Haven't tried the food yet but the atmosphere and staff are comfy and friendly. Drinks are very reasonable. The history behind the building and materials used inside to decorate were a wonderful conversation we had with the owner Cam. Impressed by the passion behind the business and the philanthropic efforts for the community. Don't miss it.
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!
An incredibly enjoyable breakfast experience! Delicious food and great service from the staff. Biscuits are flakey, cooked to perfection, and come with a variety of jam and gravy options!
I hope this place burns to the ground. The owner andrew sell herion. Hello ASheville Police he SELLS HERION. Please do something although i doubt you will. BUt i will continue on my quest to take him down alone.
They do have good prices but its at a price. They have cosmetics and medicines with the box taped up. I bought deodorant there three times in a row and each time the knob wouldn't work making it useless after a few days. I bought Canned fruit and when I opened it the fruit was unidentifiable. It was off white and pinkish and didnt have a taste. It expired 3 years earlier. They sell so called certified organic beef but when I called the farm that the beef came from and they said that no it's not but that hopey and co. Put the label on. I contacted hopey and co and soon after they were crossing out the labels that stated this. A few weeks later, the labels were back to saying the same thing as before. When I asked an employee they said the owners said they has to stop crossing it out. They didnt fix the problem. The produce is moldy and the bulk bin products like granola doesn't get rotated out. I watch them only add more to the top and it tastes Stale. Id rather pay more and get satisfying food from a company that isn't trying to rip me off by selling me rotten food that they get for dirt cheap through actions when other stores reject the products
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.
Nice atmosphere, staff friendly, clean facility, not consistent with food quality/portion. Great drink specials.
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.
