Where are Sticky Buns in Asheville?
I headed out to find the ultimate sticky bun this morning while I'm in Asheville for the week. I went to City Bakery but they said they only make them in the summer. Bummer. Where in town can I find a memorable sticky bun?
Hmmm. that's weird, I wonder why only summer?
The best sticky I have had in WNC is at Wildflour Bakery in Saluda. There is a whole bike ride devoted to acquiring Wildflour stickies. The crowd leaves from Furman U. in Greenville SC and makes the 60 mile round trip in summer.h
That's a good drive out of Asheville, unfortunately, as is Flat Rock Village Bakery where every baked good is divine.
In Asheville proper , you could try: West End Bakery, Sisters McMullen (if not the regular store then the Cupcake place), or perhaps even the bakery at Greenlife or Earthfare (grocery stores).
Let us know the results of your quest.
BTW, if City Bakery offers a bear claw , eat it. It's like no other bear claw.
