Old Europe Pastries from Asheville recently opened its second location at 716 S. Main St., Greenville.
The pastry shop is open from 7 a.m.-11 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 7 a.m.-midnight Friday and Saturday.
Current menu items include desserts and espresso. The full lunch and wine program will roll out in the fall, says owner Bobby Daugherty.
Three doors down from Husk, between Custard Boutique and The Spa at West End, the 1,800-square-foot former boutique is now a bakery, coffee shop, and eventually a wine bar more than double the size of the Asheville location. Asheville does not offer lunch or wine, which was a major selling point for Daugherty on the larger location.
For more than 20 years Old Europe Pastries has been serving authentic European desserts in downtown Asheville with the original owner and baker, Melinda Vetro, still working the bakery today. Vetro is not involved with the Greenville location, but staff from Asheville is running the new store.
