Seating is limited. Go early and enjoy. Worth the wait. This is a great place for a tasty meal We went to Over Easy twice and here is a sample of what we ordered and the costs Diner One - Blackberry mimosa (great flavor), two biscuits (large) with vegetarian gravy (very flavorful), barbeque tempeh (flavorful), potatoes Diner Two - Blackberry...

Everyone is very laid back so there is no sense of real urgency. But the staff is observant where it counts. I got their strawberry ginger smoothie and it was delicious. Never considered putting fresh ginger in a smoothie. It's fun to sit at the bar and watch them make all their juices fresh. To eat we had the hash... More

We had to wait only about 10 minutes (were told 15-20) but it was well worth it. I had the special benedict with mushrooms and it was very yummy, and my dad had huevos rancheros that looked killer (he said they were). This place is no-frills, but delicious food in a hip urban environment.

We were all excited to have brunch here and try for ourselves what was the hype all about.. Looking forward for their famous Lavender French Toasts and aware of the fact that the place didn't take reservations we made sure to get there early enough so we didnt have to wait much. So we arrived at 10:00am sharp. There were... More

I met a friend here on the way out of town. We had four adults and one child in our party. Despite being busy, our wait was manageable. I thought the service was timely and polite. The food was good, and the prices were reasonable. The only negative that comes to mind is the fact that they were grilling hot... More

We ate at the Over Easy Breakfest Café on a Saturday morning, and getting there around 9:45 meant we had about a 35 minute wait. (It made me wish the café was within a spot with shops that opened earlier for browsing before you ate, but that's an aside.) Once we got in, we sat right by the window for... More

I would recommend Over Easy Cafe. The place is small and you are not real comfortable eating there. The food is very good and is reasonably priced. They have a lot of unique breakfast items and all 5 in our party thought the food was good. The service was a little slow, but not real bad. I'm sure they are... More

I'd been hearing for years about the lavender french toast. I didn't taste anything remotely lavender about it. It seemed like it was just watered down vanilla yogurt on top of french toast, along with lots of granola. I definitely should have asked for it without the granola because that added nothing to it. Bacon was way over-priced and dry.... More

I admit beforehand that I'm unfairly biased against breakfast. It's my 4th favorite meal of the day on days I accidentally swallow a stray insect while jogging. So it means something that I would give this place a positive rating. The wait at 11am was around 30 minutes, and it's not a large place. But the omelette was terrific, and... More

An authentic Asheville atmosphere with terrific food. My wife loves the granola and lavender french toast, and I love their omelets. Last time out I had theThe sunrise omelet with smoked trout - it was excellent. Service is very prompt, attentive and friendly. The room is cozy and you might have to wait, so don't come in a hurry, but... More
