Hallelujah Acres Café A Delicious Success!
Located in the Main Building at Hallelujah Acres International Headquarters here in Shelby, North Carolina, we have one of the finest dining facilities in the area.
The dining room walls have been painted with beautiful pastel colors and decorated with gorgeous tapestries. Old-time lighting fixtures dangle from the ceiling as soft Christian music provides a peaceful ambiance.
A kind and caring wait staff are there to take your order in a dining room that will seat almost 100 people. Often you can get right in, but some days there is a brief wait for a table.
Our menu is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen and contains offerings to please the most discriminating palate. Dishes include gorgeous salads, pizza (my favorite), Taco Salads and so much more. And you can end your meal with (believe it or not) desserts of cheesecake, apple pie ala mode and more – all Hallelujah Diet approved!
The Café is open from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Takeout orders are available in addition to in-house dining. Learn more about the Café.
In the kitchen preparing the food we have Executive Chef Kirk Talley and his dedicated crew.
Chef Talley had 20 years in food service prior to joining us. He has served as chef in two different country clubs. Although he had no previous experience in vegetarian cuisine, he has taken to it like a duck to water and is producing some of the most taste tantalizing dishes I have ever had my palate tickled with, using mostly organic produce.
As people learn about the Hallelujah Acres Café they are traveling from further and further distances. When in town, I try to spend an hour or so in the Café each day greeting and welcoming first-timers.
Recently, I talked with a couple who had just learned about the Hallelujah Acres Café a few days before and had driven from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, a four-hour drive each way, just to have lunch and visit Hallelujah Acres for the very first time. The next day a family told me that they had driven 3 ½ hours each way to have lunch at the Café.
Here at Hallelujah Acres we also provide a separate dining room for special events and business meetings. The Chamber of Commerce, ladies groups, Church groups, and others use this room for their meetings while enjoying a delicious meal.
All our offerings are plant-based, which means there is no animal flesh or dairy contained in anything on the menu. Our cheeses are made with nuts and seeds and are absolutely delicious. You will not find refined sugar, refined grains, caffeine, or table salt in any of the offerings.
You may ask, how can anything not containing something from an animal or containing no refined sugar or table salt taste so wonderful? All I can say is “come and see for yourself!”
I believe you will be pleasantly surprised.
