The food is good. The desserts are delicious! If you have a sweet tooth, this is the place for you. Even though it is usually crowded, waits for service are not long. For larger tables, be willing to share the seating. There are some smaller tables. I have been there numerous times and always enjoyed my dessert.

The food here is absolutely amazing-- I love the salads especially the Caesar kale and the regular kale salad. Beet salad, quinoa salad, and chicken salad were wonderful too. And you can't leave this place without a cookie, scone, or... More

My wife and I have been to Well-Bred numerous times and have found the food & coffee to be consistently very good. The counter staff are helpful, friendly and patient as guests try to select between numerous entrees and desserts. The menu choices change slightly, but everything we've had has been quite enjoyable whether it be the coffee, salads, cookies,... More

Another great place in Weaverville. It is a charming little bakery with amazing sweets and a delicious Kale salad. They have quiches and sandwiches as well. The chocolate eclairs are a must try.

Group of 3--Had gouda quiche, gingerbread cookie, gf oatmeal chocolate cookie, gf florentine cookie, coffee, kale salad, curried chicken salad. Everything tasted great. Delicious GF baked goods, but they're baked in kitchen with wheat flour based treats, and they're sitting in the display case with other wheat based treats. Server said: "if you're that sensitive, don't eat it." Good advice,... More
