I wish I didn't work around the corner from this place because it's quickly becoming a guilty pleasure. I've tried tons of things and find something new and delicious each time. If you're in the Brevard area looking for a great breakfast snack or artisan breads, this is the place to go!

Every Spring, about eight guys from Ontario travel to this area for a week of road cycling. I do the cooking for the group, and found the bread in this region to be disappointing. Having stumbled upon Bracken Mountain Bakery a few years ago, this year I booked a bunch of baguette and sourdough and rode my bike over from... More

I have been buying bread and other goodies from here for a number of years, always been very satisfied. It reminds me of the bread I have gotten in Europe. good flavor and texture, I am kinda partial to their Italian loves.

not what comes to mind when you think small town bakery. The bread has it times. If you are looking for something out of the norm it is for you but stick with ingles if you just want a loaf of bread for dinner. Mainly just breads and hours could use alittle hours.

This amazing little bakery is definitely worth a visit when you find yourself in Brevard. Whatever it is that Starbucks sells as a scone, it has nothing in common with the incredible scones you will find here. Raspberry, dried cherry, blueberry, blackberry, chocolate and more; each one is better than the last. Just make sure you visit early in the... More

We have visited the Bracken Mountain Bakery many times over the years when we are in Brevard. It has always had fresh and interesting pastries and other breakfast type baked goods. But what we like best is their strong selection of fresh baked breads. Whoever their baker is, he or she certainly know what they are doing. You just can't... More

This little mountain bakery has delightfully tastey pastries that one would expect to find in a major city, but not in a sleepy mountain town. Plain, chocolate, and walnut croissants, several different varieties of scones, and cherry, coconut lime,, and strawberry Danishes are among our favorites. I also recommend their sunflower bread.

Stopped in to grab something on our way to the bike trails. Nice little atmosphere, friendly service. There were lots of different breads to choose from, but we weren't really there to buy a loaf of bread. Tried the chocolate chip brioche and a banana chocolate scone. The brioche was okay, a bit heavy for brioche. It should be light... More

and breads, scones, coffee, etc. If they have lime coconut pastries you have to try them. We typically would take goodies home with us. One morning we stopped in for coffee and a pastry. Fun to see the locals interact with one another as well as enjoy the food!
