Morning Glory Cafe, Black Mountain
One of my favorite places for homemade comfort food is Morning Glory Cafe. Located at 6E Market Street, just off Rte 9 past the new super Ingles, it is a haven for locals on cold mornings.
They serve breakfast and lunch, featuring healthy fresh homemade food made by Chef Cookie Hadley. Some friends treated me to lunch there this past weekend and it was wonderful as usual.
I had the Salmon Cakes - wild Alaskan salmon, green onion, red bell peppers, lemon and capers topped with a spicy remoulade. The cakes were stuffed with salmon and not all breading like most. It was served with a fruit or side salad. Priced at $8.85.
Deb had the Build Your Own Omelet with three ingredients, served with fruit and grits or home fries. Priced at $7.95.
Larry chose lunch of Fish Po Boy - fried tilapia on grilled french bread with spicy remoulade and fresh lettuce, onion and tomato.
On warm days they offer dining outside on the patio. Expect to wait a bit as they are most always crowded but it is worth the wait.
Hours are Mon - Fri from 7am - 2pm and Sat & Sun from 8am - 2pm. Their menu is posted on their web site at www.themorningglorycafe.com. 828.669.6212
