Lovely cosy cafe with no nonsense quick service. Friendly staff and seemed frequented by locals too. Soups were tasty and hot, sandwiches well loaded and delicious. Would recommend to anyone en route from Atlanta to the Smokeys.

Busy noonday atmosphere, serving a crowd quite efficiently. Service was very friendly, quick and no mistakes. The food (sandwiches and soup) was presented well and tasty. Portions were very sufficient. The price was very reasonable, just about what you would expect at a burger joint for lunch. Did not order dessert but the display looked very good.

Visited Friday evening after arriving to town. No wait to be seated. Our waitress was wonderful they had gluten-free bread options and the sandwich was delicious. The homemade cakes for dessert looked really good but we did not have any room to spare.

Friendly quick service, simple well prepared food is a winning combination! Yum Yum, and the dessert counter is like WOW! Some one stop me please. If I lived here it would be a regular on my list.

I love their special Chicken Salad. I got the chicken salad and tomato basil soup. SO GOOD. Who would have thought o put grapes in chicken salad. My husband had the tune and it was good too.

My boyfriend had the tomato bisque (although they don't call it a bisque, it is) and I wish I had ordered it! The chicken and wild rice soup was good but does not compare to the tomato soup. The apple salad was extremely good as well. We will return some day!

Cantaberry is one of Ellijay's little jewels. But come early, it gets busy. Very popular among the locals. Food was good, service was excellent.
