Weaverville lays out the welcome mat for new restaurants. Breakfast joint? Check. Brew pub? Check. Wine and cheese shop? Check. Sophisticated culinary hot spot for a dinner date without kids? Check.

It appears little Weaverville has built itself a bona fide restaurant scene. Sometime between the Great Recession and today, downtown’s Main Street defied the slow economy and added enough niche restaurants to give north Buncombe residents reason to stick around when it’s time to eat out. Now you can meet up with friends at the coffee shop, and then grab a French treat at the new crêperie. Later, listen to live music while waiting for your gourmet pizza to come out hot from the oven. Main Street now packs many great new dining options among the longtime favorites.
