This coffee house is immensely large and has a boho look to it. There is also a back patio to the shop over looking the river, which is tranquil. The coffee is really great, they add a coffee bean to your coffee & that adds a little touch of chic to it.

The food is pretty good, its not to die for but its definitely tasteful. Some things are better than others. Overall its a really cute place to visit.

My husband and I visited this restaurant at the advice of a friend. He particularly liked the warehouse atmosphere and the coffee. I ordered the Tarzan and Jane salad and could not eat it. The dish consisted of a large load of coconut, pineapple, granola, and cranberries on mixed greens. It was not good. My husband ordered the grilled Chicken and cheese sandwich and we both thought it was fair. We sat upstairs in the two gold velvet chairs and noticed trash, a thick layer of dust, and spider webs adoring the floor as well as the tree twigs arranged in a basket. There is a great back patio with really cool furniture and a view overlooking the water. If we return to this restaurant we would probably just stick with coffee and dine on the back patio.

Great sandwiches and wraps and tea and coffee and ambiance - especially like being out on the back deck on the creek in good weather. Then I can walk a block down to the art and pottery shop for a nice visit and a great afternoon getaway.

I don't 'like places where you have to work so hard to get some coffee and a pastry. The atmosphere is cute, a step back to coffee house days but the service is not great.. the coffee is good, the salads and sandwiches are pretentious and average.

Visiting adorable Waynesville over the holidays, we were invited to Panacea for lunch. It resembles a NY city loft, open, wood, with the aroma of coffee. They grind their own and sell it. The lunch menu is varied and innovative. I had the vegetable cheese soup which was perfect for a chilly day. The half sandwich was on a fresh slice of farmhouse bread, chicken breast, aoili, lettuce, and fruit. The coffee drinks looked amazing. But, after drinking my entire mango tea, didn't have room. Wish I could have tried one. Their coffee drinks are served in big mugs, almost like soup mugs. Everyone was raving about their different mochas. Prices are a bit higher but worth it.
