Whether it is breakfast, brunch or lunch; Rise N Shine Cafe in North Asheville has always been one of our favorite spots on this end of town. This eatery features only local and fresh ingredients, and have been a staple in the community for years. Located right next door to the Hop Ice Cream shop, these two must-stop foodie spots are worth the trip up Merrimon Ave, just a few minutes from downtown Asheville. The dish above was an omelet with cheddar and mozzarella cheese, bacon, sausage, onion, tomatoes, and mushrooms. Plus a fresh fruit dish for dessert. And do you see that jam next to the omelet? That is fresh homemade jam only available at Rise N Shine, and SO GOOD!
