Creme Patisserie is Open

December 18, 2008

There’s a new neighborhood bakery in town, and it’s just a few blocks from my house!  I haven’t eaten there yet, but here’s the skinny:

640 Merrimon Ave- in the shopping center with Urban Burrito and Zen Sushi.

Open Mon-Fri 8am-6pm

Saturday 9am-4pm

They offer:  3 daily breads (today is Challah, baguette, and multigrain)

-Muffins, soft pretzels, pastries

-Truffles, chocolates, petit fours

-They take orders for cakes 48 hours in advance

-They bake all things fresh every morning 

-They don’t have a website

Your Mission, should you choose to accept it:

Try Creme, and report back to base camp.

Update:  I walked in at 2pm Saturday and was disappointed to find just a very few sparse offerings in their bakery case.  The meager selection of linzer cookies were just not doing it for me.  The place looks great, but I think they need to bulk up their selection before I can get too excited.

2nd Update:  Best cinnamon roles in all of Asheville.  BEST.  There is something to be said for focusing specifically on just a couple of items, and essentially perfecting them in the process.  It’s all about quality not quantity at Creme Patisserie.
