Parking is the first issue when deciding to visit this restaurant at lunch time. The small lot is shared by a large insurance agency and three other businesses, including Paisley Cafe. We appeared to get the last parking place near the 11:00 opening, and yet,...More

This tucked away gem is worth seeking out. Delicious food, friendly service. Cheese grits to die for. They even have a small meeting room if you have an event.

I went to Paisley for my birthday to have brunch with my family. We had a great time and a great meal. Brian took great care of us. The Nutella bread pudding was fantastic. Can’t wait to go back.

It's a funky little place with no tablecloths but lots of things to look at on the walls and sitting around. We had reserved a private room for our ladies group, which tends to laugh a lot! Our waiter Justin was gracious, efficient and managed...More

I really enjoyed a Cuban accompanied by black beans and rice. During a previous visit, the turkey, apple butter and brie sandwich with lobster bisque soup was excellent! Funky atmosphere just adds to the experience!

I don't believe they do. But they do have a back room with large table you can reserve for occasions.

When lightning strikes, sometimes you have to follow it. Kiersten Lee decided to open Paisley Cafe after a 19 year career in banking. She fell in love with the Midtown Design Center and decided to open up a cafe on a whim. Being able to provide the highest quality ingredients and highest level of customer service is Paisley's foundation. We are not only able to nourish our customers physically, but also emotionally and spiritually through our "Love on a Plate".
