I have been searching for a bakery that is really really good. Something comparable to good bakeries in Europe.

I have tasted some great chocolate cakes, pastries in Europe.

So far this south of 485 has been disappointing when it comes to good bakeries.

There is nothing comparable to good bakeries in Europe. Even Amelie's, while very good, does not quite measure up to the patisseries in Paris.
However if you are looking for American style cakes, they looked good at Big View Diner (Lancaster Hwy)

I don't know if they are the same an European bakeries, but we have used this bakery (Ballantyne Area) several times to make cakes and they do such an excellent job. Their cakes are superb:

Charlotte Wedding Cakes | Decadent Designs Bakery | Charlotte Bakery | Wedding Cakes | Specialty Cakes | Birthday Cakes | Holiday Cakes | Brownies | Desserts | Party Trays

Also, another poster mentioned Big View Diner -- they have some terrific out of this world looking desserts as well. May be worth checking out.

Have you tried Decadent near conlan circle, ballantyne? I got two cakes from them, and their design got attention at the party.

Not sure of your location, but Java's makes baked goods. The wife(also owner) is a fantastic baker. Ordered several cakes from her and have had her pastries. It's located on the corner of Providence Rd and Newtown Rd.

My Fresh Market has breads that are comparable to breads in Europe and even better than some. You might want to look at a Hispanic bakery.

I'm not a French pastry chef, but would anyone be interested in homemade N.Y. cheesecake? I'm kicking around the idea of baking & selling --whole-- cheesecakes, in a certified kitchen of course. Any suggestions ? I make : pumpkin, chocolate fudge, brownie, chocolate chip cookie, chocolate/ raspberry, plain, turtle, just to start.
thanks, friends
