I haven’t been in a bakery like this since I was a kid. It has anything you want when it comes to fabulous homemade goodies. Chocolate eclairs and cream horns are unbelievably delicious. Can’t wait to go back and try pumpkin pie.

We stopped to buy pastries to enjoy back in our hotel. There were so many options it took us a while to pick 5. We ordered the lemon chess pie, which was new to us. It was rich and delicious.

The traditional eclair was the largest I've ever had and absolutely delicious! Also bought a few cookies to eat later on and they were yummy as well. Wish I could have tried more things!

Went to Hendersonville for apples and shopping and found this wonderful bakery. Their banana bread is so good. Their cookies wonderful! Wish we lived nearby! The girl who waited on us was so sweet.

My wife and I enjoyed apple fritters and bear claws. These things are as good as you’ll find. Hard to choose what to buy, they have a large selection of sweets. A little on the pricey side but worth it.

Best bakery I have ever visited. Everything is made from scratch and is delish! Apple fritters ate my favorite! Cakes, pies, cookies, pastries. You name it, they got it. Friendly, knowledgeable, patient staff
