Best customer service in the area. Chili was an 8 on scale of 1-10. Kids hamburger and popcorn shrimp a 10. Pinto beans and collard greens 10. Desserts looked wonderful.

Chris our server was outstanding!

Too bad Trip Advisor rating was not 5 stars or we would have eaten there last night too.

We loved this place. There is a wide variety of foods to choose from. I loved the mountain trout and fried asparagus. My husband likes the blackened Mahi. Teresa was a great waitress! Once I got the porkchop and it was cooked pretty rare. I wouldn't recommend it. The desserts are wonderful! We enjoy the tres leches dessert.

There is hardly nowhere to eat breakfast around this area in March. We found Banner Elk Cafe- Food was good- It took a while for server to come over and a while to get food though due to it being crowded.

We have been here a few times and the food has been decent to fairly good (we keep expectations low when on vacation!) My burger was good but they forgot the mustard, the pizza was standard and the pastas were good but the portions enormous!
The coffee has been always good, which is a big plus for us but the dolce de leche cake they sell at their coffee counter is to die for. We loved it so much that we took some to-go for our car ride back home!! Whether you try the food or not, definitely try the cake :)

Food was good for the selection you had to choice from. Would recommend not setting next to the door if in the winter months.
