Aromatic coffee and groovy atmosphere

I spent a cold Saturday morning drinking a wonderful and aromatic cafe latte and enjoying a very groovy atmosphere. Next time I need to try all the incredible muffins and scones.

Love their veggie burgers, coffee and deserts. A nice to visit, for breakfast, lunch or dinner or just at any time for coffee and a muffin. Nice atmosphere, all ages...very typical of Asheville

I was so lucky to find Edna's on a recent trip to Ashville. The first day, one of many, both Tom and Mike were there, as well as their adorable dog Edna. I fell in love with them immediately. This is a special place, not just another coffee shop. The coffee was outstanding. So many food options, warm environment, lovely... More

I find myself on Merrimon again plagued with the convenience of a drive through that always disappoints. The coffee is inconsistent the prices fluctuate day to day and the service is horribly slow. I wish we could just get a good drive through in North Asheville.

Edna's is a mile or so from downtown and has a more relaxed and comfy atmosphere than the downtown coffee bars. Nothing against the java chains, but this place is like being invited to your BFF's house for coffee. I always feel I should be wearing my terrycloth robe and slippers and maybe holding a teddy bear. Whatever you order... More

Everything that a coffee shop needs: great coffee (with free refills of brewed coffee) and other beverages, yummy food - including a nice selection of vegetarian options plus the staff's willingness to modify an entree so that it becomes vegetarian, a strong & robust WiFi connection, friendly staff, clean dining areas & bathrooms plus sufficient parking in front & in...

Whenever I'm in Asheville Edna's is a must. Besides the outstanding and unique coffee blends and delicious food the shop just has a great vibe. It's hard to explain but I always feel at home whenever I'm there and feel like I'm a part of Asheville. Tom and Michael, the owners, have found the unique ability to incorporate responsible business... More

Cozy, relaxing atmosphere - encouraged us to linger over a good breakfast and delicious coffee! The decor is adorable - anything pug- and dog-friendly ranks high on our list! Would surely stop in again when in the area. A little warmer and we'd have been out enjoying the patio seating for sure!

Edna's is a local hangout in N. Asheville. The coffees are varied and all that I've tried have been delicious, with my most current choice the pumpkin spice coffee. Mocha is not far behind. I shared a locally baked pumpkin pecan scone, which paired perfectly with my coffee. I didn't feel pressured to 'eat and leave' as most were lingering... More
