Pretty cool little place. We grabbed breakfast there before 10am so crowds were not bad. I had the Grit Cakes which are grits and black beans rolled in corn mill and topped with pico and a special sauce that made the dish. I have to say it was amazing! Only negative I would say is the cost of a canned... More

A group of us rented a cabin in Black Mountain and had breakfast here on our way out on Sunday. It's located in an old house and the food is unreal good! My wife and I had the Big Boy Burrito and the Huevos Rancheros - both were very good. Everyone in our group seemed to be very satisfied. I... More

No trip to Black Mountain would be complete for us without having breakfast at Louise's. Great coffee and delicious food. The potatoes are fantastic!

Old house which has been converted into a "no frills" restaurant - small so plan to wait for a table if it's on a Sat/Sunday morning for brunch. You order at the cashier and pay -then go sit and wait for your food. Very good food and very reasonably priced. I'd recommend and go again too!

The soup was delish and came out piping hot! We always enjoy the atmosphere and service. They use fresh ingredients and it shows!

I've eaten here several times over the past year! Dining out on the porch is the best and the pimento cheese with tomato is amazing!

This restaurant is so quaint, located in a historic home in black mountain. The breakfast is fantastic but seats fill up fast so go early. We like the French toast, the grits are fantastic, and the power roll up is a nice "healthy" option.

Great coffee (organic, locally roasted), great food, reasonable prices and friendly staff! My only complaint is that their high chairs are old and don't have straps.
