White Tiger Gourmet makes its home in the 100-plus year old structure on Hiawassee Avenue in the Historic Boulevard District.
Built in 1905, the space originally housed a grocery store called "Davis House" and served the needs of the then mill neighborhood. This historic building has a cozy, informal atmosphere...making it a unique space to dine and view the work of local artists.
White Tiger is the former home of Thrasher's Grocery, a place well known in the 70's and beyond for its famous biscuits.
