Breakfast choices were limited. Veggie quiche was tasty but didn't have much, if any, spinach as advertised. Came with a plentiful bowl of fruit. Coffee was just right. I would have given this place a higher rating if they had more of a variety of...More

Panacea was one reason we returned to Waynesville. Their coffee is great and staff friendly. It was nice sitting outside by the water sipping our hot coffee. Great place to unwind.

If the weathr is nice, sit out by the creek. If not, the interior has lots of character. Good coffee, good food, nice people. Good place for solos, couples, and you'll see many small business/client meetings.

Panacea is big, airy, sort of industrial but cosy too. Great selection of coffees, teas and snacks/food. Sitting out in the back next to the river was a treat.

I LOVE THIS PLACE. The staff is great. Food even better. Coffee out of this world. The back patio facing the creek is a little slice of heaven. Very family friendly. I'll be back weekly

Loved my chai latte and coffee here. They showcase local artists each month, have an awesome outdoor area by the river, and a cozy-yet-industrial vibe inside. Smells amazing, too, since they roast the beans right out in the open for everyone to enjoy!
