Opened in 1931 in a building that first served as the local Trailways Bus station, the Clayton Cafe is the landmark eatery in Clayton. It’s had numerous owners over the years, including the late Quincy and Jurelle Webb. Quincy was an early supporter of this website and I really miss talking to him. Over several years, he shared numerous memories of growing up in South Georgia before wanderlust took him to the mountains.
As to the restaurant, it has one of the most popular breakfasts in Northeast Georgia, among a whole slew of home cooked favorites. And the sign is a landmark, too. It is the original Trailways sign turned upside down and repainted. Oh, and when Walt Disney was filming The Great Locomotive Chase in the area in 1956, he was a regular diner at the cafe.
