The cheddar-scallion breakfast biscuits are to-die for, with light, fluffy eggs and your choice of protein and cheeses.

City Bakery on Charlotte St is my favorite place for breakfast. The coffee is excellent and the breakfast menu selection is yummy. This does not have a touristy feel at all. It's where locals go to start their day.

Super tasty bakery with yummy sandwiches and soups. Simple menu but just right! We like to take some bread back home after our lunch! It's a regular stop for us in Asheville.

City Bakery was recommended to us by a local resident. We were very happy. The breads & bakery items are hand made with fresh ingredients. The sandwiches were very good & large. (you could split with another if you feel so inclined) Very nice staff & fair prices.
