Brunch in Asheville?

We just moved to Asheville, NC from New Orleans and we really miss our NOLA-style brunches. Anyone know of a great brunch spot in the area?
There are several worthy options, but my own personal favorite is Sunny Pointe in West Asheville. They have the best huevos rancheros I've had--though I should add that I've never been to Mexico...or NEW Mexico. (Still, they're pretty darn great.)
I agree that Sunny Point is excellent - I wish we got there more often but my husband hates the wait (usually at least half an hour). Laughing Seed is vegetarian and has a really good Sunday brunch (love their huevos rancheros too) and a unique Bloody Mary (fresh basil blended in to the tomato juice). Curras Dom in North Asheville has a tasty brunch and EXCELLENT adult beverages like screwdrivers with fresh squeezed OJ and kickass margaritas and bloodys. Stoney Knob also has a great expanded brunch menu (love their breakfast burrito), plus a covered/heated patio to boot. I'd think their menu would be the most NOLA-ish...they have crabcakes eggs benedict, stuffed french toast and the like.
