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

The food is pretty good though a bit pricey. The potato soup USED to be excellent, now it tastes like the kind you get in a bag which is disappointing. The turkey chipotle wrap is still great. Good atmosphere and cool building.

I'm so sorry that you had an unsatisfactory experience at our restaurant. I would like to assure you all of our daily six soups are homemade and nothing out of a bag. If you would, please come by for another try and ask for me. Jeff Butler More

My wife and I have been lunching at the Veranda for years, and we've always had a fantastic meal. The daily lunch special is always delicious. Get there early because they sometimes sell out of the special! The building the Veranda is located in is a nicely restored early 1900's storefront that can be a bit noisy at times, but... More

Went to Veranda Cafe on a "get the potato soup" recommendation from a friend. Burgin got the potato soup and I got the broccoli cheese soup. Both were off the hook awesome. The service was quick and the place was packed for lunch. Loved it!

Food is great. Two couples all very happy with the meal. The Soups was the best I ever had. Mushroom soup was really good but other people had different soups and all were a hit

Did some quick shopping and a stop here for lunch. Found on Trip Advisor. Reviews of how great this place is didn't disappoint! Food was excellent, service was excellent and the dessert choice we split was made there and extremely good. Will plan to go back next time I'm in the area. We had a 15 minute wait for a... More

Hungarian mushroome soup is wonderful. The roast beef sandwich is very good. This is a very popular lunch spot and gets very crowded so expect a wait to be seated.

Met some out-of-state friends here and was embarrassed at the food we received. Menu needs to be updated. Food presentation and service can be improved.

The Veranda Restaurant has a good menu and many good choices. I had the vegetarian sandwich which was veganized by substituting humus for the mayo. Very good and pleasant place to eat.
