While Black Mountain boasts many delightful eateries, you won't be disappointed with any of the lunchtime offerings at this popular cafe. The Turkey Berry Brie is especially yummy. Not many choices for those with special dietary needs, but soups might be a delicious alternative to their unique sandwiches and wraps. The atmosphere and service drips with Southern warmth and charm.

First visit to Veranda Cafe. Won't be my last. I had Hungarian Mushroom soup (OMG - amazing) with a half vegetarian sandwich (fresh, delicious) and a side of Southern Caviar (marinated blackeyed pea salad). The taste combinations were spot on. Food was better than expected, service was friendly and efficient, and great price.

We were able to get seated for lunch without a wait which is unusual for this popular place. We tried the turkey and brie sandwich and the muffuletta sandwich. Both were very good, but not the best we've ever had. On a future visit, we'd probably try something different. Service was efficient and friendly and the atmosphere of the Veranda... More

We had sandwiches with a side of a black bean salad. It was tasty enough but pricey - $30 for two. I had the club; the filling was good, but it was served on plain white bread which kind of ruined the sandwich for me. For that price, they should offer some choices for the bread.

Anna, Thanks for coming in and giving us a try. Anytime your back we have seven kinds of bread and two wrap options. The sourdough is just the suggested bread for that sandwich. It works really well on pretzel bread. We will always be happy to substitute any items to suite your needs. Jeff Butler More

Loved the food and the casual atmosphere. Friendly and caring staff AND a little shopping. Sometimes there's a little wait but well worth it.

The atmosphere is wonderful at Veranda's and the food exceptional. A great place for the girls to gather for lunch and catch up with one another.

The Veranda is a good place for lunch--the only meal they serve. It is always busy and they are sticklers about sitting parties until everyone is present. The food is good, but the room is noisy. If it is nice, sit outside where it is quieter. Get there early.

A friend and I went for lunch and both ordered the grilled 4-cheese sandwich with a cup of the homemade soup. Delicious! Each got a can of local brewed beer which were very good. Servers were attentive, friendly and food was quickly delivered. Have been here several times since 2009 and the food and service are always consistently great! Our... More
