Asheville and The Rhu are defined by a passion for celebrating amazing locally grown and crafted products. The Rhu, Chef John Fleer's companion to Rhubarb, is a bakery and cafe where this abundance is available to you directly. Not only can you enjoy coffee, breakfast, lunch and delectable pastries, but many of these locally and regionally produced products are available for retail purchase. You will find a wide selection of cheeses from the micro-creameries of the Blue Ridge, Benton’s bacon, Imladris jams and Sunburst Trout, among many other products.
