Salads, sandwiches, soups, and desserts are all appealing and delicious. Often crowded small restaurant, but definitely worth a wait.

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.
