Cathedral Café

As it so often does, the changing autumn foliage prompted me to go on a leaf peeping journey. So I gathered a couple of my favorite people and hit the road. With no particular destination in mind, our travels took us over and under the New River Gorge Bridge, along Fayetteville Station Road, and included a leisurely stop in Fayetteville for lunch.

We decided on The Cathedral Café for our lunch spot. It had been some time since I’d eaten there, but it was just as good as I remembered. I was very excited to see “Classic Greek Gyro” on their menu, as this is a rare find in our area. It was naturally my first and immediate choice, and although it wasn’t quite authentic, it was still pretty tasty. They also have a wide variety of other yummy dishes, and I understand that locals absolutely love their coffee.  I’m sad to say I chose to decline and forgo my caffeine cravings since I was going to be in a car the next couple of hours.

One of the things I like so much about this café is the ambiance. It’s a very unique place, located in a repurposed church. The stained glass filters in sunlight that casts beautiful hues; lights are strung from the ceilings; the tables are all a work of art in their own right- each one sporting a different painting; and an eclectic collection of local art is displayed on the walls. They also have a gift shop where you can purchase a variety of fun items to keep for yourself or give away.

It’s certainly a neat little place, and one I’d encourage others to visit if you’ve never been. And if you’re so inclined, I’d also recommend poking around the town of Fayetteville for a bit while you’re there.
