“Worth the wait”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

Waited an hour for a table on a Sunday at 11am, no seating inside to get out of the heat. However, once we were seated we thoughroughly enjoyed our meal. Staff was friendly, food was good, portions were large, service was quick. I'd go back again even with the hour wait.

“Never disappointed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

This place is awesome! It's somewhat quirky - but that's Asheville's charm! The food is amazing & not your every day fare. Every time we visit, we are amazed! We eat far too much & the only thing missing are cots for a nap afterwards!

Excellent food and excellent service, we waited about 45 minutes but it was totally worth it and we loved it so much we went back the next day for another meal.

“Home Made Goodness”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

A fantastically delicious way to start the day! We were going for a bike ride and this place filled us up with good, healthy, hearty food. The bowl of house made granola was crunchy, honey coated and so fresh you could taste the "love". The strawberry banana pancakes were too good for syrup!
