Four of us recently had dinner at the lodge. My husband & I refuse to go to the cafe ( the 2 places are connected) because we have had bad breakfasts there in the past. We also find it to be not too clean. Our friends said the lodge was better and they are right. Wood floor rather than yucky... More

The Lodge is a great place to stop by for coffee and desserts either to eat in or to order to go. It's one of the few places we've found that offers a flavored decaf coffee to choose from.

Stopped bye on our way out of a Elk Banner for breakfast. My omelet was excellent and my wife's pancakes were very solid. We shared each other's entree and it our meals were too much to finish. The service was attentive and the food arrived quickly. Also reasonably priced. I definitely recommend this place to people visiting the Sugar or... More

We stopped in for a coffee and snack on a Friday afternoon and the coffee was very good. They had lots of delicious looking desserts, we had the zuchinni bread and it was very good.

The Lodge and the Banner Elk Cafe are connected, but are two separate restaurants. However, you can order off of either restaurant. Because my husband and I had a good lunch at the Cafe, we went to the Lodge for dinner. My husband had the pizza and he thought it was one of the best he's had. The waiter was... More

There was a line when we first approached the restaurant, and we thought we would have to wait a long time just to get coffee. I was surprised at how quickly they moved people into their seats even thought the place was packed. I simply wanted a good cup of espresso and a muffin, so I ordered from the coffee... More

I stopped in for a cup of coffee and found the espresso bar to be pretty limited. No choices of flavored cream. But the porch is nice. Could be a bit more sophisticated, but definitely the breakfasts looked good.

The Lodge serves up one of Banner Elk's best pizzas and it is always a pleasure to sit in their outdoor patio. But they have alot more than that, something to please everyone. I especially enjoy attending community meetings where they serve takeout pizza from the lodge. It's a sure way to keep your volunteers happy.

The Lodge is attached to its sister restaurant Banner Elk Cafe. When you come to eat there you get both menus and you can also order desserts or drinks from the espresso bar. Next door they also have an ice cream shop that's open in the summer. When ordering, be careful about ordering from different menus, it tends to come... More
