We stopped for breakfast before leaving town. The place was very busy but the line moved well. A nice choice of bagels and baked goods. The combination of toppings was interesting and different. The scones were good but were a little dry. The muffins and...bagels were great as well as the biscotti. They coffee was great and the service was excellent. I would visit again.More

We had breakfast, coffee, dessert, and came back for ice cream. Everything we ate was DELICIOUS. The staff was friendly, shop was clean, and the atmosphere was family friendly and relaxed. There was a little bit of a wait. But like everywhere else they were...short staffed. Would definitely eat here again.More

I visited for coffee twice and my vanilla latte, iced and hot, were perfect both times. A great blend! Though we didn’t order any bakery items, they all looked wonderful and we hope to try them in the future.

Delicious! My husband & I came to Bryson City for a quick vacation & this town literally has nothing going on during the winter. One of our favorite stops was this bakery! We must’ve came at good timing cause we came into town for a...few days & actually stopped by twice and we never had to wait nor was there a line. The oatmeal creme pies are heavenly! Truthfully the best oatmeal pies I’ve ever had, I wish we could have them shipped to us cause I would pay extra just to have them shipped to me monthly. Highly recommend this gem. Customer service was also A+More

Thankfully happened upon this gem while waiting for a seat at the diner down the street, which we mistakenly thought was the only place to get breakfast in town. We both got bagel sandwiches, no line and great service! Fresh and delicious!

La Dolce Vita Bakery became our favorite shop for coffee and breakfast. We love the local atmosphere. They have a good variety of unique coffee drinks. Biscuits and yogurt bowls are delicious. The staff is very friendly. They get extremely busy around 9 to 9:30...am with train riders coming in before they board. There are a few tables inside and a little seating outside.More

This gelato was so outstanding that they ran out of chocolate after I snagged the last cup! What a delightful place to visit far from home after a day of adventuring in the Great Smoky Mountains!

I had visited La Dolce Vita Bakery year ago before they remodeled. I am not a coffee drinker but they had great bakery items. I returned this past April and was disappointed they did not have some of the items I had been looking forward...to from my past visit. What they did have did not disappoint though. My sisters and I really enjoyed are sweet treats. It will be a regular stop whenever I am in the area. Do yourself a favor and check it out!More

We dropped by mid afternoon to perk up after hiking in GSMNP. It was so delightful we went back the next day!

The best answer right now is late August/early September but it is difficult to set at exact date as issues arise during construction that slow the process. If you follow us on social media you can see updates. See you soon!
