Fresh apple streusel pie @ Bracken Mountain Bakery
Bracken Mountain Bakery specializes in crusty European-style breads and pastries, as well as American regional favorites.

The bakery uses organic flours and many other organic ingredients in their made-from-scratch products each morning. No wonder Bracken Mountain Bakery is regularly voted among the Best of WNC by local Mountain Xpress readers.

Peppermint cold brew @ Cup & Saucer
Cup & Saucer serves fresh, house-made baked goods and specialty coffee with ethically-sourced beans roasted by Methodical Coffee in Greenville, SC. We spotted their classic cold brew topped with homemade peppermint whipped cream and a marshmallow on Instagram and fell in love. Not in the mood for coffee? Enjoy a hot chocolate, golden milk latte, or more with your fresh coffee cake muffin, scone, or cinnamon knot with cream cheese glaze.
