My friends and I had lunch at the Veranda Cafe for the umpty-ump time! Today my choice was the Cuban along with a lemonade/sweet tea to drink. My buddies got the lunch special and said it was some of the best roast beef they had ever eaten. Umbrellas hanging from the wall, waitresses wearing vintage aprons, exposed brick walls, and lively conversation add to the ambience of this place. There's usually a bit of a wait, but it's not long. When in Black Mountain, consider lunch at the Veranda!
