Had the ham and cheese croissant, FANTASTIC!!! Wanted the almond one but they sell out fast. Will go early to get almond, hear they are great.

Had a small fruit tart that was excellent.

Clean place, nice people.

Cakes are unbelievable, and every visit to Donatelli's is a feast for the eyes and mouth. Quite simply my favorite croissant in the world, and that includes many visits to France! Make this stop for breakfast or snack while in Asheville.

We were walking down the street after dinner and found this place by accident. We were shocked by the number of desserts they had available. They were all beautiful & enticing so we were excited to see that they had mini versions of most items -so we tried 4 different desserts... ALL were soo delicious, obviously made by someone who cared. In addition to trying 4 mini desserts in house, we actually bought some eclairs to go too!

We ended up meeting Karen, not even realizing she was the owner. She was so kind and spoke with such love in her voice. We were so impressed by her, her staff, and her food. Now a DEFINITE stop every time we are in Asheville!

If I were a Jelly Fish I could live at Donatelli's and never feel bloated from eating too much. As a human, it is a more complicated issue. There are so many good things to choose from. I want them all... but alas, I am not a Jelly Fish.
