What a great little bistro! We are visiting from South Florida and staying in Blue Ridge. We have our 6 year old black lab with us and needed a place where we could sit outside so we could take her with us. I am also a vegetarian. We found this amazing Bistro thru Google and absolutely loved it. We sat out back on their porch and had to go inside to order and they brought the food out to us. I had about 5 different options to choose from as a vegetarian. I chose the bean burger which was made by hand and baked in the oven. It was absolutely delicious!! My husband had the "grinder" which included about 4 different kinds of meats. He loved it. They also had the best homemade iced tea! The service was amazing and very friendly. I highly recommend this awesome bistro!

Found this gem today while roaming around Downtown Ellijay. We got the "Grinder" and the Gyro wrap to go. The macaroni salad is the bomb! Absolutely delicious! The owners were very warm and welcoming as well. Will definitely go back next time we visit from Florida. YUM!πŸ‘πŸ˜Š
