Had Sunday breakfast here and there was plenty to choose from. Food was very good and came quickly. Lacking a little in atmosphere but appears quite popular with the locals.

Wow, what a breakfast sandwich! Go check out this place, the food is WOWZERS! It's got all your typical breakfast pastries but they take it up a notch with quality and taste! The sandwich I got had eggs, sausage, cheese, and this apple butter sauce, it was delicious! And very large so I ate half and saved the other half.... More

Downtown Asheville offers many quaint food spots...this is one of them. Serves breakfast & lunch, staff is young & personable and the selections offer some that are different from a Panera Bread. The BLT sandwich with avocado was yummy...as was the Red Velvet cupcake!

If I lived in Asheville I would be here every day with a cup of coffee, a breakfast something, and a newspaper, or my I pad. I would people watch, and take up space for at least one hour. That's a good review!

On a recent trip to Asheville, we stopped here for breakfast. If you're into carbs this is the place for you. Our son got their gigantic cinnamon roll and said it was out of this world good and their yogurt parfaits are great. This place is busy, noisy, funky and fun! I've never been here when there isn't a line... More

Very nice place to stop for breakfast. If you're familiar with Panera bread chain, this is the homegrown green version of that. The breakfast sandwiches were wholesome and filling and the French baguette to go was a nice treat for the road. They proudly display and sell art from Open Hearts Art Center, an organization that helps the disabled through... More

An easy lunch place. Close to the French Broad Coop and Mast General in downtown Asheville. Good like their sister café in Waynesville, NC

Looking for a quick breakfast, my wife and I stopped here on our recent visit to Asheville. This is definitely a popular spot in the downtown area. We stepped up to the counter, my wife ordered a bacon, egg and cheese biscuit, I ordered the Cocoa Almond Swirl pastry. To drink, I ordered a double latte and my wife a... More

Be sure to drop by for a breakfast biscuit. We can vouch for the tender crusty hot sausage and egg sandwich on a delectable cheese biscuit. Lucky residents who can indulge any old time. I am jealous, y'all!

We went here for breakfast when staying across the street at the Aloft hotel. The menu offers many choices for breakfast from simple pastries to breakfast sandwiches and stuffed french toast. The cheddar scallion biscuits are amazing!! I had the stuffed french toast with local jam and it was the best stuffed French toast I've ever had. My husband had... More
