#1 – Take Home Size

Liz, the Rum Cake Lady, makes her decadent desserts just like “mami” used to — with fresh eggs, almonds, butter, sugar, flour and real gold rum. The Mini Bundt Rum Cake serves 1-2, and comes in Golden, Limoncello, Chocolate or Salted Caramel Chocolate. Pair it with an authentic Cuban café con leche for the ultimate experience. Que rico!

#2 – Start Your Day Right

It’s never too late for breakfast (or brunch) at the Farm House! Located just a few steps down from Main Street in a cozy courtyard, it’s the perfect spot to start your day with made-from-scratch, farm-fresh comfort foods (and maybe a mimosa or two!).

#3 – Spice Up Your Burger

There are concert posters on the walls and tunes in the air at this music-centric pub. Grab a burger and a local brew or mixed drink from the bar. Or, tuck in to a signature app like the fried deviled eggs, pork rind basket or roasted brussels sprouts. Rock on!

#4 – Make It Yours

Build your own 14″ pizza — or pick from one of the many specialty pies, like the Margherita or Bigfoot Supreme — and enjoy it all with a relaxing view of the Toccoa River and downtown McCaysville. And yes, there’s beer and wine to go with that pizza!

#5 – Grab Some ’Cue

Grab it by the plate or grab it by the pound … just make sure you get some, because the barbecue here is that good! It comes from a real hardwood smoker, and is served with your choice of special-recipe original or sweet sauce. The chicken salad is also a specialty — worth a second trip.
