If you live in Bellevue or if you don't and are willing to drive a little to get quality breads and pastries that you can't find anywhere else, this is the place. Their cakes are first quality. Their breads fresh and so good you will want to just eat them without anything on them. The pastries esp the croissants and snowballs are to die for. I haven't found anything near this quality anywhere else in the Nashville area. I can find things here that I ate while living in Japan that no one else makes. This small business is locally owned and its employees work very hard. Highly recommended. They serve an incredible brunch in the mornings as well.
Make sure you check their hours, not open Monday or
late evenings. They make everything fresh daily so come early or call to order to avoid disappointment.
I'm impressed. Interesting items.. I grew up a few miles from this bakery and never noticed it. When I finally did, I was so happy to find such an eclectic mix of products. I had a sampling of pastries, tiramisu, and cookies (I shared!) and took home a loaf of their sourdough and their rye. I look forward to returning to try their cakes and other breads. I am really impressed that they produce so much with so little space in the back. The cashier was not able to answer most of my questions but tried. The place really needs a makeover, but I will definitely be a repeat customer.
Good food, not so good service. I like to come here despite the fact that it is out of my way because I really like the bread and pastries. My favorite bread is fan bread. The pastries I like most are the danishes and eclairs. The curry pan is also tasty. The service is questionable though. The signs everywhere do convey a negative attitude. My family and I went there once about thirty minutes til closing. The cashier asked if we were getting it to go, because the store was closing soon. Sounded like a thinly disguised "Get out" to me, which was not appreciated since I just got a large order. The barbecue sandwich was NOT GOOD either.
Best Bakery In TN. I used to work in Brentwood area for a long times ago, even though now i am not work there, but i still go back there for the cake, i love the strawberry cake, every time my family and i have party going on i always call to oder some cakes, I love the breaks and cake, drink, i think this is the best place in TN, I don't think they have a bad services, they do the jobs, and working hard everyday, you should tips them, not complaint. Because they are working really hard for your food. Gob Bless the own, with every single person work in Alpha bakery, My family and I would like to say Thank you Very much for your food . best wish!!!
Light flaky pastries, fresh breads, great variety. I love the light, buttery pastries. The almond croissant is especially good-buttery and sweet at the same time. They have a great variety-everything from cakes, to french type breads and even a few Asian style breads. This place shines over chain store bakeries. After eating here, eating from the grocery store bakery is like eating cardboard. I highly recommend the fresh raisin breads, the croissants, and the strawberry cake.
best bakery. I took my daughter out to lunch here. The apricot danish was delicious!!! I had to by a loaf of cinnamon bread to take home, which was also wonderful.
Nothing improves quality of life like a wonderful bakery.
This rating is limited to the bakery side of the business. The pastries are as good as any I've had in NY, Paris, or Hong Kong. The cake is what cake should be. A perfect crumb, a refreshing, balanced sweetness, and right on target with moisture. The cake is also a wonderful foil for delicate frostings and fresh fruit. The breads I've tasted are flavorful with great texture, crispy crusts, and extraordinary toastablility. Cookies were also superior. If I had one negative comment it would be their limited selection (compared to the NY bakeries of my youth) however I'd much rather see a few things done well than a slew of average offerings.
On the lunch side, one outing with three family members offered mixed results including dry eggsalad and overly worked chicken salad.
extrodinary quality, reasonable pricing,. Very unique. outstanding quality and originality. Mrs Chen is truly a jewel of a person.. She and her staff, are constantly providing the best and tastiest products in Nashville. They offer the European flair of great hearth baked breads, croissants and danish, and the exotic cakes such as Taro roulade and the smooth and melt in your mouth, strawberry cakes. The German Rye, and 3 seed fruit-nut and grain breads are just two of my favorites -both excellent and healthy. There is no better Challah breads to be found in Tenn. The almond croissants and sliced apple danish go very fast. Alpha is definitely worth a daily visit for all bakery needs. A treasure of a destination!!!!!
worst customer service ever. my daughter and grandchildren went with me to alpha bakery for lunch. when i got my sandwhich it took two bites before i realized i got egg salad instead of chicken salad. when my daughter took it back to the counter they said they would give me 20 per cent off a chicken salad sandwhich but i had to pay for the egg salad because i ate two bites. the manager refused to talk to me. two ladies sitting at the next table couldn't believe what just happened. they said they have been patrons there for a while but the customer service had been getting worse. they got up and left their food and said they would not return. i have never been treated so rudely before.
Rules, rules!. I didn't have time to read all the signs put EVERYWHERE! Rules about this, rules about that. Don't the owners know this is NOT the way to get comeback customers. It's cheap and presents a negative attitude. I got to the bakery 1 hour before closing and ordered 3 sweet rolls. Then I saw "the sign" that said it would be appreciated if I would order $5 worth if using credit card. Didn't want to spend that much, but felt I had to. Signs on the register, signs on the door, signs everywhere to correct your behavior unless you do something the owners have learned they don't like! Everybody takes up for them, but I say they have issues against somebody!
