Haven't had pastries this good since visiting Vienna several months ago. The service was excellent - very kind, knowledgeable staff, that are eager to help with pastry recs.
Unlike every single other coffee shop in Asheville, this place was neither self-righteous nor pretentious. There's nothing I hate more in an Asheville coffee shops than being asked "Did you want that how Starbuck's makes it?" - referring to an order of an espresso macchiato. Coffee baristas of Asheville, realize that not only does Starbucks serve true espresso macchiatos, but most of the time it's better than what you make. Karen Donatelli is an exception. Great coffee and espresso, and literally out of the 5 other coffee shops I've been to in Asheville over the years, it's the only one not to ask me that question. That made my day.
