Country cooking. The biscuits are amazing! The fried chicken was good. The green beans were good. Good southern sweet tea, too.
Sunny Point Cafe knows how to make a biscuit! Be prepared for a lengthy wait (we have a party of 6 and waited 90 minutes), but they warn you in advance that it'll take a while. While waiting, there is coffee and water available as well as live music and a garden to walk through. This made the wait much more bearable. Once we got seated, the food was well worth it! When a restaurant does breakfast right, people take notice. I would absolutely recommend if you're not on a tight schedule!
The chicken is delicious, just the right amount of spice. The side are just as tasty, Mac and cheese and fried okra every time! Great service as well. Never get tired of eating here.
RUN do not walk to King Daddy's Chicken and Waffles in West Asheville. It is so amazingly good. EVERYTHING was incredible. The staff is fantastic and very attentive. The owners are the nicest people and very generous to the local community. For appetizers we ate the Zucchini Cakes, Sweet Potato Hush Puppies (pour some blueberry jam on it - trust me) and my husband had the Poutine. I had the Korean Fried chicken (crispy fried and tossed with ginger soy sauce, served with pickled radish) with pumpkin waffles and it was beyond amazing. My husband had the Habanero Sweet Potato chicken - it was delicious, but the Korean is the best!!!! Our kids ate yummy fried chicken and waffles. They insisted on getting bacon on the side - big thick pieces. Our daughter is Gluten Free and she loved her GF friend chicken and waffle. Just give them a heads up because it takes a little longer than the rest of the food. King Daddy's doesn't claim to be Gluten Free, just Gluten Less, but she did not have any reactions. We were so beyond full, even with leftovers, so we didn't have a chance to try dessert. What a wonderful addition to the restaurant scene in Asheville!!!!
It has become a used to be. It used to be a great restaurant with ambience and amazing food. Now the food is a step up from needing a take out bag and is so loud its like a stadium. We were there recently and a table of 14 was making everyone else in the restaurant uncomfortable. When asked, the owner said there was nothing he could do, it was a table of 14. That translates loosely to " they are 14 people ordering French fries and I hope enough beer to make more than the tables of 2". The food was so so at best. My dinner friend got ill after the appetizer. Between the appetizer and the yelling, French fry, beer drinking table of 14, we left. Neither of us will ever return. This restaurant is no longer worth the trouble it takes to start the car.
Chicken was the worst I've ever had and I love fried chicken. I got the hot fried chicken. It was juicy but the coating was powdery, greasy, and left a bad taste in my mouth. Very disappointed and for the price, it was nothing but a let down
Carmels at one time was great - food, service, bartenders, attitude. We've watched it slide steadily downhill over the last couple of years. First the food (which seems to be swinging back up, to their credit), then the overall attitude of staff, specifically "it's going to cost you". Last night (11/7/2014), we asked about substituting a side and it was: "$2.50" to do so, no option to upgrade the side to a salad at a reduced cost (never been anywhere that wouldn't do that), and the very expensive pimento cheese appetizer ($8.00) cost $1.50 more for 6 more small crostinis needed to finish the cheese off. It might have cost them 25 cents but what it cost was the waiter a reduction in his tip. Pathetic. From the moment we asked about any accommodation it was either "We don't do that" or "it's going to cost you". Seems the accountant is managing the place, too bad, the food is decent, especially the crab cake. But I want some common sense discretion, not a constant dipping into my wallet. Sad.
We stopped by here twice while on vacation and really loved the quaint feel of the town as well as the good food. The wait was short and the staff was easy to work with. We will definitely stop by the next time we are in the area.
The best, I enjoyed my meal and left full. Great service with a smile.....The price was cheap for the amount of food. David from NE Ohio
I was informed about this place by a friend. I was very pleased with our experience there. Was in Asheville for a week and came here 4 times during the trip. Their breakfast is a must!!!!
