Our hotel recommended a different place but we spotted the Banner Elk Cafe with a full parking lot at about 2PM so decided to give it a try. Lunch was served quickly and excellent quality (especially the biscuits). We came back for dinner two days later and were equally happy. In good weather, they have a large outdoor patio with lots of hanging flowers. Very nice.

My husband and I recently had breakfast with BEC. It was very good. We both chose the omelets. We were very happy with our choices. We hope to return in June when we are spending a week in the High Country for a much anticipated vacation. They ran our credit card twice by accident. If they correct the mistake, as the graciously stated they would, we will likely enjoy several meals with them. If not...

They have a large menu, the food is always consistently good and a great atmosphere. We always take our two giant Shiloh Shepherds there and they welcome them with open arms and immediately bring them large bowls of water. Great place friendly staff and a very nice owner.

Our waitress was great and very attentive. The BBQ and Cheese Burger tasted great. Their desserts are really good. Actually the desserts were the favorite part of our meal.

The menu is HUGE, but it's because it's not fresh and obviously all frozen...nothing you can't get at Applebee's. The service was bad, 10 minutes to get a cold chai tea, though all our server was doing was gossiping loudly. Our guests salad came out about ten minutes before our burgers came out.
