The Montford Jewel Insider's Guide

EAT.
The food scene in Asheville does not disappoint, y’all. This foodie city has been recognized by hundreds of national and international food publications. A ton of the culinary hot spots mentioned on this list are walkable from The Montford Jewel, including All Day Darling, Nine Mile, and Chiesa. You may want to look up each place online to check out the walking distance, review their menu selection and make reservations (if that is an available option). Our experience has been that a lot of these restaurants will have waits over the weekend, especially at peak eating times. So, our suggestion is to make a reservation when possible or go earlier/later than regular meal times! No one likes waiting too long when they’re hungry. Welcome to foodtopia and happy eating!
In our opinion, one of the best restaurants in town; their bacon is to die for, they've won awards for their funky take on huevos rancheros and their chicken and waffles dish, plus their biscuits are massive and glorious- as you can probably tell by the dishes mentioned, this is southern cooking with a flare. They have options for vegetarians and vegans as well. This place also has some of the longest wait times in Asheville. We recommend getting there before 9am OR go around 2pm on Saturday because breakfast is served all day and they also have lunch and dinner options.

Delicious hashes and omelets, and refreshing juices. Over Easy is small, in the heart of downtown and has delicious, local ingredients in most dishes. They are only open for breakfast and lunch, and close at 2pm every day.

Posana is delicious and has a slightly upper scale vibe. It is right downtown near Pack Square and they actually do take brunch reservations online or by phone. They are also a completely gluten free restaurant and you would never be able to tell because their food is just so good! They have a great mix between healthier options and more traditional southern items.

Modern Californian & Mexican cooking in a romantic and homey environment. Check out their menu because this place has amazing cocktails, including habanero and pomegranate margaritas. Brunch is Sunday only, and includes poblano-smoked duck sausage burritos, smoked chipotle chilaquiles and Mexican hot chocolate with churros- is your mouth watering yet? This would also be a great dinner option- it has some of the freshest fish in town! Reservations highly recommended.

The most famous BBQ in Asheville! They not only have legendary meat options slathered in your choice of housemade bbq sauce but they also delicious sides (so vegetarians can eat here as well!). They have two locations but we like the River Arts District location best. They are not open on Saturday or Sunday and are not open for dinner- check out their hours, location and menu online. The Wedge Foundation (one of Asheville's oldest breweries) is also right next door and a fun place to visit before/after some delicious BBQ.

The food is award winning and the environment and location are also what make this place. Buxton Hall is located on the South Slope (brewery district on the south edge of downtown) so you could eat here and walk to the breweries. You could also eat here for brunch or lunch on the weekends. Check their website for their hours and menu- this place is really fun! They are notorious for their fried chicken, catfish and of course BBQ. Also, the line can get looong so go early! They do not take reservations.

The new name of this restaurant is All Day Darling -- AirBnB has not updated its listing to include this name change so please ignore the former name, Tod's Tasties. This gem will fulfill all your breakfast, lunch and even dinner needs- they serve breakfast all day, hence the name. They also have tasty coffee and tea drinks. This is a 5-6 minute walk from The Montford Jewel and one of our favorite Asheville restaurants. Highly recommend the standard breakfast sandwich or the fried chicken biscuit.

These chocolate specialists use carefully sourced beans to create truffles, bars & other delicious and unique sweets. Always a favorite of locals and tourists alike.

DRINK.
Asheville has tons of drink options for those who are wanting to enjoy creative and innovative craft cocktails, as well as all of the craft beers of your dreams. Though the entire city of Asheville is sprawling with breweries, the main brewery area is called the South Slope and is located in the south part of downtown Asheville.

The Grove Park Inn is a massive historic resort hotel with breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. You can enjoy a drink out on the terrace, sit by the enormous fireplaces in one of the rocking chairs, go to the spa, dine at one of the several restaurants and just walk around the grounds and explore.

GET OUTSIDE.
Welcome to the Blue Ridge Mountains and (what we think is) the best outdoor city in the south! For more information on hikes listed here and beyond this list, check out our favorite local hiking resource at www.romanticasheville.com . We should also mention that the Montford Historic District (the neighborhood where The Montford Jewel is located) is one of the best residential neighborhoods in all of Asheville to explore. We walk the neighborhood streets daily and admire the history and architecture of the homes. You will find that Montford Avenue and Cumberland Avenue have several older, charming bed and breakfasts that are lovely to view, as well as hundreds of homes influenced by the Victorian era, Arts and Craft and Queen Anne styles throughout the neighborhood. Be sure to stroll around!
This is a small playground located a block down the street from The Montford Jewel! It includes swings, slides, sandbox, and a small basketball court. To get to Magnolia Park, walk out of our gravel driveway at The Montford Jewel and take a right down Flint Street (heading north and downhill). You will run right into it! If you continue to go past Magnolia Park towards Broadway Street, you will come upon the Reed Creek Greenway on your left which is wonderful for walking!

It's a drive to get there but the actual hike is short (1.7 miles round-trip) and you will feel like you're in the Sound of Music once you arrive at the top. Max Patch is also part of the Appalachian Trail and the views at the summit are epic. This is about an hour and fifteen minute drive from The Montford Jewel (and we think totally worth it!). This hike is not accessed via the Blue Ridge Parkway so you do not have to worry about seasonal closings.

This short mile-high hike offers huge rewards, including a panoramic 360-degree view at the top. It's only a 1.4-mile round-trip hike to the top of the 5,892-ft. summit (Craggy Pinnacle) and is uphill for most of the way so please keep that in mind when deciding this hike. The hike departs from a signed trailhead at the visitor center, located off the Blue Ridge Parkway at mile post 364. The trail departs from the southern end of the parking area, climbing and winding through a lush, green, rocky forest filled with gnarly-branched rhododendron. Please note that the Parkway is closed November-April.

One of my absolute favorite buildings in Asheville and only a 10 minute walk from The Montford Jewel. The Grove Arcade entails countless shops, delicious restaurants, and even a foot spa (Wake Foot Spa)... and the architecture is one of a kind.

Reminds me of indoor flea market shopping (with higher prices) but with over 75 antique vendors. Don't forget you can always try to negotiate on pricing with vendors here! This is another great place to get lost in and find unique treasures.

Stroll the streets of the River Arts District (RAD), where some of Asheville’s most creative spirits showcase their one-of-a-kind art in over 200 bustling artist studios. You could spend an entire afternoon (let's bet honest, DAY) getting lost in the RAD galleries. We love all of the studios, but find ourselves most often strolling the shops along Depot Street, as well as Clingman Avenue and Roberts Street. For a thorough list of the artist galleries check-out: https://www.exploreasheville.com/things-to-do/shopping/shopping-districts/river-arts-district/

Grail plays independent films and some of their theaters even have cozy couches that you can curl up on while watching your movie. One of our favorite date nights in town is eating thai food next door at Little Bee Thai and then walking a few feet next door to watch an indie film at Grail.
