Outdoor types and other locals gather at this laid-back coffee stop just a few blocks from downtown. The coffee is smooth, strong, and pretty (the baristas are known for their latte art). The food offerings are a little limited but delicious: muffins, granola with yogurt, cookies, bagels, smoothies, or paninis. Service is friendly and prompt, and the vibe is relaxed: there's no posing and or scene-making. There's outdoor seating and free Wi-Fi (limited to an hour), plus just for a little extra Asheville flavor, you can order a kombucha, too.
