THE HISTORIC WEST SIDE is where many of Cookeville’s iconic businesses reside. Visit this distinctive part of town to see some of the city’s oldest streets and some small-town charm unlike anything else.


A trip to the West Side wouldn’t be complete without some shopping. Luxe Boutique and Broadway Boutique Mall offers the latest trends and gifts including candles, home décor, fragrant oils, jewelry, purses, collectibles, and more. Need a good tee? Check out Tennessee Shirt Company for local designs.

Next, check out a shop of a more specific interest because we have plenty of them! For outdoor enthusiasts, Upper Cumberland Outdoor Exchange and Cumberland Mountain Outdoor Sports have everything you could possibly need for your adventures. For exercise apparel, Side Stitch is the place to go. Looking for something for the house? Check out Tatum Hill Interiors for the latest trending items.



Start off the day with lunch at one of several great locations, including the Back Room Bistro, Blue Rooster Canteen, and Whitt’s Barbecue. Spend some time exploring then prepare yourself for an exquisite dinner at Crawdaddy’s West Side Grill, Mauricio’s Italian Restaurant, Seven Senses Food & Cheer or Taiko Noodles & Sushi Bar. After dinner, don’t forget to grab a drink at Father Tom’s Pub, Red Silo Brewing Company or Hix Farm Brewery.  The absolute best places are Ralph’s Donut Shop, voted #1 in the state, and Cream City Ice Cream, both of which are registered historical sites.


More Things to Do

If none of the incredible shopping or dining opportunities peak your interest, maybe one of these places will. Kids will enjoy a game of Cyber Tag. Several specialty shops are spread throughout the West Side, as well as some salons and spas.
