After reading the reviews we had to try it. Sure enough, the grit cakes were beautiful/tasty and the lemonade was the best I've ever had. Lots of young people and children wandering in and out on the Sunday we were there which added to the casual, hippie-like atmosphere. Will definitely try other dishes the next time we're in Black Mountain--a... More

After a beautiful drive along the blue ridge parkway and a hike we were starving for some local fare We made our way to black mountain and discovered this gem. I had the grit cakes and my gf ate the big boy burrito. Both amazing, and for the price worth 5 stars !

We had seen mixed reviews on Tripadvisor but locals had given positive feedback on Louise's. Felt we should finally give it a try on our current visit. It is an old home with seating on the porch or rooms inside, for lunch there the menu seemed limited. You order at a counter where they use an iPad for payment, then... More

We were looking for somewhere to have breakfast on our way out of town, and this seems to be the only place in Black mountain. It obviously caters to locals since many seem to be here on this past Saturday morning. The restaurant is set up in an older house where you enter, then go to the back, place your... More

Average breakfast served in an old house with wrap around porch. You order up front when arriving and food is then brought to the table. Service so-so. They bring your food to the table and that it about it. I would prefer a full table experience. Some unique offerings but just tasted average in my opinion nothing over the top.... More

We have now eaten at Louise's Kitchen twice while visiting family in the area. The first visit we had breakfast. The last visit we had lunch and both were wonderful. For lunch I had the tomato soup and spinach salad. Everything was fresh and prepared as I wanted, swapping out the blue cheese for a milder cheese and omitting a... More

I was interested to try this place after searching for breakfast in Black Mountain with good reviews. I love the idea of restaurants in old homes, as it offers a charming extra to the experience. The advertised goal of Louise's is to offer a new twist on Southern comforts. I am usually all for this concept if it is done... More
