Description: Start the day off right with one of our signature biscuits, which are named after the places folks love to visit in the region. Whether you want a Bearwallow Bacon, Egg and Cheese Biscuit or a savory Florence Preserve Biscuits, we have something for you every Saturday and Sunday. During lunch, enjoy a local grassfed burger, grilled sandwiches, salads and fresh baked fruit cobblers at this down-to-earth diner located at the entrance to Chimney Rock State Park. Relax outdoors on the riverside deck with a great view of Chimney Rock and the Rocky Broad River rushing by. Try one of the local craft brews or sip on a glass of wine. Check out the memorabilia of the "Rock" covering the walls for a glimpse of what life was like here over the past 100 years.

After a couple hours of hiking we stopped in for a quick meal. Service was fast and the burgers were very fulfilling!

The meals we had were large for the price we paid, and we couldn't finish them. The food tasted great! Kid-friendly menus as well. Staff were very friendly. We ate there after climbing Chimney Rock, and the place was perfect for a quick lunch!

Take the elevator up to the Cafe located at the start of the climb to Chimney Rock & beyond. Nice view, to see as you enjoy a sandwich and listen to some local musical talent. It's like an oasis in the sky!
