There’s no shortage of amazing food and restaurant venues in Upstate SC, so the fact that I am willing to drive an hour to eat at Sunny Point Café in Asheville, NC should speak volumes to you!
I was introduced to Sunny Point Café before Christmas and since that time I have made the trek up the mountain several times. It’s that good!
About Sunny Point Café
Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, you’ll find this unique restaurant crowded all day. The menu is varied with something for everyone. I found a new favorite dish when I tried their shrimp and grits. Excited to try a new entree on a recent trip to Sunny Point Café, my resolve melted away as soon as we were seated. I couldn’t resist ordering the shrimp and grits for the second time! Mom ordered the Huevos Rancheros sandwich, voted No. 2 in the nation by Good Morning America. It’s a heaping piece of fried chicken and bacon pressed between two pieces of waffle. You can’t go wrong with that. It’s the perfect dish for the indecisive palate that can’t decide between breakfast and lunch!
Books with the history of Sunny Point Café and recipes of favorite dishes are provided for customers to scan while waiting for their orders. JP, my ten year old son, enjoyed touring the Sunny Point Café garden where owners grow vegetables and spices for cooking. The garden also serves as a great place to hang out while waiting to be seated.
If the wait is long and you want to explore a bit, the hostess will gladly take your cell phone number. Not only can you explore the garden, you can stroll down the street and check out the shops. There are benches to sit on as well as a self-serve coffee station just outside the entrance. If you have children, you’ll want to avoid traditional meal times because the wait can get a little long for your little ones.
If I had to point out one con among the many pros, it would be the parking. There’s a small lot beside the café and another at the entrance to the garden. Those two lots would probably be sufficient for most restaurants, but Sunny Point Café is definitely not your typical restaurant.
This is one mountain-top experience you don’t want to miss!
