Our favorite Italian in Blairsville, GA is Michaelee's Caffe

Michaelees Caffe in Hiawassee, GALooking for an amazing restaurant in the Blairsville, GA mountains? Well do we have one for you... Michaelee’s Chocolate Caffe is located in beautiful downtown Blairsville, GA on the square. It’s also right down the street from our Blairsville Coldwell Banker High Country office - don’t you know we’d love to have lunch a few times a week if we were in that office more, but for now it's quite a treat for us.

Michaelee's Caffe is a full service boutique restaurant with very, and I mean very, generous portions, that also specializes in amazing desserts and espresso based coffee drinks. Gourmet fudge is also made right there with the finest and freshest ingredients. Just look at one of our favorite dishes... Lasagna Napoletano Italiano and a wonderful house salad with focaccia bread. Half of this Michaelees Caffe in Hiawassee, GAcame home for dinner too, as you can see those generous portions. Well, I might have been able to eat a little more, but had to save room for the delightful desserts. So hard to choose from them all, but today we decided on the Kahlua Toffee Chocolate Mousse Cake.

The dining experience for lunch or dinner is always warm and inviting. This family owned and operated restaurant is a real gem in the downtown Blairsville, GA area. The Master Chef is Michael Collins, Sous Chef Lenny Collins and the interior was designed by Lisa Collins. Make sure you take some time to stop in and you’ll agree that Michaelee’s will be one of your favorite restaurants too.

Doyle's Cedar Hill in Murphy, NCOn our most recent visit to Doyle’s for lunch of course we always ask to sit out on the porch and always ask for James as our waiter.  We decided to both have on one of the daily specials that Chef and Owner, Doyle Smith, had prepared; hand made Mushroom Alfredo Tortellini on a bed of spinach and a lovely garden side spring salad. I can tell you, it was delicious and wish it was a permanent pasta dish on their extensive menu.
