makes the move from West Town Mall to Farragut


A popular fixture at West Town Mall is making the move to Farragut, opening a restaurant at the former TCBY spot in West End.

Frulatti Café was located in the mall almost 10 years, owner Grace Gault said, but she wanted to move into a spot that would allow her more time with customers.

“I want to get to know people and talk to them,” Gault said.

Gault said she expected Frulatti, 129 West End Ave., to open by the end of the month.

Customers at the mall would get their smoothies or salads and leave, she said. But at West End, she can visit and recognize frequent customers.

“You can see nature and people here, kids walking by. It’s open but so quiet. It’s relaxing, not like the mall,” Gault said.

Frulatti is famous for its signature drink, a real fruit smoothie made without dairy.


“It’s just amazing. And it makes a good meal, too,” Gault said.

She cuts up fresh fruit for the smoothies each morning, and the options for smoothies are limitless.

Frulatti also serves coffee, hot tea — including herbal and fruit teas — and old fashioned lemonade “where you squeeze a real lemon,” Gault said.

“And it can be flavored with other fruits. People love it and the prices on all of it are good too,” she added.

Frulatti isn’t just a drink shop. The restaurant will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and serves sandwiches, panini, hand-tossed salads and soups.

“You can put anything on the salads,” Gault said.

Gault said Frulatti’s chicken salad and tuna salad (on sandwiches or in salads) are “really famous,” and the bread Frulatti uses has no preservatives.

“That bread is really good,” she said.

The restaurant will serve one to two soups a day, in addition to offering half portions of its popular meal items and value meals.

“I’m really proud of my products. Every day, I’ve done this for almost 10 years,” Gault said.

“It’s what I love,” she added.

Hours at Frulatti Café are likely to be 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Fridays and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays.
