Classic local bakery providing excellent products thru-out the day. Visit on an annual basis around vacation time in the Asheville and Brevard, North Carolina areas. Coming to Bracken Mountain several times over the week is a consistent pleasure. Service is prompt. Location offers a chance to people watch across local residents and visitors. And - one can get the 'dog... More

After a poor experience at the Hob Nob restaurant my friend and I needed a treat. We were looking for ice cream but both shops nearby were very busy and we didn't want to wait. We came by the bakery as we walking back to our car and decided to stop in. So glad we did. I had a yummy... More

The coffee was average, the pastry was fair to good, and the service was not up to par with other coffee shops and bakeries we frequent at home. Will try somewhere else when we visit the area in the future.

I'm spoiled. I live in a big city with excellent artisan bakers. One doesn't expect to go to a small town and find this quality of bread. This baker is up before dawn everyday turning out delicious orange cardamon rolls (no kidding, the guy behind me complained when I bought one of the last six; he wanted the whole half-dozen),...

A first class bakery in a small mountain town. I never miss a chance to have their baguettes when in town. Their petite pain au chocolate is as good as I've had in Paris.

A lovely morning stop while traveling in the area - no time for a Big Breakfast. I judge bakeries by the croissants (one can't skimp on the ingredient quality or the time it takes to make croissants). 1) Bracken Mountain does make them and 2) they are wonderful! My husband had a muffin and gave it a thumbs-up. We purchased... More
