The food & workers were all lovely. You order at the counter & someone delivers your food & will refill coffee.

We were at Louise's on a Sunday morning- a line started to form around 9:30 for the 10:00 opening. Order at the counter and then find a table. Great country breakfast!

Breakfast was fairly standard fare, but it was prepared quickly and it was pretty tasty. It wasn't too busy the mid-week day we were there so ordering at the counter... More

A big slice of Americana. Had lunch there after reading reviews. We loved the whole experience. They make lunch sandwiches a really nice taste treat. So glad we went. No Wait! Yaaaa! Would go there twice a week if I lived there-easy. Good Job.

My husband and I discovered Louise's Kitchen when we were walking around the shopping district of Black Mountain, looking for a place to get breakfast. The location is an older Victorian-style house. Walk inside, and you'll find a counter where you place your order and fix up your own drinks. You then locate a table in one of two inside... More
