Had lunch today at the Bistro. Place was so busy, yet we had our food within 15 minutes. Not 90 minutes like the place across the square. My Cuban sandwich was spot on, as well as the cowboy caviar. Service was fast and friendly And we could have our dog on the back porch. And a dog treat to boot. This is the best place I've tried in all of Ellijay

My wife's parents that live in the area suggested this spot for lunch when we were there for a visit. Food and service were spot on. The owners are super friendly. I wholeheartedly reccomended this place when you're in need of a well prepared, quick bite.

An amazing quaint bistro with delicious homemade food and a incredibly friendly staff. The apple slaw and cuban sandwich are worth the trip alone, then throw in a homemade cookie and your lunch is perfect.
