While visiting Western North Carolina we decided to stop in the small town of Sylva. We were looking for a local dive but expected the food to be pretty traditional Americana. What we found instead was this incredible local eclectic restaurant. The food was ultra...More

We had to wait a little longer than normal with the eclipse weekend crowd, worth the wait. I had shrimp and grits, delicious and my wife had a burrito with smoked cheese, chicken, very yummy. One of our friends had a buffalo burger with fries....More

I've been eating here since the place open and still one of my favs. The fusion flavors range from simple to complex and all are fantastic. The food is minimally processed and crafted with care. Great if you're alone or with friends or on a...More

...and had a wonderful Saposas? A fried curry/potato (VEGAN) with peanut sauce and a side salad. So fresh and such interesting flavors. It is really nice to find food that is so flavorful when you're vegan. Cool bar with cool old timey round stools too.

The place has an odd smell, quite musty like they have water damage. That put a huge dent in my enjoyment, but my salad was rather bland as well. I appreciate their menu, with gluten free options, but they need to do better with execution....More

This place is fantastic. The atmosphere is pretty casual and funky. They have a great beer selection (and I think wine too, though we didn't have any). The biggest thing for us was all the vegetarian and vegan options and that they use local ingredients....More

Right in the downtown "historic" district. Cute little organic mexican style menu. Not your typcial "Tex-Mex" all unique items with awesome flavor. Very freindly staff too! Small seating space - so perhaps call ahead.

We ate here twice while on vacation in the mountains of NC, and both times our meals were wonderful. ... We were very impressed by the cooking and commitment to serving fresh, locally grown and organic food - and actually surprised to find such a place in a very small mountain town.
