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

Get there early for the best selections of home-baked breads. Very popular, so their morning stock clears out quickly.

While in Brevard this past Saturday my wife and I decided to check out Bracken Mountain Bakery. I had heard some good things about the place and was always wanting to visit it. We were not disappointed. The coffee was superb and the scones were delicious! I noticed that they make and sell German/Austrian stollen so we'll be back soon!

This bakery makes the best Artisan breads we've ever had. Each day they feature a different bread (among several others). They also have other bakery products. The staff is friendly and the prices are fair.

A busy bakery with lots of delicious breads and pastries to choose from. A morning coffee and maybe a walnut sticky bun? How about cheese danish and a tea? Loaves of bread stacked up and ready to go. You walk in and the smell is like heaven. It was crowded on Saturday morning with barely room to sit so we... More

This local couple started this bakery of fresh baked daily goods several years ago and has established a local following that is fantastic. This is not your typical "donut and sweets" shop. Their pastries and their breads are wonderful, fresh and baked with wholesome ingredients. They also serve a great cup of coffee. If you are in Brevard, or any... More

I picked up a loaf of the rosemary bread and it was perfect with the cheese we purchased at another shop a couple of blocks away. I did not try the sweets, as I had already stopped at Blue Ridge Bakery for those. (Blue ridge b. does not have bread). The storefront is a little hard to find but it's... More
