Your Table Is Ready
If you go hungry around here, it’s your own fault!
Our area is blessed with a delicious mix of down-home restau- rants, upscale eateries and casual dining options. You’ll have no trouble finding the perfect spot for a romantic dinner, a quick lunch or an evening out with a table full of friends.
Start your mountain mornings with a mocha and muffin at G&G Bakery & Café. If the weather is nice, sit outside and enjoy your breakfast sandwich overlooking the town square at Cabin Coffee of Blairsville. Or, dig into a hearty — and locally sourced — country breakfast at The Sawmill Place. You can order it “covered and smothered” at the Waffle House. And for break- fast on the go, it’s hard to beat coffee and a donut at Dunkin Donuts or a quick over-easy at the Huddle House Restaurant. For a healthy option, give S&S Smoothies & Supplements a try.
Sit Down or on the Go
For lunch — or dinner as we call it in the South — it’s hard to beat the fresh-made sandwiches and daily specials at The Avia­ tor Café or Griddle Café & Deli. Grab a sub at Sammie’s Sub Shop, or join the locals at the Hole in the Wall or Fatz Café. For lunch with a view, don’t miss The View Grill, a hidden gem
overlooking Butternut Creek Golf Course. For a quick chicken fix, Zaxby’s or Chick­fil­A are great options. Of course, you can always pop in (or drive through) one of the other quick-serve favorites like KFC–Taco Bell, McDonald’s or Burger King.
Supper’s on the Table
If you’re ready to get a little sauce on your hands, check out the finger-licking barbecue at Jim’s Smokin’ Que or Rib Country. A classic Southern meat-and-three awaits you at Cook’s Country Kitchen and The Blairsville Restaurant. At Copeland’s Burgers & Southern Eats, just pick your patty, choose your cheese and enjoy an incredible gourmet burger. The seafood is always fresh at Mike’s Seafood Market & Grill, where you can savor fresh and succulent shrimp, clams, oysters and more.
At Brother’s at Willow Ranch, signature items include certi- fied USDA-choice Black Angus Beef and local mountain trout. Across the street, Brasstown Valley Resort & Spa is famous both for its Friday evening seafood buffet and Sunday brunch. Across the line in historic Hayesville, NC, don’t miss the upscale dining and well-chosen selection of wines at The Copper Door.
The unique Mediterranean and Italian dishes at Michaelee’s Italian Life Caffe are a great way to start a perfect date night. The Flying Trout offers casual fine dining, a full bar and enter- tainment. And you’ll enjoy weekly specials and a comfortable atmosphere at Monet’s Italian Grille & Pizzeria. Up the road in Hiawassee, you’ll find lakeside dining and fine international cui- sine at The Ridges Resort & Marina.
Eats from Around the World
American cuisine isn’t the only thing cooking around here. When you’re ready for something a little different, head over to The Sushi Shack for a tuna roll or Bento Box, or go Greek at K&L Gyros & More. Monte Alban is the place for sizzling faji-
