Abeja’s House Cafe really sets the bar when it comes to brunch cuisine in Asheville. (And that’s saying a lot because there is no shortage of breakfast joints in this town.)

But there’s one thing about this place that keeps me coming back at least once a month. Consistency. I have never had a poor experience here, and that is a rarity nowadays. I can’t say that about every restaurant I frequent. Abeja’s staff is always kind and courteous, the grub is always flavorful and pleasing and literally everything about my experience every single time is spot on.

It’s also apparent that each employee takes pride in their work, from the chefs to the wait staff. They put all their efforts into making sure you have a positive experience–and that’s worth something.

Alright, let’s get to the good part. Food. That’s what you’re here for, right? I know, I know. But formalities, ya know?

Let me just say this: Abeja’s menu is great because it offers simple Latin dishes with a little twist. And most (if not all) of their dishes can be altered for dietary needs/restrictions. (I’m talking to you, gluten-free peeps.)

A few things: their biscuits are heavenly, the Huevos Rancheros are a game changer (and they can be made vegetarian-friendly upon request) and if the biscuit french toast is on special, order it and weep tears of joy –it’s that good.
