Love the new location on the roundabout. Same great food in a much nicer atmosphere. One of the most consistently good places in Ellijay to eat. The Rueban is always top notch. You absolutely must try the Tomato Basil Soup! It is delicious.

Have only eaten in Ellijay the one time at Cantaberry. It is more of a laid back sandwich shop, not what I believe would sere your needs. I would continue to search on line to look for something else.
