Lots of good pastry. A popular hangout for locals and tourists alike. Good service, nice place. Ask to have your pastry heated up, especially if it's a fruit filled one.

Delicious, reasonably priced bakery/cafe. Enjoyed our visit while visiting galleries in the area-actually provides free parking for customers. The sandwiches and breads just aa good as the outstanding (huge) pasteries..in fact, next time, I'll just stick to coffee and a pastry...or two...for lunch.

I had breakfast here 3 of the 4 mornings I was in Asheville and would highly recommend it. Fantastic pastry (the cinnamon roll is awesome), friendly staff, and nice clean atmosphere!

I come to Ashevile regularly and try not to miss City Bakery. They make a great bagel, but also truly excellent sweets and breakfast sandwiches. Great coffee tops it off and yoiu cannot go wrong here.

I had a great breakfast here and they have a case full of freshly baked breakfast pastries, artisan breads and pastries to have later in the day. I ordered a dozen cupcakes for my sister's birthday and they were fantastic. Right across the street from...More

Four of us visited for breakfast on a Tuesday morning. Our breakfast sandwiches were good (my Hawaiian sandwich was delicious). It seems like a locals' hangout, with folks reading the paper, using technology and greeting each other. I can recommend City Bakery for breakfast.

We sat outside with dog and enjoyed our coffee with some food. The farmhouse sandwich was amazing! A must have. The yogurt parfait was not great.

We had the Farmhouse breakfast sandwich, the (great value!) avocado toast and a fruit-and-granola parfait. Enjoyed it all, with great coffee.

Always a good place to get coffee and a late breakfast on a weekend. The cheddar Scallion biscuits are to die for! Love these!!! Also great to take home for the next day!

There are outside tables on the sidewalk -- I don't think there would be a problem with pets there.
