Vegan Items Marked

Posted on 06 / 13 / 2014

Sunny Point had a large menu but very few vegan options. Vegan options are marked, but be careful because you have to inform the server to make the food vegan. I ordered the Hoppin' John's burger which was delish, but the bun it normally comes on was not vegan and needed to be replaced with their house made bread. For conscientious meat eaters and vegetarians, they have many organic and gluten free options and more humanely raised animal food options as well. The server we had wasn't very attentive, but that fact does not effect my review as other servers may be better.

Pros: Dog friendly (on patio), Organic options, Local foods
Cons: Few vegan options, Items labeled "vegan" must be specified when order

Love this place but very limited vegan options

Loooove this place but very limited vegan options surprisingly as Asheville is generally very vegan-friendly. For brunch, pretty much the only vegan option is the Huevos Rancheros. Can substitute avocado for eggs, they have tofu sausage- I'm pretty sure I was served Morningstar sausage there once though and it contains dairy. They only have soy milk as far as non-dairy options, no almond or coconut milk. Lovely atmosphere, GREAT raised-bed garden out back. I really wish they'd become more vegan friendly with more options!

Pros: Great atmosphere, Awesome Huevos rancheros, Dog friendly on patio
Cons: Limited vegan options, Soy milk is only dairy alternative, Sometimes long wait

Always good food! Always busy, but if you go in the summer you can sit outside(heaters in winter sometimes). Pricy. Excellent salads. Good portions. Trendy West Asheville hot spot. check out pineapple jacks across the street if it's busy.

Pros: my fav salad, good portions, outside dining
Cons: pricy ($6 slice of cake??), very limited parking(park across street), very busy, long wait

As a vegan I don't really like this place. I like that they do local food but their vegan options are extremely limited and although they can omit things to make the couple vegetarian dishes vegan, they are rather bland in the end. This place is really more for meat eaters.

Pros: Local Ingredients, Friendly Service
Cons: Not very vegan friendly

hearty vegan breakfast

They are pretty big on the meat at Sunny Point, but they also do a couple of great and creative vegan breakfast options, as well as several other vegetarian choices. Everything is well-prepared with extremely generous portions and they'll make things vegan when they can. Always jam-packed for obvious reasons. On top of the good food and reasonable prices they have their own garden and try to serve food that's as fresh and local as possible. Only down-side is they are serving all kinds of meat as well. Too bad.

Pros: good, creative food, huge portions, reasonable prices
Cons: always crowded

What lentil said

Posted on 08 / 15 / 2009

Lentils review pretty much summed it up. The Huevos Fucheros is da bomb. They have a few very good veggie choices for any meal, but they really excel at breakfast. Service is good. I think they tried to be a little to "fancy" for dinner when they started serving it. You used to order at the counter and sit down, but The lines would form out the door for weekend brunch and people would fight for tables, some people would get food and have no table while others took tables prior to ordering food. It was a mess, but now all that is being managed by a hostess with a list.

The patio is great, but inside is sorta close quarters.

All in all it is great to have yet another good "crossover" restaurant for dining with carnivores.

Pros: good breakfast, nice little patio, Huevos Fucheros
Cons: small, busy, not much selection

The food here is delicious, fresh & healthy. I highly recommend Sunny point for breakfast or lunch. The dinner menu has much less vegetarian choices. The have the best huevos tofucheros in the world. Everything here is seasoned deliciously. Lots of fresh herbs. I don't even really like grits but I always get grits at Sunny Point. There grits are soooo good! Portions are a bit huge so watch out. Usually when I leave here I'm not hungry again for the rest of the day!

Pros: awesome brunch spot, outdoor seating, heuvos fucheros
Cons: dinner menu is more for meat eaters, portions kinda insanely huge
