We first visited the Veranda Café at least 15 years ago and they 'had us as loyal customers at Hello". The décor of very high ceilings promoting an airy open atmosphere, the red brick walls decorated with colorful umbrellas, and nostalgic hardwood floors will be reminiscent to baby boomers and older visitors of your childhood adventures to a special downtown trip, if you had behaved all week.
The menu features many tasty offerings updated with 'specials of the day', always at least a half dozen delicious hearty soups daily, abundant refreshing salads, a wide selection of satisfying sandwiches available grilled, deli style, or on wraps. Croissants, cranberry nut bread, marble rye, multigrain , ciabatta, and the always popular grilled pretzel roll are some of the choices for your culinary sandwich experience. A half sandwich and cup of one of the many delightful simmering soups is always an option for lighter fare.
My wife often enjoys the 'Kay's Special Chicken Salad and a side of 'southern caviar (marinated black-eyed pea salad) or Tossed Greek Salad topped with an ample portion of Oven-roasted chicken, while I often elect the Greek Chicken Gyro Wrap and always a 'bowl' of one of the numerous soups available every day.
Regardless of your palate's sensory pleasure zones there is a dining experience awaiting guaranteed to 'tickle your innards'! Daily magnificent bakery items will tantalize your buds and put the exclamation point on any lunch!!
My chosen title was true in that on our frequent visits to Black Mountain, NC we would always plan on driving from the Charlotte, NC Airport to ensure satisfying our Veranda craving on Friday or Saturday between 11am-3pm, as they are closed on Sundays and lunch only. We relocated from Florida to Black Mountain in 2015 and can now travel through all the tantalizing menu items at our leisure. Try it out and the family owners since 1996, Jeff and Palette, will 'treat you even better than family!! Relax, savor, enjoy!
PS: There is a pet friendly outdoor deck for your special furry friend to accompany you.
