Opened in 2018, Button & Co. Bagels is chef Katie Button and team's newest Asheville restaurant. Located on Lexington Avenue, it's a take on the classic bagel shop, inspired by Asheville's Appalachian roots, with a focus on sustainability and local ingredients. Bagels are made onsite using a house-made sourdough starter and blend of local, single variety flours from Asheville grain miller, Carolina Ground. Guests choose from plain, rye, salt, benne seed, seeded and everything varieties and seasonal flavors like fig & sorghum, served with toppings ranging from house made gravlax, smoked trout cream cheese and smoked sable rubbed in wild sumac to several toppings and fruit preserves and seasonal schmear made in collaboration with Three Graces Dairy in Madison County. Button & Co. Bagels also offers a line of house made and bottled sodas in classic flavors such as celery and strawberry along with freshly squeezed orange juice for guests to enjoy.
