As a pair of Australians road tripping from D.C. to Houston, good coffee is incredibly hard to find. This place is fantastic. Very friendly service and enthusiastic about what they're doing. Highly recommended!!

Conveniently located near the West Asheville Public Library, Waking Life is a comfortable place to stop for coffee or tea. It has a mellow atmosphere and though small it has comfortable seating inside and out.

Really nice coffee shop. They have a very limited food menu, just a few types of baked goods, but what they have is good. Light (not too bright) atmosphere which is especially nice on a rainy day. Wifi with good workspaces. Friendly place.

This is the best place for coffee in town! They use premium ingredients and the single pour method, which equals absolute perfection! They're also very environmentally conscious and offer free wifi. Their teas are outstanding too!
