“Mountain Cooking in the middle of Clayton, Georgia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Down home mountain cooking. All the locals hang out at the Clayon Cafe. It's right in the middle or several shops including the old drug store with a soda fountain, the best hardware store I've ever been in and Cannon's on the square is my favorite place to shop. Everyone will evnjoy both up and down stairs clothing selections. Clayton Cafe is right in the middle of everything. You will go back in years and reminsece the days of breakfast, lunch so the special fountains beverages they will prepare for you.

“Being going downhill last few years.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

We've been to Clayton Cafe a few times over the years from 2006 to just recently. I'm less impressed each time. The place is a diner so you don't expect fancy decor, they have tables and chairs that resemble stuff from the dive Sam the Lion ran in Last Picture Show. The place is always packed, lotsa locals plus passers through keep it that way. The food is good Southern fare but nothing spectacular, once the novelty wears off. I do like their sweet potato fries and pancakes. The waitresses are very nice, as is the owner. I noticed they're rated 11th in Clayton so I plan to try out the other places next trip through Clayton. BTW, if you're a mtn. biker and wanna ride the Talulah Gorge, you can't stay in Talula Falls, there are no hotels. Clayton's 9 miles away and closest to Talula.

“Great home cooked meal with a friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

A great little home town place to eat with very good food and a exceptionally friendly staff. Had a hot roast beef sandwich that was very tinder with the best gravy ever. The waitress was more than friendly even though we were at the tail end of her shift. The owner was very nice and checked on us often to make sure we were happy with the food and service. Plan on coming back on my next trip through Clayton.
