Watching people around I notice others and us waiting 15 minutes or more for sandwiches. Maybe because we are not alternative type folks we feel a little out of place. Don't come here unless you have plenty of time.

Excellent down home restaurant that caters to its customers. Mayfel's was closed when we visited Asheville and are so glad that we stopped at Edna's. American comfort food at its finest.

Edna's has wonderful coffee and a limited amount of sweets to accompany it but the green tea there is exceptional. They also serve a limited lunch menu and their soup choices look great

The Americano was good, but the espresso was made from dark roast or over done beans. Had a sandwich and a salad. Ham and Swiss had a sweet sauce on it which ruined it for me. The Cesar salad had chicken that was bland. Not...More
