Reid’s Cafe is located in beautiful Sugar Mountain, NC. We love the intentional, the specific, and the well-cared-for. We work closely with our local farms and purveyors to curate fresh, seasonal menus that feature regionally sourced meats, a rotation of fresh oysters and select seafood. All of our breads, pastas, and pastries are prepared in-house daily. Our Bar offers local beers, seasonal craft cocktails, and a well chosen wine selection. We are currently operating under all Covid-19 restrictions and following all CDC and local guidelines. The health and safety of our guests and our staff is our #1 priority. Outdoor reservations are by phone only. We look forward to seeing you.

Maybe it was because the reviews were so good I expected a lot. Ordered from the lunch menu. But the food was just okay. Plating was awkward which made it difficult to eat. Ordered the beet salad- there were only 4 small beets and a whole lot of cabbage. The chicken and waffles were dry. I had the steak which was super tough to eat. The curry chicken sandwich was just okay. All in all the ambiance was nice, but would not consider going back for the food.

Warm and welcoming is the best way to describe Reid's. Although the menu is limited, selections change daily and everything is delicious. I have dined there for both lunch and dinner. Service is excellent and prompt. The background music is very pleasant and the restaurant isn't noisy. Tables are spaced nicely apart. A few tables provide outside seating as weather permits.

As always, Reids did not disappoint. We had family in from NY and all loved all of our entrees. But. Definitely do not miss the charcuterie and cocktails and dessert too;-)

We always enjoy dining (or lunching) at Reid’s. They often change their menus, always have yummy oysters, and their drinks are also very good. Never a disappointment!

Fantastic service and attention to detail. Food was so good. Smaller portion like you get in Europe, but, variety of foods allows for expansive flavor profile. Will go back next trip to mountains.

We have been to Reid’s cafe multiple times and just can’t justify the price for the quality of the experience anymore. The food is okay - not terrific $235.00 for two people for an okay meal just doesn’t cut it anymore.

The entire evening was terrific. The menu initially seemed a bit eclectic, but each course was wonderfully prepared and presented and delicious. The restaurant was “hopping” for a Wednesday night, but the staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. I would enthusiastically recommend Reid’s to anyone looking for a nice evening out, special occasion, or just looking to enjoy a good meal.
