Great little sandwich shop in downtown Ellijay with both indoor and a Back Porch for outdoor eating. I've had a few different sandwiches and been very pleased with each, so continue to return whenever I come hiking around the area. The staff is always super friendly, the restaurant is always clean, and the covid practices feel clean & safe as well.

Perfect stop when passing through the mountains. We were driving around to see the pretty trees and wanted a light lunch and this bistro was just right. Nice and simple meals, sandwiches and chips, but they're homemade and very yummy. There's eating inside and outside and it's perfectly located in a adorable old downtown area.
