Very nice lunch spot

Very good and varied sandwiches...home-made! The special the day I went was an Italian Panini with basil pesto and homemade red potato salad. It was awesome. The chocolate chip cookie at $2.50 was a little overpriced. I should have gotten the key lime pie, which looked really good.

The food was very good. A great place to eat lunch when exploring Waynesville, N. C. The location was a bit hard to find, but once you take a few minutes to find, the effort is worth it.

Small cafe, but staff is beyond friendly! We walked in around 12:30pm & grabbed the last table while looking at the menu. We had found out any sandwich could be made on Gluten Free Bread & that is why we came here. Hubby ordered the BLT Chicken Cesar Wrap (he isn't GF) w/ potato salad, I had the Turkey Melt... More

My wife and I stopped by here for lunch on a Friday in December. It was a cool day and I hate we didn't get to sit in the courtyard. It is a beautiful little spot. So we sat inside at one of the few tables offered. We each had pininis and they were fixed perfectly. This is a farm... More

Small bistro with interesting quiche options for brunch and good soup. In good weather, very nice outdoor patio seating. Just around the corner from Main St. in downtown Waynesville.

After walking Main Street through the shops and booths of the fall fair, we found this little restaurant. Food is great, reasonable in price, and they have a nice patio. Walk up counter with salads, sandwiches, etc. everyone loved their lunch. And, no standing in a line for a restroom!

We came upon The Patio when looking for a light breakfast on Sunday morning. There were several quiches to chose from along with a variety of beverages and other goodies. The young lady waiting on us was very helpful and pleasant. The food is made fresh at the restaurant. We plan to return on our next visit to the area... More

Gluten free quiche was excellent. Tuna salad on strawberry bread even better. Outside seating in back with umbrella tables an a few seats in front.
