I personally really enjoyed Tupelo Honey. I manage a Restaurant in Black Mountain (about 12 minutes east of Asheville). I can tell you this much, it's hard to find better restaurants anywhere than what you will find in WNC...and yes I am extremely biased because it's true. I grew up in South Carolina and ran Restaurants in Charleston and maybe 2 of them can hold their own with what would be considered an average eatery here. Of course everyone has different tastes, so my opinion is just that, but if you are here for a week then you need to try as many different places as your budget will allow. If you have an interest in an early breakfast come see me @ "The Morning Glory Cafe"...but I also recommend the fried Chicken sandwich at Tupelo Honey...it is awesome.

Posana Cafe gets my vote. We ate there pretty much every day of our trip, either for breakfast , lunch or dinner. Mouthfuls of heaven!!! You would never know they were all gluten free. Their G-free breads and deserts are amazing. What a treat for those who otherwise have to make such dishes at home from scratch or go without. We felt so spoiled. Best of all their food is all organic and locally sourced.

I will also recommend Tupelo Honey - they have both a South Asheville location and a downtown Asheville location. I've only eaten at the south location since we live very nearby and I've heard downtown can sometimes be quite a wait - depending on what's going on downtown and the day of the week.

I also ate at Mayfel's in downtown Asheville about a month ago and that was absolutely delicious - and seemed adult-oriented as well. Try the beignets if you go! YUM
