Excellent Food

I travel for work and don't spend much time in Asheville, but sometimes I go out of my way to stop off there just to dine at Posana. Excellent food and great service!

Fabulous Gluten Free Restaurant

The first time I've eaten out in several years due to food allergies. We went to Asheville for a weekend just because I had read about Posana being 100% GF and it was wonderful. The servers and Peter were very helpful in determining what other foods I could have w/my dairy & soy allergies as well. You would never know the food was GF. I enjoyed a Mocha made w/hemp milk that was DIVINE. My only wish is that they would use Spectrum Shortening instead of butter in their bakery items, there was only 1 muffin option w/no dairy when we visited and I would have loved to had the scones. We ate their multiple times during our stay, I almost cried when I had a sandwich because it tasted like real foccacia bread which I miss terribly. Overall this was the best weekend in forever being able to go out to eat and not worry about gluten or contamination. Thanks Posana Cafe and staff, we will definitely be back.

SUPERB chef & proprietor

The food was absolutely fabulous. We've eaten world wide and recommend this place. It's relatively new, yet Peter and Martha have created a unique superb establishment with outstanding food. Prices are reasonable. Food is unique, creative, and delicious. The lunch menu with the succulent scalops are highly recommended. Dinner (yes, we returned 5 days straight to this place) was great quality... everything was fresh and well prepared. Highest quality food.
