Can be a bit slow sometimes, but worth the wait! One time we went in and the people in front of us were 'up sold' to make their ice creams into shakes and it took 15-20 minutes. Im not super patient:)

Planned to try this restaurant after reading rave reviews on TA. So glad we did. The chicken salad on Apple spinach salad was wonderful. The chicken wild rice soup was creamy & full of chicken. Lunch at Cantaberry was the highlight of our visit in historic Ellijay.

They make the best Chicken Salad served in croissants. They have wonderfully smooth tomato bisque soup. Please save room for their delicious homemade desserts.
