The breakfast and lunch menus have both been updated -- and are amazing. What a change from the "old" Artisan. The service has also improved dramatically. Artisan is a diamond in this little jewel of a town.

We had lunch at this lovely market and were able to eat outside with our dog, Sid. Our lunch was truly delicious. Fresh and tasteful! We later stopped for a wine tasting, which lead to enjoying the wine seated outdoors again on a beautiful night. The owners, Jimmy and Denise, were both so down to earth and easy to talk... More

Back Mountain is fortunate to have a chef who can offer outstanding wine pairing dinners at The Artisan Gourmet Market. Located in this beautiful, small town close to Asheville, out-of-towners and locals should look at their calendar to make a note of these special occasions. We felt the price was very reasonable. From appetizer to dessert, each course suited our... More

In addition there's a cozy café that serves coffee, breakfast and lunch items and casual dinner. The owner and staff are very knowledgeable and helpful.... More

We have visited the (vastly improved) Artisan several times, most recently for one of their excellent Thursday night dinners. Beautifully prepared and thoughtfully presented by Jimmy and Denise (the owners) and their team. An innovative and extensive selection of interesting bottles of wine are available to enjoy with your meal for just a small surcharge over the retail prices. We... More

Our family stopped here on the way out of town. The food was delicious. It is pricier than other breakfast places but the quality is worth it. Their coffee is really good. The cafe opens before the store so be sure to enter at the side entrance.

Stopped in for breakfast on our last trip to the NC mountains and were very impressed. The omelets and pastries are fantastic. We'll definitely go back the next time we are in the area.

Stopped in for a cup of coffee and was warmly greeted by the owners, Jimmy and Denise, and the staff. Jimmy gave us a sample of his newly created gourmet sausage recipe.
