Description: We proudly serve coffee from Mtn Air Roasting; it is organic, fair-trade, farm-direct, Asheville-roasted, and delicious. We use local, organic, whole milk, organic coconut milk, and organic half-and-half to complement our coffee. We make all of our syrups in-house, so we know exactly what is in them, and you can taste the difference!Our menu is the creation of Aaron Gibbs, one of the co-owners, who is a trained chef and has been cooking professionally for 10 years. Our food is simple, mouth-watering, and ridiculously cheap. We make EVERYTHING from scratch, in-house. We use local beef and chicken, and as many local and organic ingredients as possible while maintaining low prices for our customers.Come see why our regulars can't stay away for longer than a couple days! :)

We read about this place on urbanspoon and decided to stop for a late lunch while on a road trip. We chose the restaurant based on the great reviews-- and the menu. It has only a few items, which usually means that those few items are done well from our other experiences.
A few turns off the beaten path and into the combination antique store, grocery store and cafe, we discovered a wonderful gem. The people who own the place LOVE what they do and it shows. They talk about their sandwiches like they know them personally-- and create them from the ground up with lots of care.
We had the chicken salad, which was unusual AND delicious as well as the veggie panini-- YUM!!!! Interesting combo! We also tried a couple of iced mochas-- peppermint and orange... and some iced tea served in big mugs with ice.
We were lucky to get to try the bagels that they make there-- again... better than YUM!
We laughed with them about how we got the mileage award for that day-- we drove from Saint Louis, MO and they were our only stop in Asheville.
We challenge road-trippers from everywhere to take the JT mileage challenge as you visit this place on your next time through Asheville-- can you beat our 605 mile trek just for lunch? You will be glad you did!
