People magazine said an Asheville restaurant has the best breakfast in North Carolina.

In it's October issue, People partnered with the food-travel experts at Yelp to compile its Most Popular Breakfast in Every State list.

Abeja's House Cafe, a family-run eatery on Hendersonville Road in South Asheville, opened just three years ago, but owner Raphael Roman and his family have created a name.

People worked with Yelp editors, and restaurants were ranked according to several factors, including total volume and scores.

Roman was shocked when the October issue of People came out.

"We never expected something this fabulous. We knew we were doing everything the right way, with the heart. We put love in every single dish we cook," Roman said.

People credited Abeja's for prioritizing local and organic ingredients.

"This cafe emphasizes Latin flavors like its signature Huevos Rancheros with eggs, tomatillo salsa, roasted potatoes, refried black beans, chorizo, feta, avocado cream sauce and corn tortilla strips while prioritizing local and organic ingredients," People said of Asheville restaurant.
