Ashville - favorite breakfast and dinner joints?

my mom is heading to Ashville for a conference and wanted me to do some "homework" and find her good eats in Ashville. Chowhound has done me right before, I'm hoping it will do the trick again.

So far, I have come across the following:
Market Place
Tupelo Honey
Southside Cafe
Sunny Point
The Over Easy

what do you think of those for breakfast or dinner?
what are some joints that should not be missed?

  1. A perfect day could start at Tupelo Honey - their sweet potato pancake with the granola is stupidly good - great coffee there also... and could end with dinner at Limones. Be sure to try their bread pudding and churros y chocolate!

      Yes--Tupelo Honey!! I'll admit, it's been probably three years since I've eaten there (I live in CA now) but I used to love it. Breakfast is delicious, but lunch and dinner are very good, too. I remember a simple but delicious grilled cheese and tomato sandwich and non-traditional but amazing mac and cheese.

    2. The sweet potato panckes (and biscuits) at Tupelo Honey are dee-vine, if that's what you're in the mood for...

      In general, though, I prefer the breakfast fare at Sunny Point or Early Girl Eatery.

        Tupelo Honey and Sunny Point are standouts for breakfast - Early Girl is not that special to me. If she is here on Sunday, Limones serves an excellent brunch and fabulous bloody mary's. Of the dinner choices you have listed I would choose Fig, Limones or Tupelo Honey (if she did not have a chance to get there for breakfast). I would also rec Rezaz (near Fig in Biltmore Village - solid Mediterranean), Mela (absolutely wonderful Indian food with a beautiful atmosphere), and Stoney Knob (a short 10-min drive from downtown - wonderful Greek and Italian options). Another local favorite is Salsas, which is much more casual and inexpensive than many of these options. Enjoy!

          Yes! The Sunday brunch at Limones is a MUST, though pricier than the others.

      2. I'm right w/ Miss Piggy on all of her rec's. Totally not familiar w/ The Over Easy. I would add Tomato/Cucina Latina on Patton Ave to the list - inexpensive and tasty El Salvadorean food for lunch and dinner. I'm a BIG fan of FIG, Stoney Knob and Limones.

            Better late than never - Corner Kitchen for any meal - Mine has always been breakfast - It's in Biltmore Village.
