I've not eaten at this place as often as I should. The food is fresh and tasty. Good meats (were Boar's Head at the time), fresh bread. Excellent omlettes! Fresh coffee...yum! Recently started catering the Tuesday Trivia at Catawba Brewing!

Beautiful fresh food made there on site. Breakfast is the bomb. Loaded biscuits and gravy. To die for. You won’t get same food nowhere else. If you’re big coffee lover that the place. Very electric setting always full. Totally recommend

If the weather is nice, sit outside and enjoy it while you dine. We had breakfast and it was very substantial and delicious. They serve Dynamite Coffee from Black Mountain and it is DYNO-MITE! Will definitely return.
