My friend, Debbie, and I looked for a restaurant on our way to Tennessee. We stopped here and had a great lunch!They offer a very varied menu for breakfast and fewer lunch choices that were very good. Debbie had a bagel with veggies and dressing on it and thought it was excellent. Some items I would not have expected on... More

Slipped in for breakfast this morning with a buddy and found this little place wonderful for context and food. REally enjoyed the staff and setting. Almost didn't report on it because it seems like a great locals place and didn't want to spoil it.

We ate breakfast at Louise's Kitchen on the Friday after Thanksgiving. The place was very busy and we only waited about 10 minutes for a table. Make sure to order your food when you arrive because you can't sit down until you have a ticket. Eat the grit cakes! They are awesome.

Stopped in for a breakfast and enjoyed it. Ordered the big boy burrito. Was very good. Cool little vibe to the place. It's an old converted house thus very compartmentalized dinning rooms. You order at the front and sit where you like. Cool old soul music was playing... Enjoyed it.

This is righteous breakfast food! My partner had the French Toast and I had the Big Boy Burrito. Wow! That Burrito was dynamite! It was so flavorful, chock full of eggs, potatoes, sausage, diced peppers. I typically spice up a dish like this, no need this time. It was perfectly flavored, with the perfect size for a breakfast meal at... More

This was one of three restaurants recommended by the Black Mt. visitor center, when I asked, "Where do the locals go for breakfast?" I was looking for a place with good regional food and ambiance. Louise's filled the bill to a tee! A big, old Victorian with the restaurant occupying the ground floor, and surrounding porch for sheltered, outdoor seating.... More

What is not to love about Louise's? The staff here welcomes you like you're coming into their home, the ambiance is cozy, old-timey and the food really tasty. The portions are plentiful and the value spot-on. This is a happy place all the way around.

We had come up to Black Mountain to check out a coffee place. We needed lunch and this was a place we had not tried. Good variety of sandwiches and a few salads. The drinks are in mason jars, which is cute. We split a sandwich with an extra side. It was tasty and fairly priced. We would eat here... More
