The staff were fun and friendly, the food was good, and the tea/coffee was excellent! A little pricey but on par for Asheville. Would go back!

There are not many places in Asheville to get coffee at 10:00 am. I stumbled on to this place while walking downtown. The coffee was good and service was friendly.
