Scones to Die For

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... read 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!

After a lunch nearby we were walking through Brevard when we stumbled upon Bracken Mountain Bakery. Unfortunately, due to our timing most of their goods were already gone. We were able to purchase a variety of cookies for the drive home. They were delicious! Nice crunch and yet soft and chewy. We purchased coffee as well. Mine was great, regular,... More

Sticky buns had no flavor and was dry. Blackberry scone was just ok. Cream cheese Danish was ok. Orange cinnamon roll was very good. We will probably check out a different bakery next time we visit Brevard.

Wonderful breads and pastries. The hard rolls here are hard rolls similar to what I grew up with in NYC. The best in my opinion. I love it when my husband brings home a roll after his work out. Just butter it and I enjoy dunking it in my coffee Their scones are also wonderful. In the summer there is... More
