“Good Food w/ a View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2011

There exists a simple little corner in a quiet mountain cove on the Warren Wilson farm-campus in Swannanoa, NC a stone patio where you can sit surrounded my massive trees overlooking the pastures and mountains, where the food is made with thought and care. It is the COWPIE CAFE'. Nothin' fancy. The day we ate there, there was local bluegrass music playing on the patio, a tree swing closeby in full use, a small bake sale a few feet away w/ food made from the local "land". When the sun sets over this etherial valley, the food tastes even better. The plate was full of food, lots of colorful vegetables and fare (all vegetarian) and much grown locally. Afterwards ask how to get to the hiking trails nearby. Cheap therapy in a beautiful setting.
