While waiting for our soup and sandwich, we enjoyed a beer and watched sports on tv. Perfect! It's not a sports bar, but these folks accommodate.

Given how busy lunch places in Black Mountain can be during tourist season, the Artisan is a delightful change of pace. Not crowded; quiet; great food; yet not out of the way. I had the pulled pork BBQ sandwich on artisan bread. It was excellent.More

This is the soul of Black Mountain. Best coffee, inviting, local, colorful menu. A home away from home... Board games, art, bigscreen TV...not too big & in a park-like setting. Works perfectly for a quiet early morning coffee or family dining.
