This is one of those places where you want to take visitors to show off just how good the Asheville food scene is. I took my family when they came to town just last week. Everyone loved their food, which is saying something, as my family has a couple picky eaters, and a couple who are on restricted diets for... More

I got the fried green tomatoes sandwich with Hempeh and the vegetarian sausage. The vegetarian sausage was amazing, it tasted very similar to regular sage flavored breakfast sausage. The hempeh was also very good -- I had never had it before. Theirs was similar to fried seasoned potatoes. I did not like the fried green tomato sandwich, but that was... More

ABSOLUTELY AWESOME! Found this gem while in town for a bachelor/bachelorette party weekend and they were able to accommodate our 12-person group which was clutch. But everything about the place was fantastic. Service was wonderful and our waitress Hannah was the bomb! I went with the Chicken and Waffles and it was hands down the best I have ever had.... More

Yep it's busy because it's good. I suggest you take the time to view the peak times and chose a time that's not so busy....if you don't like a wait. We stopped in on a Saturday around 3:30 for a late lunch...busy but no wait. The friendly host seated us immediately. There are dining tables both inside and out... We... More

This place has so much going for it....Don't go if you are in a hurry as seating is limited and there is always a line. But if you are willing to wait, you won't regret it. The service is awesome! From the time you give your name, you are asked to provide your phone number. This is so they can... More

When you wait, you are outside and they have water provided. Plenty of places to wait in the shade. You can check out their little garden and know where your meal is coming from. The actual restaurants that is a little congested, but it's really about the food, isn't it!? I had the featured meal with salmon and capers.. sooo... More
