Mini-macaroons!

A delicious quaint bakery with the best mini chocolate chip macaroons! A great place to meet a friend for lunch or a quick pick me up after a bike ride. Great coffee drinks too!

This is a hopping and happening place - busy even at 2 pm! It's easy to see why. The baked goods are more than tempting. I had the salad sampler plate, which was fantastic -- pea salad, curried cauliflower and rice, and curry chicken salad. Yum. We friends then shared a cookie - also yum.

Everything we ate was delicious. The kale salad (which I never like) was absolutely delis ious! It was not bitter at all. My favorite of all the lunch things I tasted. The desserts are AMAZING!!!!! The best creme brûlée I have ever had! All portions were hardy. Also loved the orange chocolate cookie, toffee and pecan honey bar.

Love the atmosphere in the historic space and seeing all the baked goods, sides and salads in the display case. All foods are attractively prepared and displayed making it hard to decide!! Excellent chicken salad, carrot cake and so much more. Great sandwiches made to order, coffees and teas. Service is excellent. Place order at counter and seat yourself.

Several of my friends who come to Asheville/Weaverville always ask to go to THE bakery for lunch. Recently a friend from Fletcher was visiting, and, with several choices within walking distance, HE wanted to go to Well Bred for a supper after wine tasting at Maggie B's. I usually get curry chicken salad and pasta salad. My favorite purchase is... More
