Met a business associate just before lunch. Great casual atmosphere with coffee and light lunch or snacks.

My husband and I went here for lunch. Place was hopping lots of customers which told us it was good even before we ordered. We got a bowl of chili and meatball sandwich. Both were very good. Their Iced tea was really good. Staff were extremely friendly, especially manager Kelsey. Would definitely recommend.

I can't drive by Edna's without stopping in for a cup of coffee. It's always delicious & fresh and the people that work there are friendly & helpful.

Edna's has wonderful coffee and a limited amount of sweets to accompany it but the green tea there is exceptional. They also serve a limited lunch menu and their soup choices look great

When we have company visiting from out of town we always take them here on their last morning. A great way to send them off on their trip home with great memories 9f Asheville.

Pretty good coffee and lattes in N AVL, but warning...slowest drive-thru in all of AVL by far. I never expect something to be fast food-like when it comes to good coffee, but my goodness do they need someone to come help them with them drive-thru operation. It's had a cooler name in Mountain Java before changing to Edna's, but the... More

The Americano was good, but the espresso was made from dark roast or over done beans. Had a sandwich and a salad. Ham and Swiss had a sweet sauce on it which ruined it for me. The Cesar salad had chicken that was bland. Not terrible, but there are better coffee places in Asheville.

We visited Edna’s of Asheville for Breakfast last week and it was good but service was slow and the staff seemed disorganized and overwhelmed with what they were assigned to do: that is two people to take orders, act as cashier, and cook and sometimes serve. We had a breakfast Burrito and a bagel with cream cheese. The food was... More

This is a great coffee shop for travelers and locals alike. It is pugged themed (Edna is a pug) and they offer pug merchandise. They specialize in local coffee and food (sandwiches, wraps, soups and salads.

Was visiting family in North Asheville, 4th of July weekend, and decided to meet one of my 1980's UNCA chums for coffee. On past trips, we had met at Edna's for coffee. This time, the atmosphere was deathly quiet. Because of this, we kept our voices low as we caught up on our grown children. After about an hour, we... More
