For brunch or lunch, The Rhu is an absolute must try, better yet order their Cruze Buttermilk Biscuit with Benton's Prosciutto. You're likely to never try another biscuit that taste's quite as good. For more baked deliciousness, OWL Bakery has some of the yummiest tartines (pictured here.. need I say more?).
The only two doughnut spots in town worth trying are Hole Doughnuts and Vortex Doughnuts, and frankly they don't even compete against each other. Go to Hole Doughnuts for a new style of doughnut, fresh and made-to-order, but for a more traditional style doughnut, Vortex is your spot.
Back to those outdoor activities.. Drive America's most scenic route along the The Blue Ridge Parkway, stop along the way and view one of these 60 waterfalls, or take one of these 75 hikes around Asheville!
