Found this little gem on the advice of an antique store owner...she was right on the money. Excellent grilled sandwiches and mango tea. The type of unique place that you just want to hang around in. If we are back in the area we will definitely go back to Panacea!

Great coffee and snacks. Terrific atmosphere and pleasant, nice employees. Tables, sofa's, multi level or walk out back to the river. Restrooms are super clean.

Super yummy black coffee. I love that they give a chocolate covered espresso bean with your cuppa! Really great feel inside, plus a patio out back. Parking is not super awesome if you're there when the area is busy - make sure you park when you see a spot.

The Java is primo and the food is tasty...sandwiches accommodating various dietary preferences...fresh, healthy generally...the space is comfortable, wifi'd, and more like your den than a restaurant...not quite sure how this all works as a business model....I hope so...because it is a cool place to meet and hang around...table turnover not being a high priority to management...

This has to be one of the coolest atmospheres in Waynesville, NC. Everything there is great but what makes the experience awesome is the wonderful staff. My wife and I have breakfast there several times a week and always look forward to it. Thanks to everyone at Panacea!

Excellent coffee house to hang out drink coffee and relax. The decor and layout just makes you want to take a seat and stay a while. Not much offered for breakfast food but the sandwiches and salads for lunch are excellent, unique, and affordable. Cool location in the Frog level of downtown Waynesville and has a stream running outside the... More

Stopped in for my first-ever visit last week. Went in for lunch and was pleasantly surprised by the creative menu offerings and the excellent coffee. The atmosphere is relaxing and warm. All around a nice place that I will most certainly visit again.

Best latte I've had in Waynesville. Enjoyed the atmosphere. The back deck is delightful. We will definitely be back. This is a great place to relax after shopping on Main Street.

Excellent sandwiches and drinks. Neat little 'hipster' place with a neat atmosphere. Prices were pretty good. The only shortcoming I had was the service was average.
