We were looking for a breakfast place. I tapped my Around Me app and this cafe popped up. Small, local eatery...nothing fancy but great organic, local sourced food. Delicious...and the nicest staff!

I should have taken the sanitation rating as a hint, but didnt notice until I'd already placed my order for an omelette, hashbrowns, and toast. The wait staff huddled around the register gossiping and talking. The cook threw my food down on the grill with her bare hands. The potatoes were bland and cold. The omelette DESPERATELY needed salt, pepper,... More

This is my favorite breakfast place in Asheville, the parking is easy, staff are funny and friendly. The food is wonderful and the best hash browns in town!

This was one of the best breakfast I have had in a long time. There was 9 of us & it was so fast for everything we ordered. Will be back for sure.

We sampled a lot of breakfast items and everything was so yummy! Best eggs benedict I've ever had and I am a food snob. The homemade biscuits and pancakes were to die for. They even have fresh carrot juice. The wait staff were so friendly as well. Can't wait to eat here next time we are in Asheville.

Rise n Shine is a hidden little gem! The food is fresh and high quality sourced from many local farms. The service is always friendly and there's never an hour wait. We love coming here for breakfast and to grab a fresh juice or smoothie.

I gave this place a pretty good review four years ago, but something has changed here and not for the better. Just to be fair, we gave this place two tries within the last few weeks (most recently yesterday), and we came away disappointed each time. The quality of the food is just ordinary. The biscuit is pretty good (but... More

I would not go back. Cost too much for slow service and average food. You can do much better elsewhere in Asheville. Was better a couple of years ago under prior ownership.

We ate there a couple of years ago but it seems to have changed hands now. Service was slow, the food not that good. Breakfast in Asheville shouldn't cost as much as at a NY diner. Wouldn't go back.
