Sunny Point Cafe is on the main drag in West Asheville. This time of year, their porch is sealed in and was pleasant on this cold winter evening.
My dinner started out with a salad that I forgot to photograph. Trust me, it was great: very fresh, greens and carrots, topped with a wonderful dressing that was creamy but not in the least bit heavy.
For my main course, I ordered the portobello stack. It's a combination of breaded portobello mushroom on top, zucchini in the middle, and polenta on the bottom. As you can see, it comes with two sauces---three if you count the dollop of pesto on top. The parmesan sauce was good, but I am a sucker for tomato sauce and this one had a great balance of sweetness and acid. The savoriness of the mushroom made this a great vegetarian choice for dinner.
While they have a wide range of vegetarian options, they don't ignore the carivores. I got a chance to taste the chicken sandwich, which was very juicy.
