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

We made plans for brunch here for Mother's Day, not knowing what kind of crowd to expect one of us arrived early. It was a beautiful morning and the staff was very nice while we waited. At 10:00 sharp they opened the gate and we...More

In a word, Paisley is Happiness. Diving a little deeper, this is truly a Tallahassee gem. I found this cafe about five years ago, and it became my regular Friday escape. I would go solo, with my notebook, and write or plan for a while...More

I don't believe they do. But they do have a back room with large table you can reserve for occasions.

When lightning strikes, sometimes you have to follow it. Kiersten Lee decided to open Paisley Cafe after a 19 year career in banking. She fell in love with the Midtown Design Center and decided to open up a cafe on a whim. Being able to provide the highest quality ingredients and highest level of customer service is Paisley's foundation. We are not only able to nourish our customers physically, but also emotionally and spiritually through our "Love on a Plate".
