Planning road trip in October in Blowing Rock, Boone area, and looking for charming places to eat and sip coffee other than roadside diners.

  1. Coffee shops may be a bit tough...Local Lion, which is a doughnut shop with good coffee is in Boone. Conrads is in Boone. Bald Guy Brew is a unique spot in Boone as well. I am not as familiar with Blowing Rock as far as coffee. River Dog is in Linville.

    Restaurants in the area (the Bs, which includes Banner Elk/Linville):


    Artisanal , Banner Elk
    The Eseeola Lodge, Linville
    Vidalia, Boone
    Rowlands, Westglow Spa, Blowing Rock
    Knife & Fork, Spruce Pine (a haul but worth the drive)
    Bistro Roca, BR

    Good, casual..maybe less "charming":

    Coyote Kitchen, Boone (more casual)
    Painted Fish, BE
    Mint (Indian), Boone
    Sorrentos, BE
    Storie Street Grill, BR
    Twigs, BR

    Have fun
