    The sweet potato pancake is my favorite (and what I always get), but this time I tried the beet salad and it was SO good! I had apparently never eaten goat cheese and it's now my favorite.

    A foodie nirvana. The food is as good as hyped. Order the Chicken Piccata with shrimp. You will not be disappointed. Great selection of Asheville-area craft brews. Biscuits with jam are terrific.

    We loved the fried green tomatoes with cheese grits and warm biscuits with homemade blueberry jam & Tupelo honey. Trout was perfect; veggie burger was good. Great drinks. Delish pecan pie for dessert!

    Goat cheese grits and the chopped egg and avocado sandwich. Get the beet salad with the dressing on the side, it was a little heavy. The biscuits and blueberry jelly are wonderful - ask for more.

    Vegetables and herbs are provided by the owners' own 10-acre farm. A local bakery supplies the bread, and nearby breweries deliver their best beers, including Pisgah's Organic Pale Ale. Read more

    Food and beers all delicious. I had to recommend only one thing - it’s their desserts. The banana cream pie and the pecan pie were outstanding.

    Very fun place to be. Some good beer selection. Beet salad was great, Kenny pancakes with chicken, greets with shrimp, and ribs appetizer (2 small ribs). I enjoyed the cider from the drinks.

    The Brussels sprouts are so crispy and the chicken fell off the bone. I thought the fried pickles were a bit too pepper-y for my liking, but still good nonetheless

    I had prosciutto-wrapped cod on succotash & puréed squash. Wife: pan-seared trout, corn soufflé & Brussels Sprouts she raved over. Free biscuits & all great. Her margarita ok, but smallish. honey/jam.

    Brunch was absolutely amazing! We sat at the bar, in front of Chef Dave. He made great recommendations and kept us entertained. He made the experience that much better! Loved THC!

    Shaksuka! Wow! Baked eggs overgoat cheese grits and creole sauce with avocado! I was thinking soup but "Oh My God" was that a good "southern" Turkish delight!

    I’ve been here previously once two years ago. They change their menu pretty frequently. I had the lavender limeade and mountain harvest bowl. Great service!

    Go hungry-- everything on the menu is delicious, + they bring you a biscuit with blueberry jam & honey before your meal. Save room for dessert as they've got the best pecan pie in town, hands down.

    Really good food here. Have to recommend the banana pudding! Their house Rye Ale was delicious. Just the right amount of Rye! All well worth the wait for a table.

    Good food but overpriced somewhat. The bloody Mary's were delicious. The Shakshuka was amazing. However, we did not like the meatloaf. The sides we had lacked flavor. Biscuits were to die for!

    The french toast with fried chicken, bacon, and candied pecans is a must. Literally the definition of a perfect Southern brunch. 🔥🔥

    It's hard to explain how awesome this place is. It's as if you are experiencing the entire breadth of North Carolina cuisine in one menu. You can't go wrong with any item.

    Hard to choose with so many great choices on this menu! Black bean burger and corn on the cob are delicious! Try the raspberry basil lemonade, but make sure to order a glass of water too.

    Had a great breakfast here. Bacon, eggs and grits were awesome along with the biscuit adorned with, you guessed it, honey. I would definitely suggest THC.

    Order the Kenny Special: sweet potato pancake with fried chicken and pecans on top. It was named after a waiter named Kenny. Which makes sense.

    The fried chicken strombolica was beyond awesome. It came with mashed cheesy cauliflower. (which was so good I ordered an extra side of it!). Eat at the bar- less wait & watch them cook.

    Interesting that it looked so much better than it tasted. I assume it was just an “off” day for the kitchen because we’ve heard such great things.
