This morning, I met my parents, sister, and grandfather for a delightful brunch in Biltomore Village, a part of Asheville I don't think I've touched upon yet. Biltmore Village is an area close to Asheville High School, the hospital, and the River Arts District, which I visited last semester. Located in Biltmore Village is the Biltmore House and Estate, known for being the largest privately owned home in America. (When the weather warms up, I'm hoping to take a trip to the Biltmore House and post about it, so stay tuned for that!) There are a number of small shops and restaurants in Biltmore Village itself, so we could have visited any of these for a satisfying meal, but today we chose a small little place called the Books & Breadboard. As the name suggests, this little cafe is part bookshop, part eatery. The place itself is actually a tiny bookstore, but there are tables scattered throughout, which allows customers to simultaneously enjoy a calm atmosphere, browse for books, and enjoy good food. All dishes are served on wooden cutting boards, which adds a touch of whimsy to the meal. When spring arrives, they will open up the patio seating outside, allowing diners to enjoy the warm weather and a view of downtown Biltmore Village with their new books and cup of morning coffee.
