West End Bakery is a local establishment that represents the best of what West Asheville has to offer. This is a fine ingredients-conscious bakery with an excellent selection of breads and muffins (including vegan selections). But they are just as skilled at making breakfast and lunch sandwiches using the freshest ingredients. There are plenty of choices available for vegetarian/vegan tastes too.

West End Bakery is clearly a local hang-out where folks set for a spell, but keep it in mind when you want a high quality lunch to go as well.

The food was so good; try the cinnamon roll. You'll want to keep going back, as we did. Service is more than a bit flaky, but with some nudging, you can get what you need. the bread was excellent, homemade granola a treat. Can't go wrong with this place.

Even after being reprimanded by counterhelp for not standing correctly in line, I have to recommend this spot heartily and satisfyingly. To leave the sleeping grandbaby I was visiting from out of town, I went nearly every morning for a ME quiet wakeup time, and it fit the need entirely. Watch out that you line up along the counter, tho, if there is noone there modeling how to do iti, NOT off the counter!

This was our first stop for food in Asheville. Place was crazy busy but the staff seemed used to it and up to the task. I went with The Southern; a grilled sandwich with Ham and Pimento Cheese, while the wife had the Coq Au Vin Chicken Salad; a Chicken Salad sandwich. It took a bit to get them, due to the sheer number of orders in front of us, but eventually they arrived and all was well. My only complaint would be that mine couldve been grilled a little longer. The Pimento was just kinda room temperature, but overall it was still quite good.
Also, it was nice to find a coffeehouse that actually had quality photography for sale on its walls. Instead of the usual boring, amateur, touristy stuff. Kudos on that.
