If you want a lovely, quiet place to talk, over a beverage or light meal, in Black Mountain, this is it. I have recently been there twice, once with total of 3, other time, 2. The food is delicious and different. Each occasion, we were..."left alone." We went to the counter to order. This is definitely quieter than other Black Moutain eateries--yes, many excellent. For "real" conversation, the place to go, quiet. For the last two Thanksgivings, we have ordered our unbaked turkeys here. Excellent. The fresh offerings are exceptional. And the dry-good are tempting and interesting. Large wine choices.More

We checked out this restaurant while visiting Black Mountain. It is a small restaurant in the back of a grocer. Service was prompt. Food was okay. Probably would go again.

We were very excited to try the Artisan Gourmet but found their selection limited to mostly meats and wines, and it was rather disappointing for what it could be.

Every time we travel from Georgia, we stop to have lunch at The Artisan with our in-laws. It is a great little place that is kid friendly. Food is fresh and tasty. The atmosphere is warm as local artists display their work in and around...the shop. We will continue to stop as we travel to NC.More

We stayed in Village of Cheshire for our trip to Black Mountain. In the morning we’d walk down to the coffee bar. It’s a cozy spot with a welcoming vibe. Good coffee, good food, and good people. Indoor and outdoor seating. Our dog enjoyed hanging...out on the patio. Good music playing. The market side offers a delectable selection of treats. We recommend a visit or two or three!More

The market carries a nice selection too. Very friendly and good service. Our...food was brought to our table quickly.More

A great place in Cheshire Village just down Hwy #9 past the Ingles. A lovely cafe with fresh bites, breakfasts and lunches. Wonderful wine selection and gourmet fixing either prepared or ready to cook at home. Friendly and helpful too. Do take a look see,...even a lunch or breakfast.More

At Artisan we have been playing Mah Jongg weekly for several years. It is a welcoming environment for comaraderie, food and beverage. My favs: All soups, Balsam Gap, Chai Latte or Latte with a raw sugar. My husband and I also enjoy the Thursday wine...tastings and dinner. Jimmy is an excellent chef!More

Jimmy and his team have created a 'dining heaven' at Artisan. The sandwiches are unsurpassed -- yet affordable enough to justify treating myself once a week or so. Creative and delicious!More
