Stopped in here for desert on our way home and it was a very good experience. Had a cold coffee and a pastry which seemed fresh and was very delicious. Will stop by again when im in town.

Hole-in-thewall pastry + coffee shop. Pastries are the stars of the show. My blueberry muffin was fine but over-priced. Brewed coffee was average, pre-brewed, one-type-fits-all, although they have the usual assortment of steamed-milk stuff. Overall a decent place. Go for the pastries. Coffee- - meh.

This is our favorite cafe to be at while traveling in the area. Their coffee is great, and their gourmet pastries are delicious and fantastic. #MelindasCake is the best!

We're so glad you stopped in and enjoyed! Melinda's Cake is a special cake recipe by the owner - Melinda - so it's definitely a favorite in the shop!

The name of this place is "Old Europe" and it truly does look like you could be in an eatery in Europe when you walk through the door. Choose a slightly secluded corner or sit at a little table outside to enjoy your coffee and...More

I went to a few different coffee places during my visit, but Old Europe just has the best coffee in Asheville. Thank you Katie for hand crafting perfect mocha lattes.

The pastries were a bit dry and coffee was average. The location is amazing but we were let down with the the food and drink.

We were walking in Asheville and it decided to down pour... we hopped into this little pastry shop and had coffee, tea, cookies, and muffins! All of which were to die for! If you get a chance try their mint tea and lemon shortbread!

an eclair for $5. a cup of coffee for $3.5. get a bigger place you are in a closet with pillars. and the pastries aren't the best in town.
