Best soup ever!

Been here many times and my family loves it. I usually have the chicken and wild rice soup. Absolutely yummy! The staff is friendly and hospitibale. I recommend going before 12:00 because it fills up fast!

Only had Coffee and Dessert but they were very tasty. I will try more next time I'm in town. This is a lunch only. The menu had a very nice selection. The salads that I saw going out were huge and looked very tasty.

One of Ellijay's very best Family Restaurants just off the round-about in the downtown area. Great food and very friendly staff.

We loved it on our last visit and now it is one of our favorite lunch spots in Ellijay, especially if you have a pet. Sit outside at one of the small tables. We had 4 adults and 2 dogs, there is room though it looks like you might spill out onto sidewalk. No problem, even when it rained, we... More

Two adults and three children ate here for lunch. The menu is versatile but simple enough for everyone to easily find something to eat. The children all had grilled cheese sandwiches which were enjoyed by all. Several different side choices were offered with the sandwiches so you are not stuck with chips if you want a healthy option. The two... More

Children's plates... More

I have been to this restaurant for 6 years and have never had this experience-just were having a problem that time I guess.
