We waited 20 min for 2 breakfast burritos, a sausage/egg biscuit and breakfast slider. The coffee and food was good but I wish we'd known how long it was going to take; I'd have gone elsewhere.

They had a good selection of tea and coffee. $2.50 for a large cup of tea. The wife said her alond coffee was ok. I don't drink coffee so i will trust her. The staff was friendly. I would go there again. I don't know if the wife would want to though.

I read the negative reviews before writing mine, and, while most of them were written by "newbies" (less than 20 reviews or so), I will admit that Green Sage needs to take a hard look at their service. But first, the food. We were a party of 6 for brunch, and 3 had the Breakfast Slider, and all them thought... More

The Sweet Potato Kale Quiche was amazing and the coffee is always great! We always eat at least two breakfasts at Green Sage when we are visiting Asheville and love everything!

If you love pancakes...go there. I'm not sure how they do it, but their pancakes are out of this world. We were headed to eat at one place down the road, but the wait was at least 45 minutes, so we decided to try this place. So glad we did, most of our group had either the buttermilk pancakes or...

We began with good coffee while recovering from the previous night's birthday festivities. I ordered the breakfast burrito and it was quite fresh and tasty. Mely ordered the sausage and egg biscuit that was huge and apparently really good. We will return!

We had breakfast at this great place. Very nice seating, lot of choice of breakfast items and excellent quality of food. And the very best: Their pancakes. They are to live for!

My husband grabbed breakfast to go one morning. I got an bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit, and he got the pura vida. The pura vida was the cafe's take on the Costa Rican breakfast gallo pinto which is rice, beans, and eggs. I really enjoyed my biscuit. The pura vida was good, but I thought it was a little expensive.... More

This place gives me peace and tranquility along with GREAT FOOD. Being a vegetarian, it is home away from home. The people working here are awesome as well?
