“Very Good Lunch”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

My lunch would tend to be closer to a 5 than 4, but I knocked one off for the fairly common (3 times) tendency to lose a bagel order when you ask for cream cheese in the morning. I really like the "bagels", but they are far from real bagels, but they are pretty tasty. The Reuben panini was outstanding as was my wife's Goat Cheese Evo panini.

“Great Place!”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

We were getting out of our car in downtown Waynesville, NC and a woman literally stopped us and said if we were looking for a place to eat to be sure and try the City Bakey Cafe. She was right. It was super. We grabbed sandwiches made on their homemade bread and headed to the back porch to eat. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We sat out on the porch, talked to other patrons and had a great time. Food was excellent. Wide variety of baked goods and sandwiches.

“Great Coffee, Wonderful Breakfast!”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

Love this local/regional bakery as there are two in Asheville, but the one in Waynesville is equally good! If you desire local baked pastries, excellent scallion, cheddar biscuits with egg, bacon and cheese or one of my favorites their yogurt fruit parfait with their granola or cinnamon rolls...need I go on...try City Bakery and their lunch menu is not your usual lunch sandwich either.

“Great bread and food!”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

If bread makes the sandwich then City Bakery has got it down. We were there for lunch. We had the Italian Chicken Sandwich. Chicken, pesto, mozzarella and the bread was to die for. Best flavors I've had in a while. We also tried their Cous Cous salad. Very good. It's my husband's new favorite sandwich and hangout place. They have WiFi and a wide variety of places to sit, the deck outside, cozy by the window where you can see the street, or the privacy of a booth. Great sandwiches, good service! I can't wait to go back.
