With a great coffee bar and comfy chairs, it is a great place to sit back, relax, and enjoy a book. They have a large selection (for the mountains) and friendly atmosphere.
World Famous is right... the food here is fantastic! Whether you want freshly made pizza's or something from the Italian menu, don't forget to leave room for dessert.
The Ham Shoppe is wonderful! You fill out a ticket of exactly what you want and fresh to order, your lunch arrives in a brown paper bag. They have several bread types, meats, cheeses, condiments, etc. Very few places to sit, it is mostly to go.
Youthful and colorful atmosphere. Reasonable prices, good food. Small place, but does have outside patio. Extensive menu offering. Close to everything.
Has everything including the kitchen sink. There are three locations, Valle Crusis is the original, Blowing Rock main street, and Boone on King street. The Valle Crusis has two buildings, the general store and the annex, aka Candy Barrel! Great experience whether you are posting mail or sitting for a game of checkers and soda.
Very friendly staff. Organic and local produce. The people really know their stuff! Has everything from personal care products, to fresh produce, to bulk foods, and filtered water.
Bistro Roca's food and drinks are great. The prices are reasonable in that it is in a tourist location. I would recommend them. Look at the specials board!
