Food

The menu is creative with lots of healthy choices including mushroom toast with warm brie on sourdough, smashed avocado toast on sourdough, and almond butter toast with oats and fruit on sourdough. If you are seeking something a bit more traditional, the bagel sandwiches are delicious, although a tad overpriced. They do offer a few pastries as well including the most delicious moist blueberry muffins and decent chocolate croissants.

One unique entrée choice here is the Shashuka. This savory Middle Eastern dish consists of 2 poached eggs in a flavorful tomato based sauce, served with pita and sautéed kale.

For anyone craving something sweet, the gluten-free pancakes served with fruit should satisfy your craving.

As far as the coffee goes, they serve top notch coffee from Counter Culture, a renowned roaster based out of Durham. They also offer quite a few specialty drinks such as a Match Latte, Hemp Latte, and a Golden turmeric latte. Their regular coffee is a bit on the sweet side, so opt for an Americano if you prefer darker roasts.

Service

This is a counter service establishment, so you will order at the cashier and buss your own table. Not a whole lot of service involved, however, the staff are always pleasant enough. The vibe is low key and local.

Atmosphere

The ambiance in a historic neighborhood of Asheville (as opposed to the touristy downtown) sets All Day Darling apart from other breakfast establishments. The building itself is small although there are big windows looking out into the garden patio. It's always really bright with the large windows bringing in plenty of natural light.

Additionally, a beautiful garden patio invites you to dine alfresco during the warmer months.
