Treat yourselves to the best deserts anywhere! When you walk in your are faced with so many choices in the display case you will want to double or triple your order. The food is also wonderful and the location in downtown Weaverville is perfect. You can walk the street to visit galleries and shop while eating your fabulous desert!

I was a loyal patron of this fabulous bakery/cafe until we moved away. It is a real gem in the great little city of Weaverville, NC which is about a ten minute drive from Asheville. The bakery items are renowned in Asheville and people drive here to taste the unbelievable pastries. The Well Bred also serves excellent lunch and dinner... More

Everything is fabulous: the sandwiches, salads, quiche's, cookies, coffee; the staff, the owner, and if I had to pick one thing out of the pastry case it would be the best eclair I have ever had in my life. Just be forewarned: if you get the "mountain eclair" you want at least one other person to share it with you,... More

This is a local bakery for me and I feel lucky to have one of such quality near by. I've never had anything I didn't like there and we get there quite often. They have a wonderful selection of very tempting deserts - one of the simplest things I like are the chocolate orange cookies - one of the best... More

My schedule didn't allow me to visit for a few months but thank goodness that's past. There were a few excellent variations on their amazing quiches and I tried the crustless Bacon and Gouda. So delicious! I thought I would bring home one of their outstanding eclairs, but ... I still had coffee left at our cozy corner table. It... More

Stopped for lunch after a 4 hour auto drive. We had quiche and a strata. Both were mouth watering. Ice tea was refills free. The taste was great. A couple with us had sandwiches which were delicious. Soup was white bean and also good. The desserts were outstanding. I looked at them and drooled.

Well Bred has excellent pastries and other baker goodies. The chocolate cake can't be surpassed and the huge chocolate orange cookies are a delight. Another personal favorite is the Swedish Creams just the right smooth sweetness. Also offered are a number of savory salads, sandwiches and quiches. A great place to gather for a latte and snack..or two.

Most everything is superb here! I gave 4 stars because the prices are up there a little - not horrible, but a little heavy.
