My wife and were passing through Tallahassee and stopped at Canopy Road Cafe. The food was absolutely delicious. I wish they had more outdoor seating, but that's just me. We would definitely go back if we ever find ourselves in Tallahassee again.

We had a decent breakfast here. The pancakes were good. The staff were efficient and friendly. Google maps had trouble finding it.

Touring Tallahassee for just a day & found this cafe. What a great meal to start the day. It opened early to allow early start at Indian Mounds. Wonderful service, clean & fresh atmosphere.... And super delicious food.

Really enjoyed breakfast here. Gluten free bread, pancake and waffle options. Very nice staff and great service. Small, bright and modern - expect a wait on weekend mornings.

We had to wait around 30 minutes and they have nowhere to sit and wait. People were just standing outside waiting for their name to be screamed. Othee than that, the food was great and the service was too. Would definitely recommend it.

We are just a tiny little place so it can get a little crazy when we go on a wait. We appreciate your patience and your feedback. Thanks!

Found this place by accident. Had a very good egg, bacon & cheese sandwich with a side of cheese grits for lunch. It was really good and affordable. My only complaint is their coffee. It could be improved.

Thats unfortunate to hear about the coffee, as we usually get great feedback on it. It is provided by lucky goat, who is a wildly popular local roaster. Thank you for your review

We are five people traveling from Jacksonville, FL to Destin, Fl. with a small dog. Are we able to eat outside with the dog on a leash?

Southern style Diner food with a twist. 2 great locations to serve you, with a third on the way. Locally owned and operated for 10 years.
