This beauiful forest green bed and breakfast in the Grove Park area is a surprise for a Sunday brunch option in North Ashevllle. The food is creative Southern and completely different from what everyone else is dishing up in town. For that they get an A+. More people should known about this option, however Princess Anne will need to step up the game in terms of staffing.
When we arrived, there was no one to greet us. A lovely woman did come out of the kitchen to show us to our table, she was also our waiter. So, it is a kind of one woman show. Overall service gets a three star rating. Come on guys, if you are going to serve one of the best breakfast experiences in Asheville, step up the game in this area. There was no wine list. In our opinion, Sunday brunch should always include bubbles, and it is sad to report the Prosecco ordered was not previously chilled. It is the little things, such as this, that make all the difference.
Let’s move on to the food. Combined at the table we enjoyed the Sweet Potato Pancakes, Corned Beef Sweet Potato Hash, and the Breakfast Brussels. It’s hard to relay the fluffiness of the pancakes in words, and the flavor perfected in each dish. We have not met the in-house chef, Billy Green, however your palate will appreciate the talent. The dishes could improve on overall presentation, however we will continute to go back to dine here.
Decor is minimal. Once a nursing home, turned Bed & Breakfast, Princess Anne’s new owners are doing something right. Offering a very homey feel, we imagine word will spread quickly about this brand new to town brunch offering. You may want to check out the food and wine pairing dinner co-hosted with Metro Wines for a Valentine’s Dinner in Febriary 2018. We have a feeling they will knock it out of the park. To bad this was the end of this visit to Asheville for food reviews.
You will find this be a pleasant surprise. They may be still working out the kinks as they opened the door to the public only within the last few weeks.
Off-the-beaten Asheville path, not your typical brunch fare!
The feeling, it almost takes to dining in Europe.
