I live in Waynesville and frequent City Bakery. Great coffee, pastries, bread, sandwiches and of course service!

We have been in town for two weeks and have been here several times. We get a sandwich and baked treat to go and find a place to have a picnic. Everything we have had is really good. Very fresh tasting food. I hope you enjoy City Bakery as much as we did.

The eclairs are nothing short of excellent. We purchased some of their homemade energy bars and had them for breakfast while photographing a sunrise in the mountains. Certainly worth a visit if you like sweets.

I was in town for a conference, and I ate here twice - breakfast/coffee and lunch. The coffee was REALLY good and I enjoyed my quiche, although I would have rather eaten a crustless quiche. There weren't many good options for low carb diets, at least for breakfast.....I went with the quiche and it had a potato "crust" which was... More

My lunch would tend to be closer to a 5 than 4, but I knocked one off for the fairly common (3 times) tendency to lose a bagel order when you ask for cream cheese in the morning. I really like the "bagels", but they are far from real bagels, but they are pretty tasty. The Reuben panini was outstanding... More

We were getting out of our car in downtown Waynesville, NC and a woman literally stopped us and said if we were looking for a place to eat to be sure and try the City Bakey Cafe. She was right. It was super. We grabbed sandwiches made on their homemade bread and headed to the back porch to eat. The... More

Love this local/regional bakery as there are two in Asheville, but the one in Waynesville is equally good! If you desire local baked pastries, excellent scallion, cheddar biscuits with egg, bacon and cheese or one of my favorites their yogurt fruit parfait with their granola or cinnamon rolls...need I go on...try City Bakery and their lunch menu is not your...

If bread makes the sandwich then City Bakery has got it down. We were there for lunch. We had the Italian Chicken Sandwich. Chicken, pesto, mozzarella and the bread was to die for. Best flavors I've had in a while. We also tried their Cous Cous salad. Very good. It's my husband's new favorite sandwich and hangout place. They have... More
