Wonderful bakery in quaint Weaverville!

This is a gathering place for sure -- and everything they bake is scrumptious! I have enjoyed their salads at lunchtime, quiches at breakfast, and various dessert treats -- all were wonderful. Highly recommend!

Really good bakery items, coffee and tea. The muffins and scones were exceptional. Definitely worth a stop. We shall return.

Stopped in for a quick breakfast before leaving Asheville area. Had a mocha coffee, spinach quiche and a pecan cookie. Not sure if this is routine but the bakery was chaotic and there didn't seem to be any order...just felt kind of crazy and disorganized. Placed an order but felt like the employee wasn't terribly helpful but did have a... More

The goodies here are to die for. I'm so glad I don't live close because I would weigh 500 lbs. This could possibly be the best bakery I have visited.

We had visited this week-known eatery several years ago, and were eager to return. The food is touted as farm-to-table fresh, and the bakery is tops. Well, the bakery lived up your expectations, but the food is nothing special. It is still one of the best restaurants in Weaverville, and it is worth a stop. Especially the desserts.

I am a regular customer at Wel Bred inWeaverville and I was astounded at how my guests and I were treated by your employees today. At first, I thought it was just me, until I got to our table and my out of town guests were speaking of how rude the employees were. This is not a first. Lately, there... More

My daughter and I had the key lime pie for lunch. What can I say - we were on vacation. I also had the broccoli salad. All of it was yummy.

I love these types of bakeries. So many sweets to choose from, great coffee, and delicious savory food. I had the pesto sandwich with Asian noodle salad as a side. Everything was delicious and tasted fresh. For dessert... omg, the éclair was absolutely scrumptious. I had the 'petite' one (meaning, not the size of your head) and it had about... More

Here's a promise: every item you see behind the traditional glass counter is going to be delicious. Be warned: the enormous -- almost mountainous -- eclairs will take either multiple people or multiple sittings to complete. They're worth the effort though.
