    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.

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    This cafe is a neighborhood effort - the owners own a farm and also buy locally the bread, chicken, eggs, beer, and even the artwork! Try the salads garnished with herbal flowers.

    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.

    Located in the heart of downtown and filled with friendly people, "Brian's Shrimp & Grits" is a treat worth waiting for before heading home from you college visits.

    Food = 10 | Service =8.5-9 | Hostess = 0. Don't let the salty entrance deter you, it's well worth her drama to get to a table and enjoy the fare.

    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.

    Long wait at lunch time but worth it. Have the Rosemary Peach Lemonade, even if the weather is chilly. It's divine!

    After being told of a 45 minute wait, we waited an hour and a half to be seated by the door that is constantly propped open. Not worth the wait.

    Service was excellent. Black bean burger less than par, but sweet potato fries & fried chicken strombolica (sp?) delish.

    Rude servers, limited bar, long wait. Brought a full cold beer from the bar next door and they took it from me. This is Asheville - be cool. Not impressed.

    Skip the bloody marys. Their veggies are delicious. And don't order the beet salad if you're wearing a white shirt.
