If you're looking for a good bakery in Asheville, then this needs to be one of your stops. The cinnamon buns alone...So Good. They're huge! Their muffins are good as well. The coffee is always fresh and hot. I've not tried their sandwiches yet, but that's next on the list.

This is a MUST VISIT cafe, we couldn't say enough about how wonderful and delicious everything we tried was (& we loaded up on assorted pastries to take with us to our cabin in Gatlinburg to enjoy later) and the staff was incredibly friendly and suggested places to see while visiting, also the hot cappuccino's on such a chilly day...

Sometimes the line is long, and parking is tough. Getting out of here really sucks, but...... the food is so totally worth it, worth every little bit of it. I highly recommend this no matter the time of year the soups made daily and always fantastic and the southern sandwich is phenomenal!

Poor attention to detail. Self-service silverware, but they were out of metal knives so we had to use plastic. A pint glass for dirty silverware right next to the clean stuff. Sausage, gravy and biscuits severely lacking in sausage and otherwise unspectacular.

Walking down Haywood street looking for some where to have lunch around 130-2. A lot of places were closed & we were starving. The special on the board outside was a sun dried veggie burger . That sounded delicious. That is what I ordered on sun dried tomatoe bread. The bread was thick and soft , toasted perfectly. The dressing... More

I stopped in here because I needed to use the wifi. I ordered orange juice for $2 and it was really good. I wanted to order something to eat but couldn't because they were closing up. Maybe next time.
