Stopped here for lunch while exploring down town Ellijay. We really enjoyed the soup and sandwiches but the main star of our dining experience was a Pecan-Caramel Brownie. This was the best dessert we ate in that area while visiting.

Very disappointed in the quality of the food. My husband and granddaughter both got sick. My tuna salad is not worth mentioning. I left half a sandwich. Will not return. Service was friendly and fast.

The food is always good whenever I go. Highly recommend the mushroom soup, if they have it! If not, then you can never go wrong with the tomato basil! They are known for their chicken salad, which I will admit is great but I love the Cantaberry Club on sourdough. Service can be slow and some of the servers aren't... More

Small cafe with big taste, we had the tomato basil and chicken and wild rice soup and both were great, the Reuben and club sandwiches were great as well, and the service was fantastic!

Whenever my wife and I visit Ellijay, Georgia, we always make it a point to stop at the Cantaberry Restaurant for lunch. The owners are very friendly, and the husband went to Johnson & Wales, one of the leading culinary schools in the nation. (I have to apologize as I'm terrible at remembering names). The food is great, the hospitality... More

This is a small lunchtime place in downtown Ellijay, and one of my favorite places to go. It's a great place to spend quality time with family and friends, whether you are eating lunch, or just stopping in for coffee and a dessert. The service is always friendly and excellent. Cantaberry also does catering and they know how to cook.... More

I liked the chicken salad, my husband loved the tomato basil soup. Not a huge menu but adequate. Dining area is small and outside seating is hot in the summer time.

It was a busy weekday lunch. We called about 15 minutes before we arrived because we had a group of 15. I honestly didn't expect them to have our table ready when we arrived. But they did! The place was at capacity but our services was excellent. Our server, Aubrey was fantastic. (I had a group of seniors with me... More

Location and food was great! It is a small place so you may have to wait during peak times, but it was worth it.
