Veranda's #1 restaurant rating in Black Mountain is very well deserved. I had the turkey sandwich on cranberry and nut bread and it was perfect. As a menu option I had half a sandwich with a cup of Philly Cheesesteak soup. Very good. There are quite a few selections of soup to choose from.

I don't care what time of year, what the weathers, what day of the week, that Veranda is always busy. And with good reason. They feature at least four soups daily as well as other specials. The waitresses are always pleasant, and the kitchen is quick.If you aer lucky, you will be there on a day with Ham Salad Sliders... More

This is just the spot for a nice lunch with friends. The Artichoke and Crab soup was one of the Best I have had in a long time. Sandwiches were excellent. Service is Friendly, Knowledgeable, and makes you feel right at home. Good place and a winning staff.

The Veranda serves a delicious lunch. Fresh ingredients, friendly staff.! Great soup selections. We had a party of six and we all chose the Hungarian Mushroom soup. It was sooo good. All the sandwiches from the vegetarian to the roast beef were wonderful. If you are in the Asheville, take a step back in time and drive to Black Mountain... More

Every October when I visit the mountains of Asheville-Black Mountain, it is a must to visit the Veranda. It appears the restaurant strives for the freshest ingredients possible which makes for a delicious meal. This past October I was able to visit twice. I always look forward to having lunch here. The pies & cakes are generous portions & yummy... More

Knowing what to expect from experience to experience at the same restaurant is so important to me. Veranda exhibits the kind of consistency I want! It is my favorite lunch restaurant in Western NC. The grilled Panini's, the daily soup selections, and great salads! are worth the stop. It's a local and visitor staple, for sure. So if there is... More

What a cute cafe! The food was delicious. I had a half of a chicken salad croissant sandwich and a cup of the tomato feta basil soup. My husband had the ham and cheese sandwich on pretzel bun. For dessert, I had a wonderful autumn spice layer cake. I would recommend this restaurant for my friends. Everything was wonderful, but... More

We stopped in for a light lunch and were very pleased. We all had a soup and I added a half sandwich which was good but not great. The cafe has a nice look and we were fortunate to eat after the lunch time rush. A very good choice while visiting Black Mountain. Would like to go back and try... More
