I ate at Mayfel's for the first tome today and I will definitely be back to try more things on the menu. I had the Bacon and Goat Cheese Omelet. It was fluffy and delicious. The omelet was stuffed with the best goat cheese I have ever tasted and the bacon was excellent. The omelet was also full of spinach... More

We stopped here for a late breakfast and we weren't disappointed. I had the scrambled eggs with ham. The biscuit was huge, the potatoes were spicy and the eggs were fluffy and loaded with mushrooms, spinach, and peppers. The coffee was good and the bloody Mary was perfect.

Mayfel's is one of our favorite Asheville restaurants. The atmosphere is cozy, and the food is consistently delicious! When the weather is good, try to sit in the patio out back.

First time in a long time that I have been to Mayfel's. They have a good mix of Southern classics and Cajun dishes. They have a special daily brunch menu as well. I opted for the crab burger with vinegar slaw on the side. The crab burger was substantial and tasty. I'll be back again soon!

We had a great dinner here. The seafood gumbo was spicy and full of seafood, just what we wanted on a cold day. The crab cakes were really good and fresh, the remoulade amazing, and the jambalaya just the way it should be. The corn mache choux was the only thing I wouldn't order again. The service was great and... More

A really nice brunch venue. During my visit, they had a build your own bloody mary bar....Brilliant! The establishment has a funcky vibe - relaxed. Try any of the eggs bededict - I had one of their specials with a spicy hollindaise sauce - spot on. The staff was super friendly - which I found refreshing. Will definitely visit again.

We have eaten at Tupelo Honey every time we were in Asheville over the past years. This time, we waited too long and were faced with a 1.5+ wait time so we stopped at Mayfel's. Their wait was only 30 minutes. What a treat. A vintage and whimsically decorated. The food was great and the service was quite good. On... More

My wife and I enjoyed breakfast here on New Year's Morning and it was amazing. I enjoyed a crawfish omelet, potatoes and biscuit while my wife went with the gumbo. Service and food was some of the best I have ever experienced.

We were spending a few days in Asheville for the first time. We walked through the old downtown on our first night and patrons leaving Mayfel's recommended it. We returned the following evening to try it and we're not disappointed. Po-boys and gumbo were outstanding. The trout dip is addictive. As frequent travelers to New Orleans, we appreciate good Cajun... More
