“Great lunch stop.”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

Their wide selection of breads is the best in the area. Prices are reasonable and the staff is very pleasant. I first tried their brezels at the Southern Appalachian Brewery in Hendersonville. Decided to try it for lunch since we were in the area. Ordered their pizza and was amazed at how good it is. Believe me you need order just one slice, the various pizzas come out of the oven at 11:30 am. Be there when they first come out. Great selection. They have limited seating so get there before noon. They do have carry out also.

“Very Good”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

Great bakery...but not really more than a stop to pick up some pastry items. It's closed some during the week so make sure you check the hours before you go. The chocolate pound cake is good.

“Fantistic bread and pastries”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

When we moved a to Hendersonville, I assumed that the wonderful baguettes and pastries we could get in the DC area were a lost part of our lives. Underground Baking Co proved me wrong! The baguettes are as good as any I've ever gotten in the US, and their croissants are as good as any I've had in France! Their scones are just right, not the crumbly dry things people usually call scones.
In addition to the wonderful baked goods, the people who work there are always efficient and friendly. It's a good thing they're only open four days a week or I'd weigh 500 pounds!

“Hit it up on Saturday!”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

We swung by on Saturday morning for breakfast. Any crankiness we had from being up so early on Saturday dissipated once we bit into a bacon, egg and cheese brezel. I didn't even know such deliciousness had been invented! The custard filled "eclair" was shaped like a softball sized cream puff. So so much custard filling!! Yum. The french style bread was so good, we ate it plain. This is one place we'd definitely come visit again the next time we're in the area.
