Hands down Underground Baking Co. is the best bakery in town! If you are looking for scrumptious quality breads, this is the place! What we love about UBC is that they bake all their goods w/fresh ingredients in-house. You can see & hear them working, & you can smell the goods baking! The service... read more

I moved to Hendersonville from Chicago Ill. about 6 years ago and was so happy to find this gem in my new home. I am there at least twice a week to get my stash of bread and enjoy a slice of pizza. This boutique bakery is not the standard and sure is a special spot where locals gather for... More

If you are looking for long hours and a huge selection, Underground Baking Company may NOT be the place for you. If, however, top quality, unique flavors and amazing crusts and textures are part of your criteria for choosing a bakery, you are in for a treat! Matthew is a true artist when it comes to bread. From his simple... More

The pizza is the best my wife and I have ever had. The bread is consistently fresh and delicious. And the muffins are always great. Some other reviews have complained about the tables being taken, or the selection limited. Of course the tables are often taken; people know a good thing and flock there. And as far as a limited...

I was not happy with the quality or quanity of baked goods. The hours of operation are limited so this is not a full time restaurant. On Main St there is a more complete bakery with greater choices which operates longer hours. If a good variety of quality baked goods is what you are looking for, I would chose McFarlan's.

On vacation and stopped in here for some type of bread to take back to our rental. Bought French Country Bread and Salted Pretzels. The crust is so crunchy. We couldn't stop eating it with lots of butter. Makes great toast. Pretzels were good also. Limited hours. They were busy. Very nice girls that work here. I'll be back when... More

What a pleasant surprise to find "pain d'epi", a French baguette made into a pull-apart form. This is a real bakery. Which means, if you don't get there early, they may be sold out! Lots of folks make the trek to Underground to buy their daily bread, which varies according to the day of the week. I never pass by... More

Been to Bakery in Cary and this Bakery in my opinion is as good or better. Unlike persons that write UNPLEASANT remarks and know nothing about artisan bakers they are usually out of everything by 2 PM if they are good. My suggestion to everyone try this bakery before 2 in the PM, and the treat you will enjoy will... More

Place very slow with maybe 6 people siting and its rarely open but wanted to try. Poor selection on display but saw a few cinamon buns smeared with gobs of icing. Asked man standing there if he had some with no icing. He made a face and all he said was no. Fresh Market, Harris Teeter and others have much... More

Heard a lot about this place from family. We stopped by on Saturday to try their Pecan pastry and it was very good. We also tried the raspberry coffee cake. It was very good as well. Coffee was good, but nothing to go out of your way for. It was a small place, but every table was filled so that... More
