The Corner Kitchen. This place was on everyone's list as a "must eat". The Corner Kitchen is located in a home that was once occupied by an engineer that worked on the Biltmore Estate.
I had pancakes with a blueberry compote. Hubs ordered the Biltmore Village Breakfast. We both agreed that it was so delicious. Once again there was more food than either of us could eat.
We enjoyed strolling up and down the Village streets after breakfast. There are so many quaint little shops.
One of my favorite stores was a shop called Just Ducky. It was clothing for children. I really wanted to buy tons of dresses for my sweet MM and LK, but wound up not since I was so unsure of their sizes.
In the afternoon we headed back to the Biltmore to go kayaking. The French Broad River flows straight through the middle of the estate. We had the best time!
I have always said that my hubs is one of the most romantic men ever and he proved it again while we were kayaking. He had a message in a bottle that hidden for me to find along our kayaking route. I was so shocked to find this bottle and this sweet romantic note from my sweet husband in the middle of our time together. I am so blessed. I hope he keeps me another 20 years!
After a quick shower we headed out to explore some more of Asheville. Nine Mile was on our list for supper. This is a Jamaican/Carribean restaurant that hubs was excited about trying. He ordered their signature dish which included jerk chicken, roasted potatoes, squash and zucchini over basamati rice with toasted almonds. I decided to try a Jamaican salmon dish. It was served with grape tomatoes, kalamata olives, zucchini, square, feta cheese over linguini with a butter sauce. Oh my it was good!
We drove through downtown to see what was going on. Street performers of all ages were everywhere. One street was lined with guys playing endless rounds of chess.
Oh Asheville.... we enjoyed our time with you so much. We'll be back again with our boys!
