Always enjoyed Charlotte Street location but first time at Biltmore Ave location. Chicken salad sandwich sent back due to minuscule contents. Reuben ordered without sauerkraut sent back because it had sauerkraut.

We went here with friends for a quick Sunday morning bagel. The ham and swiss croissant called my name instead. I was not disappointed. The pastry was just the right crunch on the outside, with a nice flakiness. The ham had a nice smoky flavor and the cheese had the perfect amount of "melt". My husband got a ham and... More

The cheddar scallion biscuits were to die for! Perfect eggs! I am sure everything in there is great. I would have bought some desserts to take home but the drive would have melted them. Definitely go there, very reasonable prices for the value.

Moved here recently and this place is great to get a cup of coffee and something quick to eat! Their biscuits are yum and coffee but the guy who brings over the food isn't the friendliest. Asked him a question about a table and seemed we were bugging him.

My wife and I have been here many times for something quick. We usually share a sandwich, which is always good and fresh. I had a croissant on our last visit; she had the quiche. Both were excellent. A great place to sit outside if the weather is good.

I've been here for four years. City Bakery is in a well-traveled area. Asheville is known for the local food (from local farms) and for cleaner food products. It's who we are. I had been to CB before for a quick bite and it was horrible (burger), so that got trashed. Of course, I forgot :) . It's over a... More

Great food, quality ingredients and creative menu made for a fantastic Mother's Day brunch. We will definitely be back with a basket to take goodies home.

We ordered cupcakes for our wedding from City Bakery! From the moment we tasted the cupcakes we knew that we wanted them at our wedding (Peanut Butter Chocolate! Espresso...MMMMMM.....) They let us mix and match flavors and we were able to offer four different flavors for our guests! So many people told me how delicious they were! Sarah was great... More

My husband daughter and I ate here for the first time today. It was a very pleasant experience. They bake certain breads on different days, and one of today's was sourdough...my favorite. I had a club sandwich on sourdough, my husband and daughter had a cup of soup-of-the-day. My husband had a half of the turkey dinner sandwich and my... More
