Believe me this place gets busy. It's been a Main Street landmark for ages and the food is plain and southern. If you're on a diet you may have to take a break. But it is really good and it draws the crowds to prove it!

Don't be fooled, on the face of it, the Clayton Cafe is the quentessential small town locals' cafe, but this establishment has become a "must stop" for the visiting tourists coming to this pictureque mountain town. A downtown main street tradition since 1931, the cafe is now owned and operated by Linda Plakstis and son, Joe Fingulin. Topping the food favorites is the golden deep fried chicken and home cooked vegtables. There is also a complete grill and salad menu(don't miss the famous Ed Poss salad). My favorite winter lunch is a bowl of their hot and steaming homemade soup. Breakfast cannot be forgotten with the best grits and country ham bisquit in town.
But the real charm is the cafe's downhome friendliness from Linda and Joe on down. Lots of locals mingling with visitors and even a community table in the back. Don't miss this true glimpse of Americana in Clayton, GA.

Tradional southern style small town cafe, and the place where the locals go. buckwheat and sweet potato pancakes are a must try. Good lunch menu as well.
