Not what I expected. We wanted brownies, but they are available only on Friday and Saturday. The pastry selection was minimal--no cakes of any kind. We bought scones, which were average. Not a typical bakery, in my opinion. We're from a small town in Indiana that has an excellent bakery, so maybe we're spoiled.

Loved the scones we got! Even got some to go! Lots of locals seemed to be there which is always a good sign! Loved all the posters on the walls! Funny and very cute! Staff was very nice and helpful! Be aware it is tiny inside but who can’t walk and have a scone or cookie???

Their cupboards were rather bare. Did have a croissant and cookie with my young nephew and were able to find a table easily. However, it is on one of the main streets so wasn't hard to find. We were there around midday so was surprised there was so little to choose from.

Hi there,
I'm sorry you didn't get to see and partake in our vast display of goodies.
Yes, some days we sell out rather quickly especially during the summer and even more so on Friday and Saturdays ( and we try to make as much extra on these days as we can) and some days we have quite a bit left.
Everyday we make over 26 different flavors of croissants, danish, scones, muffins, and brioche.
There is a selection of 10 different kinds of cookies and on Friday and Saturday there is 2 different kinds of brownies to choose from.
We have at minimum 15 different kinds of bread daily (some days there are more) and 4-5 different flat breads and savory rolls.
The comment we get the most is that we have too many choices and it's hard to decide which one to pick.
We are one of those places that bake at capacity and still sell out. No matter how much we try to plan nobody can predict how busy a day is going to be but we prepare and bake as much as we can in the hopes that everyone gets the goodies they want.
Most locals know to either call ahead and place an order days in advance, call the day of and have us set aside what they want, and to get here early in the day before we sell out.
Being rated #1 in places to eat in Brevard on here, rated 4.9 the highest of restaurants on Facebook, 4.79 on Yelp, and Voted best coffee and sweets 5+ years running WNC's Best of WNC keeps our shelves bare no matter how much extra we bake.
I hope that if you get the chance to visit with us again there will be more of our selection left for you to choose from and you will be able to see why we sell out so early.
Ya'll enjoy your summer and God bless!
