We were in a time crunch and this happened to be the best place in West Asheville for a quick brunch. Loved that they just point to the coffee cups and say, "help yourself". The cinnamon rolls are huge, so I asked to split one for the two little ones in our group. They gave me two for the price... More

Good food, coffee, baked goods. Love the local art on the walls which changes about every month. Prices are fair here too. While the food is not as creative or amazing as it could be, overall, it is a reliably good place to get lunch or breakfast. The service is efficient and friendly, though some seem a bit shy, they...

We had two sandwiches, two lattes and blueberry coffee cake. Service was friendly . I was hoping the food had more fresh and unique or custom ingredients. I wish the home wrecker sandwich had even half the flavor of the grilled cheese. It was the most boring and bland sandwich ever. It needs a flavorful spread and more veggies to... More

This café in a natural foods market turned out to be a great place for a late breakfast. The breakfast burrito from the many selections at the breakfast bar was fresh, hot, and excellent as was the Yerba Matte I had with it. I would go back there anytime.

This little bakery/café is wonderful and I never miss an opportunity to go there when I am in Asheville. Great coffee, nice sandwiches---with vegan/vegetarian options. Everything is baked there--bread, cookies, pastry. I love it all, even if it seems that they are a bit heavy on the soda in the scones. But the cinnamon roles are famous. They are HUGE... More

We stumbled upon this cafe/bakery one morning and we've been going back weeklly. Really nice, caring service, unpretentious and kind. Dog-friendly on the patio (we have a Great Dane). The staff is just great, it's all casual and calm.

Nice outdoor patio, validated parking adjacent to the cafe, cinnamon rolls were outstanding, scones and muffins were dry and had very little flavor. Did not have a big selection of pastries. Checked it out cause it was dog friendly - Disappointing.

Breakfast sandwiches were delicious and very large. Not too crowded on a late Saturday morning. Plenty of seating. Casual.

Located in West Asheville along busy Haywood street sits a nice little bakery. It's a relaxing place to either get some of their delicious breakfast sandwiches, gooey cinnamon rolls or just a bowl of organic oatmeal with walnuts & bananas. They have a nice little patio section outside for when the weather is nice.
