I love Geraldine's! I like getting their breakfast sandwiches, their challah is yummy, the bialys are great!


They have mastered the art of making pastries. Everything I have tried from them so far has a delectable balance of flavor and filling. You need to arrive early if you want a croissant sandwich. They sell out fast. 10/10 would recommend!

Baked a delicious birthday cake, looked as good as it tasted, and did it on short notice. Thanks!

I went in there today for the first time and all I can say is WOW what a cool spot, tons of pastry selections and great bread and buns for those all important cookouts. Service is great and the staff is totally willing to help. I will be back again and again, I highly recommend that you should go and check them out. You'll be impressed and glad you did.

An Asheville favorite, many area restaurants serve Geraldine's bread and rolls. The owners are from NY so they have NY style bagels (huge) and jewish pastries like rugelach, hamantaschen and challah. You can also get a breakfast sandwich made to order on a bagel or croissant. They have an adorable counter with a few stools for an old diner style feel and picnic tables outside. Large assortment of donuts with my fave being Boston Cream (loaded with custard). They have a delicious Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. The only thing they could improve on is their coffee which is just okay. They should serve Counter Culture coffee and get an espresso machine.

Delicious doughnuts, pastries, and danishes! The apple fritter is especially amazing. They also have great service and picnic tables for outdoor eating. No gluten free options, however.

So happy that Geraldines was open. My husband and I stopped for breakfast. I had the sausage egg and pimento cheese croissant and he had the same but with double egg and swiss cheese. The breakfast sandwich was hands down the best we've had. The croissants were themselves poetry.. we could eat a dozen all by ourselves. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely a place to keep in mind for excellent baked goods and breakfast sandwiches. If plans allow we will definitely return.

Thanks Geraldine’s Bakery for the delicious fresh baked breads! The bakery supplied a generous amount of loaves of bread to Mission Hospital. Employees last week— making this girl one happy nurse ( amongst many others)! So yummmmmmmy! Hope the reopening of your bakery is soon! Best wishes and thanks again!

Do yourself a favor! Go visit and check out their cases! The sights and smells will bring out the kid in all of you! Scrumptious. Everything is scrumptious.

Sweet place. Nice welcoming environment and great bakery treats. Excellent coffee. Civilized and human- paced. Don't tell everybody. Let's keep it our secret.

Excellent stop for a freshly baked pastry or made to order and according to your specifications, breakfast sandwich. And very good coffee.


Good, not great, picked up some breakfast pastry, owner operated, don't care for their doughnuts or chocolate cake.

Get to this place early for the best selection. I've been going here over 10yrs. My kids love a bakery treat.
