A friend and I arrived at this Asheville bakery around 8pm. The selection was limited because this is such a popular place, and it was late in the day. We had a piece of carrot cake and a chocolate tart. Both were very, very tasty and fresh(not dried out.) The two guys taking orders and serving were extremely polite. Prices are a little higher than other bakeries, but, I am willing to pay extra for this level of quality.

There are so many things I love about Asheville. Great hippy food and hippy bakeries are on the list for sure but so is Donatelli's with it's truly delightful and exquisite pastries. My number one place for a sweet treat.

Hands down, the best cake in Asheville. Karen completed the cake for our wedding which was supposed to be just for us but, was so delicious we couldn't help but share. Her buttercream icing is probably the best I have ever had. If I have time to kill downtown, I cannot resist stopping in. I recommend ANY of the cakes. Choosing just one for the wedding was more than difficult. Karen was also extremely accomodating and easy to work with. Prices are also very reasonable compared to other places in Asheville.
