World coffee has locally ground coffees that are eco-friendly and some local bakery goodies. There's a skybar on the roof in the evening if you'd like something stronger than coffee. The balcony is actually heated. Great location downtown.

We stopped in as we were walking around Asheville. They had a good dark roast coffee and we shared an apple pastry. The service was good and we enjoyed the venue.

I needed a place in Asheville to meet up with my cousin. Both of us came from out of town. I chose this coffee shop for the location and the good reviews on Trip Advisor.

We popped in here on a hot day walking around window shopping. We ordered an iced chai and an iced mocha (chocolate milk for the toddler), and the staff was very quick and friendly. They made an effort to engage with the kids, which is rare nowadays, but much appreciated. Would gladly return!

A wanna-be in the Asheville pastry / dessert world. Cozy little back rooms and nice tables out front to catch the local street scene. Coffee is good.

Was looking for a special latte vs. your typical Starbucks and found it here. I will be back next time I'm in town.

Really good latte with tiramisou with fresh shot of espresso poured over it. Great place to hang out inside and out. Local favorite.

I liked the coffee and sitting in the window so we could watch the people going by. Also, their pastries are good!
