Our Favorite Small Businesses on Haywood Road in West Asheville
West Asheville has a thriving art, culture, music, and food scene - and Haywood Road is right at the heart of it. It's a pretty awesome place to live, and today we're listing some of our very favorite places to eat, shop, and hang out on our beloved Haywood Road in West Asheville.
In honor of Small Business Saturday, here are some of our favorite businesses on Haywood Road.
Asheville Sandwich Company
794 Haywood Rd.
11 a.m.-8 p.m.
Making a good sandwich is basically an art form, and these guys do it like no other. Asheville Sandwich Co. is a top 10 sandwich joint in Asheville according to Yelp, and their goal is, simply put, to be the best sandwich restaurant ever. We think they're killing the game. If you're in the mood for a classic (tuna melt, BLT, Cuban, Reuben, etc.) or something more adventurous, like a gluten-free, vegan sandwich, they've got you covered.
You can check out their menu and purchase a gift card online here.
794732 Haywood Rd.
M-F 11 a.m. - 7 p.m., Sunday 11 a.m. - 5 p.m.
For all the Haywood Road fashionistas on a budget, Reciprocity is a closet staple. (I got my favorite pair of black heels here.) They specialize in Free People, Anthropologie, J. Crew, Urban Outfitters, Frye, and other boho-inspired brands on deep discount. They also accept consigned items in good condition, so if you're looking to sell some gently-used treasures, Reciprocity is a great spot for that, too.

Standard Pizza Company
631 Haywood Rd. or 755 Biltmore Ave.
11 a.m.-midnight Monday-Thursday. (They close at 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.)
12 p.m.-midnight Sundays
A life without pizza isn't a life worth living, in my opinion, and that's why I love Standard Pizza. They serve up some of the best pizza in town and even stay open late on the weekends (2 a.m.!) so you can satisfy your midnight munchie cravings. They also have gluten-free and vegan options for those with dietary restrictions.
Check out their menu and treat yourself to some take out!
The Amp Shop
841 Haywood Rd.
9 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesday-Friday
9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday
The Amp Shop specializes in custom, hand-built amps as well as repair for recording and DJ equipment, effects processors, keyboards, lighting equipment, and anything else used in the music production or performance process. And they're not just limited to digital! The Amp Shop can help repair your analog music equipment, too.
A perfect place to shop for the musician in your life!
507 Haywood Rd.
11 a.m.-10 p.m.
Brunch 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday
Haywood Common is the brick-and-mortar location of the food truck Belly Up, and boy is it delicious. The menu, developed by Chef Rob Starr and his wife Hannah, has a distinctly California twist and focuses on hyper-seasonal ingredients. They source their produce and protein from local sources and farmers markets as often as possible. Also, the bartenders make a mean craft cocktail.
See their menu here.
50285 Haywood Rd.
11:30 a.m.-12 a.m. Monday-Thursday
11:30-1 a.m. Friday-Saturday
12 p.m-12 a.m. Sunday
Pizza... so nice, it's on the list twice! Pizza Mind is on the opposite side of Haywood from Standard Pizza. Its menu features not only delicious pizza but a full sandwich menu and bar with draft beer. Any time I go to Pizza Mind, I always walk away very satisfied, and very, very full. (Maybe too full.)
