This place is a little funky, but the coffee was good. I had a slice of veggie quiche warmed in the toaster oven. Decent. All in all a fine stopover on a road trip.

First place we tried out in Swannanoa. Had a great half sandwich for breakfast with coffee. Not a lot of options other than coffee and bakery.

I'm officially hooked on this place! I know I go at least 3 times per week, and they will always have exactly the right thing. Tired...coffee or maybe a fresh green juice? Hungry...the best sandwiches (and so, so affordable!) or pick one of their fancy cookies or bars. If you are lucky enough to get there when the scones are... More

This place serves great coffee, excellent pastries, breads, and salads in an atmosphere that respects intimate conversation. There are well-spaced tables, and very quiet music. The lighting is gentle. I have met there for business, friend-talks, studying on my own. I have also dashed in for a lunch to take to work or a mid-afternoon coffee to keep me going.... More

Why go to the big chains when you can support local? Moments Cafe has great coffe for good prices. They also have freshly made food that wasn't made in a factory. Also, a lot of their syrups are natural. The atmosphere is great too! It's just like a cozy living room. I'd love to come back and read on the... More

If you're in the Asheville area, keep your eyes out for the Swannanoa exit, a little east of Asheville. Just off the exit is Moments Cafe and patisserie, a small bit of heavenly food not to be missed. The owner is a caterer who has studied ingredients to perfection, and brings them to her retail shop. Whether it's sandwiches, entrees... More

We were in town for a wedding and were looking for local coffee. Moments is organic and they pay attention to preparing the coffee. Lots of good choices. The baked goods are fantastic. Ironically, the owner of Moments catered a wedding dinner, which we attended. The food was excellent and the quality reflects on what Moments offers. Hope this local... More
