Best Brunch Spots in the High Country

Brunch is something us southerners do best, and it’s no secret that the High Country has some of the best food in the state. And with our season opening of our golf course restaurant, The 19th Hole, we’ve had brunch on the brain. Here’s a list of all the spots we crave on Sundays.

The River Dog
Linville, NC
This quaint little coffee and breakfast spot is just a few minutes from Linville Land Harbor. While The River Dog specializes in coffee, the menu consists of delicious sandwiches, salads, breakfast items, many of which are gluten-free! (Locals rave about the Belgian waffles). The cozy environment makes for a perfect for weekend brunch with your pup on the patio.

Village Cafe
Blowing Rock, NC
This rustic style gem is tucked away on Main Street in downtown Blowing Rock. Village Cafe is known for being one of the most popular places in town with a crowd of local regulars, so reservations are recommended on the weekends to get a spot on the patio. Depending on the time of day, enjoy your crepes or crab cakes on the outdoor garden patio Village Cafe is famous for.

Sunrise Grill
Boone, NC
This family-owned breakfast and lunch spot is in the heart of Boone and a local favorite. The menu here accommodates big breakfast eaters, especially if you’re a biscuits and gravy fan. Sunrise Grill is known for its unique take on traditional breakfast dishes and it’s relaxed and casual atmosphere.

The 19th Hole
Linville, NC
Located on the Linville Land Harbor golf course, The 19th Hole is the perfect spot to break up your game, or just enjoy the view. We just recently vamped up our menu with all new breakfast and lunch items, from biscuits and gravy to customizable hamburgers. We just opened for the season, so come meet us on the 8th hole for a post-game beer!
