Found this place by accident and it was a great find! The staff was very friendly, especially the gentleman at the counter! He talked to every customer! The eclair was as amazing as he promised and the coffee delicious! Everything is homemade and worth the stop!

Whenever I am downtown in Asheville for dinner, I always skip dessert, stroll around town, and be sure to end up at Old Europe. Their little storefront has moved around town over the years, but their amazing selection of chef-created desserts with a European flare remains the same. The shop is small, so be prepared to eat outside on a busy evening. They are open late every night of the week, so don't worry about not getting dessert! Service is good, atmosphere is quaint though cramped. My favorite - hard to say, since everything they serve is scrumptious. I am a big fan of their cheesecake, tiramisu and chocolate torte. Coffee selections also great.

This is the only pastry in the area (2 hours from Columbia SC) that makes European style cakes: French creamy, Eclairs, Dobos, Bavarian, Rulads,Islers, etc. If you would like to have a taste of Europe, this is the place to go!

We were passing by this place and decided to grab a quick coffee while waiting on seats at another restaurant for breakfast. Much to our surprise they had the most fabulous looking homemade quiche sitting on the counter and a display full of fabulous looking pastries. We walked right up to the counter ordered our cafe au lait, 3in thick quiche and a crumpin that was stuffed with cherry, nutella and cinnamon=AMAZING! Fastest homemade breakfast that was delicious and just what I needed after a late night out. The place is pretty small but cozy and lovely with a great staff. I think it was the manager- he was sitting next to us- took my plate and heated up the crumpin for us! They also have wine and desserts. I couldn't recommend this place more, we will be back!

lovely to look at and delightful to eat! The desserts and coffee are both delicious! Lots to choose from. Not much seating though. A fun experience in downtown Asheville.
