Interesting old church turned into a restaurant

My first time here was back in 2006, and I came back years later. Food is still great. I had the Esquire and couldn't finish it. The chocolate malt was excellent. The food took awhile to come, but they only had 1 person in the kitchen for some reason.

Very charming place in the white-water area of West Virginia. Their fair is light - sandwiches, burgers, salads and such - but they were delicious. We had a salad with strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, a little feta. Kris, my wife, had iced mint tea which was very flavorful and she loved. I had water - it was water. They also have...

The building is charming but the good feeling end there. The server was not attentive and the staff certainly needs training. We waited over 45 minutes for our simple breakfast food after ordering. We weren't even offered refills on coffee or water. When the food arrived, it was piecemeal and mediocre. Salty eggs, untoasted toast and greasy potatoes. If you... More

I really enjoyed my meal at the Cathedral Cafe. The atmosphere is awesome, as the restaurant is, in fact, inside of an old church - so just looking around is an experience in itself. There is even a shop upstairs. The food was tasty. Six in our party - and not one complaint. I had the vegetarian panini and it... More

We ate breakfast here the day after the holiday on July 5th. I figured it might be busy, so we called ahead and was told the wait was 30 minutes. When we arrived, I was surprised there was no line, but all tables were full. It was confusing as where to wait, as the sign said to seat yourself at... More

While I do understand that 4th of July is a busy day, it is the responsibility of the business to assure appropriate staffing. Sandwiches (two paninis) were decent but nothing impressive. SSS has more variety and more interesting and tastier food.

We go here for breakfast every year when we're here for our rafting trip. The coffee is great and so is the sausage gravy and biscuits. They have a great selection of dishes.

We had a terrific lunch in this converted church. The staff was very friendly and offered a big selection of sandwiches, paninis, pastries and coffees. Despite being a pretty popular location at lunchtime, service was quick. It's such a cool atmosphere that we lingered after our meal to explore the other rooms and items for sale. We've been told by... More
