Cantaberry Restaurant in downtown Ellijay was a great lunch spot! Soup and sandwiches are all freshly made on site and are delicious. Great waitstaff too!

The food here is always good. They are famous for their homemade chicken salad with grapes and pecans and their tomato basil soup. They have cakes to die for but I try to refrain that!!!

Have been visiting for a number of years through two ownerships. The recipes of the first owners has been carried over since they were so successful and have not changed much (thankfully)

As soon as we arrived we were greeted with the smell of soup, sandwich, and even some cake! I had the turkey bacon, and it was probably the best sandwich I've ever had. The 'she crab' soup was something I could eat for the rest of my life. It was just an overall good experience and a great lunch.

Food was good but just what you would expect from a deli . Soups were the same two that they had last time we tried this place, so I doubt the homemade reference. Price was a bit high for just a deli sliced sandwich and a cup of soup. But all in all not a bad experience.

When visiting Ellijay and shopping from store to store, you need to stop by Cantaberry's and enjoy a fabulous cup of soup and one of their amazing sandwichs!

The lemon tarts are the best, so is the tomato basil soup. Service was just mediocre but the food was delicious.

This was my first time eating here. 3 of the 6 people in my group got the chicken and wild rice soup and it was amazing! I did not get it and after one taste of my husbands I immediately regretted that decision!!!! Everything we got was delicious!

I have eaten at Cantaberry Restaurant every time I visit Blue Ridge. It is always great - delicious soups (my favorite is the tomato basil), sandwiches and desserts. Service is consistently quick, friendly, and competent. Don't miss this gem in Elijay or Blue Ridge!

Everything my family ordered was homemade and fresh. Soup was amazing as was the cheesecake. Do not miss!
