If you want to eat where the locals like to go Becca's is your spot. It has great food, and wonderful, creative breads and pastries. I've never heard anything but raves about their sandwiches.

Thank you for the nice review, I'm glad you liked our shop. I admit my bias, as I'm pals with the beekeeper, but our honey is WONDERFUL! More

Definitely the best coffee in North Carolina. I love living here, but most restaurants both franchise and privately owned serve coffee that looks like water that has been standing too long in an iron pipe for way too long.with about as much flavor. Becka's Backwoods Bean Coffee serves delicious full-bodied coffee that would be the envy of any high-priced, big-city... More

Took my granddaughter here for lunch. When we were finally waited on, the lady was impatient and rude but very friendly to a gentleman sitting at the bar. Will not go back. I recommend Fox's Cones and Coffee in Galax, Vs.

Wish I could give 0 stars. Cashier was grumpy, very unfriendly. Coffee was ok. And they were out of gluten free cookies. Overall the waiting staff was very rude.

Very eclectic atmosphere and unique culinary creations. Not your typical small town home cooking--more like Asheville has come to Sparta!

...French pressed coffee and the oatmeal porridge- just what I needed to start a day of hiking! Very reasonable! Sweets looked amazing, but I had to pass😢

Nothing to complain about but nothing spectacular either. The soup was a little watery, the quiche was ok, too much egg made it more like a cold omelette. The side salad was also so so. We would probably not come back

They only serve dinner on Friday nights, and it is excellent. Farm to table local fare. My husband had the chicken (1/2 chicken!) with roasted potatoes and I had mahi mahi with corn relish. Both entrees were delicious!

Just stopped by for an afternoon pick-me up and enjoyed a most delicious home-made cream cheese pound cake with a delightful chai tea. My friend enjoyed a coffee as we split the generous pound cake slice.It was a wonderful treat!We had a difficult time deciding which dessert to try since they were all home made and looked so delicious.
