This little coffee shop/bakery makes absolutely the best blueberry muffins on the planet and the baguettes are pretty good too. Locals gather for coffee in the morning and you'll have a real authentic small-town experience. And did I say the best blueberry muffins on the planet?

This little bakery has a lovely selection of breads and a small selection of pastries and they are all EXCELLENT. However, in the summer they usually run out by noon !!! The coffee is one of those self serve filter coffee thingamajigs & I believe if there were a better selection of coffees the place would be packed all day... More

I've only visited the Bakery for baked goods - I've heard from friends that they do excellent lunches as well. They even prepared special "pineapple upside down cupcakes" for my husband's birthday and their German Chocolate is a traditional favorite.

I always buy my bread at this Bakery. The Bracken Mountain Bread is like no other. I also love their cranberry maple scones. So good.

There isn't a thing here that isn't amazing: gooey raisin bread, brioches, melt in your mouth scones and fabulous Pesto Parmesan Baguettes! Match with great coffee and chocolate dipped strawberries on special occasions and u have a real find!

Whenever we are in Brevard, we like to visit Bracken for scones and coffee. We've eaten scones all over the country and Bracken's dried cherry scones are the best -- great texture, great taste and lots of cherries. They make other delicious varieties like bittersweet chocolate, raspberry, and others. Besides scones, Bracken also bakes a variety of breads (we like... More

We are always treated like a local in this little bakery. Their bread doesn't contain anything artificial. The scones are great too.

My adult son and I stopped by on our way to Pisgah Forest. We ordered one of every cookie to try and especially loved the lemon blueberry one. In addition, we ordered a loaf of the blue cheese pecan bread and coffee. I had the coffee with blood orange and chocolate syrups to drink on the way to Looking Glass... More
