An Asheville institution since 1994, Old Europe delights patrons with authentic European-style pastries, tortes, shortbreads, cakes, cookies and strudels, based on the old-world recipes of owner and head pastry chef Melinda Vetro.

Originally from Esztergom, Hungary, Melinda also creates international favorite savories like warm, flaky ham and cheese croissants, scones and quiches, perfect for intimate breakfasts and catered corporate events alike.

Hand-crafted coffee beverages, Italian sodas, champagne and wine round out the menu of this inviting cafe, open late and serving delectable gluten-free and vegan items, too. Pet-friendly.
