These donuts are to die for. It is located in a small white trailer in a parking lot near Davidson River campsite. The best ones (if they are available) are the smores donuts.

On our way out of town we stopped and got 6 mini donuts. Freshly cooked, light in texture, what a treat! (The latte was excellent also.)

Perfect location and great coffee! Grab a cup before you hit your outdoor adventure. Super fast service and it’s an outdoor vendor.

Barista with dark colored hair was super rude when I asked what was in a mocha cupcake flavored latte due to allergies. She said it was mocha and cupcake but I’ve never heard of a natural “cupcake” flavor. She rolled her eyes so I stopped...asking and ordered a plain coffee. She seemed annoyed I asked. Will take my business elsewhere.More

Super convenient, nice hot & fresh doughnuts. But too greasy. Super tasty - but greasy. Coffee was nice blend.

The doughnuts are perfect. We tried three kinds. All four of us thought the salted caramel was the best, but the cinnamon sugar and powdered sugar were also really good.

A coffee food truck! The coffee is great, not bitter. They serve coffee drinks as well as homemade donuts! 🍩

Yes, I know, it's technically not a shop but it's pretty well anchored in the Hub parking lot. When we visit someplace new like this we expect things online to differ slightly from in-person and especially when it comes to menus. The menu is limited...and largely held up to the online menu. I was really waffling on espresso drink (like a mocha) versus just a regular coffee. While I waffled, the young lady made a couple comments that it's "just the typical coffee stuff". Yes, I get it. I shouldn't have this much difficulty deciding but I don't want to be unhappy with my decision. I ended up getting a regular coffee with stevia and we got a dozen little donuts. The donuts were absolutely delicious. Hot and fresh with a bit of crunch still on them. I'd be a fatter person if I lived nearby. The mocha the girlfriend got was good as was my coffee. I think my coffee would have been better if she hadn't added creamer after I told her no creamer, only stevia but it was pretty good nonetheless. I have every intention of revisiting The Velvet Cup but I think next time I'll check my coffee before I get back to my room.More

We love Velvet Cup! The coffee is locally roasted in Black Mountain. We’ve never had a bad cup of coffee. They know how to brew a perfect cup at the correct temperature.
