Read reviews and decided to give it a try. It was very busy because the food and service is great. Not too pricey good atmosphere you can eat inside or outside. Homemade eats. Highly recommend you try this place

This our favorite lunch spot in Dahlonega. Delicious sandwiches and soups... especially the tomato bisque. Cookies, cakes...kills me to pass them up, but had self-control this trip.

Had lunch and coffee here when we visited for the day. Staff is very friendly and attentive. Food was good and the iced coffee was as well. They had some great looking desserts that I will have to try when I return someday.

Great eggs and soup...lots of tempting bakery items but we resisted. Eggs had relish so slightly sweet.

Great lunch. I had the chicken salad with whole wheat bread which was delicious. My husband had the trio of egg salad, chicken salad, and tuna salad---and he loved it. My friends had the bacon, pimento cheese, and tomato sandwiches. The cafe was small and...More
