We searched for a "real" bakery in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area and after wading through doughnut shops and various posers, came across Sassafras as a place to try. You know it's a real bakery when you walk in the door and there's fresh bread on a rack and cases of pastries and cakes. We came by in the morning for a small bite before biking and found the pastries fresh and tasty. A new pot of coffee was started just for us. We were curious about the cheesecake cookie and were promptly offered a taste.
My wife and I returned after our bike trip to pick up a couple of slices of quiche to go. The spinach w/feta and veggie w/swiss were both great.
If you're tired of looking for food while fighting the traffic through Pigeon Forge, head slightly north then west into Sevierville and look for Sassafras Bakery. If their food doesn't get you, their hospitality will.
