Today my wife and I had sandwich and a homemade chicken and rice soup. One of the soups I have ever tasted. Obviously prepared from scratch. Will be back soon!

We had a great lunch at Cantaberry's! The soups are excellent and home made. The special sandwich yesterday was ham & thinly sliced apples with melted Brie on a croissant! Topped that off with a slice of homemade carrot cake, wow! Delicious! We'll be back!

Cantaberry is SO popular that it is often hard to get in to get seated without a considerable wait. Thus, until out of town family visited, we had never eaten here, despite living in Ellijay. We were not disappointed with the food. Very creative menu and consistently outstanding soups and desserts. Our family was thrilled and went back more than... More

Cantaberry Restaurant in downtown Ellijay was a great lunch spot! Soup and sandwiches are all freshly made on site and are delicious. Great waitstaff too!

The food here is always good. They are famous for their homemade chicken salad with grapes and pecans and their tomato basil soup. They have cakes to die for but I try to refrain that!!!

Have been visiting for a number of years through two ownerships. The recipes of the first owners has been carried over since they were so successful and have not changed much (thankfully)

As soon as we arrived we were greeted with the smell of soup, sandwich, and even some cake! I had the turkey bacon, and it was probably the best sandwich I've ever had. The 'she crab' soup was something I could eat for the rest of my life. It was just an overall good experience and a great lunch.

Food was good but just what you would expect from a deli . Soups were the same two that they had last time we tried this place, so I doubt the homemade reference. Price was a bit high for just a deli sliced sandwich and a cup of soup. But all in all not a bad experience.

Thank apluspoolmgt1
