Wow what a great place. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere even better. We enjoyed a great relaxing breakfast outside with wonderful cool mountain breezes. A definite place to revisit next time we are in Black Mountain and there will be a next time because Black Mt. is such a nice place to visit.

We ate breakfast at Louise's Kitchen and had the two eggs, grits, bacon and muffin along with coffe and tea. The food was very good especially the grits which had rosemary in them. They use fresh local food and you can taste the difference. The service was excellent even though they were busy. We ate outside on the porch and... More

If you like breakfast foods, this is a good place to get egg based things all day. The food is good, the outdoor seating is fun and it is dog friendly on the porch and in the yard.

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
