Needed some real food so hopped a cab to this quaint cafe. The chicken salad salad was delicious - and others enjoyed their lunches as well. Cafe is on the back side of the building and has outdoor seating.

Absolutely delicious!!! The creative menu is tasteful and hits on every level. Chicken salad was superb. The grits with sausage was amazing!! I've never had a disappointing bite of food there. Even the strawberry lemonade was on point!! Well worth the price of admission

I have loved every meal I have ever had at Paisley Café! If the weather is nice, sit outside in the courtyard and savor the garden and the spectacular food! Every bite is made with love!

Expensive for Tallahassee but you get your money's worth. We had the asparagus eggs benedict, I believe they change their menu often, so you might have to flow with the choices for the week/month. We also had their prime rib sandwich (the special) which was...More
