We love the fresh selections at Dandelion and it's one of our favorite places in Hendo for lunch. Everything is delicious, the staff is very friendly, and your purchase supports their internship program for violence victims and those at risk.

Cool little spot just off Main Street. Staff is incredibly friendly and food is excellent. I had the chicken pot pie which reminded me of my mom's. Spinach quiche, paninis, wraps and other sandwiches on the menu sound great. My wife had the quiche and...loved it.More

This place is wonderful and I LOVE its concept of training women and the commitment to the community and it’s residents to relocate and train women to start over in a safe environment.

The food here is tasty, the fact that you are helping other women is great! Plus it is in downtown Hendersonville so you can take a nice walk after lunch.

Very friendly employees, a warm welcome and comfortable surroundings- order and pay for your food then they bring it to you - the tuna melt and portobello burger were lovely.
