Lovely, small, corner spot that reminded us of a cafe in Paris. Such inventive choices for lunch. The Bomba BLT is out of this world with bacon, chicken, avocado, tomato, cheddar, lemon mayo on homemade brioche. The vegetable soup was the best I have ever...More

We had French toast with bacon and fruit salad. French toast and bacon were good but fruit salad was horrible. Not impressed.

Went to Bomba for dinner. New french oriented menu for fine dining. Very small, maybe seating for 12-16 people. Excellent selection of wines. Some of us had the 4 course dinner, Bordeaux, which included a lobster bisque (broth, not cream) and a large veal chop....More

Stumbled upon this cute corner cafe on the edge of the art scene in Asheville. I had a cup of coffee and a breakfast arepa--a cornmeal pancake stuffed with egg, cheese and avocado along with some very fresh salsa. It was the most delicious thing...More

The newest venture from Hector Diaz, Bomba is a small bites, quick service cafe and bar with a European feel. Serving espresso drinks from 1000 Faces, full bar with an extensive liquor list and finely crafted cocktails along with craft beers and wonderful half bottles of wine. Our small plates are a great way to experience the amazing flavors Hector is known for creating at a reasonable price.
