Mayfel's is a nice place for brunch. The service is friendly and the menu has a good selection to choose from. I went with the Southern Benedict which had the fried green tomato and ham on a biscuit. The portion was large so I didn't have room for my side of mac n cheese. I'd return here to try some other items on the menu.

Had a big breakfast of French Toast and my wife had delicious eggs benedict. The place was very busy so the wait staff was stretched thin. Regardless the food was very good in a very casual atmosphere.

Chose Mayfels after Tupelo Honey next door had a long wait with nowhere for a handicapped customer to sit during the wait. Glad we walked next door instead. Good variety, huge portions, moderately priced, and tasty. I got the crab burger and, being from Maryland, it was not the best I’d ever had but my friend said her entree was very good and other diners seemed very satisfied. Was only a short walk from downtown hotels. Would return.

Came into town with 4 couples. On a Saturday at 11:30 chances of getting seated as a group are pretty slim. Tupelo has 90-120 min wait. Even if we split up into 2 groups.
We had a 30 min wait at Mayfels. It was amazing.
Bloody Mary Bar
Blackened Lobster Benedict
Shrimp Po Boys
Muffuletta
All amazing.
Service was quick and constant attention was given to our group.
I challenge you to find a better place to eat. Of course there are plenty of go-to spots in Asheville, make this yours.
