We ate here twice for breakfast over a four day stay in Black Mountain. Staff was friendly and helpful and the food was perfectly cooked to order.

I always enjoy coming here for a great breakfast with lots of amazing local produce. As a vegetarian I love to have such great options and delicious flavor! The pesto cream cheese is awesome!

Casual, quirky, and fun atmosphere with great food (the grit cakes were fantastic) and friendly staff. Would be a good place for families with kids.

Historic red, white and blue house (not at all gaudy) that is easily and quickly accessed from I-40. Lunch offerings seem to be all sandwiches, but I believe you can also get breakfast any time because when we first got to the counter, breakfast items...More
