It was FREEZING cold and windy when we rolled up late Monday morning, expecting it to be a slow day. Wrong. Super-busy. I guess it's always super-busy. The poor reservation-taker person was outside taking names. Unfortunately there is nowhere to wait inside. Major downer when you're freezing, so we waited in the car, and with crabby in-laws that was almost... More

Well worth the wait. For breakfast/brunch, try to arrive an hour before you're really hungry. Energetic, friendly staff! Outstanding variety, large portions, wonderful farm-to-table selection, vegetarian options, tasty beverages. Then there's the bacon. We don't know how the bacon is created, but we love the bacon. It's magical candy bacon. We could eat a pound of the bacon. Bacon, bacon,... More

Loved this place. Arrive early. Can wait in the garden with hot coffee when there's a line. A little off the beaten track from downtown Asheville. Crowded. No Irish coffee available on Sunday.

We went on a week night and I hate breakfast while my husband enjoyed the meatloaf. The bacon was perfect and that ginormous biscuit was on fleek! Their house made jam was delish as well. Great little place. Just FYI- the parking lot is tiny BUT the food more than makes up for that!!

Our extended families met up in Asheville and snagged a huge table at Sunny Point Cafe on a freezing cold day...but...inside was nice and warm and the service should be envied by many 5 star restaurants. Our waiter was simply awesome! Drinks never got below half and the food was served quick and all orders (even special ones) were correct... More

Hubby and I met friends at a halfway point between us, and the Sunny Point Cafe came highly recommended. All four of us ordered the shrimp and grits on the word of another friend. I do believe with the first bite, 8 pairs of eyes rolled back into 4 heads! OMG. I may never order anyone else's shrimp and grits.... More

The Sunny Point Cafe came as a recommendation and we were not disappointed! We got there around 11 am and the restaurant was full with a very diverse and fun group of people. We were seated quickly. The food, that was delivered to other tables looked great and we had a hard time deciding on what to order. We decided... More

Wow!! My wife is a gourmet cook who has basically ruined me for most restaurant eating. So when the two of us came away from this place saying, "That was the BEST restaurant breakfast we can ever remember!" -- it holds gravity in our household. I had the Savory French Toast with house-made bread dipped in buttermilk. It was served... More

We chose to go here for breakfast because of the great reviews but we were very unimpressed by our meal. The service was extremely slow, it took 15 minutes just for them to come take our order. We had their orange juice and it was very good, extremely fresh! Once we finally got our food it was okay. We both... More
