The wife and I came here for breakfast before we went to Asheville. The wait wasn't that bad. The food was really good. It definitely has a local feel and taste, so if you're used to Bob Evans, you'll be disappointed. Highly recommended.

Not good food. Not a comfortable place to go. It didn't seem very clean and the servers did not seem to like being there.

We visited Louise’s Kitchen for the first time in late January. We visited Louise’s Kitchen the second time on the next morning! We’re “variety is the spice of life” people, but the food was way too good and we wanted to try some of their other menu items. We have a 17 month son, so we always enter any restaurant... More

For lunch, we stopped at Louise's Kitchen from a tip from one of the store keepers. A farmhouse, turned into... More

The owners are transplants to North Carolina and have embraced the town and the suppliers in the area. Be sure to stop in for breakfast or lunch. Have the grit cakes which are so good. They put an interesting twist on the food.

casual relaxed place for breakfast in a Victorian house in Black Mountain, good food, counter service, seems to be a local favorite as it is always crowded when we go. Quirky decor, local artists on the wall. Indoor and outdoor seating (big wraparound porch)

We stumbled upon Louise's Kitchen and so glad we did! You go up to the counter in the back and order and pay. Self serve for drinks, silverware. Find a seat either inside or out and then they bring your food. We have been there several times since, so I can't remember all the different meals we picked, but we... More

Great place! Eclectic and fun decor. Food was delicious. I ordered the breakfast burrito and it was one of the best I've ever had. Good sized portions.

We had one morning in Black Mountain, so we needed to choose wisely for breakfast. Great decision! Staff and fellow customers are very friendly. We went with the french toast and veggie quesadillas and they were sizable plates and so delicious! Probably best enjoyed during the patio weather days, but overall you can't go wrong with this restaurant. Great place!
