Three days in Asheville

I've looked through the old threads, but nothing seems to have been updated in the past few months.

Will be there Sun-Tues in late June, staying downtown. I need bakery/coffee and grown up lunch recs especially. I've done Tupelo, Early Girl, Sunnypoint.
Dinner plans for Rhubarb and pizza at All Souls. Been to Table and Curate.

Thanks in advance!

  1. Dough for bakery/coffee. Egg toast and cronuts are excellent.

    Posana for brunch or lunch. Wicked Weed for outdoor dining, great beers and good food. Over Easy is fantastic for brunch/lunch. White Duck Taco downtown or in River Arts District. You may enjoy Chestnut for lunch as well.

    I prefer Pizza Pura to All Souls personally. They are close to each other. Maybe try both!

    There are about 3 more recent threads on Avl showing up now on this page - those would be worth a scroll thru for other ideas too.

      Haven't done Chesnut yet, but I'll second all of Miss Piggy's other recs. You can also sit outside and have a decent burger at Universal Joint in W. Asheville. (5 mins. by cab or car.)

    2. We enjoyed Storm Rhum Bar when we were there a few years ago, opens at 4pm, so would have to be a late lunch. Live in Miami Beach but rented a downtown loft for a month Aug-Sep, so following this thread for ideas.

        Ate at Storm for Mother's Day. Nice piece of fish, great cocktails. The burger my wife had was a little dry, though--but she always orders "well done." :-(
