“you won't want to miss this place...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

If you love lemon curd, try the lemon curd tart with meringue. It is fantastic!!! Don't know about the coffee or the other sweets but if they are as good as that lemon tart you won't want to miss this place.

“Fabulous Cookies!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I stopped by Karen Donatelli's the other day and had one of their Chocolate Chip & Macadamia
nut cookies. All I can say is "WOW!!!!!" They are delicious and affordable. I am never less than thrilled with whatever treat I get there.

“Amazing Pastries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Still warm and oh so heavenly...... My almond pastry was wonderful this morning. Last time I had the Pear tart and it too was delightful. coffee is excellent too. Make sure you come early to get the best selection as they make in small batches to insure the wonderful quaility. staff is very attentive. The opportunity peek in the kitchen is great......

“Coffee and Croissant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Had coffee and a tuna salad croissant at Donatelli's Bakery on Haywood Street.

Probably the best coffee in Asheville (my wife had a latte.)

Excellent croissant with tuna salad and fresh fruit.

All was very good.

“Outstanding!”

What a unique pleasure. Delicious food, excellent service and an old world atmosphere.
This is the place to go for evening and after-dinner fare.
