Loved the food and the casual atmosphere. Friendly and caring staff AND a little shopping. Sometimes there's a little wait but well worth it.

The atmosphere is wonderful at Veranda's and the food exceptional. A great place for the girls to gather for lunch and catch up with one another.

The Veranda is a good place for lunch--the only meal they serve. It is always busy and they are sticklers about sitting parties until everyone is present. The food is good, but the room is noisy. If it is nice, sit outside where it is quieter. Get there early.

Parking is fairly limited but worth the little stroll... More

A quick trip to Black Mountain visitor center noted the Veranda Cafe. We followed suggestions and were very pleased The She Crab soup was awesome. Just the right amount of sherry and lots of crab. I have not had better. Other sandwiches were very nice. Waite staff was pleasant outdoor seating cozy!!

We stopped by for lunch mid week, on our way from Asheville to Charlotte. The online reviews were excellent, so we thought we'd give it a try. Had the Dill Tuna Salad sandwich and the Trio Salad Plate with soup, both of which were fabulous! The staff is incredibly friendly, welcoming; the atmosphere is quiet and laid back and has... More
