I love going into this place. Breads/sandwiches are great, mocha latte is fine, cookies are WONDERFUL. They also have breakfast. Their bagels are great/chewy. They supply many local restaurants with fresh bread, too.

I got the best eclair I have ever eaten! It was big, full of Bavarian cream, and the chocolate icing was perfect. My husband got the new york style cheesecake which was mouthwatering goodness. The bakery also served what my husband calls REAL coffee as well as coffee house coffee. They have sandwiches as well as baked goods but I... More

Chive biscuit with cheese and egg. Need I say anymore. Coffee was great and hot. Outdoor seating was small but very nice.

For fresh, delicious, creative egg sandwiches (scrambled with goat cheese, spinach on fresh all grain toast) there is no better place to get them than this cool spot in downtown Asheville (there are 2 locations one is just outside the DT area). With comfy couches and tables spread throughout this hip spot, grab the best lavender infused honey chai tea... More

Grabbed breakfast at this local bakery on the way out of town. Loved the local feel and atmosphere. Easy to get in and out of and very casual. Delicious food that was far more than bakery options. I enjoyed the gluten free quiche and salad. My girlfriends loved they ham, egg and cheese biscuits.

Great cafe. Perfect location in the heart of it all, delicious coffee and amazing sandwiches! Try the grilled 4 cheese with bacon or the chocolate croissant. My wife also liked the hot cocoa.

I work nearby, and if I could eat a City Bakery Hawaiian Breakfast Sandwich every day I think I would. Soft, sweet housemate roll toasted with ham, bacon, avocado, Swiss cheese, and paprika aioli. It is heaven in my mouth, and I find it hard to resist coming in at least once a week just for that sandwich. Check it... More

Not only was the bread and the cookie overpriced, but I bought a bag clearly labelled "French baguette" and it was either mislabeled sourdough or the worse French baguette ever. OF course, we didn't discover this until we were on the road, so not only did we toss it out and lose the money, but we didn't have any bread... More

CityBakery, Manager at City Bakery, responded to this review

Thanks for the feedback. Sorry you didn't enjoy your items at City Bakery. The prices reflect the quality of our ingredients. The French Baguette has a pate ferment, which gives it a sour flavor. Our baguettes and cookies are also baked fresh daily. Hope you will give us another try on your next visit. Sincerely, The City Bakery Team More

Out of the ordinary sandwiches, very fresh, local ingredients. I had the "Avogoddess" - avocado, sprouts, tomato, feta. My friend had the Reuben. Can't be beat, with great chips. Nice selection of drinks. Good strong coffees

It's a great idea and at a very resonablely priced for the loaf. The winter Russian rye was great. The Ramps and cheese in the Spring is a special for sandwiches . Good coffees too
