Just the right amount to fill you up and give you the energy you need to start your day.  Also available with Hickory Nut Gap sausage or thick-cut all-natural bacon.

Soup of the Day: 

Two soups are available by 11:30 and stay out til 9pm.


Choose from a creative selection of specialty vegetarian and meat sandwiches from our Grab and Go Case any time – or call/pop in between 12 and 2 for a freshly made sandwich.

All meat sandwiches are made with all-natural Dietz and Watson and Applegate meats and cheeses. We use locally-made Smiling Hara tempeh.  Our tempeh and tofu are both organic.  We use local organic breads, all-natural wraps, house-made non-dairy spreads, organic greens, and – as much as possible – organic veggies. All are served with a pickle, and can be grilled to order or served cold.   Here’s just a sampling of our sandwiches…

  • Tempeh so Asheville! Grilled tempeh layered with avocado, roasted red peppers, banana pepper rings & red onions, topped with vegan pesto dressing, dill havarti cheese or house-made sunflower cheese spread and fresh leaf lettuce – made on your choice of bread.  Then grilled on the panini press.
