We stopped in here for a quick bite. We tried a vege sandwich. It came with blue corn chips and a fruit cup. Unusual combination, but tasty. The place is a bit bohemian but it's cool. They have a great selection of beer, my husband says. We'll go back. You should try it.

A wonderful dog friendly place for breakfast or lunch. Ambiance is excellent with picnic tables over looking the stream. Makes a trip to Frog Level worthwhile.

Comfortable setting for coffee and sandwiches. We have enjoyed it on several visits to Waynesville. I appreciate the free Wi-Fi, and when the weather is nice, the outside seating.

If your in Waynesville,or in the surrounding area, you should definitely visit Panacea. I visited here a few times during my vacation. I enjoyed all the coffee and food that I tried. They also offer free wifi. The venue is also pretty amazing. It's a large area inside, but if you go outside, there is an awesome seating area that... More

Not only is the coffee perfect, but I highly recommend the rosemary tomato bacon quiche. Staff is friendly and courteous. Atmosphere is so relaxing and comfortable. Excellent way to start the day!

I had an iced Carmel latte with their coconut lime cupcake. Cupcake was ok, tasted like a box cake, but it was moist and light. The coffee was rich and flavorful and the scenery was beautiful!

I enjoyed a very nice cappuccino and a light breakfast at this coffeehouse. I also enjoyed the music and the casual atmosphere. I would return.

Happy it's here and while the food price is slightly high it does host tasty combinations. I get it, if you can then you will and folks will pay if they want it. The blandish staff come off as a bit disgruntled and disinterested, I was young once so again I get it. In contrast I always gave service with... More

This is a wonderful find in the historic district of Waynesville, NC. Located in an old warehouse built circa 1920, Panacea welcomes you with the unmistakable aroma of deep roasted coffee. No, not the aroma of brewed coffee or that of an espresso drink being poured, but the smell of a roastery that has the rich smell of roasted coffee... More
