Best chicken salad

We were working in this little town and asked a local for advice on where to have lunch. She recommended either Cantaberry or the tavern across the street, and we decided to try Cantaberry. It was a lovely day, so we sat at a shaded table on the sidewalk. Service was very pleasant and prompt. We had two of the... More

It's always a blessed relief to find somewhere for lunch that is not a megachain plastic experience. Cataberry is a smallish homely independent operation with a bright (slightly knocked about) décor and a very friendly service. The food is great - soup, salads and sandwiches. Portions are satisfying, everything seems very fresh and produced on the premises. Definitely a place... More

The food and service were excellent. I ate there everyday for lunch over the long Memorial Day Weekend. I loved the Chicken Salad so much I bought a pound to bring home. It was especially good with their Apple Pecan Spinach Salad. Prices were excellent. Great value.

LOVE the chicken and wild rice soup - it never fails! Ordered a cup of soup with the 1/2 salad. I got the spinach salad with apple slices, blue cheese crumbles, and candied nuts with Raspberry Vinagerette on the side. Portions were filling and very fresh. Iced tea was fresh and flavorful. Wait staff is courteous and attentive. Save room... More

We are transplants from Atlanta, living in north Georgia for 25 years. Cantaberry has been here a long time, too, in an area where small, homey restaurants don't usually last very long. Friendly, attentive service and my wife says: : " the best chicken salad anywhere !"

Stopped in for lunch after morning shopping in the much improved downtown Ellijay and we could not have been more pleased with our choice. There seem to be a great mix between locals and visitors here. Food, service, and value were all exceptional. I went with the Chicken Salad which is a favorite of many and I was very satisfied....

If you want a great sandwich and a tasty bowl of soup then you gotta try a The Cantaberry. We had the best tomato basil soup then I ordered the Reuben sandwich which was delicious. Would have liked a slightly bigger selection.

While we were shopping in Ellijay we asked the local merchants where they enjoyed eating and the general consensus was the Cantaberry Restaurant. We were not disappointed to say the least. The sandwiches were freshly made and accompanied with a daily soup, pasta salad or chips all of which were delicious. The highlight was the blood orange loose leaf tea,... More
