Filo Pastries & Coffee
FILO is the creation of pastry chef Maria Papanastasiou who had a dream of bringing European cafe culture to asheville, a dream born of summers spent in Greece, savoring lazy afternoon with friends at the local cafe.
Yum! Yum!: I absolutely love this place. We have only been 4 times, but we have been impressed each and every time. We are devoted fans. The remodeled historical building is awesome, inside and out. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. If Filo was located in a more noticeable location it would be packed because their cookies, pastries, cakes, sandwiches, brownies, and other finger lickin' good goodies are some of the best in WNC. Hmm, maybe they should open a second store front. Man, I wish that we had found this place earlier. Now that I have tasted the best and experienced the cool, contemporary atmosphere...meet me for coffee at Filo!!!
This place is cool, has a friendly at home atmosphere. The inside is cute, they have a table that you can play chess at while you are there.
I had a carrot cake cupcake, the icing was perfect. Not too sweet, and not too dense, or sugary. And the cake part was excellent, moist, and delicious. My wife had a piece of chocolate cake, which looked thick, but when I tasted it, it was light in texture and not too much of a chocolate flavor.
The espresso was excellent too, I drink a quad everyday before work at starbucks, and Filo's was three times as tasty as starbucks. I'm a huge espresso fan, so this was a big deal to me. I like to think I'm a espresso purist, even though I drink it from 'Bucks.
So go in, and enjoy their delicious pastries, and drink their perfect brewed espresso. You'll be happy when you leave! :)
