5 Excellent Breakfast Spots You Really Want to Try

5 Excellent Breakfast Spots You Really Want to Try

Doesn’t even a cup of coffee taste better when savored on vacation than when chugged on the way out the door at home? When you are at home and rushing off to work or taking the kids to school, the weekends become the one time when you get to indulge in breakfast. When you are on vacation, though, you get to indulge in a delicious start to your day every day! 

So, leave the cold and hot cereal, and the energy bars, back at home and indulge in a delicious breakfast prepared just for you the next time you are in Asheville! Whether you want a down home southern breakfast or a gourmet buffet, we have a little something to please everyone. 


When you think of the perfect breakfast, what do you envision? A beautiful, homemade country breakfast just like grandma used to cook? One replete with grits and eggs from the chickens out back, or hearty multigrain pancakes, or a delicious omelet complete with home fries and biscuits? Then the Early Girl Eatery is perfect for you. Their farm-to-table philosophy ensures that you have one of the freshest breakfasts around. Plus, the fact that they are open early means that when the kids wake you up before you really wanted to be out of bed you still have a place to go to curb your morning appetite. 


If you are looking for a place that satisfies the entire family, then you are sure to enjoy the Over Easy Cafe. They offer everything from breakfast tacos to pancakes and specialty french toast (think, Lavender French Toast), to a plethora of omelets. And that only scratches the surface!  


A lovely brunch spot is Cecilia’s Kitchen. The menu is filled with mouth-watering items pulled from both French and Latin American cuisines - a slightly unusual but very delicious mixture. Crepes galore dot the menu and are stuffed with seasonal delights such as leeks and pesto or slightly less seasonal fillings such as eggs, potatoes, and creme fraiche. The tamales are unique and a must-try, too, as are the empanadas. Besides the brick and mortar restaurant, Cecilia’s Kitchen also has a food truck that travels around the Asheville area, so you never know where you might run into them!


A charming restaurant that follows the Biltmore’s field-to-table philosophy, the Village Social serves elegant yet family friendly breakfasts. Blueberry pancakes and pecan waffles will be sure to delight both young and old, while the wild mushroom quiche will please any sophisticated palate. And of course, there is that southern favorite: biscuits and gravy. Along with other delicious comestibles on the menu, there are a plethora of caffeinated (as well as non-caffeinated) beverages offered. 


The Dining Room at the Biltmore is the perfect choice if you are looking for an elegant setting in which to enjoy a delicious and elegant breakfast buffet, smoked salmon and bagel, or dish of baked French toast. Here you can eat amidst white table cloth, multi-storied splendor with beautiful views and world class service. 

Whether you live in Asheville or this is your first time visiting, take full advantage of all of Asheville’s delicious offerings. Take a morning and just indulge in the delight of a leisurely breakfast. After all, life is much too short to not savor the simple pleasures in life.
