Read reviews and decided to give it a try. It was very busy because the food and service is great. Not too pricey good atmosphere you can eat inside or outside. Homemade eats. Highly recommend you try this place

This our favorite lunch spot in Dahlonega. Delicious sandwiches and soups... especially the tomato bisque. Cookies, cakes...kills me to pass them up, but had self-control this trip.

Had lunch and coffee here when we visited for the day. Staff is very friendly and attentive. Food was good and the iced coffee was as well. They had some great looking desserts that I will have to try when I return someday.

My husband ordered the sausage, biscuits and gravy, which were all delicious. I am a breakfast pastry lover, so I had the eclair, which was much superior to the average eclair you get at a doughnut shop; it was a very light-tasting French-style eclair with...More
