So good we went twice

We ate here twice in one weekend, so that speaks pretty highly of the food. On our first visit, our waitress must have been having a bad day because it was remarkably dismal service--brought the correct number of water glasses to table, but only left some of them, etc. A different server helped... read more

Friendly staff. Okay food served leisurely in a lovely old repurposed cathedral. Too expensive for sandwiches served with potato chips. I like earthy, but this place could use a thorough cleaning. Bathrooms need attention.

Perfect breakfast spot to get a local flavor. Great food, interesting eclectic atmosphere, and friendly staff. Vegan options available. Even have some unique items and books for sale. This is not your plastic waffle house!

We just had an amazing culinary experience at Cathedral Cafe. We live in Tampa where it is quite the "mecca" for dining out. We really didnt expect much from Fayette West Virgina. Thats what we get for thinking!!!!! We enjoyed this lovely little place from the moment we stepped in. My very picky Uncle loved his sandwich. My fourteen year... More

My wife and I ate here twice and expect to eat here many more times in the future. The food was great and you could tell they wanted it to be good as it wasn't extremely fast food, but it didn't take forever either and was very hot when it arrived. You can tell it is a local favorite for... More

Maybe think hippie Starbucks with the very best locally sourced fresh organic food ingredients you could imagine. Lovely old church is a nice setting. Inside felt a little un polished, but clean & comfortable. Breakfast selection was a spectacle. Every item is amazing. Best Chai tea I've had in forever. Good coffee. Great service. I look forward to our next... More

Bacon was great, coffee very good. Enjoyed the uniqueness of the restaurant - very relaxed in every way, but with good service.

We stopped on a recommendation of our daughter-in-law and we happy she told us of the place. Every item on the menu had a little something special on it. For example, my chicken salad sandwich had some cranberry jelly on the croissant and that added so much. My husband's grilled cheese had several cheeses on it and a slice of... More

This is THE place for breakfast in Fayetteville. It is a lovely old church converted into a cool little spot to gather before all the fun adventures that await in this area. The food is absolutely delicious. I also loved their homemade chai tea which was spot on to my grandmother's cut out cookies at Christmas time. I believe they... More

A really nice place with great good and nice staff. I was with my daughter and wife and there was a little play area to keep her occupied. I asked to charge up my phone and that was no problem. The food was great and although the waitresses were busy they were still helpful. If I ever find myself in... More
