Back Mountain is fortunate to have a chef who can offer outstanding wine pairing dinners at The Artisan Gourmet Market. Located in this beautiful, small town close to Asheville, out-of-towners and locals should look at their calendar to make a note of these special occasions. We felt the price was very reasonable. From appetizer to dessert, each course suited our... More

We live about 30 minutes from the Artisan coffee and wine bar. This is our go to store for Grass fed beef, home made sausages, local trout, organic chicken, fresh seafood and yummy gourmet items. In addition there's a cozy café that serves coffee, breakfast and lunch items and casual dinner. The owner and staff are very knowledgeable and helpful.... More

We have visited the (vastly improved) Artisan several times, most recently for one of their excellent Thursday night dinners. Beautifully prepared and thoughtfully presented by Jimmy and Denise (the owners) and their team. An innovative and extensive selection of interesting bottles of wine are available to enjoy with your meal for just a small surcharge over the retail prices. We... More

Our family stopped here on the way out of town. The food was delicious. It is pricier than other breakfast places but the quality is worth it. Their coffee is really good. The cafe opens before the store so be sure to enter at the side entrance.

Stopped in for breakfast on our last trip to the NC mountains and were very impressed. The omelets and pastries are fantastic. We'll definitely go back the next time we are in the area.

Stopped in for a cup of coffee and was warmly greeted by the owners, Jimmy and Denise, and the staff. Jimmy gave us a sample of his newly created gourmet sausage recipe. The market has the best homemade sausages, quality meats and seafood in the area. Jimmy is always ready to help in picking out a bottle of wine to... More

This is our favorite place for coffee and sandwiches. The atmosphere is cozy, the staff is friendly and attentive, and the deli sandwiches are the best in town. It's a great place to stop in for specialty coffee and pastries. This has been one of our favorite places for the past five years. John and Patricia

We stopped into the market to pick up some things for breakfast, the market wasn't open yet, only the cafe, they welcomed us in anyway, opened up just for us and made sure we had everything we needed! We grabbed a cup of coffee from the cafe & a yummy blueberry muffin too!

Stopped in here for a couple of steaks to put on the grill. I was very impressed with the meats, fish and poultry offerings. They had a nice selection of homemade bread, cheeses, wines and prepared salads. The sandwiches on the cafe side looked perfect to share for a picnic on the mountain.

Everyone in our party of four loved the food (our group included two gluten-free eaters.) We were all hungry and the food looked so good that we had all eaten some before I remembered to take photos! The coffee-drinker loved the coffee... (and got one free refill.) The selection was casual but unique. We got an assortment of salads, sandwiches,... More
