The Asheville area's food prowess isn't just limited to the city limits. The quaint town of Black Mountain has a wide variety of dining options and is just 20 minutes or so east of downtown Asheville.
Here are some Black Mountain dining options we think you'll enjoy.
Black Mountain Breakfast & Brunch
Louise's is a local favorite for breakfast, brunch, and lunch. Come sit on their wrap-around porch or dine inside and enjoy some amazing french toast or a Big Boy Burrito. Louise's serves local and organic ingredients sourced from area farmers and merchants.
Blue Ridge Biscuit Company is open for breakfast, brunch, and lunch but their massive biscuits served with creative toppings may leave you full for the rest of the day.
Foothills started out as a great burger joint (and a lot of other really great meat-centered dishes), but now they also serve a stellar breakfast with options like the Butcher's Breakfast Platter, breakfast poutine, biscuits & gravy, and biscuit sandwiches like the egg & avocado biscuit or the smokehouse biscuit.
Four Sisters Bakery is located in a cozy alcove of Black Mountain. They serve a variety of delicious baked goods, cinnamon rolls, biscuits and gravy, chocolate or ham and cheddar filled croissants, scones and they also cook up a tasty gluten-free quiche.
From the makers of Asheville's "grown-up" grilled cheese sandwiches (Melt Your Heart food truck), Open Oven Bakery is an ideal spot to grab breakfast or brunch, or lunch. We are fans of their specialty breakfast sandwiches The Standard, and The Morning Melt, and rumor has it, the biscuits and gravy is some of the best in town. Open Oven also offers an assortment of omelettes, waffles for breakfast and some of their prized grilled cheeses, soups, and burgers for lunch. They are conveniently open 7 days a week from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
