Great food, terrible wait in line and felt like we were participants on celebrity death match in order to get a table. One has to wait for people to finish eating then get ones own table in order to sit and eat (in other words,...More

We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast of waffles, eggs, stoneground grits, bacon and coffee from a local roaster. Their front porch was the perfect setting too. Eat fresh and eat local.

We visited Louisa's Kitchen on a Sunday for brunch. I was very disappointed in the offerings and the food. It is definitely cheap eats...but not good eat's either. Mostly egg offerings. One stands in line and orders and then finds a table. Will not return.

We were glad to discover this treasure. Their breakfast sausage and other local offerings made the meals delicious. Their coffee was extra good. We went twice and would have gone again.

Very hospitable restaurant, full of character and with genuinely engaging staff. The food was delicious. As a Brit this was my first experience of grit cakes - very good. Our boys enjoyed both the pancakes and the waffles. We highly recommend at least one visit.

If you don't want typical fast food breakfasts in Black Mountain, you have only two or three choices and one of them is Louise's Kitchen. Be prepared for a line. But it is worth it waiting for. You order at the counter and they bring...More
