Love the homemade bagels, pastries, breakfast sandwiches and coffee. Always go for breakfast when we are in Asheville.

The sticky bun fed 3 of us to go with wonderful coffee. The hardest thing is making a choice of mouth watering pastries and meals. Delish!

Either for a quick breakfast or just to go, we rarely leave Asheville without having one of their scones. Flavors vary, but we like them all. Good coffee makes the breakfast complete. Everything in their showcases is appealing. We try to exercise restraint!

My husband had a HUGE breakfast sandwich that he said was delicious. I had a gluten free quiche (made with a potato crust). It was delicious! Coffee was hot and strong.

Unless you can afford the calories don't subject yourself to the temptation----wonderful treats that appeal to the eye and taste as good as they look.

We stopped by for breakfast and coffee on New Years Day. There was quite a crowd which is usually a good sign. My dark roast coffee was perfectly brewed and my husbands frappe was lovely. We had the farmhouse and hawaian breakfast sandwich and both were full of flavor and very tasty. We also had a slice of the cream... More

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!
