We ate here twice while visiting Asheville. Great casual spot with home made soups, nice salads and interesting menu items. Everything is prepared above and beyond expectations. Great spot anytime , but especially convenient prior to an event at the Coliseum.

I've never been inside but we ordered a bunch of sandwiches at work one day and they were amazing! The bread was grilled and the ingredients were very flavorful. The pasta salad was okay, but everyone was raving about the sandwiches!

Yes we do carry gluten-free bread which allows you to enjoy our entire menu. We also make all of our salad dressing in house and they are all gluten free.
