We read wonderful things on one of the “bring your pooch” web sites about The Veranda Café. Our first trip to Black Mountain and we had the family pooch with us. They offer a wonderful outside deck for those who want to bring their fur babies. As we sat on the bench out front waiting to be seated we could not help but hear the oohs and aahs from patrons as they came out. A retired couple came out and while petting our pooch commented that they drive 39 miles to come to The Veranda to eat! Now let’s get down to business. From the hostess to the cashier and every employee in between we were treated wonderfully. Recommend the peach-ginger tea, so refreshing! We ordered the Ruben (amazing pastrami) and the Quiche (light and very flavorful) both were excellent! The sides were so fresh, pea salad and potato salad. We knew we had to try dessert. We normally share however we opted to get a dessert each. I’m so glad we did! The apple caramel and the strawberry rhubarb pie both with ice cream were like Grandma made. You know that flaky perfect homemade crust….yeah….that. We can’t wait to go back and try other things on the menu!

Stopped in a second time for lunch at the Veranda. I was seated quickly and the food was presented as ordered in a short time. The waitress was pleasant and the atmosphere warm. The lemon basil mayonnaise on my raw veggie sandwich was especially good. I will return next time I am in the area.

We were visiting from out of town and stopped in at The Veranda, the food was good, the waitresses were very accommodating and attentive. But while we were there we witnessed one of the owners, I assumed she was, yell at one of the servers who only seemed to be doing her job. This behavior was extremely unprofessional and really turned us off from wanting to come back.

Three for lunch. We were passing through Black Mountain and picked the Veranda Cafe by chance as it was close to where we managed to find a parking spot. We were not disappointed in our choice! The specials included a meatloaf lunch with garlic mash and green bean casserole. All of it was yummy and just the right portion size. Coffee flowed freely which made our one friend very happy. The two soup and half sandwich orders were also reported as very good. Ambience is pleasant and the cafe was clearly a popular lunch spot. Tables are close together but hey everyone needs to earn a living and it wasn't a hindrance to a pleasant lunch experience.
