Restaurants in Flat Rock, NC

In the orbit of Asheville, Flat Rock is a charming Blue Ridge Mountain foothills village to which Deep South folks come to escape 100 degree temperatures.  Historically, it is known as the place to which poet Carl Sandburg retired. His home is now a tourist destination. Flat Rock isn’t big enough to have a dining scene, but it does have a handful of extraordinary places to eat, including the brick-oven Village Bakery, known for artisan loaves and thin-crust pizzas; a hugely popular open-air BBQ (Hubba Hubba Smokehouse) where the motto is, “We’re about as far from fast food as you can get”; and Honey and Salt, which is a beguiling brunch destination featuring clever nut-and-berry toasts and skillet breakfasts. “Honey and Salt” is the name of a book of poems that Carl Sandburg wrote.
