Trip Advisor a Great Resource

Since I had a trip coming up to a Women's Retreat in Ridgecrest, NC area, I turned to Trip Advisor for recommendations of restaurants. The Veranda Cafe was the #1 listing for Black Mountain, NC (approx. 4 miles from my destination) -- I can understand why! The restaurant itself is very quaint and... read more

Welcomed warmly by staff on a cold, rainy day! Staff made recommendations on soups since some were already gone. Beer cheese was excellent! I had grilled cheese with tomato and bacon on ciabatta bread. Delicious!! Also no flavored coffee but what they had was great!

This restaurant offers a nice variety of healthy soups, salads, and sandwiches, as well as comfort food. It's a relaxed and not-too-loud setting. Prices are quite reasonable and the service is excellent. Definitely my go-to place for lunch in Black Mountain.

Larger than a tea-room, a fine luncheon atmosphere and a favorite of many locals! Good soups and salads. I've always enjoyed eating here and hope you will, too.

While visiting Black Mountain for the day on Friday, March 13th, we stopped here for lunch. Several great options on the menu along with specials of the day. They also have several hot soups available which were perfect for the cold, rainy day. Definitely try the Hungarian Mushroom Soup. Service was impeccable and our food was served quickly. They also...

After the hustle of downtown Asheville, the small village of Black Mountain was a welcome relief. It has many small shops and great eateries but does not have the massive amounts of people, yet. We got this place off tripadvisor and we are glad we did. Food was excellent. Hubby had a cup of soup, beet and it was good.... More
