Loved this place. Was able to order a gluten free breakfast crepe!!! It was a little dry but I was thrilled to have this option. The atmosphere is great. When you walk in, it looks like a small coffee shop but there is another seating area you can't see. Great menu with lots of options.

While vacationing we discovered this jewel of a restaurant! The cuisine and service was exceptional. We live in TouristWorld (Orlando, Florida), and have lots of restaurants with which to compare this bistro. Wish it were open Mondays and we would have eaten here again on our recent trip.

Every year my mother and sister and I take a girls' trip to Bryson City. We love the food at the Cork and Bean. This year, there was 6 of us and they were able to squeeze us in with no wait!! The burger was amazing! However, our waitress was a bit rude and cold. In the middle of taking... More

We stopped by on a busy Saturday evening at the height of "leaf peeping" season. We were warmly greeted and although we had not made a reservation, an honest attempt was made to find us a table in the dining room. When one was unavailable we were happy to be seated at the bar. Staff and other diners were congenial... More

We chose this restaurant based on the reviews and we were NOT disappointed! We had the trout cakes, chili with jalapeño cornbread, gumbo and carmel apple cobbler. Everything was outstanding and there was plenty for a whole second meal. The restaurant is very nicely decorated and we loved the very unique dining room chairs! Our waitresses was friendly and awesome!... More

Wow, was this food good. Somewhat unusual entrees but all was just out of this world. This is chef quality, not cooks doing the same menu every night. My field & foul etoufee was out of this world. So was the curry and also the tenderloin. Service was excellent and the drinks were perfectly prepared. A visit to Bryson City... More

Great place - organic nitrite free bacon, sausage, eggs etc. Flavorful food and friendly people. The breakfast crepe of spinach, bacon and smoked Gouda for me and the fried green tomato, pimento cheese bacon sprinkled eggs benedict for Diane were just wonderful examples of the excellent fare offered. Accompanied by one of the best mocha coffee I've enjoyed, made this... More

I have eaten at The Cork & Bean several times. Most recently my two companions, on my recommendation, ordered the trout entree as did I. This selection is an excellent choice if you visit Cork & Bean. I have eaten trout at quite a few days establishments in western North Carolina and this, by far, is the best best.

Thank jcosta004
