Hi. My partner and I eat at this restaurant once a week. The only reason I did not give Papa's and Beer a five star review is because, on one occasion, the waitress brought me the wrong order. (She didn't speak very good English, if at all). Generally speaking, the food has been wonderful and the wait staff always friendly and quite attentive. It seems that within seconds, not minutes, free, fresh tortilla chips and a bean dip are placed on the table upon the clients being seated. There is a free condiment 'bar' where one can load up on delicious, variously colored and flavored dips, from mild to 'packs a great punch.' Most days there are drink specials. Their Monday special, a margarita for 3.75 is ample and delicious, made with first rate alcohols. The wait staff, when unoccupied, gather together and are always laughing. This only adds to the pleasant atmosphere. I highly recommend this restaurant. Warm Greetings to Papa's and Bier, Patrice T.
What a find! They are a snall cafe and local art gallery in East West Asheville that serves breakfast and lunch. We each had a sandwich and a side. Mine the "The Michealangelo" was an Italian grinder that was just to big to finish. Piles of meat and veggies! Great combo of flavors. My friend had the "El Grecco" a turkey, spinach, feta, tomato and olive wrap pressed on a panini grill. I was not allowed to even have a bite as he said it was just "too good" . Our sides were homemade potato salad and Mom's cole slaw. Both just amazing. The service was very friendly and attentive. A very relaxed atomsphere as well. The gallery section is made up of all local artist and the prices are very reasonable. I even picked up a birthday gift and earrings for under $20. If you are in the area stop by you will not be dissappointed. I know we will be back. We will try breakfast next time. Which they serve all day.
444 Gallery Cafe has become one of my all time favorite restaurants in Asheville. The food is consistent, simple osteria food. I often order the appetizing Michelangelo (Italian Grinder) specialty sandwich, though anyone of their fresh grilled Panini sandwiches with a side of potato salad are also especially yummy. The cafe is very relaxed and a wonderful place to meet friends or for business meetings. I actually, got to host an after hours business meeting that 444 Gallery Cafe catered - the staff at Gallery Cafe really did a great job to ensure my meeting was a huge success. Everyone who attended the meeting raved about the food, dessert and coffee choices. The cafe also has a large parking lot, that made parking easy and safe. I can't wait to eat there again, and certainly recommend Gallery Cafe for breakfast, lunch or special event catering.
