Asheville NC Vacation The Ultimate Vacation Destination

    To our Asheville NC cabin vacation rental guests who are particular about the quality of foods you cook with and eat, I highly recommend shopping for your groceries at the beautiful new Earth Fare in South Asheville.  This is a full service grocery store and café devoted to the health conscious.  If you are gourmet cook, you’ll enjoy all the fine ingredients you can find here.  I especially appreciate that the store is well laid out and the friendly staff is extremely helpful whenever I’ve needed assistance. 

     I never thought I’d go into a grocery store just to admire how beautiful it is, but Earth Fare on Hendersonville Road changed my outlook forever (I love the floors)!  The elegant and sophisticated ambiance is a perfect setting for the vibrantly colored (and, of course, organic) fruits and vegetables, immense cheese and wine selection, countless isles (well, maybe you can count them, but this IS a large store!) of packaged foods, frozen foods, chemical-free meats, teas and coffees, bulk foods and spices, herbal remedies and supplements, chemical-free cosmetics, deli counter with delicious already prepared foods, decadent dessert counter (including the “World’s Best Carrot Cake” by our good friend Avi at www.WorldsBestCarrotCake.com) ….and not to forget the salad/hot foods bar where you can load up your plate (priced by the pound) and have it to go or eat it in their dining area.  As with all organic stores, the prices will be a bit higher than the conventional grocery store…and well worth it!

    Genny spots the Cinebarre

    Genny spots the Cinebarre

    Review by Stephanie Joy Johnson & Robert A Bowles for our Asheville Vacation Home guests and visitors: www.AshevilleVacationHomes.com

    We live to eat yummy food AND watch $3 movies (and $1 on Sundays with a great Sunday Brunch menu served for movies starting no later than 2 PM).  We were thrilled when the Cinebarre Movie Theater Restaurant came to Asheville, NC meeting both these necessities of our lives!  How convenient (and a bit decadent) to have your theater usher take your food order at your seat and bring it to you while you watch your movie.  The seats are quite comfortable and there’s plenty of table room in front of you to spread out the goodies you’ve ordered. 

    I must confess that the whipped cream topped creamy coffee milkshakes (for Robert) and the mint chocolate milkshakes (for me) along with the fresh baked Braveheart 10” pizza (spinach, 4 cheese blend, sun dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, roasted garlic, goat cheese & olive oil) & the Body Snatchers (crispy potato skins with peppered bacon, melted cheddar cheese and chives) has us looking what recent movies are showing at this theater so we can go just for the tasty food.  For the two of us, it ends up being about $30 dollars for this outing. 

    Beer and wines as well as a varied food menu are available to order before and during the first-run movies.   See their menu on line to get an idea of what is offered. The Cinebarre is located in Asheville at the back of the Biltmore Square Mall just off I-26 exit 33.  Click on a photo for their Website:  Phone: 828.665.8661

    You might also want to check on line with the theater’s policies regarding children.  Children under 6 are not allowed except for “Scream Tuesdays” when the first showing allows parents to bring their young ones (for free).  It’s fun, it’s tasty and we recommend it to local residents as well as our Asheville NC visitors staying at our luxury Asheville and Hendersonville vacation rental homes:  www.AshevilleVacationHomes.com 

    See ya at the movies!
