One of the finest bakeries in Texas

A true gem, this bakery was a fantastic surprise. Crisp and tender croissants, a delicious selection of cookies, bars, muffins, cakes, and pies, as well as an array of breads. The ham and cheese croissant is one of my favorites, as is the spinach and feta. The epi bread is superb. Worth the carbs.

Ravelin has been serving up baked goods in Denton for years. Everything is so delicious, it's hard to choose. The White Chocolate Lemon bread is awesome, but they only make it 1 day a week and it sells out fast. We like to get a sweet bread and make french toast with it. Their muffins and croissants are to die... More

This small shop is not fancy to look at but it is THE place to go in Denton for delicious breads, cookies, pastries and other baked items. It's a bakery rather than a restaurant so seating is limited at best. After returning from a trip to France I had a craving for a chocolate croissant. It was at least as... More

The oversized muffins are to die for! They also have fresh baked breads that are quite yummy! Wide selection to choose from daily.

I visit this bakery twice a week for their breads. Scallion-walnut, lemon-white chocolate, rye, etc. Addictive stuff.

One can tell in the first bite that only the highest ingredients are used. The freshly grated cinnamon in the cinnamon buns elevated both the flavor and quality! The Russian Tea cakes melt in the mouth! Breads can be sliced on the spot, and are all delicious! A few tables around the bakery serve as a place to enjoy freshly... More

Ravelin is the only specialty bakery in Denton where you can get great bread, pastries, scones and other baked goods all in one place. They are very popular and sell out of their most popular items early. I love their scones and specialty breads. Their food is as pretty as it is tasty and is the perfect thing to take... More

Stopped by today to buy some of their ravenously good cheese breadsticks. None on display. Man in charge says they will no longer be baking them as they are too "labor- intensive." I drive all the way from Fort Worth to buy these. I am not so much a sweet eater, but more a fan of savory items. I would... More

My favorite place in Denton. Not only are the baked goods excellent. The place has the best vibes. Be nice if everyone on the planet was as nice and pleasant as the folks who own the bakery,and all the help is just as nice and pleasant. My day is always a little better after having spent in few moments in... More
