This restaurant sent two former "yankee" preppies home with pride for being adopted southerners. As Duke and UNC grads, we appreciate the chance to show off the south for its friendly elegance- something the snooty Philadelphia mainliners or Princeton preppies might not grasp. We were casually dressed and fit right in to a bustling Caffe Rel on a slow June afternoon everwhere else. Locals and tourists alike can't stay away from this remarkable place. You will read other reviews about the location and hilarious setting for such a fine culinary experience at a super reasonable , quite astonishing really, price. Excellent service too. I found this spot thru tripadvisor and will be forever grateful as we head to Franklin frequently from Cashiers. Don't miss CAFFE REL. It's a conversation piece with a friendly southern pedigree.
