On entering the restaurant, I said, "Oh, you're getting a new floor." The reply was, "No, we're not." The tiles had been ripped off half of the restaurant floor. How is the floor washed?

Cute little resturant in the heart of old downtown Ellijay. Best BLT I have ever had. Good service and very reasonable. Also, close to all of the shops, antiques stores and resturants in Ellijay.

This quant little restaurant is well worth the hour drive from our house. If you go, order the tomato basil soup, the turkey-bacon-avocado sandwich and TRY to save room for the best homemade desserts ever!
