Skylines Cafe

Skylines Cafe

8878 US 70 Bus Hwy W Ste 100, Clayton, NC, United States, North Carolina 919-550-7619

skylines store frontWhat’s in a Name……..
‍Skylines Cafe & Bar opened its doors for dinner on March 5th, 2007. The name was inspired by changing the decor of the restaurant that was here before. Glass panels were put in to provide some separation between the raised bar area and the dining room. My landlord asked me what I wanted on those panels. I knew that it should be one word with as few letters as possible so that it was easily recognized and easy to remember. I knew it would be American cuisine but had no clue what to call it. In a roundtable discussion the name Skylines was spoken and we all agreed that would be perfect. Now I had something unique to put on the panels and easily developed the first menu based on the selected cities of San Francisco, New York, Chicago and St. Louis. To this day the panels are a conversation piece and guests have fun guessing which cities are represented.

About Our Food…..
We serve fresh, delicious food made with quality ingredients. All of our salad dressings, soups, sauces, desserts are made in house using Canola Oil (no soybean oil), Real Butter, Callebaut Belgian Chocolate (for desserts) to name a few. In the 10 years since opening, many guests dietary restrictions have changed and guests are 1000% more aware of the food that they eat. In November, 2016 we partnered with Clayton Bakery who makes our Brioche buns for our Lamb Burgers, regular burgers and crabcake sandwich. They also make our Texas Toast for our delicious sandwiches as well as provide us with Wheat Toast.
My mom taught me to bake and I make the desserts here. The usual menu consists of Key Lime Pie w/animal cracker crust, Banana Cheesecake w/oreo cookie crust, Creme Brulee made with Bourbon Madagascar Vanilla Beans and Flourless Chocolate Torte which is gluten free and has no sugar added. Some other desserts are Bourbon Pecan Pie, Bread Pudding, Seasonal Cheesecake, German Chocolate Pie and some other fun experiments.

sylines large groupDon’t ever take off of the menu….
A favorite is our Spinach Salad tossed with apple poppyseed dressing, Skylines Salad tossed with balsamic vinaigrette, Chicken Salad made with sour cream and dill and our Stuffed Chicken served with Dijon Parmesan Sauce. Those items have been here since day 1. Other favorites added have been the Calamari drizzled with Balsamic Glaze and Honey, Beer Battered Zucchini Wedges with Sriracha Aioli, Black & Bleu Beef and the Pecan Crusted Swai w/tequila lime sauce.

You can join us 7 days and 6 nights. We are open throughout the whole day on Monday-Saturday and serve Brunch only on Sundays. We have local artists who display their art for 6 weeks at a time. We have a large patio if you want to bring your pets, a kid friendly menu, all ABC permits, plenty of free parking. We will serve you exceptional food at a good value with friendly service. My original tagline is “Where guests become friends and friends become family” which has always fit in this wonderful community. After all, we have been “Serving Foodies 10 years and counting.”
