After touring Biltmore, a girl gets hungry...I'm here to rave about City Bakery, which was conveniently right across the street from our hotel. Open at 7 am, we enjoyed wonderful croissants and bagels of many varieties which expanded into "to-go" sandwiches and desserts. So, were I to go again, I'd hit City Bakery Café FIRST, and fortified, head on to... More

Nice variety of cakes and breads here as well as prepared sandwiches. Nice place to sit inside or outside for coffee and cake. Our only issue was lack of vegan options which are abundant in Asheville.

Great breakfasts with fresh fruit and yoghurts. Really good coffee which has taken us a week and many miles to find. Pleasant staff and comfortable seats too.

We went in looking for a snack but there were mainly cakes & we wanted something savory. The warm turkey sandwich was unexpectedly delicious. The siracha really took it to another flavor level!

I can only speak to peach pie, rosemary rolls and chocolate raspberry cake...they were all awesome. Bought to take home. Service was good, friendly. Large portions, more than enough to share after dinner and with breakfast in the morning.

The cup cakes were average nothing to rave about. The coffe and chocolate drink were week and tasted of old ice. Would not go there again.

Went to this place on two of my four mornings in Asheville. The coffee is great, the food is really delicious, and it is fast and easy and casual!

We stayed at the Aloft hotel across the street and decided we wanted another less expensive option for breakfast. We started going to this place everyday. They have a small but nice menu for breakfast including their scallion biscuit sandwiches. Delish. Plenty of room, wifi and great location. Recommend.

I like this place for breakfast now and then. It is not my favorite bakery in AVL, but still quite good. You will also find their bread served at several other restaurants in town.
