From vegan salads and original sandwiches, through homemade soup du jour and fresh grinds to the sinfully delectable desserts, we visit here at least monthly.

This cafe has pastry to die for. Their rugula and mountain eclair are the best to be found anywhere. This coupled with the congenial atmosphere and other food offerings are wonderful.

Best bakery by far in North Buncombe County. Wish they had more gluten free options though. Great place for lunch.

Fantastic baked goods. Haven't eaten a meal there. We are always sure to take out-of-town visitors to Well Bred for a treat. We've been there many times since they opened a number of years ago.
