    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    Thyme Lemonade, Shrimp & grits & nutty fried chicken. I prefer waitresses cold, rude but fast, so all around, perfect.

    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.
