Went for lunch on Saturday and enjoyed it so much we went back again on Sunday. My wife had the Spinach Salad both days. I enjoyed my taste of her salad on Saturday, I got it on Sunday. Perfect!

We wanted burgers and while this place only offered one choice, it was an excellent choice. A huge (maybe 1/2 lb?) patty with bacon and cheese, fresh tomatoes and thick-sliced dill pickles, served with sweet potato fries. Service was quick and friendly. Rather than go for dessert, we ordered cocktails - Dirty Girl Scout and a Blueberry Mojito. The mojito as good, but didn't compare to the Girl Scout. LOVED IT!

My husband and I shared an veggie pizza, a big salad and a glass of wine. All were excellent. The weather was fine so we sat outside. A poodle and his man sat next next to us - made us feel at home.

We've eaten there several times and been very happy. They have an excellent portobello mushroom sandwich. Since Asheville has so many good eateries, I can't say this is THE place to eat but if you are near there and stop in I don't think you will be disappointed.

We enjoyed custom made pizzas. Quite delicious. More of a lunch place when visiting Grove Arcade than a destination for dinner. Casual atmosphere is nothing special but it's nicely laid out to visually divide the space.
