Given how busy lunch places in Black Mountain can be during tourist season, the Artisan is a delightful change of pace. Not crowded; quiet; great food; yet not out of the way. I had the pulled pork BBQ sandwich on artisan bread. It was excellent.More

This is the soul of Black Mountain. Best coffee, inviting, local, colorful menu. A home away from home... Board games, art, bigscreen TV...not too big & in a park-like setting. Works perfectly for a quiet early morning coffee or family dining.

The breakfast and lunch menus have both been updated -- and are amazing. What a change from the "old" Artisan. The service has also improved dramatically. Artisan is a diamond in this little jewel of a town.
