We went to a few breakfast places while we were in Asheville last week and Over Easy was disappointment. We got in line one morning before they opened. We were the second group in at 8am to be seated. It just seemed the wait staff where running around right when it opened just to keep up. We first ordered coffee. I got mine right away because it was a regular coffee. My wife ordered a decaf coffee, it took about 20 minutes to get it. It seemed it was just sitting on the counter and they forget to bring it over until I asked for it. Now for the Food. I had the huevos rancheros and my wife had the pancakes and an order of beacon. The rancheros and coffee were just average. The pancakes had no taste and the beacon was too salty to eat.. Also, no one ever offered to top our coffee, mine was empty for most of our meal. I'm glad I had some water.
Not sure why this place has a lot of good reviews. Maybe because they're not many options for breakfast. Lastly this place is a little overprice for what you get.

I am so sorry to hear about your visit to the cafe. Im surprised to hear the pancake was lacking in flavor that is a favorite around here. Maybe you'll enjoy your visit next time but either way thank you for trying us out and we will use this review to grow!

We got to sit outside in the fresh air, and the food was great. Service was decent. It's always, always, busy, as we witnessed by walking by it every day.

My Husband and I ate here for breakfast on a Saturday. It was about an hour wait but there was a farmers market around the block where we killed time. We ordered the 1 peach and cream pancake and the steak omelet. Both were very good. The pancake is huge. The size of a large dinner plate. The omelet was excellent with a combination of ingredients that were very tasty. A local favorite.

There are several fantastic breakfast places in Asheville, Over Easy Cafe is easily one of the top 5. On par, or better than, Biscuit Head and Tupelo Honey.

Expect a wait to be seated, but know it's worth it!
