A recent article about places to have breakfast missed Café Ello on Haywood Street, across from the library [“Breakfast Off the Beaten Path,” Dec. 21 Xpress]. It is an excellent place for breakfast. Not only does it have excellent food (especially the egg dishes), it also serves lunch salads, soups and sandwiches. The café offers an extensive tea selection and coffee and espresso drinks. Most importantly, it has a comfortable, welcoming "sit down and relax” atmosphere.
Look them up! We have been patrons of Café Ello since it opened, and we have never walked away unsatisfied.

Xpress responds: Thank you for your feedback, and we're sure Café Ello appreciates the nod. With the article you reference, we focused primarily on restaurants not located in downtown Asheville. It wasn't intended to be a comprehensive guide to all places to eat breakfast — we simply don't have the space for that. We do our best to keep up with Asheville's bountiful food scene in the weekly paper, and everyday at mountainx.com/dining.
