The Picnic Basket Cafe

The Picnic Basket Café is an eclectic mix of spicy & sweet, hot & cold, indoors & out, and old & new. Nestled on a Creekside on South Main Street in Clayton, Georgia, the Picnic Basket Café offers bold & spicy flavors, without being too hot, and finish it with Mayfield Ice Cream, Sundaes, and Milkshakes.
Our style is a bit different, but we think you will enjoy the results. You simply choose your base – Tortilla or Quesadilla, Grilled or Cold Sandwich, Corn Chips, Salad, or Jumbo Baked Potato – and pile up whatever you want on it from our Hot Bar or Cold Salad Bar. We will never tell you how we will serve your food. It will be your way every time. We sometimes have Homemade Special Entrees and have several Homemade Hot Soups to offer, particularly when the weather turns cooler.
We have (12) Flavors of Mayfield Ice Cream and can make custom milkshakes and sundaes. We sell Coca-Cola drinks, fresh brewed iced tea, and hot coffee. We will also serve homemade Hot Cocoa when the weather cools off a bit. We always have a supply of fresh-baked desserts that range from Homemade Pound Cake Cupcakes, Cookies, Brownies, and Mini Fruit and Nut Hand-Pies. Our baked goods are worth the trip, too.
We have a large play area for the kids and offer lots of activities. We offer Free Wi-Fi and are Pet-Friendly, but ask that you maintain full control of your pet at all times. We have (2) Air Conditioned Dining Areas, a large Covered Porch for Dining, and ample outside dining, as well. The breeze is even nice on our hottest days. We have a gift shop with handmade crafts and wooden signs.
Future expansion will include a Fire Pit for S’mores, Pumpkin Patch, Christmas Tree Lot, Gazebo, and Gospel & Bluegrass Music.
Again, The Picnic Basket Café is a bit different, but we offer a unique dining experience and room to move around freely, rather than being bound to a table. All of the food is prepared to your specifications, so it should always be the way you like it. You may have to wait a minute for our handmade items, but you will only have to wait once.
Thank You and God Bless You
We look forward to seeing you!
