Vegan Comfy Food

Perfect place for lunch or dinner. You must try their flight of water's, unique! Vegan food made to be true comfort food. Great flavors, loved their homemade slaw.

I ate here during my last visit to Ashevill nearly three years ago and ever since I was looking forward to returning. I was not disappointed. This time we sat at the bar. The wine was yummy. We ordered a lot of little things. Make sure you have the mashed potatoes with gravy or the cornbread and kale with the... More

Rosetta's kitchen is amazing! I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that enjoys good food! As a vegetarian I am always excited to find a vegetarian/vegan restaurant and Rosetta's did not disappoint. My carnivorous boyfriend even enjoyed the restaurant so much that we visited Rosetta's twice during our 2 day stay in Asheville. They even allowed us to let our... More

We stopped in for dinner on a Thursday night. The food was really great, a vegetarians heaven! I was so overwhelmed with all the good options! They also had a great beer selection. And I believe they also own the bar below that has cocktails. We ordered the Buddha bowl and peanut butter tofu, both were excellent! The service was... More

Our meals lacked flavour. Nonetheless it was very reasonably priced and the waitress was good. Furthermore, I like the fact that this establishment provides food on a sliding scale for financially disadvantaged people.

Rosetta's was completely empty at peak lunchtime which made us leary but went ahead against better judgement-menu is all vegetarian but with odd & mostly unappetizing combinations of ingredients. Decided to go safe with a grilled cheese on whole wheat which was unimpressive to say the least-presliced store loaf bread with a slice of bland cheese in between. The side... More

Vegetarian and vegan - huge plates of healthy food at a great price, Two nice dining rooms with lots of character - try for a seat overlooking Lexington Ave. Desserts are fabulous! And don't foget to "Pay it forward". Leave a few dollars to treat future travelers to a meal.

The Buchi Bar is okay, but it's not what I wanted. Rosetta's is one of those places in Asheville that is an old standby. I've been going there for years. It was the kind of place you could always count on at the end of the night for decent late night grub. No longer! I went by at 11 pm... More

Delicious vegetarian food. Much more casual than Laughing Seed Cafe. Funky and fun. Can people watch over Lexington Street. Had the Family Favorite (peanut butter tofu with smashed potatoes, homemade gravy and steamed kale). Yummy!

You can't get more Asheville than Rosetta's. No muss no fuss with good eats and vegan. Is it the best food or dining experience ever? No, but you sure can do a lot worse! If vegan isn't your thing there are still a few things worth eating. I recommend the taters. Good folks doing good things.
