If you are in Ellijay around lunch, do not pass this place by. Best Soup and Sandwich within 50 Miles. Very tasty and plentiful. This would be the second time I have ate there and it is very good.

Super affordable, super delicious, super sweet waitress. We had the Reuben and Cantaberry club sandwich. Both were tasty. And it’s cute inside. We chose to sit outside though as it was a beautiful day out.

I don't know for sure but have never seen any dogs inside. They might allow outside on patio.

Have only eaten in Ellijay the one time at Cantaberry. It is more of a laid back sandwich shop, not what I believe would sere your needs. I would continue to search on line to look for something else.
