Small, noisy, and charming. Another "localvore" type restaurant staffed by young, earnest folks. We loved the bright and cheerful decor and the food was very good. Our waitress was friendly and found a moment to actually visit with us, despite the noon rush. Service was slow, but the quality and preparation of the food made it worthwhile. The small tables are closely crowded together, so don't expect privacy here. There are many breakfast offerings, available all day. Many vegan and vegetarian options, too. I loved the tomato soup and grilled pimento cheese sandwich. My husband had the BBQ pork sandwich and said it was great, as were his vegetable sides. We'd love to eat our way through their menu! Will return when next in Asheville.

Wonderful start to the day with great specials and local meat.
Biscuits were delish with a spot of local jam to go with it.
Had the local mountain trout and eggs: tasty treate in downtown Asheville!
Girlfriend had sweet potato/sausage and loved it.

The food there was delicious! The servings were big and we had to have desert after dinner. It was fabulous!

The food is so good, but often the wait is too long for us. They do such a good job serving local products, which I really like.

This was definitely worth the wait. I have heard so much about this restaurant, I knew we had to visit. It was a cozy farm to table restaurant with fresh food. We tried the bbq pork sandwich which was great and some different foods like the black bean and sweet potato cakes, baked lima beans, and sauteed cabbage. Different combinations of food but everything was phenomenal. Fantastic Southern hospitality service too!
