We go almost every Saturday morning for coffee and lox and bagel. The coffee is better than "chain" places and even has a flavor coffee of the day, plus one free refill. The place is nicely decorated with local art and mosaic tables. The staff are friendly and provide good service. A real treat.

I ordered the California spicy BLT with the homemade spinach dip. the jalapeño bacon was excellent! My sandwich was very filling. My husband order the roast beef. there was so little meat on the...

Great spot for a delicious lunch. We had a Greek salad & the spicy California BLT. Both were great. Good coffee & bakery goods too.

My boyfriend and I were looking for something a little better than Starbucks for coffee and breakfast and this was very close to our hotel. It was a great little cafe and you can tell that they make everything from scratch. Good coffee, food and service. I would go back if I returned to the same area!

I didn't find any of the negatives other reviews brought up. The sandwiches were Excellent. The chips were different and the potato salad tasty. My wife raved the espresso & she is a snob about such. The wait for the food was reasonable as everything is made per order and there were call ahead carry outs ahead f us. Friendly... More

When I read the window signs, about local grown, organic, blah, blah, I figured we were going to pay out the nose, but hopefully have something decent to eat. Boy, was I horribly wrong. The bagel I got was no better than a Lender's bagel from the grocery freezer. My son who is not picky in the least said the... More

My kiddos and I tried Mosaic for something different. We went at lunch time and for the 3 of us to eat chips, sandwiches, and drinks, I could have taken them to a sit-down restaurant. The service was less than great as it seemed that they were bothered to have customers.

I was introduced to this place by a meetup group, Asheville Welcomes Transplants, which has met there regularly on the second Saturday of the month. They have a really nice selection of breakfast sandwiches. The coffee is self-serve and very good. The bagels, which come from Joey's in H'ville, are the best. For what can be a pretty large group,... More
